It isn't the shooter we should be worried about training. It's the bystanders. People with guns prevent shootings all the time, both private citizens and professionals. The more people out there with the tools and training to stop violence in progress, the better.

When half the people in any crowd are potential security guards, shooters who aren't suicidal are much more wary of shooting in the first place. And the victims and survivors won't have to wait thirty minutes to an hour for help to show up, and hope it's not one of those cowardly police who will wait outside until the threat neutralizes itself.
