Stock - Gun with bulletsWhere’s the mainstream media on this one? Oh, it doesn’t fit their anti-gun narrative, got it.

Here we have yet another example of an armed individual stopping a mass shooter. Surprisingly, this happened in one of the hipster capitols of the US, Portland, OR.

According to KGW, a man entered the Mystic Gentleman’s Club in Portland, OR and opened fire.

Three people, including a security guard were hit by gunfire. It’s entirely possible that far more people could have been shot, however the shooter did not suspect that he would encounter an armed citizen.

An armed bystander drew a firearm and opened fire on the gunman, hitting and disabling him.

All four injured people, including the shooter, survived the incident. The gunman and the security guard are both in critical condition. The other two victims were treated and released for non life threatening injuries.

According to media reports, detectives say that the shooting was not gang related and there are no other suspects. This leads us to believe this was a lone gunman committing a mass shooting. He was stopped by a good guy with a gun.

According to KGW,

“Portland is a safe city; however, gun violence is pervasive. As we’ve seen elsewhere, it’s really easy for someone with a gun to hurt a lot of people,” said Sgt. Greg Stewart with the Portland Police Bureau.
