No, if the situation posed a risk to myself or my loved ones, I would absolutely interfere. What I wouldn't do is abandon my loved ones and run towards gunfire. That's just me though - I've had this conversation with plenty of people who would not only rise to the occasion but would go to their cars, grab rifles, and rush back in to stop the threat.But you said it yourself - you wouldn't actually interfere in a situation if it posed significant risk for your own life or the lives of your loved ones.
Like I said, it's a rare occurrence because mass shootings happen in gun free zones. No one is stupid enough to charge a guy with a rifle on a hope and prayer; however, if they have their own gun they might.Most people would behave like that, even in a non-gun-free zone. I have no problem with the claim that guns are for self-defense. But the selfless hero with a gun sacrificing his life for others is a very rare occurrence.
