    Man w/gun stops knife attack

    A citizen with a gun stopped a knife wielding man as he began stabbing people Thursday evening at the downtown Salt Lake City Smith's store.

    Although it is really sad that people had to get hurt like that, I am truly glad that the man was there to do what he did. I am glad on more than just saving those peoples lives, but also for the public outlook on people that carry. Unfortunately...I do not think this will make national news...even tho it should. Ultimately tho...I thank god that man was there. I cant wait to move to Utah and hopefully get to meet more like minded folks.

    The knife guy seems like he has a couple of screws loose. And the police? They were almost there? About 20 minutes away.

    This story is an excellent example of the need for law abiding citizens to go armed for their own protection and the protection of others. While the armed citizen has not been identified (as far as I know), he showed remarkable poise and only met force on force as needed. KUDOs Citizen. The only thing that would make this story better (for me) would be to learn the armed citizen who intervened had been one of my students.

    Race card?

    I don't recall "playing the race card"... other than mentioning the man doing the stabbing is Vietnamese, as was reported in the media. I didn't know that stating the country of a perpetrator's origin would be "playing the race card. How PC must we be to avoid being censored now?

    It is not about being PC - it is about posting responsibly and within the forum rules.

    Sorry, Grapeshot, but I don't see where forum rules 6 or 9 applied. Could you please direct me to the correct rule? Pax...
