So, we are told by the Cult of Gun Control that a citizen with a pistol could never ever stop a would be mass killer with an “assault weapon”. Tom Knighton at Bearing Arms has a story that proves that narrative is false
It’s long been argued that the solution to preventing mass shootings is the presence of more guns. There’s a reason people like me want armed teachers in our schools, for example.
However, others think having more guns means having more problems.
Tell that to all the people who weren’t shot at Club 3208 in Huntsville, Alabama just before the new year.
The private security officer called a hero by Huntsville Police shared her story after she stopped a man from entering a Huntsville nightclub with an AK-47.
The security officer shot Samuel Williams who is facing multiple charges including possession of a firearm by a felon.
Private security officer, Latoya, said she was working at Club 3208 early Monday morning when a fight happened inside. Williams had to be removed from the club. Latoya explained when Williams was removed from the nightclub he went to a car in the parking lot and retrieved an AK-47 and started shooting.
“Outside we did our job as security and made sure that everyone was back, and there was no one outside but the person and security,” she explained.
Latoya said she was the only armed security guard at the club and knew she had to take action.
“He started to make moves towards the door he still was firing off shots. I decided that I had to make a choice–to go ahead and stop him from entering the club. I was behind a vehicle right here at this first handicap parking spot and basically just maneuvered around the vehicle as he maneuvered around the other side of it to make sure I was properly concealed and covered,” she added.
This story, of course, will receive no national coverage, and even if it receives a mention, it will not be the same coverage as it would have if the guard had not acted. An armed guard, with “just” a pistol brought down a shooter armed with an “assault rifle”. The left insists this could never happen. Of course they will now say the guard was highly trained. But many who carry concealed weapons undergo training don’t they?
