“A heroic student charged at the Oregon college shooter and was shot five times as he tried to save his classmates,” dailymail.co.uk reports. “Army veteran Chris Mintz, 30, was taken to hospital following the massacre at Umpqua Community College on Thursday morning. His cousin Derek Bourgeois told DailyMail.com that Mintz faced Chris Harper-Mercer, 26, who killed at least 10 people at the school in Roseburg.” Mintz is expected to recover from his wounds, including two broken/damaged legs. It’s not known if he was armed on the “gun free” campus. But another vet was . . .
The vet – identified only as “John” – told breitbart.com that he was carrying a firearm on campus in a building about 200 yards from the shooter. Although he says he was trained to run towards danger, in this case, he did not. John “sheltered in place” until the police responded, some eight minutes after the first 911 call. When asked why he was carrying in a “gun free zone,” John responded “It’s not my responsibility to make sure everybody knows the law of the land.”
