Five little stones

The MSM kept insisting that the armed woman who stopped the church shooter in Colorado was a security guard. They just can't stand it when someone without a uniform and a badge uses a gun in justifiable self defense.

But then bloggers like Call Me Ahab uncovered the truth. The woman was a member of the congregation who had armed herself and volunteered to provide security.

Security Guard: 'God Guided Me And Protected Me' (via Shooting the Messenger):
"There was chaos," Assam said, as parishioners ran away, "I will never forget the gunshots. They were so loud."

"I saw him coming through the doors" and took cover, Assam said. "I came out of cover and identified myself and engaged him and took him down."

"God was with me," Assam said. "I didn't think for a minute to run away."
So we have a woman armed only with a handgun taking down a monster armed with a rifle.

And the giant came tumbling down.


  1. I wonder if the media has this as an institutional policy because they sure are consistent.

  2. Interesting...I'm glad she was there and that there seemed to be some sort of warning that something might happen. It is frightening to think what might have happened otherwise.

    Principled Discovery

  3. She rose to the level of her training and he defaulted to the lack thereof of his. A determined experienced shooter can stop a man with a bazooka with only a .22. Sometime remind me to tell ya'll about the time some Montanyards had us pinned down with crossbows.

  4. Ahab is so right about the media and its agenda. Heaven forbid, that some besides a police officer or rent a cop uses a gun in defense of us poor helpless sheep. It just makes my eyes bleed with frustration.
