    A 75 year old vet used his old training to save a room full of kids from a man armed with two knives.
    First, kudos from him for remembering and acting on his old training, and for putting himself in
    harms way to save the kids.

    Second, this should show the gun grabbers that you cannot stop these type of attacks by removing guns.
    These people will resort to knives or bombs or who knows whatever means to continue attacks.

    Kudo's to the old guy for taking a stand.

    I'm super glad this guy and those kids are ok.

    One of these days, with the way things keep going, someone who actually knows how to use a large knife is going to go duel wielding thru a "no gun zone" and rack up a horrible body count.

    Then they will be after our dinner knives....

    Instead of this example proving that violent resistance is the only defense against a lone madman hell bent on murder, the antis will spin it and say "see, everyone in that room would have been killed had this guy had access to guns", which is partially true but it ignores the fact that even with a gun, a shooters body count is drastically diminished when he encounters violent resistance.

    And no violent resistance is as effective as good guys who know how to effectively handle firearms and carry them everywhere. But their twisted logic says disarming good people make bad people less dangerous.

    From the article, quote from the attacker:
    So yeah, that vet saved a lot of lives.
