A law-abiding person with a gun prevented a shooting that was taking place at a mall food court in Indiana over the weekend, debunking another Democrat lie. However, despite receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from local officials, the mainstream media is likely to overlook this story.
A guy with a rifle opened fire in the food court of a mall in Greenwood, Indiana, about 15 miles south of Indianapolis, on Sunday night, killing three people and injuring two more. The shooter was eventually taken down by “a good Samaritan with a handgun,” as described by Greenwood police chief James Ison.

The 22-year-old bystander who was in the food court when the shooting began was able to halt the gunman nearly right away. Ison stated at a news conference that the man who was legitimately carrying a pistol in that food court is the actual hero of the day.
The “good Samaritan” decisive action was praised by Greenwood’s mayor, Mark Myers, who said, “This person saved lives tonight. On behalf of the City of Greenwood, I am grateful for his quick action and heroism in this situation.”

The national media, much of which has been hyping up every “mass shooting” using dubious data, has not matched the local leaders’ praise for the law-abiding firearm owner. Instead, it has been noticeably quiet after a good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun and demonstrated the value of lawful firearm ownership.
Police have not yet identified the culprit, and no reason has been given. However, it makes no difference who he was or why he started shooting since a nice person with a gun who is completely working with authorities stopped him in his tracks just seconds after he began his attack on customers.
The response of that young bystander contrasts sharply with the response of hundreds of law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas, who waited outside the classroom for more than an hour before taking action to put down the shooter. This incident once again demonstrates why placing too much trust in the government is a risky course of action.
