Concealed carrier in Salt Lake City ends stabber’s spree

Written By: Bob - Jul• 27•12

The Joyce Foundation, Brady bunch, Violence Policy Center, and other radical leftists the President adores constantly tell us guns in the hands of civilians don’t stop spree killers.

About that:

Police say the suspect purchased a knife inside the store and then turned it into a weapon. Smith’s employee Dorothy Espinoza says, “He pulled it out and stood outside the Smiths in the foyer. And just started stabbing people and yelling you killed my people. You killed my people.”

Espinoza says, the knife wielding man seriously injured two people. “There is blood all over. One got stabbed in the stomach and got stabbed in the head and held his hands and got stabbed all over the arms.”

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.”

You’ll note that the police officers in this incident were thankful that someone with a concealed carry permit was able to stop the carnage before it got worse. Most police are in favor of lawful citizens carrying concealed weapons, it is typically only the Democrat-aligned police brass in “blue” cities that are against it.

    and in other news…some of your favorite useless democrat fuckwits in the senate have added a rider to the so called Cyber Security Act, that would ban hi capacity magazines. Basically any magazine that holds more than 10 rounds. Oh and for every ammunition type but the .22 Let no tragedy go to waste, don’t you know?

    CCW advocates should take a leaf from President Obama’s “saved or created” play book and estimate the numbers so they look good for us.

    This incident didn’t stop a single killing, it stopped thousands of killings, there, and copycats who might otherwise have been encouraged to act.

    This guy’s a HERO!
