 This is Carolyn Gudger, an armed resource officer that stopped a
 massacre from taking place at a school by drawing her firearm and
 detaining the shooter before he could initiate an attack. We never
 heard about this hero because saving lives isn't as controversial as
 taking them, thus this story isn't as profitable for the media and
 politicians to exploit. Believe or not, good people with guns save lives
 at a faster rate than bad people with guns take lives.
