Garland Good Guys With Guns

posted on May 5, 2015

When two armed men attempted to attack those gathered in Garland, Texas, for a contest for the best cartoon of Muhammad on Saturday, fast work by local police officers brought the situation to a quick, efficient end.

According to media reports, as the art contest was ending, the two men drove up to the Curtis Culwell Center and shot a security guard there. But before the alleged terrorists could harm those in the building, Garland Police Department officers shot and killed them both.

The attempted terrorist incident represents a stark contrast to the January attack on the Charlie Hebdo headquarters in Paris, France—launched because that magazine published cartoons of Muhammad. If you’ll recall, attackers there were initially met by unarmed police, and went on to kill 12 people before escaping the scene unharmed.
