Nick Meli never shot his gun out of fear of hitting a bystander, but apparently seeing him with his gun was enough for the shooter at Clackamas Mall earlier this month to turn the gun on himself and commit suicide:

KGW — Nick Meli is emotionally drained. The 22-year-old was at Clackamas Town Center with a friend and her baby when a masked man opened fire.

“I heard three shots and turned and looked at Casey and said, ‘are you serious?,'” he said.

The friend and baby hit the floor. Meli, who has a concealed carry permit, positioned himself behind a pillar.

“He was working on his rifle,” said Meli. “He kept pulling the charging handle and hitting the side.”

The break in gunfire allowed Meli to pull out his own gun, but he never took his eyes off the shooter.

“As I was going down to pull, I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move, and I knew if I fired and missed, I could hit them,” he said.

Meli took cover inside a nearby store. He never pulled the trigger. He stands by that decision.

“I’m not beating myself up cause I didn’t shoot him,” said Meli. “I know after he saw me, I think the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself.”

The gunman was dead, but not before taking two innocent lives with him and taking the innocence of everyone else.

“I don’t ever want to see anyone that way ever,” said Meli. “It just bothers me.”

More guns do save lives. Send this to all the libs you know ASAP!

    I’m surprised that Oregon allows concealed carry.

    BTW, is there a typo? I’m not getting this: “I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move” What’s a Charlotte?

    • JeffWRidge

      I think he is referring to the “Charlotte Russe” store which is a chain of clothing stores.

      Oregon allows open carry. It requires a class and a license. I used to have one, but let it lapse. I decided that I wasn’t going to pay $100 per year for a right that I already have.

  • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

    Well, if I could be so sarcastic to say, what a radical this guy is! But, not being a lib, all I can do is applaud his actions. I can completely understand his not wanting to shoot just in case he hit someone else. Show he had his wits about him- too bad the a$$ who murdered two didn’t. So, shall we take this hero’s gun away? Who knows how many others might have been shot if the gunman hadn’t have seen this kid.
    God Bless him. I think he’ll make a good officer.

    Re “Send this to all the libs you know ASAP!”

    Maybe it will help win over the libs in your life, but with regard to the ones I know, it won’t make a damned bit of difference. Nothing ever has and nothing ever will. Either they will have a private “aha!” moment of change, or they’ll still be spouting the same nonsense they do today until their dying breaths.

    • bongobear

      Couldn’t agree more.

      • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

        Having lib-drone brother and sister, I have to agree; however, my dem brother-law has veered toward conservatism ever since he discovered guns a couple of years ago and started practicing at a range regularly.
        This would definitely affect a border-liner and new convert. Plus, never hurts to keep the information coming at the libs – increase the odds of that ‘aha!’ moment.

        Let me know when you are put in the same shoes and then maybe you can speak out about it. It isn’t easy. I’ve been in something very similar involving someone with a gun. I don’t ever want to have to do it again. But I would. Just cause he doesn’t want to see it happen again doesn’t mean he can’t handle it happening again.

        I’ve drove up on an accident where the boat being pulled by the truck had went through the back of the truck and removed the top portion of the drivers body. I don’t ever want to see that again, but that doesn’t mean I couldn’t handle it if I did have too.

      he wasn’t met with fire. There were no shots. His gun jammed, he hid to fix it and then realized he’d blown it. Little more likely story huh

  • kong1967

    Liberals are too effing stupid to get the picture. They’d probably cuss at this young man for pulling out his own gun and encouraging the shooter to take his own life…..a life that was unnecessarily lost. There’s no evidence the shooter would have shot anyone else.

    Yes, libs are that freaking retarded.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IDAKYMXLZIRLMLGEZJXV3AOO7E Vorlath

      That’s exactly what they’d say.

    • PapaLouie

      If liberals really wanted to save lives, they would seek to ban unnecessary abortions instead of guns. But they don’t really care about saving lives. They just can’t stand to let a crisis go to waste without using it to achieve their political ends.

      • kong1967

        Exactly.

      • badbadlibs

        Hear, hear!! 100% correct. They have allowed themselves to be so blinded that a life in the womb isn’t even human to them…yet, they wail and gnash their teeth over the effects of guns.

    • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

      I’m not sure what you mean by “there is no evidence the shooter would have shot anyone else”. His gun jammed, and he was trying to get it working again when this guy presented himself. He was still in a place to shoot more people. He would have shot somebody, because he was working on his weapon. Whether it be himself, or someone else, it was apparently going to happen.

