The tragedy in Poway, California

"The combat veteran who stopped the Poway, California, synagogue shooter—the same guy who called every other white person a coward in his evil manifesto—used a command voice, profanity, and a mean mug to send the gunman running but he believes it requires something more than that to stop multiple-victim public shootings. The 51-year-old veteran tells The Daily Caller, “It takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun.”--Dan Flynn"

"Stewart said he chased him all the way out to his car, and began pounding on it — the shooter had managed to lock himself in. When Stewart saw him reach for a rifle, he punched the side of the car as hard as he could, intending to figure out a way to drag him out of the car — that’s when a Border Patrol agent who attends the synagogue came running out to the parking lot, yelling for Stewart to get down because he had a gun.

Stewart says this man may have saved his life, and pointed to his use of a civilian gun — he was off-duty and was apparently handed the weapon by someone else on the scene — as evidence that gun control isn’t the answer to these kinds of tragedies. “It takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun,” he told the [Daily] Caller."
