Bad news for the anti-gun lobby
Armed bystander hailed as hero (but not by the main-stream media)
Indianapolis, Indiana NBC affiliate WHTR reports that a good guy with a gun put down the perpetrator of a mass shooting (where three or more people were shot and killed in a single event).
At 5:57:03 p.m., Elisjsha Dicken, an armed bystander, fired on the shooter from 40 yards away, according to police. Within 15 seconds from when the shooting began, Dicken fired 10 rounds hitting the shooter as the shooter tried to retreat into the bathroom but collapsed and died.

Oddly, unlike the Uvalde event that happened two months ago, this story has not been picked up by the main stream media
Unlike the Uvalde event, where we are getting nightly reports on how dissatisfied the local population has become with the situation, we hear nothing of this story on main stream media.
However, with the numbers of felons being released by Democrat district attorneys and the flood of drugs across our border, this problem proliferates to a degree unimaginable for many. Still, if you want proof, do a search (or three, as with this post) and see what stories you find. Just make certain to use a different search engine for each search (for most complete results).
A good person with a gun defends freedom from a knife-wielding intruder
An 80-year-old woman shoots and kills young intruder after he stabs her husband
The Washington Post conveys the story of a Sultan, Washington woman who was forced to defend herself and her son after her husband was stabbed.
Age is nothing but a number.
An 80-year-old woman in the small town of Sultan, Wash., proved that Thursday night when she shot and killed an intruder who broke into her home.
At the moment, details are thin.
A man from Gold Bar, Wash. — a town of about 2,000 — broke into the woman’s home around 8:30 p.m. Thursday while she was enjoying an evening with her husband, 75, and son, 45. According to a Komo News report, police said the man broke in through the back door. After hearing a noise, the woman walked into the back room, where the 25-year-old intruder stood, wielding a large knife.
Her husband was on the ground.
The intruder had stabbed her husband in the abdomen, felling but not killing him. Before calling 911, the woman took matters into her own hands, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. She snuck in the back bedroom, presumably unnoticed, where she grabbed a gun she hides there.
She returned to the main room, took aim and fired several shots into the intruder, killing him.
She and her son managed to escape without any injuries, authorities said. Her husband was airlifted to the Harborview Regional Medical Center.

Whoever voted for the open borders of Biden voted for this drug epidemic
Let’s be clear: everyone who voted to open the Southern border to unchecked entry also voted for this drug epidemic.
If you don’t like Mexican opioids and Chinese synthetic opioids flooding the streets of your small town, then don’t vote for a Chinese/Mexican/Ukrainian/Russian-connected politician.
Another good person with a gun stops a thug with a knife
“I know I did the right thing:” Customer shoots and kills armed robber at gas station
Saint Louis, Missouri NBC affiliate KSDK tells us how a customer stepped in to stop an armed robber holding a knife to the clerk’s neck.
Most people would try to run away from a robbery situation, but one customer felt called to run toward it.
His courageous effort ended in a deadly shooting, which possibly saved more lives than the one lost.
“Taking somebody’s life is not an everyday thing, neither is saving someone’s life,” the customer, who wished to remain anonymous said.
Those thoughts now consume his mind after not only witnessing an armed robbery Saturday morning at a St. Charles QuikTrip but also stepping in to stop it.
“He grabbed a backpack and ran inside, looking for I guess the clerk. I saw him grab her and drag her to the front to the counter, something wasn’t right when I saw that, so me being concealed carry, I had my gun on me and I just waited,” the customer said.
The customer saw it all unfold from his car, parked in front of the QT on First Capitol Drive.
“I walked up to the door and I saw him with a knife to her throat. She was emptying out the cash register and I took a step in and peeked my head in to ask if everything was okay. I couldn’t see his face but he was saying yes, but I could see her face she was saying no, she was scared,” he said.
Police named the robbery suspect 26-year-old Lance Bush from St. Louis City. “I pulled my gun up and I asked him are you sure everything’s okay and that’s when the suspect said ‘no it’s not okay, but I got something for you and he grabbed his bag, ran from around the counter and started running towards me and that’s when I fired shots,” the customer said.
He recalls shooting four times before Bush fell to the floor. Shortly after he told the clerk to call the police, he did as well.
“I don’t think I honestly had a choice. He already had a knife at her throat, he could’ve pulled out something bigger than what I had then you would’ve had two people dead instead of one,” he said.

Despite the obvious evil of the robber, the “journalist” ends with one dig
Despite the following facts:
- The robber was holding a knife to the neck of a female clerk while robbing the gas station
- The robber had stolen a vehicle to get to the gas station
- The robber had threatened and was running at the hero when the robber was shot
- The robber was suspected of having committed two other armed robberies that morning
Still, the “journalist” ends with:
The customer was detained and released.
At this time, he says he has not been charged.
Anti-gun bias, much? Wish for heroes to be punished and criminals released, much?

I hope we have more young men like this

Except for the fact that the hero of the St. Louis QT gas station might feel like he must hide to protect himself and his family, I would like more of the unknown heroes to emerge.
That might cause the thugs of this world to think twice before entering a shop and threatening some poor cashier.
It’s sad that these play nation-wide. I would bet that, if a thug were going around terrorizing or killing journalists and a hero came about to rectify the situation, it would get nation-wide coverage.
