BREAKING: Good Guy with Gun Prevents Another Mass Shooting At Walmart
While the Democrats are trying to steal our gun rights away from us, an armed citizen just stopped a potential attack at another Walmart in Missouri just days after two mass shootings.
An off-duty firefighter was at a Walmart in Springfield, Missouri when he stopped a young man carrying a rifle, 100 rounds of ammo, and wearing body armor. This man had one intention entering the store that day and that was to steal, kill, and destroy.
Fortunately, the firefighter was armed and was able to prevent anything terrible from happening.
According to The Daily Wire,
"His intent was not to cause peace or comfort to anybody that was in the business," Lt. Mike Lucas with the Springfield Police Department said. "In fact, he’s lucky to be alive still to be honest."
Although it's not yet clear what the man's intent was, Lucas said, "We definitely have some crimes here."
Lucas said that there may have been a Facebook Live posted by the suspect and that law enforcement officials are conducting an investigation and looking through the suspect's social media.

The Springfield Police Department released this statement:
At approximately 4:10 p.m. Springfield Police Officers were dispatched to 3150 W. Republic Rd. to a Walmart Neighborhood Market. An armed white male in his twenties was detained by an armed off-duty fireman until officers arrived on scene and took the suspect into custody. No injuries were reported and no shots were fired. At this time, the investigation is on-going and we are working to determine his motives.
Without armed citizens, this would have been another mass shooting with who knows how many deaths and injured people.
