Still gives Assam some credit though.
Goin' out in a blaze of glory :banghead:
The last thing the brass wants to hear, is that citizens with guns is a good thing or resulted in a good thing.
I think Ray Charles can see that's what they're doing.
BTW, what killed this idiot isn't relevant. It's what stopped him from continuing his murderous rampage. I think the security guards bullets did that, his ending himself was a result of that, I think.
Of course, what he died of is completely and totally irrelevant. She stopped the masacre in progress. The scumbag dieing is just bonus points.
I think it may make Ms. Assam feel better, though, that she was not the final determinant of his end.
Although she may have put a few holes in him, she now knows she is not responsible for a man's death, regardless of deservedness. I think that is huge.
Agreed.I'm not normally one for conspiracy theories and paranoia, but mu tinfoil hat is tingleing over this "suicide" info, as well as the reports of her being fired from the Mineapolis PD.Seems like a LOT of info being dug up REAL quick to downplay/discredit the whole "average citizen with a ccw" saves the day.....
So what, he ended his own life before he could have bled out an the ground? It was still this lady's courage and swift actions that stopped this piece of excrement IN HIS TRACKS. She interceded, ended his killing spree, and put him in the position where death at his own hands was his only last option.
I think this could actually work out in our favor. Groups like the Brady Campaign are bound to use a "he killed, then committed suicide" spin to try to pass this off as one more gun tragedy. However, it will be very easy to call them on this. This is still a case of an average concealed carry holder saving lives in a shooting that wasn't in a "gun free zone." The result of their attempted spin will be even more credibility lost in the eyes of the general public.
Security Guard lady must have been using 9mm...
Could go either way.
On one hand, I can see the "powers that be" wanting to downplay the fact that a legal CCW stopped a genuine massacre in progress.
On the other hand, the coroner may have used any and all evidence at his disposal to clear her of the actual cause of death.
Either way, she stopped this nutbag before he could kill anyone else.
Call it any way you want to, the lady did good and the goofball is where he deserves to be.
As noted, the result is good for Assam. She does not have to live with having killed another human. She stopped the attack, the perp is dead, and she didn't kill him.
that's what she did.
Tin foil hat or not....
I think the BG wanted to die, rather than answer for his actions.....
he's answering for them right now, and will be for a loooooooooooooooong time.
No possibility of a civil suit and other such stuff if the murder offed himself.
It's also easier to mentally cope with (kinda like how firing squads always had one or two blanks so the soldiers could each have the mental reprieve that "maybe I had the blank".
Even if he hadn't killed himself, I can say with certainty that Jesus does not pardon unrepentant homicidal murderers. So the fact that he killed himself is irrelevant to his current location.
