Issues & Views: Guns Save Lives
- You would think that a man who saved three people's lives, at considerable risk to his own, would be recognized as a hero. But his story would be politically incorrect, so it has received virtually no media attention and his name remains unknown.It all started when a gunman took three hostages at a San Mateo, California, shooting range. He had left a note announcing his intention to kill hostages and then himself, so this was worse than even the usual hostage situation. At this point, an anonymous employee of the shooting range took one of the guns on the premises and shot the gunman, freeing the hostages.
