A Hero’s gun

I’ve covered the Tyler, Texas shooting before. You can get some background here. The long and short of it is that David Hernandez Arroyo, Sr. loaded up with body armor and guns, then killed his wife. As Arroyo attempted to shoot his son, a local CCW holder named Mark Wilson intervened and was killed. Mr. Wilson saved the life of Arroyo’s son and perhaps many others.

Reader Robert obtained access and took some photos. Here is a picture of Mr. Wilson’s Colt:

Below the fold are pictures of Arroyo’s MAK.

A villain’s gun:

That ding on the receiver is a bullet mark. Arroyo’s left little finger was shot off as well. Arroyo had a 40 round magazine and a hunting rifle in his truck.

    Hmmm,

    Its worth pointing out that this goblin was able to go on a terror spree with a AWB approved rifle. I thought the AWB was supposed to prevent these kind of things from happening. How could this have occurred????

    Yeah, I noticed – just didn’t want to politicize it. Figured someone else would point it out and i was right.

    Not to make light of the situation (which you all know means I’m going to), but I can’t get the phrase from “A Fistful of Dollars” out of my head: “When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle … the man with the pistol will be a dead man.”

    Of course, it shows that there is no such thing as a “good” gun or or a “bad” gun– only the moral stripes of the people who use them.

  5. Kristopher Says:

    Keep a truck gun … even a beat up Mosin-Nagant is better than a .45 pistol.

  6. Les Jones Says:

    As I recall Wilson was inside the courthouse when he heard the shots. Probably no time to go the car for a rifle. It’s a good idea to have one in the car, but the pistol on you is more important.