      • kong1967

        Sorry for not being clear on exactly what was meant for what I am saying and what a libtard would say. That is what a libtard would say. Anything to not support concealed carry even when it’s obvious he saved lives. Libs conveniently never mention the many incidents like this one, where the shooter was stopped dead in his tracks and an untold number of lives are saved.

        They believe, falsely, that if you ban guns that no one will have them. So there would be no reason for the concealed carry because the shooter wouldn’t have a weapon. They aren’t very bright.

        • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

          These liberals are cowards who would allow any enemy to destroy what is good. They have no honor, no internal fortitude. Their emotions only serve to distort logic and weaken resolve. They live in fear of every shadow that passes by. They are frightened sheep running into the jaws of the wolf, and trying to get everyone else to follow. They are traitors to The Sheppard. Their surname is Judas, and they betray humanity with every word they speak.

          • kong1967

            Lol, I agree. I think that’s why they defend Islam instead of acknowledging it for what it is….a death cult that murders countless people continually in the name of Allah. They cower to it and capitulate out of fear, believing that doing so will give them a pass and they won’t be targeted. Many people thought the same thing about Hitler.

      • MeIandYou

        How do we even know if the person they found on the ground was the real shooter…I do not get it! If his plan is to kill himself, why was he wearing a mask? Why run to the back of the mall without camera view to end his life… I heard that his father was a key witness to some big government scandal…The same thing at the school massive shooting that killed 20 kids….The reports that came out on that one we need to question too…If I was miss inform please forgive me…

        • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

          The mall shooting was actually home grown. The theater shooting, and the school shooting were black operations events. (staged) The mall shooting was hardly even covered by the news, but they were quite ready for the others. The other shootings involved the Libor hearing issues related to the shooters. They also had multiple people carry them out, and the press carried the lone gunman story across the board, with the only exception being the local media upon first response.

          Dark elements of our government stage killings to get what they want, and it is becoming quite easy to figure out which events have these purposes behind them.

          It’s all good. This is just our reality. This country is being shut down, and government will continue to grab power while taking ours away. It is history in the remaking, and the nature of humanity.

          • MeIandYou

            So this is just sad…I hope and pray that this will end soon…Jesus come quickly and save us all once more…

    • badbadlibs

      Concerning the recent school shootings, I read a comment from someone who was more concerned about the shooter, saying we all had failed another human being or some such nonsense, many agreed.
      So, yes you are right the leftists would/will disagree with this young man’s brave and honest actions.

      • kong1967

        Disgusting. I had one major concern with the shooter. I was hoping that whoever pulled the trigger on the guy blew his entire head off.

      • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

        It must be the fault of our society for allowing pain and suffering. Apparently we need to pass restrictive gun legislation, and legislation that bans pain and suffering. Both make equal sense.

      • Orangeone

        Yeah it’s the same idiots that continually appeal death sentences because lethal injection is cruel and unusual punishment. The only thing cruel is the decades of waiting for the victims’ families.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/VYKGQ3NDZ5AJ6P6MAR4UUUDRII Vincent

      This story was never vetted. There is no proof any of it happened & nearly impossible he could have left without the weapon being discovered by police. That is why the police aren’t mentioning it, nor is it being reported by anyone else. Yet the gun fetishists and conspiracy theorists jump all over it. no need for proof!
      This guy either made it up to be a hero, or wanted to live out the ultimate gun owner’s dream, protecting his woman and children from a mass murderer…Unfortunately, saying it doesn’t make it true! No shot fired, no witnesses, he “knew” he made eye contact with a guy wearing a hockey mask at a distance, just as the gunman’s rifle jams and he runs away to fix it, and no pursuit attempted.
      Now some right wing news sites & crackpots are re-posting the story. Not following up, not investigating. Great to know people owning guns are so gullible. Very comforting.

  • JeffWRidge

    This young man showed a true understanding of firearms safety. You always make sure of everything that is downrange before you shoot. If there is even a small possibility that you might hit an innocent person, you don’t fire.

    This is the first I’ve heard of this. I wondered why a guy loaded for bear would only shoot three people before taking his own life. The mall shooter from Bosnia, who shot several people in Salt Lake City several years ago, was stopped and cornered by an off-duty cop until help arrived and took the guy out. Good guys with guns have saved many lives.

    Guns also kill lives too in the hands of the wrong people. The 2nd amendment doesn’t mean squat to people like the mall or CT shooters. It’s obvious why. It’s not in the Bible.

      Any potential weapon kill lives in the hands of the wrong people (eg, box cutters). ‘Thou shalt not murder’ doesn’t mean squat to those people, either (and that is in the Bible).

