    I thought concealed carriers only pulled their guns out when they had road rage.

    Utah is a great state, lived there 10 years and rarely felt the need to moan about the politics.
    To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will.

    Maybe we need background checks to purchase kitchen knives? Was it an assault knife? A scary color? If we could keep those evil knives off the streets people wouldn't get stabbed.

    When ever someone refers to the "mainstream media" I always think about that Chris Rock routine.

    This is one of those situations where had it not been for the GG, we could have had 21 stabbed and 10 dead. Of course the media will never admit that the good guy stopped anything that major. But whatever it may have become, the GG stopped it. Good for him.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    BUT......BUT.......but......Gun's are only used to kill people randomly. Maybe the gun was defective and wouldn't fire!

    Sometimes, ya gotta do the right thing, just 'cause it's the right thing to do.

    Sometimes ya just gotta be a good witness.

    This was one of the former.

    Good for the GG.

    It could be worse!

    It is interesting to see these responses. Given a lot of threads around here about "scenarios" and most people say "I will be a good witness but not get involved". I guess it is a good thing in this instance a CC'er that had the intestinal fortitude to get involved was nearby.

    Lotsa times I'm with the be a good witness crowd... but if you see someone stab another who has no weapon it does no harm to stop the fray until the authorities arrive. They can sort it out.

    I read through all of the comments on the website. Funny how there is not one negative comment about gun rights or concealed carry. Funny how when a story comes along like this there is very little the gun hating crowd can say.
