In a surveillance video just released, we see the tense moments when a terrorist opens fire on patrons at the La Casa Nostra restaurant during the horrific attacks in Paris a few days ago. Five people died at this location.
At 35 seconds into the above video, the terrorist points his gun at a woman who is hiding under what appears to be a table. He wants nothing more than to execute her in that moment.
But the gun jams, and the woman gets up and is able to run away.
At this point, the terrorist is now out of the game, even if just for a moment. Had an armed citizen been right there… who knows. Sure it’s speculation, but I like the odds a lot better when there’s a good guy with a gun.
