Adams calls the armed civilian a hero.

"He is a hero," Adams said. "He took action. I really think more people could have been shot... he saved us all."
Pro 2a point of view: Good guy with gun stopped bad guy with gun.
Anti-2a point of view: Vigilante shoots valet parking attendant outside Walmart

Near as I can tell there were three armed customers after this guy.

Love the quote from one of this BG's victims.

“I thanked him for saving my life,” Berwick said of the attempted carjacking victim who shot the suspect. “He didn’t look like he had any regrets. I hope he doesn’t have any.”

Hmm. Will this have an effect on robberies in Walmart's?

I suspect they will rob stores with anti gun signs.

Aaaaannnd a bit more: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/armed-civi ... tor-medic/
The civilian who killed the gunman is a pastor who works with the Oakville Fire Department, where he is a lieutenant and an emergency medical technician, KIRO-TV reports.

After the incident, the man who shot Day retrieved a first-aid kit from his car and provided aid to the driver who had been shot until medics arrived, police said. Officials said Monday that the driver remains in critical condition at a Seattle hospital.
The video accompanying the linked article says the man who was wounded at the Walmart is paralyzed from the neck down. How awful.

Walmart ever release the surveillance video of that incident--both inside the store and outside in the parking lot?

John Correia of the Active Self Protection YT channel did a review of the incident. So the WM footage is now out.
I hope this is the right one:

Another story on this: https://americanhandgunner.com/our-expe ... -incident/

Good read. But took me forever to find this thread. It should be in the Self-Defense forum.
