Guns in the news

In the parking lot of a Macey’s grocery store right here in Utah (Orem, to be precise): Man shoots and kills would-be carjacker outside store. A 31-year-old, lawfully armed man with a Concealed Firearm Permit reportedly heard a woman’s screams as she was being pulled from her SUV by another man. He ran to the woman’s aid and the bad guy lunged at him in an attempt to take his weapon. The armed citizen fired once, stopping both attacks. The bad guy was wanted on “several felony warrants”.

The backstory, which the good guy didn’t know, was that the bad guy had already been in two high-speed chases that day, and have already stolen two vehicles that day, and was attempting to steal a third.

Misfire Award(tm)

In Texas, two self-proclaimed ISIS Jihadists (one who had been previously identified by the F.B.I. as a jihadist terrorism suspect) showed up at an art exhibit where cartoons of the Muhammad were on display. The Jihadists were reportedly wearing body armor, carrying rifles, and some reports indicated they had explosives on their persons as well. A lawfully armed man (an off-duty police officer, hired as security for the event) was able to see what was going on, shot both men, killing them. He was injured in the process, but is expected to make a full recovery. Only 16 weeks prior, a similar scenario unfolded outside the Charlie Hedbo offices in France where many were killed by the jihadists. In the United States, where we are heavily armed, only the bad guys were killed, and only one guy was injured. Keep that in mind ISIS!
