Man Attempts to Open Fire on Crowd at Movie Theater, Armed Off-Duty Sheriffs Deputy Drops Him With One Bullet
December 17, 2012
With one shot, an off-duty sheriffs deputy took down a gunman who attempted to opened fire at a crowded movie theater lobby during a late night showing of The Hobbit in San Antonio, WOAI reports.
Gee, cops aren’t so bad after all.
Well, that makes one in a row.
Well, off-duty cops anyway.
I’m sure this story will hit the MSM tomorrow, spread like wild fire, educate the masses, show what can and does happen when citizens are armed.......
Hehehe. . . you make me laugh.
Go ahead, Snoopy. Make my day.
it use to be....*smiles*
I guess he didn't want to risk only being wounded and getting sent to prison.
... and ‘he’ is a ‘she.’ Lisa Castellano.
yeah ,I saw that
And according to other news reports, she shot the guy 4 times. Hooray for Texas!
That’s murder. You have to wait until they shoot everybody, get permission from the PC MSM and the bleeding heart public, travel back in time to before the incident, and then shoot them.
You’ll never catch me in a movie theater without my gun, that’s for sure.
Really? You mean like at the Killeen Lubys Cafeteria, the clock tower at the University of Texas at Austin, the Soldier Readiness Processing Center at Fort Hood, and at Fort Worths Wedgewood Baptist Church? I’d say you’re all hat and no cattle, son...
I was about to say you'll never catch me in a movie theater then I remembered the wife and I saw 2016 a few months ago. Prior to that the last time I had been in a theater was to see Twister in I believe 1996. I don't support Hollyweird or the liberal filth who work there.
30 demerits for failing to post the required /s/ sarcasm warning.
But all the liberals say that a man with a gun can’t stop a man with a gun. I’ve heard it over and over and over...
I guess the liberals were right. The man with a gun wasn't stopped by a man with a gun. lol
Don't forget to check with the U.N. and the International courts in Brussels.
I get into a theater maybe once every couple of years. I have a buddy who insists we see certain movies on “the big screen”.
Liberals are stupid. Females and children have stopped bad men with guns.
Irrelevant in terms of gun rights.....because it
was a LEO....someone who has been sprinkled with
the magic fairy dust of government approval.
Obviously. On both counts.
Bexar County sheriff's Sgt. Lisa Castellano, who was working off-duty as a security guard at the Mayan Palace, chased the gunman toward the back of the theater. The 13-year department veteran cornered him after he ran into a men's restroom, shooting him several times and taking his gun, Pollard said.
Armando Olguin, an off-duty San Antonio Independent School District police officer, restrained him using the sergeant's handcuffs, Pollard said. Read more: http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/article/Breakup-sparked-theater-shootout-4123414.php#ixzz2FOD5x7dU
It was a gal that stopped that church shooting in Colorado Springs several years ago. She was a former cop, and a member of the church and volunteered as security. IIRC she ran past a uniformed rent-a-cop as she headed towards the sound of gunfire. She severely wounded the shooter, who then committed suicide.
But But..media keeps on saying guns are bad..yet a gun stopped what could have been a horrible tragedy..gee media..ya think maybe, just maybe..guns actually SAVE lives
Bottom line is killers are cowards..the second they see someone else armed they either run like sissies or kill themselves. The reason why the shooter in Oregon killed himself is because he freaked out when he saw someone armed. That is why these “gun free zones” are absolute JOKES..they dont deter crime, in fact, it makes nut cases swarm to them because they know that no one there will be armed to stop them
Liberals with a gun shoot themselves after they soil themselves so liberals with a gun CAN’T stop a man with a gun.
Police did not release the name of the security guard but said she "probably saved many lives today."
"It's a tragedy that could have been much worse than it was," the police chief admitted.
The gunman was described as a white man in his late teens to early 20s. His name has not been released. However, Arvada police said late Sunday that this shooting may be linked to a shooting at a missionary center in Arvada. The gunman in that shooting was described as a white man in his 20s. (Read that story )
I'm surprised the libs haven't demanded young male control.
Gun control in Texas.....hit what you are aiming at.
HOORAY Lisa Castellano! Life/thread BUMP!
Officer: “Why did you shoot this man 6 times as he broke into your home?”
Home Owner: “’Cause the seventh time I pulled the trigger it went click.”
All true, but I have also read that these incidents usually end in suicide because the gunman wants to retain control and taking his own life achieves that objective.
But she ran in to the men’s room after him......Isn’t that a crime? ;-)
Other than that, how was the movie?
Bob Costas: I wouldnt want to have a gun during a theater shooting
I'm glad that you posted that. That's the way I feel, too.
excellent bumper sticker
Listen to John Lott’s interview on Mark Levin show
Most of these incidents are suicides, staged to get maximum publicity. Sometimes the coward changes his mind at the last minute
BTW according to Lott’s research, most of these mass shootings take place where the shooter has planned and chosed a site where the victims are unarmed and unable to fight back. The Aurora theater shooter bypassed several theaters close to his apartment, to choose one where
“NO FIREARMS” signs were posted
Cafeteria and clock tower pre-concealed carry. One a military base where their rules apply. the church, before they lifted its gun free zone status. Its these events which led us to today.....
BTW I was on campus for the clock tower shooting, a deputy shot him too!
Thanks for starting my day with a smile.
But she ran in to the mens room after him......Isnt that a crime? ;-)
She will be charged with a ADA crime since the shooter was helpless and could not defend himself. She is sure to be convicted and sent to prison for this.
We all know how helpless you are on the pot and she knew it too. She should have waited until he was through and properly wiped before she shot him.
I'd be more afraid of some nut setting fire to the place.
The paleo-media files this under: Huh? What? Nothing to see here. Move along. Move along.
