Guns in the News- "Texas man steps between shooter and baby"

H/T to The Gun Wire

Full Story

He was sitting in his house off of Oldham Road in Bexar County, when 62-year-old Roger Clanton said he heard four gunshots.
Despite his age and his handicap (Clanton needs a cane and sometimes a wheelchair to get around), he said he did what he had to do.
Leaving his cane by his bed, Clanton said ran outside with his gun in his hand.
There he saw a woman, 20-year-old Katie Fierro, shot to death, a baby shot in the head, and a man with a gun.

"I wasn't going to let him shoot that baby again," said Clanton.
So Clanton stood between the shooter and the baby.

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
                                     -John 15:13

Read the full story.  It is worth the read... and remember Mr. Clanton and the baby- Cayden Fierro, who has survived- in your prayers.


  1. Serious "clanging" sounds when this guy walks down the sidewalk.

  2. No kidding. All I can say is I would have ended that guy with an amazing amount of speed. There is no excuse for that.
