America’s 1st Freedom | Armed Texan Proves Gun-Banners Wrong …

Demanding Moms head Shannon Watts has been proven wrong once again.

I’ve mentioned before in this column how Watts, head of Bloomberg’s astroturf advocacy group Moms Demand Action, has consistently bashed NRA EVP Wayne LaPierre’s statement that “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” Watts has even gone so far as to say, “This has never happened. Data shows it doesn’t happen.”

Luckily, a Texas concealed-carry permit holder didn’t listen to Watts and leave his gun at home when he went out to eat last Wednesday evening. Instead, he stopped what might have ended up being a grisly mass murder scene.

Here’s the story.

Last Wednesday night about 6:15, 48-year-old James Jones walked into Arlington sports bar/restaurant Zona Caliente and began yelling incoherently, then approached the manager and shot him to death. An armed man who was eating at the restaurant with his

Good Samaritan Stops Gunman at Texas Bar

ARLINGTON, Texas — A concealed carry holder is being heralded as a hero by Arlington police for preventing mass murder by killing an “incoherent” gunman at a sports bar Wednesday evening.

Before he was shot about 6:15 p.m., the gunman killed the manager of Zona Caliente in the 6500 block of South Cooper Street, police spokesman Christopher Cook said.

Police later identified the gunman as 48-year-old James Jones of Grand Prairie and the victim as 37-year-old Cesar Perez of Duncanville. The man who killed Jones has not been identified.

Authorities later found two loaded guns and two knives on Jones, Cook said Thursday.

“We do believe he had the capacity to do much greater harm,” Cook said. 

When Jones entered the business, some witnesses told police, he started yelling incoherently while standing at the bar.

“People didn’t know who he was yelling at,” Cook said. 

Perez was trying to talk to Jones when he was fatally shot. Police do not believe they

Walmart customer’s concealed handgun discharges

Miami Valley Hospital President Mark Shaker is leaving “to seek out other career opportunities” and the hospital’s COO will serve as executive in charge beginning June 3. 

WHIO.com and the Dayton Daily News have obtained an internal communication announcing the departure of Shaker, whose last day with Dayton’s largest hospital — and member of the Premier Health Partners network — will be June 2.

He has been with the Miami Valley healthcare community 31 years, according to the internal communication, which also gives a timeline of Shaker’s career: 

 “During his tenure, Mark was instrumental in introducing the first operational improvement division at MVH using Lean and Six Sigma methods to improve operational performance. 

While acting as Good Sam’s COO, Mark was also instrumental in the consolidation of The Dayton Heart Hospital with the Good Samaritan’s heart and vascular program.

Walmart customer’s concealed handgun discharges a round

With bombers streaking overhead, thousands gathered Tuesday at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force to catch a glimpse of 101-year-old Doolittle Tokyo Raider Richard E. Cole and to mark the 75th anniversary of the Raiders’ daring raid against Japan in World War II.

Doug Bruser took one day off work to see something he and others may never see again in an event both somber and festive.

“It’s a once-a-lifetime chance to do it,” said Bruser, 55, of Mason.

Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldein compared the bravery of the Raiders on “a one-way mission” that for most ended in crash landings or bailing out over China to the signers of the Declaration of Independence who stood up to an oppressor.

Eighty Army Air Forces airmen climbed aboard 16 B-25 Mitchell bombers, taking

Should You Intervene in a Shooting? If So, When?

From Texas Standard

A robbery turned fatal at the Rolling Oaks Mall in San Antonio on Sunday. The shooting has brought up questions about concealed carry and when it’s appropriate for people to intervene in such incidents.

Two men were robbing the Kay Jewelers in the mall. One of the suspects was reportedly waving a gun and shot and killed a bystander, who had tried to stop the robbers.

Another man, who some news sources are calling a “good samaritan,” pulled out his licensed concealed handgun and fired his weapon, critically wounding one of the robbers. The suspects shot and killed him.

Two other bystanders were wounded.

Robert Farago is the creator and editor of the blog “The Truth About Guns”. He says when he heard about the San Antonio shooting, his first thought was to question why the “good samaritan” decided to pull out his gun and begin shooting.

SAN ANTONIO — The shopper at a Texas mall who had a concealed carry license and shot a robbery suspect should not have been carrying a gun inside the mall, according to the mall’s policy.

On Sunday, a man was shot and killed while trying to stop a jewelry store robber at Rolling Oaks Mall in San Antonio. Another man, with a concealed

Police: ‘Good Samaritan’ shot robber who had killed man

HOUSTON (AP) — A “good Samaritan” shot and wounded an armed robber at a San Antonio mall after another man was killed while confronting two people who had just held up a jewelry store, a police spokesman said Monday.

A man who was killed trying to stop a robbery at a San Antonio, Texas, mall is being hailed as a good Samaritan, and police say they have arrested two suspects who will face murder charges.

The licensed concealed handgun holder, whose name has not been released by authorities, believed other people were in danger and was within his rights to use his gun following the Sunday robbery, said San Antonio police spokesman Officer Doug Greene. The wounded suspect was hospitalized in critical condition Monday; the second suspect, who shot and wounded two people in the Rolling Oaks Mall while running
