Woman with pistol stops felon with rifle

Dennis Butler – Shooter killed by armed citizen

It all started when 37-year-old Dennis Butler started racing around outside Vista View apartments in Charleston, West Virginia.

People attending a graduation party and a birthday party, pointed at kids playing and asked him to slow down. That’s not an unreasonable request and his response proves we have a mental health issue way more than a gun safety issue.

Butler was pissed off and went away but returned with an AR-15 style rifle (what Libs call an assault weapon) and started shooting at the crowd.

Immediately, a woman pulled out her pistol and shot him dead.

“This lady was carrying a lawful firearm,” the police said. “A law abiding citizen who stopped the threat of probably 20 or 30 people getting killed. She engaged the threat and stopped it. She didn’t run from the threat, she engaged it. Preventing a mass casualty event here in Charleston.”

Of course, it transpires that Butler has an extensive criminal history. In 2016, he was accused of shooting and pistol whipping a 19-year-old woman, but those charges were dismissed because no witnesses testified at a pretrial hearing.

Court records showed Butler had been convicted of two felonies in the past, so he should have not had a gun.

Let’s salute this lady who prevented a mass shooting and will never get the recognition she deserves because nothing about this story aligns with the current media narrative of guns or skin tone.

Elon noticed though!
