Mass shooting stopped by CCW holder
Story here. He threw down on the shooter, but held fire due to innocent people being on the other side. The killer saw him, and committed suicide at that point.
Strangely, this seems to have stayed a local story. The blogs are carrying it, but the national media seems absent.
Does anyone find it rather odd that the frequency of these happen to correspond with the President's push for gun control?
I remember the research done after the Batman shooting in Aurora that the guy was on some strong meds and treating at the University for depression. Not to mention who is treating "physician" was.
I'd wager these shooters were on some pharmaceuticals.

Of course the media is downplaying it....it conflicts with their narrative.

I may well be the case that the mere sign of armed resistance from Meli caused the killer flee and then kill himself, but I don't see that interpretation as necessarily supported here.
What I see is a guy a bit anguished that he didn't have a clean shot, anguished that he had to consider taking a life, but comforted no more innocent lives were lost.
I also can support not making a big things of this guy without confirmation from an independent witness or two.

I read a similar story in another mass shooting, although I forget which one. I agree there is not much of a story here.
