    Gun carrying man ends stabbing spree at Salt Lake grocery store

    i wonder if this will get national media attention beyond Drudge.

    Gun Carrying Man Ends Stabbing Spree At Salt Lake City Grocery Store

    Not many of these stories get much publicity so I figured I would share with you guys!

    It could have been so much worse...

    This is exactly the kind of story that needs to get mainstream. The situation was ended by a law-abiding citizen who simply presented his gun. No shot was fired and the violence was stopped. This is why we need to work on eliminating GFZs.

    If the national media reported these instances with the same enthusiasm they report the bad instances there wouldn't be any anti gun movement to speak of.

    This is old news, folks. It happened back in April, and was posted and discussed in April/May. However, your observation that it should have received national media coverage back then is spot-on! The media wouldn't want to give people the impression that a LAC with a handgun, actually stopped a violent assault. Not when there are so many more bad gun tales to tell.

    Pax...

    What really have been sweet would have been the hot chick saying "well, I'm going to get a gun now that I see its wise to have one"...

    At least the guy averted a stolen knife charge (he bought it 10 sec before he started stabbing folks -- a crazy man who won't be a thief)

    The suspect sounds like he needs mental health care.

    I hope everyone recovers.

    well, the knife has a 30 day warranty ... just trying to get his money's worth.

    Really, the guy was a loon. Sweet that a regular joe stopped him .. where were the police? That's right, 30 minutes away.

    As I read this I did not read the police response time. what is with the cop hate? second thought...do you really want that many of them that they are everywhere all the time?

    Happened back in late April. Click on the More link at the bottom left of the OP linked story.

    Howdy Folks!
    Actually this is an old story that somebody evidently reported as if it happened this week. It is more like several months old.
    The OP isn't to be faulted, because he likely saw this for the first time and the link gives appearance of a new story.
    Whoever originally created that link is posting an old story as if it is brand new.

    I will try to find info to learn when the actual incident took place.
    Found it as far back as April 27th. It may be older, but I am uncertain of that.

    Still, it bears repeating; a gun owner stopped a stabbing spree.
    All of that being said, it is still worth noting that an armed citizen interceded to save lives.

    Blessings,
