Legal Firearm Wielded by Local Citizen Ended Church Shooting [VIDEO]

When law enforcement found the killer, the threat was already stopped, thanks to a legal firearm owner.

A local citizen with a legal firearm stopped the church shooter in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Not only that, but a good Samaritan driving by let the armed citizen get in his truck and then engaged in a high-speed chase in pursuit of the mass shooter who fled the scene in his vehicle. After the killer ran off the road, the local armed citizen kept his firearm trained on the shooter until the police arrived.

This is how the Second Amendment was designed to work! And if more people carried concealed handguns, perhaps the shooter could have been stopped before he killed anyone.

“Our local citizen pursued the suspect at that time,” Martin went on. “A short time later as law enforcement responded that suspect right at the Wilson/Guadalupe County line crashed out and was found deceased in his vehicle.
