Let’s take a step back in time to February 14, 2018. A nutcase entered the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and killed seventeen people. The shooter also injured seventeen more.
What you may not remember is that there was a police officer on site during much of the shooting who did not enter the school to confront the shooter until after backup showed up. In other words, the police officer could have prevented numerous deaths and injuries if he had done his job and confronted the shooter.
Fortunately, for some people in Arkansas, though, there was someone who had more guts than the police officer in Parkland, Florida. Penka Arsova writes,
A man in Forth Smith, Arkansas fatally shot a neighbor who opened fire at an apartment complex over the weekend and killed an elderly woman.
The story: Police who responded to the incident, which took place on Saturday, found two bodies when they arrived at the scene. They were identified as 26-year-old Zachary Arnold and 87-year-old Lois Hicks. Arnold reportedly killed Hicks and was then fatally injured by an unnamed neighbor while he was firing his weapon at nearby apartments.
In detail: According to neighbors who witnesses the event, Arnold, who was armed with a rifle, screamed at residents at the apartment complex in an attempt to lure them outside.
“He was yelling and screaming, “You guys get out here, come out here, everyone get out of this building right now,” Janey Peugh, a resident of the apartment complex, told KFSM-TV.
Hicks, who lived in the same building as Arnold, came outside with another elderly woman to try to console the 26-year-old but got scared when they saw that he was armed. He then opened fire and shot the woman.
Fortunately, for everyone else in that apartment building, one of the residents had a rifle. They retrieved it and shot the gunman. End of story.
If that resident hadn’t had a firearm that they were willing to use, you can bet that this situation would have had a much worse ending.
This kind of thing happens more often than anti-gunners want to admit (they never want to admit it). Don’t try to tell me that there is no such thing as a good guy (or woman) with a gun.
Problem is the courts have ruled the cop(s) in Florida had no duty to confront the mass murdering religious terrorist or to save lives! Courts said it wasn’t his “job”! More Dim insanity!
The next thing that idiot bidon is gonna do is out law cars since more people die in cars than by guns
Nah, he’s already robbing drivers blind with higher gas prices from “Big Oil” kickbacks!
Amazing, I didn’t notice any mention of this hero on any of the major news outlets!! I guess it doesn’t meet the narrative of the Left. We need more publicity of these kinds of events.
You must remember the liberal, lame stream media will only print stories which show how an icky ol’ black gun murders huge groups of people! And ALL BY ITS SELF! If anybody actually uses a gun to SOLVE these problems, it becomes a non-occurence, didn’t happen!
Gun registration is illegal according to the gun control act of 1968,title 18,section 926,expressly forbids any registration of fire arms or fire arm owners,or fire arms transactions. Our government are the outlaws. They violate this law at will.
The government has been out of control for a long time and will continue to be so until we the people put a stop to their outlaw mentality. I prefer to do it at the ballot box, but it looks like we may have to resort to our guns to stop this government insanity, I hope it doesn’t come to that.
Yup. Look at Illinois and it’s FOID Card, which has been in place since after the Democrat National Convention, in 1968 in Chicago.
Our first president said the people need to have ample arms and ammunition to stop tyranny even if it’s from our own government. Where are those gun owners? Tyranny is in the white house with an illegitimate president seated there. Use our first and second amendments or lose them.
Well said! That is the exact reason for the second amendment. It had nothing to do with hunting or target shooting, but was for protection against a tyrannical government taking control of the USA and it’s people. We are losing our “god-given, unalienable rights” to people who have made their life’s work to be the constant accumulation and abuse of power. It is long past time for term limits. After all is said, serving in government was supposed to be a privilege and not a career. The worst offenders no longer even make excuses because they have no fear that the laws will be obeyed regardless of the magnitude of their many serious, felonious crimes.
It’s time to clean House (and Senate)
WE NEED TO PULL OUT OUR GUNS AND GO TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY FROM THE TRAITORS THAT STOLE IT BEFORE ITS TO LATE.WE NEED 1 MILLION PATRIOTS TO MARCH ON OUR CAPITOL AND CLEAR OUT MTHE TRAITORS
Got one here, about 50 miles from DC! Let me know when!
In Texas, possession of just about anything is 9/10ths of the law ! If the libs and globalists want your guns, they’ll still have to come and get them !
Let ’em try. There’s a hell of a lot more of us than there is of them.
Lock and load, patriots; the Left is rapidly planting the seeds of revolution or civil war.
And this year seems to be an especially good growing season, with plenty of fertilizer!
