Hero With Concealed Carry Firearm Prevents Mass Shooting in SC

The shooter was identified on Monday morning. "Thompson was still on the scene when deputies arrived, but the initial scene was chaotic," Bobo reported. "It wasn't until victims and witnesses were interviewed, and video from the scene was reviewed that Thompson was identified as the suspect."

Thankfully, none of the victims' injuries were life threatening.

While Democrats pushed for more gun control measures following the Orlando shooting at a gay nightclub earlier this month, large numbers of gay and lesbian Americans purchased firearms to protect themselves. With more widespread gun ownership, more would-be mass shootings can end like the events in Lyman, with zero casualties.
