Sounds like a crappy system.

Police: Armed Citizen Kills Gunman at Oklahoma City Restaurant

By AWR hawkins
24 May 2018

An armed citizen shot and killed a gunman after he allegedly opened fire in an Oklahoma City restaurant Thursday night.
CNN reports that a man entered Louie’s Grill & Bar in Oklahoma City and began shooting. He then walked out of the restaurant and was shot dead by an armed citizen.

Two people — “an adult female and a juvenile female” — were shot when the attacker opened fire in the restaurant, and a man broke his leg trying to flee the scene.

The Oklahoma City Police tweeted:


Oklahoma City Police

@OKCPD
Lake Hefner shooting update: A man walked into the Louie’s restaurant and opened fire with a gun. Two people were shot. One person has been taken to a hospital with serious injuries. A bystander with a pistol confronted the shooter outside the restaurant and fatally shot him.

8:57 PM - May 24, 2018


Fox 13 reports that the two females who suffered gunshot wounds are expected to survive.

Police do not know the motive for the attack. They are asking residents to avoid the area as the investigation gets underway.

Memphis homeowner takes out two burglars with a AK-47...

Quote:
Some people like to keep a baseball bat by the door in the invent of an intruder. For one Memphis homeowner, an AK-47 got the job done.

Memphis Police responded Friday to a shooting where a resident had walked into his house in the middle of a break-in, CBS Memphis affiliate WREG-TV reports.

The homeowner, who asked to remain anonymous for his safety, said he came home from the barber shop around 7 p.m. to find his door pried open and his caged dog barking wildly. He says he then saw two men in his house, and when they spotted him they drew their weapons.

According to Local Memphis, one of the burglar's guns jammed, and the other did manage to fire. The two then ran to the kitchen.

"I'm assuming they were trying to go out of my back door," the homeowner said, "so as they go through there I jumped in the closet and get my AK-47." He then found them on his patio, aimed his rifle and opened fire.

The two men, identified by authorities as 28-year-old Azell Witherspoon and 17-year-old Demond Robinson, were dead by the time police arrived.

The homeowner was brought in for questioning but released after he reportedly offered footage from his home surveillance system to back up his self-defense story. The District Attorney General's office determined that no charges will be filed at this time.

The individual who was detained has been released without charge. All evidence was presented to the DAG's Office and it was determined that no criminal charges will be filed at this point. https://t.co/a1EvyXEvRA
— Memphis Police Dept (@MEM_PoliceDept) June 2, 2018

"These boys need their father and need some type of discipline," the homeowner said to WMC-TV. "They're out here without any fear." He said he regretted the loss of life but stated, "it was either him or them."

It's not the first run-in with crime for the Memphis man. His house is still pockmarked with bullet holes from a previous shooting at his property. "I don't know what's going on but I know I'm going to defend my life to the best of my ability," he told WMC-TV.

He said he does worry about possible retaliation.

"You never know how someone else's family may perceive the situation," he said.

It was a violent weekend in Memphis. Beyond this incident, there four people killed and five injured by gunfire in a 31-hour period, according to Memphis Police Department's Twitter account.

BREAKING: Armed Civilians Shoot Would-Be Mass Shooter At Washington Walmart

by Brock Simmons June 17, 2018

“There were three civilians going after him (the shooter) to shoot him and two of them had their guns up — and then the third guy shot him through the window of the car,” explains Megan Chadwick to KIRO7 news, as she witnessed a would-be mass shooter taken out by multiple armed citizens at a Walmart just outside of Olympia, WA.


KIRO 7 reports:

An armed civilian took down a shooter after at least two people were shot Sunday night at a Washington state Walmart, police said.

Tumwater police said the civilian, described by officers as a good Samaritan, shot and killed the suspect at the scene.

The shooting happened just after 5:30 p.m. at the Walmart Supercenter in Tumwater, about 65 miles south of Seattle.


“I heard two bangs. It sounded like gunshots to me,” witness Robert Berwick said. “I looked down the aisle and saw a person running.”

That’s when Berwick ran, too. There was chaos in the parking lot, and he said the shooting suspect tried to carjack another man. That’s when the suspect was shot.

“I thanked him for saving my life,” Berwick said of the attempted carjacking victim who shot the suspect. “He didn’t look like he had any regrets. I hope he doesn’t have any.”

Another witness to the shooting, Megan Chadwick, said her husband saw the civilian take down the shooter.

“He said he watched him (the shooter) take his last breath,” Chadwick said. “There were three civilians going after him (the shooter) to shoot him and two of them had their guns up — and then the third guy shot him through the window of the car.”

Chadwick said her husband was armed as well.

She was inside the Walmart during the shooting with her multiple children.

“I looked over and saw hundreds of people running out. … Just a flood of people and everyone was screaming and frantic. … When we got about to the door, I heard someone say, ‘Gun. Shooter.’ And I knew something was serious,” Chadwick said.

