Wednesday, a school shooting in South Dakota was stopped by a brave assistant principal. He tackled the shooter after he opened fire and shot the principal.
Thanks to the bravery, leadership and swift action of these school officials a potential tragedy was averted.
Fox News reports:
The 16-year-old student opened fire with a handgun, wounding Principal Kevin Lein in the arm following an argument.
Despite the wound, Lein got on the intercom to let the students and teachers know what had happened, assuring them he would be OK.
Meantime, a heroic assistant principal, Ryan Rollinger, had just tackled the student, holding him down along with a teacher until police arrived.
Lein is reportedly doing well after suffering a flesh wound and has been released from the hospital.
Students praised Rollinger for stopping what could have been a tragic situation.
Here’s the video report as seen on Fox and Friends
If open carry were allowed on these campuses and the school staff were trained and licensed to carry a firearm, most of these problems would disappear in the school districts.
Most of these school shooters are only doing this type of crime to make a name for themselves. Most of the shooters are useless psychopaths and wouldn’t want to encounter anyone that was armed. They would realize that they couldn’t get away with the crime because the staff has the same right to protect themselves, as well as, protect the students.
Thank God for such a brave selfless man, exactly the type we need in our schools.
There are unconfirmed reports that the shooter is a Muslim and that he was seen asking people what their religion is.
