Defensive Gun Use of the Day: LA CCW Stops Mass Shooting - The Truth About Guns

On the afternoon of 31 January, 2016, some ten ATVs were getting gas at the intersection of Claiborne and Esplanade Avenues in New Orleans, Louisiana. Richard Macklin pulled up in a white Volvo. Police said Macklin became upset; the ATV riders were blocking the gas pumps. He pulled out a firearm and opened fire, sending more than a dozen rounds into the crowd. Three were wounded.


One of the wounded was armed . . .


He drew his legally carried weapon and fired at Macklin, hitting him in the head and stopping the attack. During the initial investigation, officers concluded that the person who fired back did so in legitimate defense of self and others


.From nola.gov/nopd:

At this time, detectives believe it was an act of self-defense. He was also carrying a legal weapon, that was registered to him and that he had a concealed carry permit to carry.


While the disarmsists will see this incident and bemoan the “easy availability of guns,” it’s another example of a legal gun carrier stopping a mass shooting, which the disarmists claim never happens. Even when it does.

See little sluggers.....here is the moral of the story....if you are intent on murdering a lot of people....you need to find those special places created by democrats and gun grabbers called "Gun Free Zones." See, those are places where all the people who are normal gun owners are disarmed by the policies of the democrats and gun grabbers and will not be able to stop you as you murder lots of people.......

this moron picked a "NOT a Gun Free Zone," and encountered a "Good Guy" with a gun...who shot back and stopped the mass shooting......

Concealed Carrier Thwarts Possible Mass Shooting in NOLA


Friedman, the magistrate commissioner, found probable cause in relation to the shooting for the three counts of attempted second-degree murder as well as illegal use of a weapon, illegal carrying of a weapon and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Macklin was convicted of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in Texas in 2009, according to court records, and also has previous convictions in New Orleans for domestic abuse, battery and violations of a protective order.
