I missed this one when it happened because I haven’t been keeping up with the local news as much as I should.
Remember when we were told it is impossible for someone armed with just a handgun to go up against a shooter armed with an assault rifle, which is why it was fine that Chicken Shit Scot Peterson ran away and we need a new AWB?
Apparently a security guard armed with a handgun stopped a potential mass shooting at a club by someone with an AK.
Also, the security guard is a black woman, and her interview is AMAZING.
She took cover and engaged the potential mass shooter as soon as she saw him.
She had a trauma kit with her and went to retrieve it.
Her only mistake (and I don’t want to sound like an armchair general here) is that she didn’t secure the guy before she went to get the medical supplies so he had a change to escape.
The potential shooter is a convicted felon, recently released from a 14 year prison sentence, so is a prohibited person. He has been arrested but there is no news yet how he managed to obtain his rifle.
Huntsville police are calling this guard a hero.
So we have a felon with an illegally obtained weapon trying to shoot up a club – presumably because a particular rapper was doing a show there – armed with an assault rifle, taken out by a civilian good gal with a gun, who is probably not some crazy white supremacist carrying a gun because of penis size issues.
I guess this is why this hasn’t been touched by any national news network.
