Not only did he do the right thing...he was able to keep a cool head, and was a heck of a shot.

Seriously. If that distance is anything like correct, it would have to be a record for handgun shooting in an active shooter situation.

I wish someone could explain what a Magnum Assault handgun is. This is the first time I have ever heard of an assault handgun of any kind.

Allow me. That would have to be a .44 magnum because that's what Dirty Harry "assaulted" criminals with in the movies, and that's where anti's get all of there firearm education. Right? Oh, wait. He also battered a few bad guys with it. Wouldn't you call it a magnum battery handgun? Or, to be technically correct, a magnum assault and battery handgun.

Next, the anti's will be calling a .45 ACP a "45 Assault Carry Pistol".

Why did Free start this thread? This act goes against his personal agenda. Legal gun owners don't only deter crime they stop it dead in it's tracks.

Sheriff Grubbs also noted that some may take this incident as an opportunity to promote gun control; however he felt it is an example of importance of the right to bear arms.

“Had this citizen not had a gun, this could have been a whole lot worse,” said Grubbs.

My guess is that this will not make it anywhere into the mainstream media..

Kudos to this man and the police officer for standing up ..
