In a free country that allows citizens to keep and bear arms for self-defense, there will be mass shootings and similar gun-related tragedies. But the ability to protect oneself with a gun far outweighs any misuse by people like the mass murderer in Texas, who reportedly killed himself after killing at least 26 people attending church on Sunday.
An unidentified armed citizen shot and wounded murderer Devin Kelley, who fled in a vehicle. The man who shot the murderer and a man who witnessed the exchange decided to pursue Kelley.
“The shooter got in his truck, the gentlemen with the rifle came to my truck as the shooter took off, and he briefed me quickly on what had just happened and said we had to get him, so that’s what I did,” Johnnie Langendorff said.
The murderer lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a ditch.
