Mass Shooting Thwarted in Arizona by Concealed Carrier
Freedom Outpost ^ | Oct. 23, 2013 | Tim Brown

While people like Piers Morgan, Barack Obama and Dianne Feinstein continue to push fear-mongering over guns, a recent story makes the point that guns are not evil, but rather a good deterrent to evil. This couldn't be more apparent than at a recent party that took place in Arizona, where a citizen who was carrying his weapon probably saved everyone at the party from a gunman with a rifle.

10-things-not-to-do-when-carrying-concealedA 27-year-old man got into an argument at with some party goers. After a time, the man was asked to leave, and he did.

A short while later he returned. Armed with a rifle, he began firing off shots outside the home.

What happened next is reported by AZ Central:

The man pointed the rifle at partygoers and a 39-year-old partygoer pulled out a handgun and shot the 27 year old before police arrived, Glendale Police Department spokeswoman Officer Tracey Breeden said. The shooter did not try to leave and waited for officers to arrive.

The shooter has been cooperative with investigators, she said. He was questioned and released by detectives.

"This is standard procedure under these type of circumstances," Breeden said. "Information and evidence detectives have gathered leads them to believe the 27-year-old was not only firing his rifle, endangering partygoers, but also pointed the weapon at other partygoers, endangering them, prior to the 39-year-old displaying a weapon and shooting the 27-year-old."

The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending, Breeden said.

Just another CCW/CHL self-defense, righteous-ending story, disappearing down the media’s ‘rabbit hole’.

No, wasn’t me. I remember the incident. I believe that I posted an article about it on freerepublic. I did not include it on the list below, because it was not as clear a case as the others:
