This is one reason we need nationwide constitutional carry! Thank you to both citizens who stepped up to save the trooper and end the threat.

Nothing but a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun that is why millions of us have and carry guns. We hope we will never have to use them to stop evil, We KNOW we will never use them in anger. We will shoot you if you try to take them because you are evil.

If liberal Democrats had their way, gun confiscation would rule the day and this officer would be dead.

in Kansas if an officer is in pearl or asks for help by law you are required to assist in any way the officer asks or that you can if you are able bodied..for example (hey help me get this guy cuffed he's starting to overpower me) or (I been shot get the med kit from the back of the cruiser and radio for help)..

The guy that attacked the trooper probably caused the woman's death, she might have been saved if the troopers wasn't interrupted in the middle of doing his job

This is why cops should always support the law abiding being armed.

What would have happened if the man that saved that trooper was a felon and was carrying a firearm illegally?

I wish every gun grabbing lefty could open their eyes. This troopers life was saved by an armed civilian end of story. The only thing that stops an armed bad guy is an armed good guy.

This is why the U.S. needs guns. It's too late to ban them because the damage has already been done. Bad guys with guns will always require good guys with guns. I'm from Sweden and we don't have a gun culture like the U.S. does. The only two groups in our country that have guns are hunters with licenses and criminals. The entire point of being a law abiding citizen is to do what the law tells you. The entire point of being a criminal is to not give two sh*ts about what the law tells you. That's why the bad guys will be the only ones with guns if you implement a gun ban or strict gun control.

It only makes sense, if the bad guys have guns so should the good guys, in my country(canada) only the bad guys have them and they get nothing in terms of jail!

Hmm I saw this video now and saw the same one only the one that saved the trooper was a motorist and he pulled his own gun so I'm confused

Wait a minute, the Good Samaritan is driving on his way to California with a gun in his car? He better turn around or stay in Arizona because in all seriousness that is a crime in California and he will be arrested. If the gun is not on the California approved list, and/or it has a 10+ round magazine, he is really in trouble.

Got to love this story. Hopefully AZ troopers give both these good Samaritans free lifetime driving 'free passes' although they'd probably not need them.

Proof that bad guys will have guns regardless of gun policy or not, one only has to look in Japan to see that gun control does not work, the bad guys will only use knives which are even more devastating.

Right There Is A Perfect Example of Why Law Abiding Citizens Should Not Have Guns.       NOT
Krondarr (1 month ago)
This is a perfect reason for the 2nd amendment. A law abiding citizen supporting our brothers and sisters in uniform in their time of need. That, you gun grabbing liberals, is what what the founding fathers put it in there for. Argue against that. I dare you.🙂

Wow, if that happened here in California there would be riots against the CHP and that good samaritan and a $100 trillion lawsuit awarded to the dead man's family...
Rowrin (1 month ago)
If that happened in California, the samaritan would be arrested and charge with a felony punishable by up to 10 years in jail for having a loaded firearm in his truck. California requires you to transport firearms and ammo in separate, locked containers inaccessible to the driver (glove box doesn't count). Trooper would be dead, samaritan would be in jail, and the suspect would somehow be the victim of police brutality and have a settlement with the state. xD

You younger people probably don't recognize the fact that this has happened before...way back in the day. The reasons society became so safe is because people like this weeded out the bad ones, then we elected police to maintain that. We're back to killing weeds again.

And this day and age the mainstream media like this new station is vilifying cops when an African American person is shot by the cops the first words out of their mouth is unarmed black man shot by the cops which emotionally charges the African American Community to hate the cops this is why cops are being targeted and it's really hard for any law enforcement to keep good officers because they don't get the recognition that they need so you can blame this news station and other mainstream media anytime a white person a brown person 8 yellow person a red person get shot by the cops they give a long detailed message like the person's name the persons age and a brief description of what happened but they don't say anything about their color only when a black man gets shot by the cops Chicago 2018 3000 people shot 500 dead mostly black on black crime where is the mainstream media on this

And some ppl want to ban firearms..imagine if the civilian wasn’t allowed to carry a firearm, it could’ve potentially been 3 dead(the trooper and two civs), and the assailant could’ve gotten away. Outlaw guns and the only people with guns will be the outlaws..
