As Twitchy reported, it was not just one but two armed citizens who confronted and killed a man who had opened fire inside an Oklahoma City restaurant Thursday night, injuring three.

We were ready for the spin against the “good guy with a gun” narrative, and it came quickly. Moms Demand founder Shannon Watts, for example,  noted that the gunman was shot in the parking lot after he had shot his victims. Guess he just should have been allowed to walk away, then?

Now it’s Saturday, and she’s still trying to downplay the “good guy with a gun” angle. We agree with her that the men were not average citizens … they bravely went above and beyond.

And her point is?

Sounds like she’s arguing for more armed security guards.

How is this different from millions of other civilian Americans who decide to carry concealed? Because most civilian gun owners how no idea what they’re doing, apparently.

OK, so this story doesn’t count because one of the heroes was a former police officer and the other a member of the National Guard? They were still exercising their right to carry.

And if you’re worried about “amateurs” having proper training on firearms use and safety, why not join the NRA?
