Forget the nameless ass-wipe who murdered several innocent people at Umpqua Community College and instead, remember the military veteran hero who helped save countless lives. Chris Mintz was shot seven times while charging the gunman and saving others.
Originally from Randleman, North Carolina, Mintz served 10 years in the U.S. Army. After leaving the service, he moved to Oregon to find work and enroll at the community college.
His cousin reports that he’s expected to recover: “From what I’m hearing, he’s fine,” the cousin said. “But he’s going to have to learn to walk again.”
Meanwhile, I have friends, both here in the U.S. and abroad, who are tossing out meaningless statistics about International verses U.S. gun violence. These are the same people who agree with President Obama, who stated: “We are all collectively responsible for gun shootings.”
What a bunch of Social-progressive hogwash! There was only one finger on the trigger that morning and it wasn’t mine or yours.
So, thank you Chris Mintz, not only for your service, but also for showing us that freedom isn’t free and that there are still heroes in this world willing to stand-up, armed or otherwise, push back against evil when it shows its ugly head.
