Good story, but several months old.

Kudos! With 40-50M more like him around the country, we'd see a lot more of this sort of thing ending well. If only the reticent/unaware would actively participate in the "hardening" of ourselves against crime, we'd go a long way toward saving thousands of lives. If only.
I thought that everyone who carries a gun, carry just to protect themselves and there family. Im glad to see someone stand up and be an asset to society.....Good for him...
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......
How did this get into a newspaper?!?!?! They do not print this stuff... Nice to see once again that WE type people are a benefit not a "liability" to society.

Drudge is a few months late. This happened in April

Just posted today on MSN.com. Why whould they post something "months old"?

Will this make the 6:00 primetime news?

Nice that they said be bought the knife and then turned it into a weapon.
Somebody forgot to inform the gunman that he was a liability.
Drudge posted this link this morning. Looks like nbcnews picked up the link, then they later pulled the link, likely when they realized it was from April. Anyone see this story on any national news source in April? Let's review. A man walked into a grocery store, bought a knife, "turned it into a weapon," then started stabbing people before he could even leave the store. That wasn't national news.
Now, re-word that a bit. A man walked into a gun store, bought a gun, "turned it into a weapon," then started shooting people before he could even leave the store.
They virtually banned guns in Belgium over a similar incident in 2006. Oh, and if you recall that story, in 2009 a man in Belgium went on a stabbing spree in a day care wearing a bullet proof vest, an axe, a knife, and a fake gun. Oh and the irony. He too had psychotic fantasies of being the Joker. That this Utah story didn't make the news in April is a national news story in and of itself. That this story isn't entering the national debate today after it was posted on Drudge is another national story.
He yelled "you killed my people you killed my people." I'm still curious just who his people are. Funny they didn't mention that. I can't even find a story where this thug is even named.
I found the follow up story from May:
