WAPO: 'Thank God' a Good Guy Had a Gun to End Terror Attack in Canada

The Washington Post (WaPo) published a story on October 23 expressing thanks to God that Canadian Sergeant at Arms Kevin Vickers saved an untold number of lives and further carnage in Canada’s Parliament when he drew a gun and shot and killed Michael Zehif-Bibeau–the recent Islamic convert who had shot and killed a Canadian Forces reservist and was running through Parliament trying to reach the gallery of MPs.

On October 22, Breitbart News reported that Vickers, a good guy with a gun, ended the terror attack by ending Zehif-Bibeau’s life. This point is not lost on The Washington Post, which on October 23 ran a story thanking God for Vickers and his gun. According to WaPo, “In numerous news reports, Vickers, 58, is already being held as a national hero who eyewitnesses say prevented a massacre that would have been nothing short of a national tragedy.”

The article continued:

By all accounts, the white-haired grandfather, a decorated veteran of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, kept cool amid the chaos as dozens of bullets flew in the corridors, went in his office, retrieved his weapon and with a firm hand and a steely eye shot a killer before he could kill again. Vickers, who is 6 feet 4 inches tall, then walked away, gun-in-hand, having “taken care of business,” as one news outlet put it.

After the attack, Craig Scott, who represents Toronto-Danforth, tweeted that members of Canada’s Parliament “owe their safety, even lives, to Sergeant at Arms Kevin Vickers who shot [the] attacker just outside the MPs’ caucus rooms.”

After saving lives, Vickers “called his mother to say he was safe.”
