A Schnucks employee went berserk and stabbed seven of his co-workers, before being stopped by a Good Samaritan who pulled a Glock out of his truck and ordered the attacker to stop. We know many people will argue this is a convincing argument against gun control, and in this case a bystander with a licensed handgun did come in mighty handy.

No, we really can't.
