    Student Disarmed University Gunman; 1 Killed, 3 Injured

    When a lone gunman armed with a shotgun at a small Seattle university stopped firing at students to reload, another student pepper-sprayed him and subdued him with the help of others and prevented more deaths, police said."There are a number of heroes in this," Assistant Police Chief Paul McDonagh said. "The people around (the gunman) stepped up."
    A 19-year-old man was fatally shot and two other young people were wounded after the gunman entered the foyer at Otto Miller Hall on the Seattle Pacific University campus and started shooting Thursday afternoon. When he paused to reload, a student building monitor disarmed him. The gunman had additional rounds and a knife, McDonagh said.

    Quick action by the student with the pepper spray, and the support of other students around him, saved lives. No doubt about it.

    Maybe we're getting away from that crowd mentality that causes us to wait for someone else to do something. I hope so.

    I think it's like the people on the plane during the 9-11 attack that knew what was happening and took action to stop it. There have been so many of these shootings lately that people are aware and pissed off and are fighting back.

    Yep, a willingness to fight back, to have prepared (thought about such events ahead of time), ability to keep your head instead of panicking....all the best possible tools.

    Predictable. No, the person had another tool to suit that person's need - pepper-spray. Stop focusing on the tool and more 'better outcomes' happen.

    Then tell the NRA to stop saying that we all need to be armed.

    When did they ever say that for us to suggest they stop saying that?

    I carry pepper-spray and a stun gun because I cannot carry a gun in the may-issue state that is Maryland.

    According to Opencarry.org, in Washington state "Colleges set their own policies, most of which seem to ban lawfully carried guns. South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia is the only college in this state we know of that does not specifically ban lawfully carried guns from their campus."

    Perhaps this hero would have carried more than pepper-spray if he could have, perhaps if he did he would not have had to wait for this murderer to reload if he did have a gun and a life could have been saved.

    Haymarket's "support" of the 2nd Amendment, a right he believes we never had.

    I'm glad this man was stop before he would inflict more damage, but as long school stay "gun-free" they are going to be big soft targets for these sick people.

    Blaming laws for the actions of ****ed up people is really the same as blaming guns it seems to me.
