Sometimes mass shootings are stopped by people with guns, but usually the police, not civilians. You've not linked anything that suggests mass shootings are stopped by civilians with guns very often.
And stopping people who have gone on mass shootings is kind of shutting the door after the horse has bolted anyway, which really doesn't suggest it's a good method of stopping or preventing mass shootings.

This article claims:
Mass shooters died in 48 percent of the attacks studied, 38 percent by their own hand and the remaining by "suicide by cop"--using weapons to intentionally provoke police, who are trained to shoot and kill in life-threatening situations.
No mention of civilians, which means either they couldn't find any or they just were not large enough in number to influence statistics.
So now it's your turn: can you supply any statistics on how many mass shootings are stopped and/or prevented by the civilian population with guns?
