Anti-Gun Left Quibbles Over “Samaritan,” Who Stopped Killer, for Violating Mall’s “Gun Free Zone”

A fiend with a firearm entered the Greenwood Park Mall in Greenwood, Indiana, intending to kill as many people as he could. After all, it was a soft target: a “gun-free zone.”

Fortunately, for so many people who may or may not know who they are, a legally armed 22-year-old man also ignored the mall’s senseless “no guns rule” and stopped the killer’s slaughter.

According to NBC News, tragically, the armed villain killed three people and wounded two before the heroic young man stopped him.

Greenwood Police Chief Jim Ison praised the young man, saying, “The real hero of the day was the Samaritan that was lawfully carrying a firearm who was able to stop the shooter almost as soon as it began.”

The mayor, Mark W. Meyers, agreed and “also praised the ‘Good Samaritan’ who stepped in, saying in a statement Sunday evening, ‘This person saved lives tonight.’”

Unbelievably, some leftist, anti-gun/self-defense rights activists criticized people for referring to the hero as a “Good Samaritan.”

One man tweeted, “The term, ‘Good Samaritan’ came from a Bible passage of a man from Samaria who stopped on the side of the road to help a man who was injured and ignored. I cannot believe we live in a world where the term can equally apply to someone *killing* someone… my God.”

Does this gun-stupid moron believe the alternative scenario would have been preferable? Perhaps he needs to learn the difference between “killing” and “murder.” Killing to stop a killer is virtuous.

Brandon Tatum’s fellow Salem radio host Mike Gallagher pointed out that after the mayor and chief praised the man who saved untold numbers of people from death, a local Indianapolis TV station quibbled about the malls’ “code of conduct saying he was not supposed to be armed….” Really?

Gallagher also said, “I guarantee you this story is going to spark many people today to go out, go to a range, go take a course, get your concealed carry permit, learn how to be a responsible gun owner so you can defend yourself against the evil that is all around us.”
