After the horrific shooting in Pittsburgh, it’s a relief to be able to point to a Huck’s Hero in Alabama who prevented untold deaths by stopping an attempted mass shooting.  

The unidentified dad was leaving a McDonald’s in Birmingham with his teenage sons when a masked man entered and started firing.  Fortunately, the dad had a concealed weapon, which he quickly unconcealed and fired back.  The dad and one of his sons suffered injuries but will recover; however, the gunman later died.  McDonald’s worker Markus Washington ran and hid in the freezer when he heard all the shots.  He told WBRC-TV that he was imagining everyone dead and the shooter coming to look for him.  He said about the dad, “He’s my hero. Because I can only imagine how it would’ve went if he wasn’t armed.”

Those who think disarming the law-abiding is the answer to mass shootings, and who are shamelessly politicizing the deaths in Pittsburgh to promote that agenda, refuse to acknowledge that the “good guy with a gun” scenario exists or claim it’s extremely rare.  They ignore the many cases where simply showing a gun prevents a crime from happening, so it's not reported as a crime or shooting.  And they never seem to grasp that maybe the reason it’s rare for a good guy with a gun to stop a mass shooting is because their misguided faith in “gun-free zones” insures there won’t be any good guys with guns nearby when a shooter picks one of those places as his target.
