What? A gun actually saved a life?Armed bystander stops stabbing outside school
Reported by: Jozannah Quintanilla
SAN ANTONIO - A woman is in critical condition after she was stabbed outside her child's school Tuesday morning.
The attack happened around 10:00 a.m. Tuesday outside the Bonham Academy on St. Mary's Street. Teresa Barron, 38, had just dropped off her child at the school when the child's father showed up, and the two got into an argument. The child's father, 38-year-old Roberto Barron allegedly then stabbed the woman several times in the upper body and neck area.
Police say a bystander who happened to be a concealed handgun license holder pulled his weapon and ordered Barron to drop the knife. Barron surrendered and was taken into custody by the bystander and a school district officer.
The woman was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center.
Barron was arrested for aggravated assault, and is in jail on a $150,000 bond.
I'm sure the criminal liberal media will run with this story.....
great post by the o.p. its unfortunate for the lady and i hope she makes a speedy recovery. as a concealed carry holder stories like these are awesome to hear...
Isolated incidents of "good guy with gun beats bad guy" does not mean much in a country with the most gun violence, by far, out of any other modern, westernized nation.
And for the record, it's not this dude's pistol or conceal permit I'm worried about. I don't know how this guy's story makes you think you need an AR-15.
The guns are already out there. Its not like a a gun is a persishable commodity in that a gun made in 1930 works just as well made last week. The anti gun argument would be practical if there weren't already MILLIONS of guns in the US. The overwhelming majority of F/A related crimes are committed by unlicensed people.
My job would be 10x easier (and safer) if there were no guns out there but I have the ability to grasp reality. Yes the access of guns to the bad guys is a major problem. However you don't solve it by enacting tougher laws and restrictions on law abiding citizens in hopes of affecting criminals who don't obey any law.
