Police say the man then made his way out an emergency exit where a former firefighter held the man at gunpoint.
Ive often wondered when this mythical “Good Guy With A Gun” would show up and stop the bad guy.

Obviously the former firefighter did exactly the right thing by apprehending him when he tried to leave (and presumably disarmed him, too), but it's maybe worth pointing out that, had Andreychenko been a serious terrorist rather than a would-be YouTube social experimenter, the presence of good guy with a gun would not, of course, have been much help to the people inside the store at the time.

Yeah, the guy apparently had no intention to actually shoot up the place. He just wanted to show off his penis 🍆

AUGH

Just had a YUGE argument with someone claiming that the left were the ones pushing the mental health issue. Not the trumpists.

I have to tell this occasionally to people who portray the Sutherland Springs church massacre as having been "stopped by a good guy with a gun". It wasn't; the shooter had finished the attack and left the church, and was getting back into his vehicle when the guy with the gun showed up and confronted him.

The shooting in Dayton lasted one full minute. That's all it took. Unless the Gud Guy with a Gun is already aiming at the attacker, it will always be too late.

Mass shooting averted at Norway mosque

The suspect has not been named, but police have described him as a "young white man".

The mosque's director told local media that the victim was a 75-year-old member of the congregation.

"One of our members has been shot by a white man with a helmet and uniform," Irfan Mushtaq told local newspaper Budstikka.

He later told local channel TV2 that the attacker had "carried two shotgun-like weapons and a pistol. He broke through a glass door and fired shots."

The gunman, who wore body armour, was overpowered by people at the mosque before police arrived at the scene, Mr Mushtaq added.

Oslo Police confirmed the attack on Twitter, saying: "One person is shot. The severity of that person's injuries is unknown. One suspect is arrested".

Honestly.

I think that we should listen to experts who have been telling us that these guys are now trying to outdo each other (get a higher body count). Of course we will have those who get caught because they announce it to the world a la this cretin, but somewhere a smarter (in the evil, planning sense) terrorist is remaining quiet as he amasses his military weapon supply and plans.

Making threats about not going to Walmart, walking into a Walmart loaded up with weaponry is one way of achieving the fear and terror that they desire.

Meanwhile, our current regime goes about denying their existence, covering up their existence and attempting to name anti-fascists (using antifa interchangeably with "leftists" as terrorists), not to mention the language used to incite these nutcase nazis even further.

A dating app designed for arranging threesomes has been described as a “privacy train wreck” by security experts after the software was found to reveal real-time locations, birth dates, chat data and even photographs of its 1.5 million users.

The app, 3fun, revealed users with locations appearing to be in No 10 in London, and the White House and the US Supreme Court in Washington DC, according to a report on cyber security firm Pen Test Partners’ website.

The guy was released from prison early on licence (parole) but was recalled for breaking the conditions of his licence. He's gone missing, and the police issued a request for information about his whereabouts, which included a mugshot.

This went viral because of his weird hairstyle and the police are now threatening people with prosecution for harassment if they don't stop mocking it on social media.

Strictly speaking they're correct -- piling on people like that on social media is illegal here, and it's doubtless a good thing to remind users of that fact --- but I honestly can't see any prosecutions getting very far in this particular case!

I knew people who got haircuts like that as a dare.

If course, large quantities of alcohol were involved.

It's going to get a lot harder for legal immigrants to be allowed in the country and get green cards:


Not only will those who cannot financially support themselves be denied entry, but those who USCIS "predict" may need to rely on public assistance any time in the future - to include Medicaid and food stamps - will be denied entry as well.
