As Twitchy has told you, a gunman at a restaurant in Oklahoma City was killed by a pair of armed citizens in the parking lot after the man had already wounded two people inside.
"This story out of Oklahoma City is just more evidence to just how important guns are in the hands of law-abiding people, and more importantly, trained individuals—people willing to step up and confront evil." —@stinchfield1776 #NRA pic.twitter.com/2SwbXC3eR5

The above tweet from the NRA about the situation last night didn’t sit well with Moms Demand Action’s Shannon Watts, who wasn’t impressed in the least:
The gunman was shot in the parking lot AFTER he shot his intended victims: a woman and her daughter.
The @NRA’s new slogan: “The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun after he’s already shot his intended victims is a good guy with a gun – or the police. Whoever shows up first.” https://t.co/VQI8HBuO93

Is Watts now saying that people who have the ability to take action during such violence should just assume a shooter is finished shooting? But rest assured, plenty of Watts’ followers agreed with her and even slammed the men who took down the shooter.
