Update to the story via FNC website:
A security guard at the Family Research Council's headquarters in Washington, D.C. is being hailed as a hero after he stopped a gunman posing as an intern, taking a bullet in the arm before wrestling the suspect to the ground.
The gunman entered the lobby of the organization's Chinatown headquarters around 10:45 and expressed disagreement with the conservative group's policy positions, Fox News has learned. When the guard, who was not identified, asked him where he was going, he opened fire, according to police.
“The security guard here is a hero, as far as I’m concerned,” D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said. ”He did his job. The person never made it past the front.”

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

"Wrestling him to the ground?" Why didn't he make a huge blowhole in his forehead?Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

He might not have been armed. It costs more to hire security guards who are trained to use firearms on the job. One of our security guards explained it to me once, that her company offered two different levels of security coverage-unarmed for most office buildings, and armed, for banks and armored trucks. She was working on her CCW and the other training required to do armed security, because she would make more money that way.
This guy deserves a raise, at the least.

The guard's name is Leo Johnson.
Well done, good and faithful servant.
I think people should send cards of thanks to him via FRC.
