Skip to comments.GOD, GUTS, and GUNS: “Selfless” Student Who Stopped The Seattle Pacific University Shooting
Posted on 06/07/2014 9:29:23 AM PDT by rktman
It didnt take long after yesterdays shotgun attack by a non-student at Seattle Pacific University for word to get out that the brave actions of students ended the attack before far more people could be injured or killed.
The friends of the first man to go after the armed suspect quickly identified the bashful hero to the world via Twitter.

The MSM must be beside themselves... a poster boy for the anti gun crowd, a person of color yet. And it turns out he’s a patriot and appreciates the right to keep & bear arms.
“Somehow” none of this was reported in the local media, as far as I can tell. At least not in the first 24 hours. But we all knew that the SHOOTER had a pro-gun site listed on his Facebook page.
the leftist media will be in full spin and supress mode on this one. may God bless and protect the young hero Meis.
Damn those Constitution supporters.
God Bless this young man..heard about this last night that his facebook page says that he is a supporter of the NRA
The Seattle Times described Meis as “outdoorsy” without mentioning that he is (apparently) a hunter, gun owner, and strong 2nd Amendment advocate. If the SHOOTER were any of those things, those details would be front-and-center. Media bias sucks.
Posted this one after I mentioned I read something about Mr. Meis being an NRA supporter/liker.
Young ladies, marry that man, or his like.
it’s so sadly predictable; isn’t it. let’s hope and pray the young man will be able to start his family in peace.
He had to wait till the killer ran out of of ammo and stopped to reload. If he had a gun he could have shot the killer right away.
He stopped the attack with an illegally concealed can of pepper spray.
If he had followed the school rules a lot of students would be dead.
I’m waiting for the attorney general to issue an indictment and throw the book at this guy.
The local media have still put a fig leaf over the fact that “Firearms” was listed as a topic under “Likes” on his Facebook page, and that sub-topics included the NRA and several gun manufacturers. The odds against that information being suppressed if he had been the SHOOTER are a million-to-one. No, actually, IMPOSSIBLE. The closest the local media came to showing him as he really is was by mentioning that he is “knowledgeable about guns” and participates in a paintball-type sport.
Jon Meis had the knowledge of guns to realize that he would have time while it was being reloaded. I wonder too if being around guns made the event a bit less scary to him allowing him to think clearly.
On some donation page (youdonate) or something someone set up a page for him. It is over $25,000. And his gift registry for his wedding (2-weeks from today!) has been filled!
Donations are also coming in for Paul Lee’s family, the freshman student from Portland that was killed.
A good article on Jon Meis.
Approaching $28,000! Hope it hits a million.
At least some of the comments are making it known of Jon’s knowledge and hobby of guns.
In another article it had the Mayor saying something about that he went to SPU to talk not only about this shooting, but ALL gun violence that blah, blah, blah.
Dancing on the tears of so many to push his political agenda. My son is at SPU and watching it on TV in their dorms he and others began booing and yelling at the TV.
Here is a link to a “letter to President Obama” where the guy is requesting a medal for Jon Meis. With an excerpt that I thought was good.
“By awarding Jon Meis with this honor, it would send a message that the greatest weapon we have against random acts of violence is in fact the very spirit of the American people. It elevates the unique qualities we see as “American”, which cross party lines and have nothing to do with gun control debates or conversations on mental health.
Evil will happen despite all logistical and political efforts by anyone. How we choose to respond to it as a country is determined by a culture created by individuals. Individuals are most influenced by heroes.”
Hope they don’t commemorate the killer in a service along with the victims like they did at Virginia Tech.
and an Electrical Engineering major to boot...gotta watch us EE’s, we may look like dorks but we pack a wallop...lol
Shocking to hear that. :>}
But someone could have been hurt if guns were allowed on campus. /s
Why do you say that? I haven't heard anything about carrying pepper spray being illegal in Washington State.
According to the information I have, pepper spray is prohibited on the college campus.
Perhaps the hall monitors have special dispensation? After this incident, they should!
Even if it was a violation, I doubt SPU would hammer him over it. I’d be very surprised if they did.
Schools routinely expel students for drawing pictures of instuments of self defense. They will not let this good deed go unpunished.
This is a Christian university. They don’t operate the same way your typical liberal institution would.
Not to mention the publicity backlash if they were to do such a thing...
