After a mass shooting, there’s always some liberal asking “if all it took was a good guy with a gun to prevent these tragedies, how come they never do?”
There are two reasons why the question is absurd. One, mass shooters tend to selectively pick “gun free zones” as targets because they don’t like victims who have the ability to shoot back. Since 1950, all but two mass public shootings have occurred in such “gun free zones,” which somehow didn’t manage to stop them.
Second, if someone with a firearm stops a mass shooter in progress, it likely won’t become a mass shooting, and therefore in those cases a mass shooting wasn’t stopped by someone with a gun, it was prevented.
This story is a bit of an oddity: a man tried to carry out a knife spree in a gun free zone. Thankfully, there was an off-duty cop present…
A 28-year-old man was shot and killed by an off-duty cop after the suspect went on a stabbing rampage at a Tauton mall that was the end of his trail of terror.
A Massachusetts man stabbed four people, two fatally, at a home and a shopping mall south of Boston before he was shot and killed by an off-duty law enforcement officer, authorities said late Tuesday.
Bristol County District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III told reporters that A___ D___*, 28, of Taunton, crashed a car outside a home in the city, walked inside and stabbed an 80-year-old woman and another woman. The 80-year-old was taken to a hospital, where she later died. The other woman was being treated for life-threatening injuries.
Neighbors told WFXT the women who were attacked in the home were mother and daughter.
“My son was here and heard the loud noise,” a neighbord told the station. “An accident had happened, someone was coming out of the house. [He] realized that person had a knife.”
D___ then drove to the Silver City Galleria mall, where he crashed a car into the front of a Macy’s store. Quinn said D___ assaulted three people inside the store before running to a Bertucci’s restaurant and stabbing two other people, including a 56-year-old man who later died. An off-duty deputy sheriff intervened at the restaurant and shot D___ dead, Quinn said.
