There’s been a lot of talk lately about “good guys with guns,” after a young man who was “Constitutionally carrying” in Indiana, killed an active shooter at the mall, in a remarkable 15 seconds.
Of course, the media and the left are not talking about this hero, because they prefer it when mass shooters succeed so they can politicize deaths and push gun control.
But the fact of the matter is that law-abiding Americans who are armed are our greatest hope against the bad guys out there.
And the young guy in Indiana isn’t the only “good guy” who saved the day.
Another armed American saved the day at a Missouri gas station when he neutralized an armed robber.
Western Journal reported that a customer with a concealed firearm witnessed the robber’s actions at the QuikTrip store.
According to KTVI, the customer told police he had stopped in at the store to use the restroom and make a purchase. As he was returning to to his vehicle in the parking lot, he saw a black SUV pull up directly in front of the store’s door, without using a parking space.
He said he saw the driver of the SUV enter the store carrying a backpack, then accost the clerk, dragging her from the coffee pot area to the store’s front counter, according to KTVI. The woman was screaming, he said.
The customer’s intereview with KDSK is below. The customer is not identified because, he told the station, he fears retaliation for his actions:
“I walked up to the door and I saw him with a knife to her throat. She was emptying out the cash register and I took a step in and peeked my head in to ask if everything was OK,” he told KDSK.
“I couldn’t see his face but he was saying, ‘yes,’ but I could see her face she was saying, ‘no,’ she was scared,” the customer said.
“I pulled my gun up and I asked him, ‘are you sure everything’s OK?’ And that’s when the suspect said, ‘no, it’s not OK, but I got something for you,’ and he grabbed his bag, ran from around the counter and started running towards me and that’s when I fired shots.”
When police arrived at the scene, they found the wounded man, according to reporting from KMOV-TV. Bush was taken to a hospital, where he would later die of his wounds.
The customer who shot him was still at the scene when police arrived, KSDK-TV reported.
Thank God for these good folks with guns, we need more of them, not less.
I know I’d much rather be in a store with armed, law-abiding Americans than in some Dem gun-free zone, where I’m a sitting duck.
