Off Duty Southern Sheriff Stops Mass Murder Attempt

In Southern states, many folks are legally armed by concealed carry permit. This time an off duty Sheriff's deputy stopped a potentially horrific mass murder BECAUSE HE WAS ARMED. No one up north in states like Connecticunt are armed except for on duty police. Gun laws you know. So the evil yankee boy up north tried the same thing at a school in the South, he likely would have been stopped by a concealed carry teacher or school employee.

GUNS, IN THE HANDS OFF LAW ABIDING CITIZENS, STOP SENSELESS VIOLENCE.

With one shot, an off-duty sheriff’s 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.

Police say a gunman, identified as Jesus Manuel Garcia, chased patrons from the nearby China Garden Restaurant into the lobby of the Santikos Mayan 14 movie theater at around 9 p.m. on Sunday. Garcia, an employee of the restaurant, reportedly walked in the establishment looking for a woman.

When the woman, also reportedly a restaurant employee, wasn’t there, Garcia pulled out a gun and attempted to open fire in the restaurant but his weapon jammed.

“It started at the restaurant and then went into the parking lot and then into the movie theater,” Deputy Lou Antu told 1200 WOAI news.

The commotion sent horrified restaurant patrons into the movie theater lobby, but the gunman followed. He again attempted to open fire, and this time his gun didn’t jam. Garcia reportedly shot one man in the chest before Antu says an off-duty sheriff’s deputy working security the theater shot him once, dropping him to the floor.

Bexar County sheriff’s Sgt. Lisa Castellano reportedly chased the gunman toward the back of the theater. The 13-year department veteran cornered him after he ran into a men’s restroom and shot him before taking his gun.

This was not an attempted mass murder. This was a guy just trying to shoot a person, which, by the way, happens more than 100000 times a year in the USA, resulting in 31000 dead and more than 70000 wounded. That is more American lives lost in one year than in Iraq or Afghanistan for the duration of these wars. And that is just gun violence. I would say we have a problem.

This thread says 1 - 3 of 3 which is a lie. It is 1, 2, and 4, because 3 has been scissored away by jealousy, intolerance, spite, paranoid fear, or for hire or because of rampant fascism.

Look at the YaNKEELAND thread. It has been whacked all to hell by some childish ignorant censor.

Everyone has an opinion, and the guy screaming for censorship may be the next guy to have his ideas cut off.

Careful! The originator of this post in unstable and apparently likes guns! He could very well be a shooter, too.

Biker1, what is "gun violence"? I have never in my life seen a violent gun. It is the person behind the gun who is violent. What part of the "if someone wants to kill someone, they'll do it any way necessary" scenario don't you get? And even IF a new set of laws is passed to ban certain weapons, do you really, seriously believe for one minute that there won't be any more and people can't get them if they want them?
Do the strict drug laws stop anyone who wants any kind of drug from getting it? How about drunk driving laws? They are very strict and that doesn't stop anyone. WE DO NOT NEED MORE LAWS. WE NEED LESS IDIOTS!

Gun violence would be violence performed involving a gun. And the key is to make things as inaccessible as possible therefore driving the price out of reach. But it is not just about limiting access to assault weapons. It is about limiting access to people who really should not have a gun. And how much worse do you think the drunk driving situation would be if we didn't have the current laws?

Driving the price of guns and ammo up is not ever going to deter anyone from having it who wants it. Not ever. And most Liberals don't just want to limit the availability of assault-type weapons but rather any semi-automatic weapon. That would include most handguns and hunting rifles and shotguns. Even then, that is NOT going to stop someone who wants to get one. That would however make the guys who sell them in the back rooms and alleys very happy.
One of the best solutions that I see to curb the violence, whether it be by gun, knife, wrench or baseball bat, is to take steps toward a more peaceful populace and instill better values. But... that ain't about to happen any time soon, now is it.

This thread is just trying to glorify the reckless shooting of an off-duty pig.

This is the solution to these mass shootings. Plenty of concealed carry permitted folks...zt the movie thgeaters and the schools. Teachers need to be able to pack heat if they so choose.
