Father Hailed as Hero After Fatally Shooting Gunman at Alabama McDonald’s

Tue, 10/30/2018 - 08:23

An Alabama man is being hailed as a hero after he used his concealed firearm to stop a masked gunman at a McDonald's in southwest Birmingham. The suspect entered the restaurant on Saturday night around 10:45pm just after it had closed, according to local media. He gained access by entering just as an employee was unlocking the door for a father and his two sons to leave. The suspect opened fire as soon as he entered, but the father drew his own concealed weapon and returned fire.

Jews Speak Out on Guns and Pittsburgh

Tue, 10/30/2018 - 07:57

Jews are often hoplophobic or otherwise reluctant to bear arms, leading to deadly results.

Wed, 10/24/2018 - 08:41
