That’s weird? This didn’t seem to make any headlines…
After mall shooter Jacob Tyler Roberts had shot and killed two shoppers, he was confronted by a concealed carry permit holder. The next person to die was Roberts.

KGW reported:

Nick Meli is emotionally drained. The 22-year-old was at Clackamas Town Center with a friend and her baby when a masked man opened fire.

“I heard three shots and turned and looked at Casey and said, ‘are you serious?,'” he said.

The friend and baby hit the floor. Meli, who has a concealed carry permit, positioned himself behind a pillar.

“He was working on his rifle,” said Meli. “He kept pulling the charging handle and hitting the side.”

The break in gunfire allowed Meli to pull out his own gun, but he never took his eyes off the shooter.

“As I was going down to pull, I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move, and I knew if I fired and missed, I could hit them,” he said.

Meli took cover inside a nearby store. He never pulled the trigger. He stands by that decision.

“I’m not beating myself up cause I didn’t shoot him,” said Meli. “I know after he saw me, I think the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself.”

  1. It doesn’t fit the narrative.

    “Nothing to see here folks, just move along”

  2. It’s not just the liberal media anymore. Rupert Murdoch is jumping on the gun control bandwagon. Can Fox be far behind? http://au.news.yahoo.com/latest/a/-/latest/15644942/murdoch-joins-gun-control-controversy/

  3. The liberals don’t care. They want control.

  4. Be prepared for the Narrative of King O’s legacy for the next FOUR YEARS!

    I didn’t hear that on ANY of the lsm channels!

    and I always tell family to watch FOX for non biased coverage.

  5. The exception and not the rule. Take a moment to allow me to provide some context on why proper education and safety is paramount:

    ——- ““As I was going down to pull, I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move, and I knew if I fired and missed, I could hit them,” he said. ——–

    I doubt all you trigger-happy wingnuts would have the presence of mind to take into consideration those that were in the line of fire and just start squeezing off rounds.

  6. Actually airon-later you are quite wrong.

    Legal concealed carry holders actually go through training and are required to have proper safety instruction including what to do in a situation where the use of deadly force is justifiable. That includes the understanding that ensuring NO INNOCENT people are injured in the shooting of a person threatening your life and the lives of others.

    Ignorant people such are you who make statements in the total absence of facts or any basic research are just silly little gnats circling the manure that is the irresponsible media reporting.

    You are done here little troll.

  7. MOJO, thanks for the boiler-plate blatherings. I am fuly aware of what is required to obtain a conceal/carry permit. The point – which is readily apparent given the context of Right Wing posturing after every tragedy like what has happened in Conneticut – is that your overriding passion to be this gun-toting cowboy hell-bent on being a hero is more likely to take over in a situation like a mass shooting. Either that, or you’ll freeze and not do a blasted thing. It’s easy to talk like a person that would save lives, it’s another to actually follow thru with it.

    I think it’s perhaps you are the one that is done.

  8. The USA has a mental health problem, starting with our unhealthy relationships with guns (aka WMD).

  9. Ka-pow!

  10. Mums the word on actions like this. The liberals/progressives are more interested in social justice then in truth. You must understand that media feeding frenzies very seldom produce truth or facts, but they certainly produce hysteria.

  11. “I doubt all you trigger-happy wingnuts would have the presence of mind to take into consideration those that were in the line of fire and just start squeezing off rounds.”

    Don’t project your incompetence and cowardice onto others. Not everyone in the world would panic like you.

    In your case, I would suggest waiting for the police to arrive to tag the bodies…including yours.

  12. “The USA has a mental health problem, starting with our unhealthy relationships with guns (aka WMD).”

    Unlike, say, Switzerland where virtually every home is armed and the shooting sports are quite popular.

    Idiot

  13. #12 ah, wishing for my death – how “conservative” of you……..

  14. Twenty bulleted riddled children laying in the morgue would disagree with you.

  15. “wishing for my death – how “conservative” of you……..”

    Ahh, the typical inability to read for comprehension. I would explain my post to you but it would clearly go over your head. Just know that gross generalizations of the sort you prefer only demonstrate either dishonesty or stupidity.

  16. “Twenty bulleted riddled children laying in the morgue would disagree with you.”

    So you would prefer the children and their teachers were defenseless rather than deal with the real problem of de-institutionalized mentally ill in proven ways? Talk about demonstrating a divorce from reality.

  17. God Bless Nick Meli that he made the right decision!

    People need to understand that people like Nick, Military Personnel, Police Officers,…answer the call to PROTECT OTHERS, NOT THAT THEY ARE GUN NUTS!

    It is because they DO NOT WANT AS NICK SAID TO SEE AN ARMED INDIVIDUAL SHOOTING INNOCENT PEOPLE! There are a lot of people that never care to help anyone that cannot seem to understand those that do care and are willing to lose their own lives to do so!

    God Bless Nick, our Troops, our Police Officers~

  18. Yet another case where a CCP holder made a responsible decision. A CCP holder in the AZ shooting also was able to quickly determine not to use (or even draw) his sidearm.

  19. Thanks for posting. A valuable story to pass on.
