    Default Mass shooting stopped by good guy with a gun?

    I honestly think a lot of potential mass shootings are stopped by good guys with guns. We never hear about them because they weren’t mass shootings by definition since they were stopped.

    this story has a situation where the cops say there was a good chance the guy was going to cause a lot of damage. And was stopped before he had the chance.

    Deputies credit armed employee with stopping potential mass shooting at bar
    NEWNAN, Ga. (FOX 5 Atlanta)
    - Deputies in Coweta County say an armed off-duty employee may have stopped a mass shooting at a crowded bar in Newnan Saturday morning.

    FOX 5 News has the exclusive surveillance video of the shooting outside Fat Boys Bar and Grill on Highway 16. Deputies say that video shows Kevintez Mathewis on his way into the bar with a handgun when Ben McCoy confronts him and is shot multiple times. He drew the gunman's attention and then drew his fire.

    Deputies say the security footage also shows Mathewis being ejected from the bar and earlier when security there had confronted him numerous times about his behavior Saturday morning.

    Mathewis is seen on video repeatedly trying to get back into the bar and repeatedly security turning him away. Deputies say McCoy became concerned by Mathewis' warnings that he was going to return and shoot up the bar. They say this video shows McCoy placing a small-caliber rifle in from the back of his SUV into the back seat.

    It appears that McCoy shouts to him and Mathewis is then seen opening fire.

    Another camera angle shows Mathewis pursuing McCoy and firing continuously with his handgun even after McCoy is down. Deputies say he then grabs McCoy's rifle and runs away.

    Deputies say Kevintez Mathewis is 27-years-old. He was later tracked down by police K-9 and arrested. Deputies have charged him with aggravated assault.

    Ben McCoy was shot four to six times. They are not exactly sure of the exact number. He has undergone surgery at Atlanta Medical Center.

    And deputies credit McCoy with stopping what could have been a mass shooting inside the bar.

    So they charged the shooter?

    It’s a confusing article that I did not read as completely as I should have. The guy who was going to shoot up the bar and shot the good guy with a gun was charged. The good guy with the gun risked his life and distracted the shooter. As far as I can tell he did not shoot the criminal.

    The Media largely does not report what they normally define as a "mass shooting" when it is inner city, Black on Black violence. Four or more people shot is typically their mass shooting definition. They did occasionally call the recent Philly cop shootings a "mass shooting", but that quickly subsided because it didn't fit the Media Narrative of a white guy (promoted by them as right wing) shooter.

    Somebody threw a bunch of words up in the air and that's how they landed.

    Worst article yet.

    It was a dark and not stormy night, the kind of dark that is really dark like the inside of a cow at midnight with no moon...
