Private gun carriers, saving lives without a badge

Mainstream media ignored the fact that a concealed carry permit holder was on hand during the Portland, OR shooting.

There was a crazy person shooting at the Clackamas Town Center in early December, 2012. He got off three shots, killing two people.

Nick Meli heard the shots and took cover. The 22-year old pulled out his own gun and never took his eyes off the shooter. He did everything right. He didn’t have a clear shot and he didn’t pull the trigger.

The shooter killed himself.

A Portland new station reported this information, however, it didn’t receive mainstream attention because someone carrying a gun for good doesn’t fit the narrative.

If Nick Meli had shot the criminal who opened fire at the Portland mall, he could have been arrested for harming another person. It would have cost him a minimum of $50,000, and yet, he pulled his weapon to save other lives, without thinking about himself and the consequences.
