Carjacker Shoots Man in Walmart Parking Lot, What Happened Next Has People Calling This Citizen a Hero

Published

One of the big arguments that anti-gun leftists often use to justify taking away firearms is that good guys with guns do not stop bad guys with guns. Apparently these people think the police never do an honest day’s work, because that clearly isn’t true.

Granted, what they really mean is an average, armed citizen doesn’t stop a bad guy with a gun, but alas, here too they are dead wrong. In fact, just such an individual is currently making the rounds in the news after stoping a violent carjacker from hurting more innocent people.

Yes, heroes still exist in modern America.

The incident began when police received a call about a drunk driver driving in the wrong direction near a Toyota dealership in Tumwater, just outside Olympia. When they arrived, they heard shots down the road at a nearby roundabout, according to The News Tribune.

At the roundabout, they learned an armed man had tried to carjack two vehicles, injuring a 16-year-old girl in the process, though not seriously.

The suspect then proceeded to a local Walmart, where he attempted to steal two additional cars. In one attempted carjacking, the suspect shot a man twice, leaving him in critical condition.

That’s when, according to the Seattle Times, two men armed with concealed firearms drew their sidearms and approached the carjacker. One man discharged his weapon, killing the gunman. According to KCPQ-TV, the man who ultimately subdued the carjacker was a father walking with his family.

Witness Bryan Adams said, “He is a hero. He took action. I really think more people could have been shot…he saved us all.”

A crazed lunatic starts trying to pick off folks in a store parking lot and who is there to stop the madness? The police? Of course not. The average response time from a cop is eight minutes. No way they’d make it there in time to stop the carnage.

Nope, who brings this nightmare to an end before more innocent people die is a good guy with a gun, a man exercising his Second Amendment right to bear arms, just as the Founding Fathers intended.

It’s a beautiful thing when the system is allowed to work.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
