Good guy with AR-15 stops knife attack

OSWEGO, Ill. -- A man armed with an AR-15 rifle helped stop a knife attack during an argument in Oswego.

It happened on Monday at an apartment building on Harbor Drive.

Police say it all began when someone with a knife attacked another person during an argument.

Neighbor Dave Thomas, who witnessed the attack, went into his home, got his rifle and ordered the suspect to stop.

1. Liberal logic tells us that it would have been much better to take this mans gun, let the attack

continue until police finally arrived 3 to 12 minutes later. It's only a knife, what harm can possibly be done with a knife LOL.

2. And the gun owner did not use the incident to wantonly kill another human being.

3. Good for this gun owner.

Sooo, is this something he couldn't have done with a hand gun?

4. Which is the more intimidating to the attacker?

Also, go with what you got, not what you wished you had.

Hair spliting is so productive.

5. What does that have to do with anything?

Lefty is trying to ban handguns too.
