Brave Guy, the usher. Too bad the shooter survived.

This story is incorrect.

The usher was not armed. He took out the shooter with his bare hands. During the struggle the shooter's gun went off and the shooter was hit. The usher's Father held the shooters gun on him while the usher went to his car and retrieved his own handgun.

When the usher first attacked the shooter the fighting was so close the shooter could not get a decent shot at the usher. So the shooter started to pistol whip the usher. The usher took quite a beating but kept close fighting to prevent the shooter from getting the angle on him.

The usher held the shooter at gunpoint until the police arrived. He also held the shooter down with his foot.

The shooter was from Sudan but the WAPO story is not clear on it if it is north or south Sudan. The members of the church are of all different races as the area it serves is culturally diverse.

I still can't post links. The story was in the Washington Post.

By the way..... I understand the right wings desire to have a good guy with a gun solve this, but the fact is that didn't happen.

A good guy with a lot of courage and skill took this guy out. He didn't have a gun on him; it was in his car.

Contrary to what you might see on TV most bodyguards don't carry guns. A few unskilled ones do but for the most part bodyguards are pros going up against small time crooks who think a gun gives them a edge.

But against someone with the skill to deal with a shooter a gun is just something that will get the crook shot.

Just like in this case.

California is a largely democratic party State (I am a democrate). So I have to assume if I was to go to the local shooting range most of the People at the range are Democrats or even Illegal Aliens.
I am assuming the same applies in other States that have a majority of the population that are democrats.

Wow. That's pretty good. Mixing up two posts that have nothing to do with each other.

I think you are trying to make the point that I once said Democrats go to shooting ranges. This is news?

If so.... How? Is it new to you that someone besides a full blown gun nut would practice with a gun? Or could you be trying to make the point that Democrats do push responsible gun laws but then they also own guns?

I also push responsible driving laws. I own several cars. I guess you have to be a conservative to understand what you are driving at.

I am not a conservative.

Democrats can’t be full blown gun nuts.

You saw it here first.

Uh.

Second.

Remember the thread about The FBI's Briefing On GOP Baseball Shooting Couldn't Be More Bizarre

1) One of them. The fact that he is an immigrant has nothing to do with it (unless, like you, someone is hunting for immigrants blame for something).

2) What was a mentally ill man doing with guns and ammunition?

‘He was the hero today’: The 22-year-old usher who helped save lives during a Tennessee church shooting | National Post
Quote:
Another church member, a 22-year-old usher named Robert Caleb Engle, tackled the gunman and suffered injuries when he was pistol whipped. In the struggle, the shooter shot himself, although it wasn’t clear if it was on purpose or an accident. Engle retrieved his own gun from his car and held the man until police arrived, police said.

What was he doing here in the first place, Padre?

You said previously we have the best vetting, some 7 levels.

How'd that work out?
