These stories never get reported
Signs on that Oregon mall said that weapons were not allowed on the premises. The police did not stop the shooter as reported. Who stopped the shooting was Nick Meli, a 22-year-old with a concealed weapon, which he had a permit to carry. Anti-gun folks can Google it. These stories never get reported.
Editor's note: The Clackamas Town Center shooter took his own life at the scene. Nick Meli did not shoot because, he said, he was afraid of hitting a bystander. He took cover in a nearby store.
