    Good Guy With Gun Stops Potential Attack At Walmart After Man Shows Up With Rifle, Body Armor

    Quote Originally Posted by Chlodovech


    An off-duty firefighter who had a firearm with him stopped a potential attack from taking place at a Walmart in Missouri after a 20-year-old man showed up to the store with a rifle, body armor, and over 100 rounds of ammunition.

    "His intent was not to cause peace or comfort to anybody that was in the business," Lt. Mike Lucas with the Springfield Police Department said. "In fact, he’s lucky to be alive still to be honest."

    Although it's not yet clear what the man's intent was, Lucas said, "We definitely have some crimes here."

    Lucas said that there may have been a Facebook Live posted by the suspect and that law enforcement officials are conducting an investigation and looking through the suspect's social media.

    KOLR news anchor tweeted "20-year-old man with rifle, handgun & body armor arrested at Walmart on Republic. SFD Police say he had 100+ rounds of ammunition. Off-duty firefighter with concealed carry gun held him at gunpoint until officers arrived about 3 minutes later"

    The Springfield Police Department released this statement:

    "At approximately 4:10 p.m. Springfield Police Officers were dispatched to 3150 W. Republic Rd. to a Walmart Neighborhood Market. An armed white male in his twenties was detained by an armed off-duty fireman until officers arrived on scene and took the suspect into custody. No injuries were reported and no shots were fired. At this time, the investigation is on-going and we are working to determine his motives."

    The incident comes after a white supremacist terrorist massacred nearly two dozen people in a domestic terror attack at a Walmart in El Paso last Saturday in which the terrorist targeted Latinos.

    The tragedy has ignited the latest round of calls for gun control from the media and Democrat Party, demanding an "assault weapons ban" and more "background checks."

    An independent study commissioned by Justice Department’s National Institute of Justice (NIJ) found that the 1994 Clinton assault weapons ban did not reduce violence, and a recent report from CNN noted that changes to background check regulations would not have stopped the tragedy.

    This news story is not being reported honestly it seems. I can find few actual descriptions, but not from any type of news agency. The general story seems to be that the man was angry that Walmart raised the age limit on firearms purchases and that you can open carry a weapon into the store with no issues. Walmart's age limit is 21 and the guy who got arrested is 20.

    So the timeline is that he exercised his open carry rights into the Walmart, was in the store for some time for shopping. Checked out and then was put under "citizen arrest" by the fireman after exiting the store.

    And checking, it seems there is no age restriction on open carry in Missouri:

    And btw he has a Russian name. Here is a relevant social media complaint:

    Here is the mugshot:

    So as of right now, it would seem the fireman was in error but the news is spinning it as if the kid had done something wrong. The kid may have done something in bad taste, but still legal.

    Although concealed carry is not restricted in any Walmart where concealed carry is legal, some stores have prohibited open carry. That is their right. Even if I don't agree with it. I don't know if this was one of these stores.

    If this kid was minding his own business and the Walmart was not posted as a No Open Carry, the fireman was wrong.
