    Several other stories here also where the good guys with a gun stopped similar incidents.

    An argument that escalated into gunfire could have turned deadly for the 20 people who were eating at a Vietnamese restaurant in Houston Sunday night if not for the actions of an armed patron.

    Two men were involved in a disturbance at the Mien Tay Quan when one broke away and retrieved a gun from his vehicle. He came back to the eatery and began shooting from outside the building, shattering windows and putting patrons in grave danger.


    Luckily, Anthony Yet, an investigator for the Harris County prosecutor’s office, was having dinner at Mien Tay Quan while all of this was happening.


    Yet fired his service weapon at the shooter, killing him.

    According to KHOU, Yet has been a certified peace officer since 1992. He has worked in the Harris County prosecutor’s office since 2013.

    Several similar incidents have occurred in Houston in recent months. Last month, an armed patron at a seafood restaurant was described as “amazing” after he opened fire on two armed robbers. Also last month, a Houston-based rapper fatally shot an attacker during an attempted car-jacking and home invasion.

    In an incident shortly before New Year’s Eve, an armed robber attempted to rip off a Houston-area fireworks stand. The clerk on duty shot the assailant, who was airlifted to a hospital.


    And last year, a Marine Corps veteran intervened after he saw two masked men leaving a Houston-area video game store. The veteran raised his pistol at one of the assailants and asked a bystander to call 911. After the assailant raised his gun and aimed it, the veteran fatally shot him.

    Mainstream media outlets do their best to sweep the good shootings under the rug. Sharing these stories is one of our most powerful weapons in this battle.
    Thank you, sir.

    Providing testament to the importance of an armed public.
    I don't think it's a stretch to say that a gun control law may have been to blame for at least some of the casualties at Luby's. We know that at least one person (Suzanna Hupp) would have been armed (she actually reached for her weapon) but for the outlawing of concealed carry in public places.

    Yes, but just think if everybody turned there guns in we would not have these shooting. The USA would be a safe and peaceful place. We could live without fear and no need for the police to protect us from evil guns and people.

    Actually the law was against carrying in restaurants, not public places.

    You are correct. I could waste my time arguing semantics, but yes, there is a difference.
    I mis-remembered, which is fine. I mis-spoke, which is not.

    black dog I really hope you're joking about that comment you made. that might get the idiots with legit guns off of the street but that doesn't mean that the hardened criminals with illegal weapons are going and that leavES them the only ones with guns. that is not a world I think I would fancy...
