Whad’dya know…a good guy with a gun…..

“A former marine [UK] emerged as a hero of the Nairobi siege yesterday after he was credited with saving up to 100 lives.

The ex soldier was having coffee at the Westgate mall when it was attacked by Islamists on Saturday.

With a gun tucked into his waistband, he was pictured helping two women from the complex.

His story emerged as sporadic gunfire continued to ring out from inside the mall early today as Kenyan security forces battled Al Qaeda-linked terrorists into a fourth day.

Despite Kenyan police assurances that they had taken control of the building, a security expert with contacts inside the mall said at least 10 hostages were still being held by a band of attackers, possibly as many as 13.”

  1. I support the right of private businesses to ask/compel gun owners not to carry on their premises [open carry obviously]; and we have the ability and right to comply or take our business elsewhere. Government faciltities is going to always be a bridge too far.

    But writ large, you're correct. 'Gun free zones' will forever be a magnet for the gunman looking for easy prey.
