BUT, I think just making the law could be somewhat of a deterrent in itself. If the active shooters know that concealed weapons are possible and probable, it will make some of them think twice.
But why would it be a deterrent? Most shooters don't plan to survive the shooting. Some of them even kill themselves. That the Parkland shooter fled and was taken alive is extremely rare. Sandy Hook, Columbine, Vegas, Orlando - these shooters all died.

So even if you manage to fire back, they will still kill people and still achieve their goal. Because their goal was not to survive, but to kill.

Take away the damn guns.
