Only radical leftists would be upset over a man that stopped a shooting.
Memes have been flying around the internet from Democrats claiming that guns must be regulated because even the cops can’t stop shooting. Well, one man in Indiana has not only proved them wrong but did so in a way that has gun control advocates fuming.
In Greenwood, Indiana, an alleged gunman, 20, opened fire at the Greenwood Park Mall with a semi-automatic rifle. Sadly, Pedro Pineda, 56, and Rosa Mirian Rivera de Pineda, 37, were killed, and the gunfire injured two others. Police Chief James Ison said that a “good samaritan” with a gun stepped up and killed the shooter before he could injure anyone else.
Police said that 22-year-old Elisjsha Dicken, who was with his girlfriend, was “nothing short of heroic.”
“He engaged the gunman from quite a distance with a handgun and was very proficient in that, very tactically sound,” Ison said of Dicken. “And as he moved to close in on the suspect, he was also motioning for people to exit behind him.”
Dicken engaged the shooter firing ten rounds and retreated into a restroom as he was shot.
One of the reasons why leftists are furious is because Elisjsha did not have a permit to carry. The state of Indiana had just passed a constitutional carry law no longer requiring citizens to need a permit to carry a firearm in public.
Far left agitators and “journalists” like Justin Kollar were furious Elisjsha was being hailed as a hero.
“The term, ‘Good Samaritan’ came from a Bible passage of a man from Samaria who stopped on the side of the road to help a man who was injured and ignored,” wrote CBS4 traffic anchor Justin Kollar on Twitter Monday. “I cannot believe we live in a world where the term can equally apply to someone killing someone… my God.”

Gun control advocate and founder of the Democrat front group Moms Demand Action Shannon Watts also condemned the man who stopped the shooting.
“I don’t know who needs to hear this but when a 22-year-old illegally brings a loaded gun into a mall and kills a mass shooter armed with an AR-15 after he already killed three people and wounded others is not a ringing endorsement of our implementation of the Second Amendment,” Watts wrote on social media until she deleted it after being quoted by Fox News.
Lastly, the shooting was also another death knell to leftist ideology. The good samaritan ignored the Greenwood Park Mall’s rules prohibiting firearms; however, representatives praised his actions.
“We grieve for the victims of yesterday’s horrific tragedy in Greenwood. Violence has no place in this or any other community. We are grateful for the strong response of the first responders, including the heroic actions of the Good Samaritan who stopped the suspect,” a mall spokesperson said.
Only leftists would be mad at a man who no doubt saved lives.
