Who would have thought that a good guy with a gun is the best defense against a bad guy with a gun?
LYMAN, SC– Jody Ray Thompson, 32, of 15 Lake Vista Drive, has been charged with four counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
Shots rang out at the Playoffz nightclub at 105 B Little Mountain Road before 3:30 a.m. Sunday, according to an incident report from the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies believe Thompson got into an argument with another man and began firing into a crowd of people outside the club, Lt. Kevin Bobo, a Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, said in an email.
Three people were shot. Another man who was shot at returned fire with his own handgun and struck Thompson in the leg, he said.
He acted in self-defense and has a concealed weapons permit, so he’s not being charged, Bobo said.
Of course you’re supposed to say that you never want to see someone get hurt. I’m sorry, I can’t help but feel all warm inside whenever I hear about a good guy with a gun using it to take out a bad guy with a gun.
It happens more than you would think, but don’t count on hearing anything about it from major news outlets.
