Today a School Security officer, “engaged” an armed school shooter at Great Mills High School, in southeast Maryland. This action taken by 34 year old Blaine Gaskill of St. Mary’s County, saved lives today!
St. Mary’s County Sheriff Tim Cameron, said that: “a male student (now identified as 17 year old Austin Wyatt Rollins) fired at a female student in a hallway, also hitting a male student. An armed school resources officer (Blaine Gaskill) arrived at the scene, exchanging shots with the gunman.”
Gaskill is a Sheriff Deputy who fired at least one shot at the attacker, which caused the rampage to abruptly end.
It is still unclear if the shooter took his own life or if the bullet by Gaskill ended the perpetrators life. Either way, Gaskill’s engagement completely threw the assailant off his game plan to harm innocent people.
Here’s to GOOD GUYS and GALS WITH GUNS! Because you know what, the ONLY WAY to
stop a bad guy with a gun, IS GOOD guy with a Gun! To not have schools ARMED, is NUTS!!! Every time you get on a plane there is a good guy with a gun on that plane. Every time you go to a concert, there is a good guy with a gun at that concert. Every time you go to a professional sporting event there is a good guy with a gun at that sporting event. WHY…..seriously WHY, do we not have armed security in EVERY single school in this country!??
Sitting ducks can not defend themselves!!! And these mass shootings tend to happen in “Gun Free Zones!” I say get rid of Gun Free Zones- THEY DO NOT WORK! They literally are invitations to kill people that can’t fight back.
Thank you Blaine Gaskill, a true hero that saved LIVES today.
