True Stories — February/March 2021 | USCCA Blog

A downtown Salt Lake City nightclub was the scene of a harrowing experience for all concerned. It started when a man left the club at about 1:30 a.m. and returned with a pistol, which he pointed at guests and then fired into the air. A club employee quickly retrieved his own pistol from his car and fatally shot the man. The scene intensified when other patrons who had fled the bar when the shooting started retrieved their own pistols and fired rounds into the air. Fortunately, responding police were able to take control of the situation without being forced to employ their own weapons — although two men were arrested during the investigation for interfering with police.

Wow, that’s a crazy story. They’re all noteworthy but I couldn’t help but reread that MT story of the woman being saved from her domestic partner. How quick did that individual react to save her life? Think about that, you can beat somebody senseless with a loaded pistol pretty quick, so to react and save her life is pretty amazing. It’s also noteworthy that many of those circumstances included 2 or more assailants.

Bear spray would have worked just as well in every case. With far less risk to innocent bystanders.
