Armed concealed carrier stops a stabbing in front of schoolAugust 30, 2012 4:47 pm
There are folks who act on good impulses, and there are folks who act on bad impulses …knives and guns are merely tools. In this case, the victim was a 38-year-old mother who was dropping off a child at school, running into an apparently disgruntled husband. The husband was armed with a knife, who proceeded to use it on the mother. The NBC affiliate out of San Antonio, TX, WOAI.com, has the story:
The attack happened around 10:00 a.m. Tuesday outside the Bonham Academy on St. Mary’s Street. Teresa Barron, 38, had just dropped off her child at the school when the child’s father showed up, and the two got into an argument. The child’s father, 38-year-old Roberto Barron allegedly then stabbed the woman several times in the upper body and neck area.”
Police say a bystander who happened to be a concealed handgun license holder pulled his weapon and ordered Barron to drop the knife. Barron surrendered and was taken into custody by the bystander and a school district officer.At the end of the day, all three people lived because a good person was carrying a gun, while the bad person was carrying a knife.
The woman was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center.
Barron was arrested for aggravated assault, and is in jail on a $150,000 bond.”
Y'all have a good 'un.
