Skip to comments.Huntsville man confronts another man at skate park (Alabama)

Kevin Weil felt his two young sons needed to burn off some energy following a Sunday afternoon birthday party, so they drove downtown to the Lydia Gold Skatepark.
Another man was taking what Weil said were "lewd" pictures of two scantily-clad women lying on the graffiti-covered concrete. Weil, 38, said he asked the man if he thought the pictures were appropriate considering the park was filled with kids.
The man with the camera became irate and fetched a large handgun possibly a TEC-9 semi-automatic from his sport utility vehicle.
"He walked straight toward everybody and said, 'I will kill everyone here,'" said Weil. "He swept (the gun) across everyone, including the girls who were with him. Everyone was terrified."

A well trained armed civilian.
And the media will make a really big deal about how many kids this guy saved. NOT!
Guy apparently did good. Could have been a real tragedy.
Though advancing on an armed man in that way is not necessarily a good tactic. Glad it worked out ok this time.
Just to give y’all an idea of media hysteria over guns, the initial report I got as a news alert when it was happening referred to a man with - this is a direct quote - a “sub-machine gun” at the skate park.
No, that wouldn’t have caused a panic. Of course not.
“Some good news to brighten your day”
Yeah, that you won’t hear the media repeat.
Miami Vice called. They want their Tec 9 back.
Must be a fake story since everyone knows that guns are only used by bad people to commit crimes, not by law-abiding citizens to prevent them.
A case where bringing a knife to a gun fight worked out ok.
The idiot with the camera did have every right to be there and taking pictures, but obviously lacked the sense to handle matters correctly.
Yep, but he kind of forfeited that right when he produced a weapon and said "I will kill everyone here." That constitutes assault with a deadly weapon.
There are laws against indecent exposure.
you know, its time to stop with the "techinically" correct statements...likes "its his right" and start taking stands against immorality,pandering,perverting....
return to Godliness...its the only way out of this mess on Earth
Not much to confirm Weil’s account, but there seems to be confirmation that the other man had a “large weapon”.
Remember, this is what Weil is saying, we have no word on the other side yet.
I wonder if the other gun was functional. It appears that Weil was the only one who shot.
