This legally armed military man rushed into action to protect children during El Paso attack

CALEB HOWE

EXCERPT:

In every tragedy in this country we find out about the heroes who risk their own lives to try and help or save others. Already, El Paso is no exception.

Glen Oakley is one of those heroes. Oakley was in the Cielo Vista shopping mall Saturday when shots rang out and the violence and tragedy began to unfold outside of the Walmart next door. He was shopping in Foot Locker and heard the gunshots, he said. When he went into the mall he saw children running in fear and confusion.

"It was a whole bunch of kids in there," he told NBC affiliate KTSM. "I hope nothing happened to the kids. I tried to pick up as many as I could and bring them out with me."

"I pulled my gun out," he told the reporter, because Oakley is a licensed gun-owner and had his weapon with him. "When I hear gunshots I just think ... take cover, save whoever you can."

Oakley told the reporters he is a member of the military, which no doubt helped with his reflexes and response to the life-threating situation. But Oakley's concern wasn't for himself, it was for the children.

I wonder how a first responder is supposed to differentiate between armed individuals during an active shooting.

The leftís only answer is to take guns away. Lost on them is that nearly all of these shootings occur in gun free zones.

So what do they think will happen when all zones are gun free?

Targets need to be hardened, not softened.

Yeah, because we all know that criminals will miraculously comply with a gun ban law and hand all of theirs in too? :no:

I wonder why you are not questioning how this guy was able to not be shot by first responders. 🤔

Good question. Maybe when they get there 5-10 minutes after the armed individual gets there they can ask him.

Youíve become the unthinkable. An even bigger fool than you were 15 years ago.

Where are those always claiming that shooters never target places that allow guns to be carried openly?

The guy in the OP, was a concealed carry permit holder and was not openly carrying. Also, the shooting happened across the street at a Walmart that had a no firearms policy.

Whatever point you are trying to make is making you look even more foolish than you have already made yourself.

Give him a couple of more posts. He will be even more of a fool.

Well like anything else in the world, itís a matter of degree. On one end of the spectrum you have the gun free zones getting attacked quite frequently. On the other end of the spectrum, you have the gun stores getting attacked quite rarely. Why do you suppose that is?
