A good guy with a gun, the ones that Democrats want to insist do not exist and do not save anyone, saved the day.
It happened on Thursday when a man with 100 rounds of ammunition and wearing body armor entered a Missouri Walmart.
It was then that the Springfield, Missouri Police Department got a call of an active shooter at the Walmart Neighborhood Market, The New York Times reported.
A man with a loaded rifle and 100 rounds of ammunition walked into a Walmart in Springfield, Mo., on Thursday afternoon, alarming shoppers before he was detained by an armed off-duty firefighter and arrested by the police, according to the authorities and local news media.
No shots were fired, and it was not clear what the man, who is in his 20s and whose name was not immediately released, was planning to do inside the store, Lt. Mike Lucas of the Springfield Police Department said.
“His intent obviously was to cause chaos here, and he did that,” Lucas said of the man. “We are working to determine his motives.”
“His intent was not to cause peace or comfort to anybody that was in the business here,” he said to The Springfield News-Leader. “In fact, he’s lucky he’s alive still, to be honest.
“Nobody was harmed, thankfully,” he said. “Just a really scary, dangerous situation that thankfully got resolved, and everyone’s going home tonight.”
But the news that none of the news is reporting is what the Springfield, Missouri Police Department shared on its Facebook page.
“At approximately 4:10 p.m. Springfield Police Officers were dispatched to 3150 W. Republic Rd. to a Walmart Neighborhood Market.
“An armed white male in his twenties was detained by an armed off-duty fireman until officers arrived on scene and took the suspect into custody.
“No injuries were reported and no shots were fired. At this time, the investigation is on-going and we are working to determine his motives.
“Any person that was present during this incident and did not speak to a police officer, please contact the Springfield Police Department to file a report and provide further information at (417) 864-1810,” it said.
