Editor’s Note: Because you guys won’t stop sending me the link to this article from A YEAR AGO, I bumped up the post I wrote A YEAR AGO.
Salt Lake City’s ABC4 tells the story of gun carrying man who put a stop to a nut with a knife randomly stabbing people outside a store where he had purchased the knife;
Then, before the suspect could find another victim – a citizen with a gun stopped the madness. “A guy pulled gun on him and told him to drop his weapon or he would shoot him. So, he dropped his weapon and the people from Smith’s grabbed him.”
By the time officers arrived the suspect had been subdued by employees and shoppers. Police had high praise for gun carrying man who ended the hysteria. Lt. Brian Purvis said, “This was a volatile situation that could have gotten worse. We can only assume from what we saw it could have gotten worse. He was definitely in the right place at the right time.”
Dozens of other shoppers, who too could have become victims, are also thankful for the gun carrying man.
Isn’t it comforting to know that in a world gone mad, there are still sane people who see it as part of their civic duty to be armed.
