A teenage gunman, armed with high-powered weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition went on a shooting rampage and killed hundreds of church members this past weekend. He continued to shoot, maim and kill innocent victims until he finally ran out of ammunition, saving just one final round for himself.
Or so the news stories might have read in the utopian fantasy world so many proponents of gun control live. But instead, Jeanne Assam, armed with a handgun of her own, dropped the assassin in his tracks, preventing dozens, possibly hundreds, of additional innocent victims.
Does anyone think gun control measures would’ve prevented the murderous kid from getting his weapon? Or would gun control have just prevented Assam from being able to stop him before he killed more?
