Anti-gunners love to pretend that law-abiding gun owners are a threat to humanity. They dismiss any claims of self-defense as “cowboy daydreams” or “wannabe Ramboism.” It’s not something they see as a real thing.
Meanwhile, a law-abiding gun owner put down a shooter at a Wal-Mart in Washington state.
An armed civilian took down a shooter after at least two people were shot Sunday night at a Washington state Walmart, police said.
Tumwater police said the civilian, described by officers as a good Samaritan, shot and killed the suspect at the scene.
On Monday night, KIRO 7 confirmed the civilian is a pastor and works with the Oakville Fire Department, where he is a lieutenant and an emergency medical technician.
The shooting happened just after 5:30 p.m. at the Walmart Supercenter in Tumwater, about 65 miles south of Seattle.
“I heard two bangs. It sounded like gunshots to me,” witness Robert Berwick said. “I looked down the aisle and saw a person running.”
That’s when Berwick ran, too. There was chaos in the parking lot, and he said the shooting suspect tried to carjack another man. That’s when the suspect was shot.
In other words, the good guy put the bad guy down. But if he hadn’t, it appears there were plenty of others willing to step in.
Another witness to the shooting, Megan Chadwick, said her husband saw the civilian take down the shooter.
“He said he watched him (the shooter) take his last breath,” Chadwick said. “There were three civilians going after him (the shooter) to shoot him and two of them had their guns up — and then the third guy shot him through the window of the car.”
So, tell me again how an armed citizenry is a bad thing?
