Guns needed in Greenwood, IN mall

And it was a PRIVATE CITIZEN with his own gun, not the police that took out the bad guy. Proof that the 2nd Amendment & Concealed Carry do work as intended.

Such a rare event.
All too often the private citizen who draws their gun is shot either by the assailant or the police (who mistake the private citizen as another assailant).

Yep. And Hoping It Continues So.

SUPERShot


The big difference seems to be training... it would be nice if there was a training requirement for owning firearms esp. concealed, but that just seems to get everyone's dander up, and then they wonder why there are unnecessary shootings or terrible mistakes. The police and military require training for a reason.

We expect drivers to be licensed and trained proportionally to the size, complexity and danger of their vehicle to prevent injuries and death to others, so why not the same for firearms?

As bullets continue to fly.

At least one injured in shooting near Dupont in DC.

And an AR-15 style assault weapon and body armour didn't help this moronic loser.

Standoff ends after armed man allegedly tried to break into FBI office.

The FBI still got their man.

As expected he was just another far right loser.

Judge rules 'ghost guns' are firearms and bars Polymer80 from selling them to D.C. residents.

Ghost gun kits and parts are in fact firearms, a court said in a landmark judgment, barring one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of the homemade and untraceable weapons from selling its do-it-yourself products to residents in Washington, D.C.

Polymer80, a Nevada-based ghost gun manufacturer and distributor, has to pay more than $4 million in penalties for making false claims about the legality of its products, a judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia ruled Wednesday.

Gun-safety advocates said the ruling was crucial to stem the flow of ghost guns, which are increasingly favored among criminals nationwide because the kits are bought without a background check and can be put together in under two hours.

It is significant even outside the U.S. capital, they said, amid a handful of other lawsuits against ghost gun companies and ahead of new federal regulations that go into effect soon...

...Polymer80 also has to "prominently notify" its website visitors that those products are illegal to sell and own in the district and relay that message to all of its past, present and future dealers and distributors...

This is not an incident in the U.S.
But could be in the future if the firearm nuts were to get their wishes, and as usual fail to keep their weapons safe.
