"Unarmed" Patron Stops Possible Murder/Mass Shooting

If you can get beyond the sensationalized descriptions and concentrate on what actually happened like the hero of the story, then this is a pretty neat story.

Bad guy gets thrown out of a bar earlier, comes back later dressed as "Rambo" with an Uzi-like gun and knives. One of the patrons reacted quickly upon seeing the threat and took immediate action. Shots were fired. The patron suffered some significant wounding, but not debilitating, and his friends helped out. He got slashed in the eye and hands. Nobody was injured by the gunfire. The bad guy appears to have suffered a serious beat down, apparently beat unconscious by the patrons.

The hero and his accomplices were not "armed" per se, though judging from the wounds to the bad guy, they managed to utilize some expedient blunt force weapons.

That was crazy. It kind of reminds me of the time when the guy stabbed the marine, then he "fell off a curb" lol.

Did you notice the media spin?

They call the Uzi pistol both "a machine gun" and a "military style assult rifle".

None the less, the man that jumped in and his friends are heros and should be honored
