But Civilians With Guns NEVER Save ANYONE!

They are a danger – take the guns away!

A man was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries early Sunday morning after a shooting broke out at a Glendale house party, authorities said.

Glendale police officers responded about 1:30 a.m. to a house near 51st and Olive avenues where they found a 27-year-old man who had been shot, Glendale Police Department spokeswoman Officer Tracey Breeden said. He was treated at the scene and taken to the hospital, where he remained Sunday afternoon.

Investigators determined an argument started between individuals at the party and the 27-year-old, and he was asked to leave, she said. The man left for a short time, then returned with a rifle and began firing off rounds outside the house.

The man pointed the rifle at partygoers and a 39-year-old partygoer pulled out a handgun and shot the 27 year old before police arrived, Breeden said. The shooter did not try to leave and waited for officers to arrive.

The shooter has been cooperative with investigators, she said. He was questioned and released by detectives.

“This is standard procedure under these type of circumstances,” Breeden said. “Information and evidence detectives have gathered leads them to believe the 27-year-old was not only firing his rifle, endangering partygoers, but also pointed the weapon at other partygoers, endangering them, prior to the 39-year-old displaying a weapon and shooting the 27-year-old.”

The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending, Breeden said.

  1. This is a perfect example of why everyone should be allowed to carry. Only one person sustained any injuries and the police showed up to document the incident. Like I said PUURFECT !!!

  2. What Zinger3006 said: a textbook example of how it’s supposed to work. That is, assuming the textbook was written before the NEA & the Progressive Party rewrote history.

  3. I love stories with a happy ending…
    Another case of, “Better to have and not need, than need and not have.”

  5. My version of KM’s saying is “You don’t need a pistol, until you need a pistol and then you need it BAD!”
