    "Visit our Legislation Page to learn how you can call on your elected officials to work with us to keep guns off our streets and out of the hands of our youth."

    I heard the guy was 45....so much for the youth.

    March has been a real bloody month and 2A...in the eyes of the general public...has taken a beating. I fear, with the downturn in good times, such carnage will only continue.

    Yeh, I wondered why they used that "out of the hands of our youth" statement. Playing on people's emotions? Canned statement???

    Maybe we should take a page from the current administration's playbook: turn every crisis into an opportunity. Actually, mass murders like these, if they occur in gun-free zones, are good opportunities to point out to people the powerlessness and futility of such signs and zones.

    And if they don't occur in gun-free zones, but no one was there who was armed and could stop it, it could still be argued a concealed carrier in the right place could have saved lives.

    That's probably what is happening at the national level by those more eloquent than I. But I think such points are good for the man-in-the-street discussions with those we come in contact with.

    I heard on Fox the the Officer went in after the shooter, got in a gunfight with him and both were shot. Stopped the killing thought. The officer is a hero having done exactly what needed to be done in an active shooter situation. The sooner the shooter is brought down, the sooner the killing stops.

    I just read it on Fox. The ages of those he killed were 78, 78, 88, 88, 98, and one nurse whose age was not given.

    What a coward.

    What a hero, the officer who entered and got into a gunbattle with the coward, stopping him.

    Nowhere is immune. With each and every "surprise" occurrence at a new, untested/untried place, we must disabuse ourselves of the naive notion that there are any safe places. Go armed. Always.

    Well said, I could not agree more.

    What a trajedy. What a shame. You know, it's already hard enough, emotionally, to be in the position of having to put a loved one in a nursing home. I had to put my mother in one. But, by the grace of God, I got lucky and married a lady who thought it proper that we bring her home to live with us. She's here now, thank the Lord. And when I think, of how, those poor, helpless victims, and the others, who had to watch the carnage, had absolutely no one to defend them. It breaks my heart. Folks, there are family members in desperate need of our prayers, right now.

    horrible, kudos to Officer Garner for taking this guy down, getting shot 3 times himself in the process.

    The shooting spree was ended by 25-year-old Officer Justin Garner, who entered the nursing home alone as he responded to a 911 call. McKenzie said Garner, a training officer with more than four years on the Carthage force and a past winner of the department's officer of the year award, knew he was headed into a perilous situation, but didn't wait for back-up or a SWAT team to arrive.

    "If that's not heroism, I don't know what is," McKenzie said

    "He had to go to all the way through the facility to encounter this individual," McKenzie said. "It would be hard for me to believe he didn't (hear gunfire)."

    Stewart wounded Garner three times in the leg as they traded gunfire in a hallway of the 110-bed facility, McKenzie said. The single shot Garner fired from his .40-caliber service pistol hit Stewart in the chest.

    "Whether he realizes it now, he will hopefully realize someday how many lives he has saved," McKenzie said, adding: "A lot more lives would have been lost, I honestly feel, had he not done what he did. For certain."
    this story could have been just as easily about a CCW'er taking this guy out....and should have been.
    Fox just said Garner was the only officer on duty at the time! Imagine if he'd not got there or was incapacitated himself....how many more would have died.

    Shot placement rules. One to the chest beats 3 to the legs.

    Officer Garner is a hero. Wonder if any officers from other departments were called in. You would thing so.

    The cop is being hailed as a hero, as he should be.
    I just wonder if they'd call him a hero if he was an average Joe with a ccw permit..I think the media would stop short of calling him a hero...
    Prepare for the worst and hope it never happens
