The premise of the gun control movement is that private ownership of guns can only be used for evil and that the only way to stop violence is to ban people from owning guns. Never mind the fact that this Bloombergian nonsense doesn’t work and has never actually worked. Criminals will always get their hands on guns. Gun control just stops law-abiding citizens from defending themselves and others. In the face of that, the gun control lobby insists that no such thing ever happens.
People can never defend themselves with guns and the only reasonable thing to do is call the police and hope you don’t die until then, ala Uvalde.
Of course, it doesn’t have to be this way.
A lone man with a long gun killed three people before an armed bystander killed him in the Greenwood Park Mall food court Sunday evening, according to Greenwood Police Chief Jim Ison. Two people were injured.
“It appears that he had a rifle with several magazines of ammunition, entered the food court and began shooting,” Ison said.
The “good Samaritan” who shot the man with the rifle was a 22-year-old man from Bartholomew County, Indiana, Ison said.
“The real hero of the day is the citizen that was lawfully carrying a firearm in that food court and was able to stop the shooter almost as soon as he began,” he said.
One of the wounded was a 12-year-old girl with a minor injury.
The other victims ranged in age from early 20s to 30, and all but one were female.
The FBI, ATF, Department of Homeland Security and Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department are assisting in the investigation.
And now, fortunately, no one needs them because a man on the scene with a gun saved who knows how many lives.
