Off-duty Officer with Concealed Handgun stops Utah Mall Shooting
Aposhian noted that it is impossible to know whether a concealed-weapon holder could make a difference in every violent confrontation.
"But we do know what happens when there is no one with a concealed weapon in these situations - people die."
Aposhian spent Monday fielding telephone calls from individuals and groups seeking information on concealed-weapons permits. . . .
Of course, this argument applies to letting others as well defend themselves.
There is a real concern in my mind that this may be the beginning of more terrorist attacks. There was the attack last year in Seattle. At first glance, this is starting to look like a pattern.
People close to the family of Sulejman Talovic say the Bosnian immigrant was only four when he and his mother fled their village on foot after it was overrun by Serbian forces. They say Talovic spent five years living as a refugee in Bosnia before his family moved to the U-S.
During his time as a refugee, they say he spent time in an enclave where up to eight-thousand Muslim men and boys would be slaughtered in 1995.
Talovic left before the massacre, but acquaintances say it may have left a mark on him.
A family friend says he's convinced "the war did this in Utah." . . .
This last story is one of many that fails to note that it was an off-duty officer who stopped the attack.
