U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- In Garland, Texas, on 3 May 2015, Gregory Stevens, a veteran police officer with the Garland Police Department, was working off duty as armed security for the “Draw the Prophet” cartoon contest event.
Pamela Geller organized the Draw the Prophet event as a response to Islamic demands that Western Civilization submits to Islamic censorship.
The particular demand was no one would be allowed to draw images of the Prophet Mohammed or to mock him or make fun of him.
The infamous attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris had occurred just five months earlier, by two Islamists with AK-47 type rifles and Tokarev pistols.
Many will remember the Draw Mohammed event, in the Dallas suburb of Garland, which was attacked by two Isis recruits.
Few know the details of how one prepared gunfighter police officer faced two Islamic riflemen armed with semi-automatic rifles, handguns, plenty of ammunition, soft body armor, and the element of surprise. He fought them at close range and prevailed.
Gregory Stevens was that officer. For his own safety and security, and, possibly, to shield the FBI from exposure, the details of the attack and his defensive actions were hidden for more than a year.
Officer Stevens was working extra hours as armed, uniformed security for the event. He would turn 60 in a few days. He had a long experience as a traffic officer. He was a gun guy, who preferred a 1911 .45 Auto.
As a concession to modern pistol design, he had been issued a Glock model 21, chambered in .45 Auto. He was carrying his Glock in his standard duty rig, with a 13 round magazine, a round chambered, and two spare magazines, for a total of 40 rounds of Speer Gold Dot 230 grain hollowpoints. . ."

It would appear that FBI involvement in this particular terror attack is beyond question and NOT just a conspiracy theory.
This was 2015, on Obama’s watch.
After having read the article completely, it is difficult to come to any different conclusion.
“attempted to flee” and being shielded from consequences of his actions.
Yup, complete mystery how anyone could lose respect for any LE, and the FBI in particular.
I have great admiration and respect for Officer Stevens, but I still would not have released his name to the public, or used it now, serving to revive attention to his role.
I still don’t get what that FBI man was doing there.
If he was setting these guys up to act like the ISIS they were, fine, so why not let our side know who you are?
Gregory Stevens is a genuine hero.
He shoulda dropped the FIB agent too.
Just me, but I been suggesting that this whole fiasco smelled like a red flag op to me. Dunno tho, just gut for now.
It May have been a false flag. I just want to know, who is Ray Epps working for?
What exactly IS a gunfighter police officer? Are there 10 different definitions? Strange set of words to use.
It used to be marksman, sharpshooter and then expert. I guess they added “gunfighter”.
Or - maybe one gets that badge upon killing a bad guy in a gun fight.
Or maybe the media just want to badmouth all gun owners, and call us all gunfighters.
You have to spin the pistol on your finger by the trigger guard before holstering the the weapon to get the gunfighter badge.
Gee, wonder why this obvious false flag op wasn’t reported on, by the msm?/quadruple sarc
The fbi AGENT was there, to film a massacre.
How did the 18-year-old murderer at the Uvalde school get the $9,000 to buy the weapons he used to kill all of those children and teachers?
Nobody is answering this critical question.
Dean posts here regularly, like every time he publishes a new column. His username is marktwain. Get on his ping list, worthwhile for sure
Soofi had bought his gun in 2010 during the Fast n Furious fiasco
First of all it’s not $9,000, more like $4,500-5,000 and I am being generous.
The FBI I can understand but the LE was a hero
