An armed woman in San Antonio shot a shooter in a movie theater before he could carry out his planned execution of a girlfriend who recently dumped him. Apparently only two people were wounded by the shooter before the shooter was shot, disarmed, and handcuffed.
This has is an important news story that I have not seen widely discussed in the popular news media. The major reason the news media is not interested is probably because an armed off-duty sheriff deputy shot the shooter using her concealed weapon in a movie theater that was a “gun free zone.” No “assault weapon” was involved. It is embarrassing to the Left that an armed citizen probably prevented one or more murders by shooting the madman.
On Sunday, December 16, 2012 a man entered a movie theater in San Antonio, Texas for the sole purpose of killing his ex-girlfriend, because she had broke up with him. The gunman, 19 year old Jesus Manuel Garcia, apparently did not complete his task. He opened fire in the theater which caused mass panic. People were running for cover and rushing towards exits, according to police and witnesses.
At least two people were wounded in the shooting.
So why was there not widespread news footage covering this event? The shooter was stopped. The Santikos Mayan Palace 14 Movie Theater also houses a small restaurant. The shooting began in the restaurant and as people went for cover, Garcia began to fire outside at an unmarked police car. He then moved to the theater where off duty Bexar County Sheriff Officer, Sgt. Lisa Castellano, who was working the theater, chased Garcia to the back of the theater and cornered him in the men’s room, shooting him several times and taking his gun.
Detective Louis Antu, spokesman for the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, said, “She took all appropriate action to keep everyone safe in the movie theater.”
Armed Citizens defending themselves and others does not fit Obama’s agenda of progressively disarming the American people. Obama said on Sunday when he spoke on NBC “Meet the Press,”
“I am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools,” Obama said. “And I think the vast majority of the American people are skeptical that that somehow is going to solve our problem.”
President Obama is surrounded by dozens, and often hundreds, of heavily armed people. Many are armed with fully automatic weapons. If Obama thinks armed people in schools would not protect students, why does Obama not write an Executive Order to decrease the number of guns protecting the President of the United States? Obama is not about to declare the White House and the President of the United States to be “gun free zones” because Obama is fully aware of the value of armed protection.
Obama wants to be protected with guns. This protection is logical and indicated. Accordingly, school children and the American people should also be entitled to armed protection
