Default 2, GOOD GUYS with a GUN, stop a BAD GUY with a gun...



In a matter of seconds, the two armed citizens became self-appointed protectors, moving to take up positions around the shooter, drawing their weapons and shouting for him to drop his. Time stretched and warped. There was an exchange of gunfire. The gunman was hit several times and fell. As Nazario and Whittle converged over the man to restrain him, police arrived. Unsure who was who, officers handcuffed all of the men and put them on the ground as the shooter bled out into the grass and died.

I was just doing what I was supposed to do, recalled Nazario, a former police officer who said he now works as a security guard, always has his gun in the car and usually carries it with him.


I just reacted, said Whittle, who has served for nearly 20 years in the Oklahoma Air National Guard and works for the Federal Aviation Administration. Theres a guy with a gun. Ive got a gun. Stop the threat.

Seemed an odd story for WaPo. Sure enough, get into it and it's all about the potential for mistaken identity.

Yep. They desperately want a "two good guys with guns shoot each other" story.

Just imagine how many lives could be saved if there were armed citizens at some of the mass shootings that took place in recent years. Yet the dems want to disarm responsible gun owners, thankfully we have a president with ***** and a backbone to stand up to all the bullshit. MAGA!

Amazing how 2 strangers who don't know each other both know immediately who the bad actor is and the police can't.
