Stephen Willefords heroic actions last Sunday saved many lives at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Willefords quick actions forced Kelley to stop his attack, presumably saving the lives of the twenty wounded and possibly many more.
The press derided President Trump for saying that Willeford saved many lives with his gun, and that stricter gun control regulations would have only made things worse.

NYT Amnesia: Not a Single Instance of Self-Defense With Guns
And they wonder why no one believes them.
The armed citizen is the first responder.
Here are 27 cases:
My nephew was involved in the Trolley Square shooting. He said that after the off duty Ogden officer intervened, there were no civilian casualties. The officer ranput of ammo habit Salt Lake officers finished the perp.
Thanks for the info on the Trolley Square shooting.
Major outbreak of stupidity in the Comments section below the article but there are some really great responses to the usual crapola on “reasonable” and “common sense” gun laws.
“I haven’t found a single case where gun control advocates’ fears were borne out by the facts. In not one of these cases did a permit holder accidentally shoot a bystander, or a police officer accidentally harm a permit holder.”
There was one in Israel at Gush Etzion Junction. An Arab attacked my son’s teacher’s brother with a knife. He shot his attacker dead, and a soldier at the scene mistook him for a terrorist and shot him dead before the soldier was able to ascertain the facts. That’s just an exception that proves the rule, though.
Updated every week, at least three instances per week, going on now for decades.
So glad there was a good guy with a gun in Texas.
I think gun control advocates don’t understand that in rural areas, when seconds count, help is not minutes away. Sometimes it’s an hour away.
