Here’s a story about the mass murder that didn’t happen at San Antonio’s Santikos Mayan Palace 14 theater.

Upset over his girlfriend breaking up with him, model-citizen-not-to-be-named-here sent her a message telling her he would go to the restaurant where he worked and “shoot somebody.”

According to Bexar County sheriff’s Sgt. Raymond Pollard: “[not-named-here] went inside, chased people out the back door, and followed one employee as he ran toward the theater, apparently because he was the easiest target.”

Ron Borsch, manager of the SEALE Academy and longtime police trainer and member of Bedford, Ohio Police Department, has been compiling mass murder data for over a decade. He noted that these killers want to quickly inflict maximum damage, so they select places where they expect the least resistance, like “gun-free zones” (e.g. schools, business banning concealed carry).

Unfortunately for no-name, Bexar County sheriff’s Sgt. Lisa Castellano was working off-duty as a security guard at the theater. After no-name wounded two people, shooting one in the back, Sgt. Castellano “cornered him after he ran into a men’s restroom, shooting him several times and taking his gun.”

Both two victims seem to be physically safe, the back-shot victim being quickly released from the hospital.

Bleeding heart media wasted no time blaming the gun:

A restaurant employee who asked not to be identified said such an attack was out of character for Garcia, known as “Chuy” to coworkers.

“He’s a good kid and not violent. He’s quiet and minds his own business,” the coworker said. “I have nothing bad to say about him.”

The police don’t agree. The shooter “was charged with attempted capital murder of a police officer and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to arrest records. His bail was set at a combined $1 million.”

Former civilian disarmament supporter and medical researcher Howard Nemerov investigates the civil liberty of self-defense and examines the issue of gun control, resulting in his book Four Hundred Years of Gun Control: Why Isn’t It Working? He appears frequently on NRA News as their “unofficial” analyst and was published in the Texas Review of Law and Politics with David Kopel and Carlisle Moody.
