Mass Shooting Thwarted in Arizona by Concealed Carrier – Think the Socialist Gun Grabbers will mention This?

While people like Piers Morgan, Barack Obama and Dianne Feinstein continue to push fear-mongering over guns, a recent story makes the point that guns are not evil, but rather a good deterrent to evil. This couldn't be more apparent than at a recent party that took place in Arizona, where a citizen who was carrying his weapon probably saved everyone at the party from a gunman with a rifle.

10-things-not-to-do-when-carrying-concealedA 27-year-old man got into an argument at with some party goers. After a time, the man was asked to leave, and he did.

A short while later he returned. Armed with a rifle, he began firing off shots outside the home.

What happened next is reported by AZ Central:

The man pointed the rifle at partygoers and a 39-year-old partygoer pulled out a handgun and shot the 27 year old before police arrived, Glendale Police Department spokeswoman Officer Tracey Breeden said. The shooter did not try to leave and waited for officers to arrive.

The shooter has been cooperative with investigators, she said. He was questioned and released by detectives.

"This is standard procedure under these type of circumstances," Breeden said. "Information and evidence detectives have gathered leads them to believe the 27-year-old was not only firing his rifle, endangering partygoers, but also pointed the weapon at other partygoers, endangering them, prior to the 39-year-old displaying a weapon and shooting the 27-year-old."

The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending, Breeden said.

It almost makes me want to ask each party goer that was there, the same question that INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble asked and that is would you rather live in an area that has gun prohibition or one that allows law abiding citizens to carry their weapons lawfully?

Now consider that nothing states that alcohol was involved, but story also indicates the party took place at a private residence.

I mention this because in many states concealed carry permit holders are not allowed to carry their weapons in restaurants that serve alcohol and bars, not because the owners have a problem with it, but because the state does.

When my wife and I completed our concealed carry course, I asked why firearms were not allowed in such places. The response was, "Alcohol and guns don't mix."

Now I presume alcohol was at this party, but I could be wrong. However, whether or not it was there or not is part of the point. Here was a young man that didn't care what the law was and came armed with a rifle to the party after being told to leave.

Fortunately, the 39-year-old had enough sense to maintain his right to keep and bear arms and was able to stop the 27-year-old.

The same could be said of bars and restaurants. The issue is not a mixture of alcohol and firearms; it really isn't. The issue is someone that respects the use of a firearms and has a moral compass on when to use it. Obviously the 27-year-old criminal in this case didn't have either. I say, "Well done" to the gentleman that stopped him!

    Conceald is concealed, what they won't know won't hurt them...

    Gun controllers have no moral compass about right, wrong, alcohol use or drugs. It's about control, not about whether or not anything else is a factor in the owning, carry or use of firearms. The shooter that took down the perp would have been unarmed if he had followed "their" rules....and many more would have been hurt. Personable responsibility and the strong usage thereof is the question here....not any idiot's set of stupid rules.

    I wonder what the Emperial President thinks of this?

    " Socialist....libtards" ?... hmm..? Though no Red Stater", I wholeheartedly support ALL the Bill of Rights. The 2nd Amendment is essential for the protection of all our Liberties. Obama and Feinstein are DemPublicanCFRer's, who have recently made their contempt for the Bill of Rights quite obvious. The atrocities at Waco and Ruby Ridge are Clinton's monuments to the domestic abuse of government power. The limited press coverage is no surprise. The intruder is lucky he's alive.

    Proud of the paratrooper! He deserves a medal.

    If/when questioned, your reply should ONLY be "I was in fear for my life and I want to talk to a lawyer"
    Sadly, too much of an explaination can be twisted by authorities to go against you.
    "I was in fear for my life and I want to talk to a lawyer"
    The 39 year old was ABSOLUTELY in the right.

  • Smokey

    The left will never admit they are wrong. Well done sir!

  • catman

    The article says "charges may be pending". I wonder to whom those charges may be directed. Hopefully not to the CCW holder. Sounds like a clear case of self defense and the defense of others to me.

    The gentleman who shot the fool is very fortunate the incident took place in Arizona, and not some place like CA, IL, MA or NY, which always see fit to punish the good guy and let the offender off with a slap on the wrist.

    • HonorandDuty

      And don't forget, allow the bad guy (or his family if dead) to sue for pain, suffering and whatever else they see fit and WIN!

    • Tonto

      That would not happen in most Red states, at least I hope so, since they seem to have more reasonable people.

  • CQQL33

    God bless the guy that was Carrying and I hope he can handle the aftermath. I am sure he has lost some sleep over what has happened as anybody that has a heart would. I only hope the law stands up with him.

    With this not being a sensational mass shooting, they will not show it. Everybody knows that it must be sensational and emotional and there must be mass casualties, the police must be involved before it can be used for the peupose of Gun Control (People Control), just one law abiding citizen preventing something from turning sensational is not NEWS!

  • BennettMike

    When done right it's a beautiful thing.

  • Tonto

    Amen. This story should be faxed to Ms. Feinstein about 1,000 times.
    One of her flying monkeys might read it.

    • Patriot

      Probably should not tell Feinstein or any libtards about it. They'll find a reason to arrest the hero and put him in jail.

      she is too busy covering up the committee she was on that her husband was getting contracts out of: Arguing with a democrat is a waste of air. They cannot hear it!

  • notalib

    To the CC shooter--very well done! I haven't seen this article anywhere else.

    • kent
