Question for my Loyal Readers

And disloyal ones come to that.
.
How many Mass Shooters have held concealed weapon's licence?

If you can think of any, leave the name in the comments below


UPDATE:

Okay, my idea for an article is now scrapped.

The Violence Policy Center has documented 29 mass shootings of three or more people since 2007 where the perpetrator was himself a concealed carry permit holder.
The definition of Mass Shooter is officially pointless as they are including any discharge of a firearm, probably including legitimate self-defense if the number of shootees is as low as three.

Clearly these numbers have already been so tortured they have confess to everything.

Didn't the Fort Hood guy have a permit? I may be wrong there, though.

29, according to the WaPo, quoting the antigun site VPC:

Nice rebuttal from Breitbart:
WaPo: Gun Lobby Doesn’t Mention .0002266% of Concealed Permit Holders Accused of ‘Mass Shootings’
