Authorities say a woman in West Virginia fatally shot a man who began firing an AR-15-style rifle into a crowd of people at a party


Dennis Butler, 37, was killed Wednesday night after he pulled out the rifle and began shooting at dozens of people attending the birthday-graduation party outside an apartment complex in the city of Charleston, police said in a statement.

The woman, who was attending the party, drew a pistol and fired, killing Butler, the statement said. No one at the party was injured.

“Instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night,” Chief of Detectives Tony Hazelett told news outlets Thursday.

After fatally shooting Butler, the woman waited along with several witnesses for police to arrive, and all have cooperated with the investigation, authorities said.


AR-15-style rifle.

Sound familiar?

Go ahead, mock. But, if one of the Uvalde teachers was packing?, would those 21 victims be dead?

I'll guess MSNBC didn't report this.

    There is a lot to this story that you haven't reported. For example, how did the man obtain the AR-15? Would he have been able to purchase it had minimal background checks been enforced?

    As for the woman who shot him, so she attends a party where presumably she and others would be consuming alcoholic beverages. Do you really think it's a good idea to bring a gun to a party under those conditions?

    Will you now be advising your friends to bring a gun when they attend parties? Maybe you'll specify that one of the party goers should be the designated shooter.

    Curt,

    I'm not advising anyone anything but I do know that the Utopia your ilk vaguely envisions will require the repealing of the Second Amendment and the confiscation of all weapons possessed by free citizens and the probability of that ain't grand.

    Of course you advised people bring guns to parties. You just didn't think I through.

    I didn't advocate or even think we should repeal the 2nd Amendment. However that doesn't mean we are powerless to address the problem. For example, gun safes reduce unintentional gun deaths of children by about 25 percent. That would spare the lives of hundreds of kids.

    I'm not advising, merely suggesting an alternative paradigm.

    "I'm not advising, merely suggesting an alternative paradigm." --HtS

    A paradigm is an example. You are suggesting that bringing a gun to a party is somehow an example worth considering and emulating. Your "suggestion" or Ted Cruz's suggestion of schools with only one door, or the other NRA sanctioned nonsense doesn't stand up to the slightest scrutiny.

    I redirect you to "Arming teachers is a stupid idea that won't reduce the rate of kids killed by guns."
