Another example of good guys with guns stopping an active shooter.

Killed the cretin.

But guns don't save lives, right?

Kudos to these guys!

Juan Carlos Nazario was sitting on a lakeside bench waiting to play soccer when he heard the staccato popping of gunshots outside Louie’s On the Lake, a popular waterfront grill and pub. He ran to his car to get his gun and moved toward the sounds.

Bryan Whittle was driving with his wife, heading off for a Memorial Day weekend getaway, when he saw a commotion outside Louie’s. He thought someone might be drowning, so instead of turning his truck onto the highway, he barreled into the parking lot to offer help. As he jumped out, what he learned stunned him: There was an active shooter just yards away, and wounded victims were holed up in the restaurant’s bathroom.


Whittle, too, grabbed his gun.

In a matter of seconds, the two armed citizens became self-appointed protectors, moving to take up positions around the shooter, drawing their weapons and shouting for him to drop his. Time stretched and warped. There was an exchange of gunfire. The gunman was hit several times and fell. As Nazario and Whittle converged over the man to restrain him, police arrived. Unsure who was who, officers handcuffed all of the men and put them on the ground as the shooter bled out into the grass and died.

My experience is very old and did not make any news outlets but a bar in San Mateo was being robbed and I wondered in and caught the guy and took his hand gun. So big deal! Only chickenshits make a big deal about blowing someone away to end a fire arm dispute.

No one is advocating firearms for home defense or protection of life should be banned.

What people want to curb is fuckwads with military style assault weapons going into a school, a church, a restaurant, a night club or a concert and shooting up masses of people.

Not one of the advocate groups that were formed after Las Vegas, Sutherland Springs, Santa Fe, Parkland, or Orlando called on home protection to end.

What is some moron with a AR-15 going into a school..defending? The 2nd amendment?

Those are gun free zones, no firearms there, by law, but only for good guys.
