Mass shooter at shopping mall taken down by "Good Samaritan.

GREENWOOD, Ind., July 18 (Reuters) - The gunman who killed three people at a shopping mall near Indianapolis over the weekend before an armed bystander shot him dead was a 20-year-old local who had a juvenile record but no criminal history as an adult, the police chief said on Monday.

The "Good Samaritan" - who was lawfully carrying a firearm while at the shopping center with his girlfriend - stopped the gunman almost as soon the suspect opened fire on Sunday in the food court of a mall in Greenwood, Indiana, outside of Indianapolis, local officials said.

The gunman had two rifles and a handgun in his possession with several magazines of ammunition and over 100 rounds of bullets.

You too can place yourself in harms way and take out the nutter that we allowed to purchase a gun sold by the people we defend and promote because um well Wayne needs another mansion......a gun thats only application is killing people.
My thoughts and Prayers for a truly fucked up country.

Tangential: Keep it in mind when you hear some knucklehead go on about being "out gunned".

Jeff is unclear on what moving the goalposts means vs pointing out the obvious. I did post in another thread about the off duty Houston cop who stopped what was an intended mass shooting at the Galleria in Houston. Hardly made the news since he tackled the perp and nobody died. The perp got a 6 month sentence and then an additional 12 months for attempting to bring a handgun to court. His target was 200 girls in a dance contest. Why the short sentences? Because that is the max he could be charged with. In Texas.

You're failing at statistics.

It sounds like you're on board, then, with one of my key "reasonable gun law proposals". I've been saying for years now that one of the key foundations to fix is the broken "justice" system and our poor to non-existent enforcement of existing gun laws. Your perp should be have gotten life in prison for attempting mass murder.

America needs a law authorizing citizens to sue those who break firearm safety and use laws. Let criminals bear some of the societal costs of negligent gun ownership.

If Texans can sue the parents of a 12 year old rape victim who receives an abortion, why can't they sue the parents of a 5 year old who shoots himself with an unsecured gun?

If only the good guy with the gun prevented actual deaths instead of imagined ones....
You don't think the armed citizen prevented any additional murders? Seriously? So with two rifles, a hand gun and hundreds of rounds of ammo - the gunman was about to stop and surrender when the good samaritan shot him out of nowhere????

See..... it is ludicrous BULLSHIT like this ^^ is why there can be no reasonable, adult conversations about actually finding ways to stop this sort of violence. Thank you ETS, you and your idiotic thinking can go fuck back off to your prison colony.