[news video at above linked article]

The Olympian continues with:

Laura Wohl, spokeswoman for the Tumwater Police Department, said an adult man who had been shot was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He was shot while the armed suspect tried to carjack his vehicle, Wohl said.

A person with his own weapon shot the suspect outside Walmart. That man was still on the scene about 7 p.m. and was being interviewed by law enforcement.

The incident began as a report of a drunken driver in the area of Israel Road and Tyee Drive near the Toyota dealership. People reported a driver was driving in the wrong direction in the vicinity. When police arrived, they couldn’t find the vehicle.

They then responded to shots fired in the area of the nearby roundabout, Wohl said. They learned that a man had fired shots trying to carjack two vehicles.

A 16-year-old girl was injured, but not seriously. The suspect then headed to Walmart, Wohl said.

When they arrived at the Walmart, they learned that a man had tried to carjack a car, and shot a man inside the car twice. He then tried to carjack another car. Two citizens in the parking lot drew weapons; at least one of them shot and killed the armed man, she said.

Darren Gossler of Elma was in the store when the shooting started. He tweeted: “I was in the dairy section. Heard about 5 or 6 pops. Ran out a side emergency exit and attempted to run to my car in the parking lot but heard 4 more pops in the lot. Caught a quick glimpse of a male with what appeared to be a handgun. Ducked under some cars and ran to Costco.”

Suspected Home Invader Refuses to Leave, Is Shot Dead by Female Homeowner

The sheriff in Geneva County, Alabama, says a suspected home invader was shot dead by a female homeowner Saturday night after he refused to heed her warnings.

WTVY reports that the unidentified suspect allegedly began beating on the woman’s door and refused to stop though she gave him numerous warnings. As he persisted she ultimately opened fire, killing the suspect.

Geneva County Sheriff Tony Helms said the incident occurred in a “remote area” and that the woman is not expected to face any charges for killing the suspect.

Stories of women defending their lives with firearms are more and more common.

On January 2, 2017, Breitbart News reported that a Wilmington, North Carolina, resident Kay Dickson was assaulted at gunpoint upon returning to her apartment. WWAY reported that Dickinson “had just gotten off work and was going into her apartment at Colonial Parke when she was attacked.” The suspect held her at gunpoint, “beat her and then tied her up with a broken belt in her bedroom.” She was able to free herself, retrieve her gun, and kill the suspect.

On April 23, 2017, Breitbart News reported that a St. Louis 7-11 clerk was taking a smoke break at 3:50 a.m. when an armed robbery suspect approached to rob her. The clerk pulled her own gun and exchanged fire with the suspect, shooting him multiple times. His wounds proved fatal. The clerk was also wounded but was in stable condition following the incident.

On May 27, 2017, Breitbart News reported that a female homeowner shot and killed a suspect who allegedly brought his seven-year-old son along for the home invasion. According to the San Antonio Express-News, the suspect allegedly tried to break in through a window in the very room where the homeowner was sleeping. The woman armed herself, and fired at least two rounds. The alleged intruder was transported to a hospital and pronounced dead.

On June 7, 2017, Breitbart News reported on an Indianapolis mother who protected her children by opening fire and killing a home invasion suspect who struck in broad daylight. The intrusion suspect died in the doorway of the residence.

On September 18, 2017, Breitbart News reported that a female accountant shot and critically wounded a suspect who entered her office while she was there alone. The suspect was being pursued by police when he entered and the accountant asked him to stop moving toward her before she pulled the trigger. He did not stop, so she shot him in the neck.

The examples of women using guns for self-defense goes on…

Texas mother shoots carjacker in the face...

Quote:
A mother in Texas shot a carjacker who was stealing her vehicle while her two young children were inside, police say.

The woman jumped back into her SUV after the suspect got into the driver's seat at a Dallas petrol station on Wednesday night, according to police.

Police say she grabbed her gun and shot the carjacker in the face when he refused to stop, causing him to crash.

The woman's sons - aged two and four - were not hurt in the incident.

The alleged thief's condition is unknown, but the woman said she has a message for him.

"I wish I would've killed you, if I didn't already," she told CBS Dallas.

She had gone into the petrol station's convenience store when an employee alerted her that a man was entering her SUV.

She told local media she jumped into the back seat and told the man - later identified by police as 36-year-old Ricky Wright - to stop driving.

After he refused, she reached into the glove compartment to retrieve a handgun, and fired one shot at his face.

"I proceeded to jump in my backseat and told the gentleman to stop, to get out the car", she told KDFW-News. "He would not get out of the car."

"He turned around and looked at me. I reached over the arm rest to get to my glove compartment and that's when I fired at him."

She added: "I should have just emptied the whole clip but I didn't.

"I hope that woke him up."

Police say the man then crashed the car into a lamp pole. He was arrested and taken to hospital.

Police say the woman was questioned at the scene, and was released.

She is unlikely to face any charges, authorities add.

This is exactly the sort of article that many gun control activists will ignore.
A woman using a firearm to protect herself and her infant children doesn't play into their gun banning message.
