HEY, ANTI-GUN IDIOTS: Off-duty soldier with handgun saved 100 lives as Muslim terrorists ran amok in Kenyan Mall

A former marine emerged as a hero of the Nairobi siege yesterday after he was credited with saving up to 100 lives.

The ex soldier was having coffee at the Westgate mall when it was attacked by Islamists on Saturday.

With a gun tucked into his waistband, he was pictured helping two women from the complex.

His story emerged as sporadic gunfire continued to ring out from inside the mall early today as Kenyan security forces battled Al Qaeda-linked terrorists into a fourth day.

Despite Kenyan police assurances that they had taken control of the building, a security expert with contacts inside the mall said at least 10 hostages were still being held by a band of attackers, possibly as many as 13.

The former soldier is said to have returned to the building on a dozen occasions, despite intense gunfire.

A friend in Nairobi said: ‘What he did was so heroic. He was having coffee with friends when it happened.

‘He went back in 12 times and saved 100 people. Imagine going back in when you knew what was going on inside.’

      Well, that, and these are his brethren and they were just having church Muslim style. I heard that a big part of what happened in Rome, the bizarre behavior and crumbling of the empire was party because they drank wine from lead goblets, and lead, if there is enough of it in the body causes insanity. I would like to thank the Marine here for driving some muslims crazy.

      • sandraleesmith46

        Not just insanity, a thing called plumbism or lead encephalopathy, with all manner of interesting effects. Insanity is but one of them. It’s the root of the expression “plum crazy”.

    What made the difference and why this situation is important to Americans is that he “was armed” to at least have a chance to defend himself and his rescued survivors. Although guys like this would probably go in to do what he could regardless, had he not had a weapon on him, the results may have been different and one more added to the dead in spite of his selflessness to save others.

    The story makes it seem as though he did not fire his gun once. If this is the case, then no the fetishized gun did nothing in this instance to save anyone. What did save those people was the bravery of this man who went in and led people out to safety.

      Really? You think he would have been so brave to go back in time and time again if he hadn’t had a weapon to protect himself if he needed too? You are a moron!

      • Sanity

        Oh, so it is the gun that gives the Marines their bravery now is it?

        POINT: 100 lives saved? How many shots fired?

    • Bulldog74

      Right…because as we all know, there’s no deterrent factor unless the person actually fires the weapon. No wonder liberals always wet their pants at the very thought of a gun.
      I don’t know about you, but if I see someone who’s armed and determined I’m a lot more likely to give him a wide berth than if he’s unarmed and hoping no one notices.

      I think the term, “former active duty Marine” would probably be more accurate. There are no ex-Marines for sure. An ex-Marine was never a Marine to begin with.

    owning and carrying a gun can change a good person into a better person when the situations present themselves. Having a weapon levels the playing field amongst all men – regardless of physical condition or age.

    Carrying a weapon and being willing to come to the aid of your fellow neighbors and countrymen is part of the responsibility that is assumed when you are licensed (IMHO)

    That attitude of selfless sacrifice in the face of certain danger, is what the government fears the most. That potential that there are real heroes waiting to be created when the time comes.

    This was the UN’s false flag event, just like the Connecticut shooting was ours. The UN is pushing hard for its SAT/ATT to be passed, and this regime is all for it. Owevomit and Kerry already said they look forward to signing it, Reid is drooling at the mouth to be able to sign his freaking name to the thing. I’m telling you folks, if they get this past our so called representatives, the time for talking will be over and done with, it’ll be time for lead to fly.

    A comment was made that we should all know who this young Marine was that saved so many lives. If he wanted to be known he would have made it so. Leave the guy alone because he may work for someone or some entity that he needs to keep his identity confidential. Why does everyone want this information in the first place? To make you feel all fuzzy inside to know who this is? Leave the guy alone!

    • larrygrant876

      Thank you Steve for such a statement here in American Idol land where no one understands the character of unsung heroes who merely do what is right because it’s right and prefer to stay out of the limelight. The one’s who need the attention and limelight are the ones on American Idol and such. I hope Obama knows that the heroes will be there in full force without asking permission when he finally pushes our patience too far, and, I think it is closer than he thinks it is.

    No, The young man wasn’t a Marine, He was SAS, British Special Air Service, But You can bet the gun was loaded and ready, Not like on U.S. Bases where the liberals have disarmed the MP, and any guns that are visible are not loaded.
    Yes, a Good Man with a gun saving lives from Evil Muslim Terrorist with loaded guns and murdering people in cold blood in the name of their blood soaked religion.

    Please explain how a score or more trained terrorists armed with powerful weapons failed to take out one man who entered many times and also failed to take out any of the people he was escorting. Also, if the reporter or reporters who tallied up the ~50 trips and ~100 persons saved would make up a published report the whole story would be a little more believable.

  • Marine1

    I don’t read that the handgun had anything to do with his brave actions. How many terrorists did he shoot exactly? Thus, you are drawing the wrong conclusion. The fact is
    that had he gone head to head against an AK or the like – he would have
    lost. If you are such a fear-freak that you have to run around with your
    little guns tucked in your belt (read pansy Zimmermann) you better hope that the
    other person does not have a semi-automatic rifle – and, despite the bombast,
    the only thing Obama is trying to limit is the size of the magazines.
    Yes, I am a Marine combat vet; No, I don’t need to carry a weapon to feel secure.
