TUCSON, Arizona - An unidentified woman confronted the gunman who shot 20 people, including a U.S. congresswoman, as he attempted to reload, and tore the magazine of bullets from his hand to stop the rampage, authorities said.

The woman was wounded in the struggle but there would have been "a huge, greater catastrophe had he been successful," said Pima County sheriff Clarence Dupnik.

The gunman had already fired a full clip of 31 bullets from a Glock 9mm handgun into a crowd of people who had gathered in a shopping mall parking lot to meet Representative Gabrielle Giffords.

Dupnik said that after the woman tore the ammunition magazine from the gunman's hand, he pulled out another and succeeded in reloading the weapon.

"Fortunately, the spring in the magazine failed, and the two gentlemen were able to get it away from him and subdue him until the law enforcement people arrived," Dupnik said

how much do you want to bet the MSM says she has a very liberal amount of courage, and if she acted conservatively things could have gone worse

They said that she was wounded but didn't elaborate ?
