    USA Today has a long article. They even talk about the debate over guns on campus. They have statements from witnesses. Not one mention of the student deterring him with the gun.

    I appalled at the poor use of grammar by UT students.

    This is an unconfirmed report. More or less it's all based on a tweet that was sent out that has since been removed.

    As much as I would like for this to be true I am withholding judgement. I want more facts.

    That will probably not happen. The MSM will not report the truth and if was true, whoever reports it will be shouted down by the MSM. All those college kids and not a single video of the incident or the conceal carry intervener? That's odd to me.

    No local news at all here in TX mentions a guy with a gun intervention. Plenty of the police chief saying the perp was mental and not motivated by hate or meanness.

    Unfortunately the mainstream media is so crooked, so dishonest, and so anxious to promote their communist agenda of disarmament that I really believe that they would suppress a story like this even if they knew it to be true.

    Does that mean it is true? Of course not!

    It means I don't know.
    And that's a damned shame.

    the guy may have removed the tweet to protect himself. even if a mwag stopped the attack, there are potentially folks standing by to punish him for doing so. governments and those that support them subsidize the risk of criminals, not the behavior of heroes.

    cops say there's around 25 witnesses and lots of video, so we will know soon enough

    Isn't that the point of owning a firearm? Perhaps they are expecting gun owners to buy a gun and then throw it in a shoebox in their closet where they forget about it until someone's kid visiting the house finds and shoots themselves while the news goes crazy with stories about accidental discharges.

    Wait! I'm supposed to carry this thing WITH ammo in it!?! All the time?!? Now wait a minute, nobody told me that when I bought it. I got it empty, was told to load it only safely and at the range. Carrying it loaded seems unsafe. I'm feeling a bit nervous now. Where are those crayons? :panic:
