These types of stories have been headlined in the news a lot lately. Good guy with a gun takes out a bad guy with a gun. Hats off to this retired military sniper. Yes, he is a total bad ass.

Well, dang. I am usually one to check for veracity; but, I bit on the "newspaper" name. My apologies.

Thanks, A-T.
