The FBI Hasn’t Provided an Accurate Count of Armed Citizens That Have Thwarted Active Shooters – But Why?

InVest USA’s Michael Letts speaks on the latest supposed actions by the troubled agency.

Many people have been calling for concealed-carry to be passed nationwide as a potential solution to the many active shooter events that have taken place this year. However, the government seems stagnant on that solution without real numbers – but there may be a reason why those haven’t been provided.

A new report from the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC), according to Fox News, indicates that the bureau’s data has several “massive errors” when it comes to keeping track of active shooter events. As a result, it has not been able to properly tally how many have been stopped by armed citizens working under concealed-carry rules.

The report notes, “Although collecting such data is fraught with challenges, some see a pattern of distortion in the FBI numbers because the errors almost exclusively go one way, minimizing the life-saving actions of armed citizens.”

Based on the report, 34.4 percent of active shootings were stopped by armed citizens. However, the FBI data indicates that only accounts for 4.4 percent of them – a number that’s way off.

Here to speak about this potential miscalculation is Michael Letts, who has spent over 30 years in law enforcement. He currently serves as president, founder and CEO for InVest USA, an organization that provides bulletproof vests to police officers through various charitable groups and sponsorships. His expertise will prove worthwhile in this matter.


  1. This information about the FBI possibly miscalculating numbers for active shooters being stopped by concealed-carry citizens seems to be the latest error by the bureau. What do you make of this report, if it turns out to be true?
  2. This comes on the heels of several former FBI agents turning whistleblowers, indicating a lack of confidence in the bureau and their forced direction towards a certain kind of justice. Does this report reflect their comments about the bureau, you think?
  3. You’ve been speaking about the FBI’s erroneous ways for some time now, starting way back with the group’s invasion of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. What do you believe is the bureau’s biggest problem?
  4. Why do you think the FBI is trying to keep quiet on reporting on armed citizens stopping active shooters? Are they trying to dwindle down the effects of granting concealed-carry to these citizens? Or is it something else?
  5. What do you think can be done to turn around the FBI’s efforts? Is it time for a new director, or possibly an overhaul of the entire agency?
  6. Tell us more about InVest USA, and how it’s helping police officers, especially in their time of need.
  7. Where can we learn more about In-Vest USA, and how people can contribute to the group?
