A shooting at a church in Tennessee yesterday left one person dead and multiple others wounded:

Anti-gun activist Shannon Watts reacted predictably:

Is that so? Well, there’s just one element to the story that makes Watts’ kneejerk reaction look moronic (again):
A concealed carry holder kept the shooter, an immigrant from Sudan, at bay until police arrived. https://t.co/QA7r9o4keT

The gunman was stopped by a fast acting member of the congregation who retrieved his own gun from his vehicle. https://t.co/MXQs51pN5N

Nice talking point, gun grabbers, but it’s another narrative “fail”:

One church member, 22-year-old Caleb Engle, confronted the shooter before being pistol whipped in the face. Engle then went to his car to retrieve a gun, which he has under a concealed carry license.
Engle returned to the church to confront the gunman again. The gunman shot himself in the face when the man returned, possibly by accident.
Another day, another blame backfire for Watts.
If you had your way more innocent people would have died, dumbass. https://t.co/r1IKtA3SAf

The same ignorant talking point.
This time she ignores the fact that children were protected by a good guy with a gun. https://t.co/9Kek5VMHy7
