This past Saturday, a man was shot at Campbell Park in Titusville, FL. He’d gotten into a fistfight with another person, then left, and returned with a gun. When the gunman began to shoot, a bystander with a licensed gun shot him. There were over 100 people at the back-to-school event.
The gunman was airlifted to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. The bystander, fully cooperating with law enforcement, was uninjured. Charges weren’t expected to be filed.
I have mixed feelings about this story. I’m glad Florida has concealed carry laws. I’m so grateful that the bystander was able to effectively protect 100 people. I was only able, however, to find the online story on the Fox News site and a local ABC station.
Gee, I wonder why?Published in