  • Nukeman60

    He followed safety rule #4: Never fire at something if you don’t know what’s in front or behind the target (ie, know your target). Sounds like this dude had his wits about him and performed well. You never endanger others just to get a shot off. The situation was tense, but he had control of it.

    Many people that don’t know guns or gun safety are afraid of them and therefore feel all guns should be banned. Gun knowledge and safety for all Americans should be a must learn. Instead of teaching sex in school, perhaps they could replace that with gun safety classes.

    With guns in the hands of people properly trained and fully aware, we would have far fewer incidents and the incidents that do occur would be less severe. We need to convince the general population of this point. Taking away the guns of responsible people is not the solution to crimes performed with guns.

    • WordsFailMe

    It’s a great story and maybe a lot of truth yo iy, but whether or not the shooter saw the kid with the gun or the kid actually fired the gun and killed the shooter- not one single fact, not one single incident would bring into question any tenet of the liberals doctrine.

    You see part of the requirement to being a b liberal is that you have to demonstrate the capacity to resist the fact, the evidence and the very truth, if necessary, in order to defend the doctrine.

    “I don’t care what the temperature reports for the last 100 years say, even an idiot can see the pollution is destroying the earth and causing the planet to warm. Just look at that picture of the polar bear floating on an ice cube”

    Global warming, guns causing deaths, criticism of black people is proof of racism–none of these propositions requires proof to am liberal and not one can be defeated by facts or argument or demonstration.

    The truth is not going to fight this battle for us.

    So, Scoop, while I admire your dedication to the truth, sending facts to libs to dispute their cherished beliefs is a waste of time. And furthermore, if you believe you can continue to bombard the libs, the illegal voters, the welfare generations with tirades and facts and proof, you are either befooling yourself or befooling the people who contribute here. There will be no easy way out of this communist/socialist mess we’ve gotten ourselves into. They have the youth and they have the kids coming up next.

    “You cain’t stop what’s coming…it aint’ all waiting on you. That’s vanity.”

    As evidence, I offer to you the stories about blacks turning against Obama due to his position on gay marriage and the public outrage of some black pastors encouraging their congregations to vote their conscience instead of their race. We were all starting to believe that tripe as if it were the truth, a miracle from heaven. You will not convert members of the opposition to your cause with logic and argumentation, reason-ability or appeal to moral or religious standards. It just doesn’t work when your opposition thinks of you as greedy, rich, lying, racist old windbag.

    The libs of today will convert when they pass 48 or when the power of conservatives crushes the liberals in this country.

    Save your breath. And your keyboard

      If people want to understand the big picture, they have to figure out how dependent the American people are. This includes all races, religions, and political factions. Once this is determined, it should be evident that democrats and republican liberals are going to cause this nation to become destitute without any real oposition, and then they will usher in world government. Enjoy the freedoms we still have, because they won’t last forever. If you plan to survive coming times, get out of the cities and prepare. The establishment will not allow real political solutions unless the states fight back in a real way. The odds of that are slim.

          That is just a fight over who is going to run and pay for the bureaucracy of implementing it. The states need to nullify the law, and make the feds try to enforce it against state law. The same is going on with marijuana, why not Obama Care? The states can also make federal taxes go through the state, then use it as leverage against the feds.

          There are lots of things that can be done on the state and local level. The sheriff can arrest federal agents for unconstitutional acts. All we really need is a few sheriffs and their posse’.

    This is how responsible gun owners react. But, the millions of responsible gun owners should be punished because of the few crazies out there. Why does this government want it’s citizens to be unarmed? I think we have a dictator wannabe who wants to push his unpopular policies on “we the people” and he doesn’t want “we the people” to be able to fight against it. If we give up our right to bare arms, then we give up every other right we have.

      All governments are evil, and ours is no different. Some of the founders knew this. One quote goes something like this: “the nature of government is to grow and become tyrannical”. Those who seek power are generally not the most humble servants. It is the nature of man that makes all government evil. Power brings out the worst of all human traits. The more power a government has, the more evil it will become. Our system started out with checks and balances that have diminished well beyond their ability to restrain evil in government. Our government will now kill its own citizens to get what it wants. It will kill many people overseas to control a whole region of the world for it true constituents. It will lie with every talking point, and program its citizens to accept their growing tyranny under the guise of protecting them.

      Anyone who believes that this government can be controlled by the people, and used for good, is deceiving themselves.

    This is a very good example of how to use your weapon. I teach this technique, See if it would have been a law enforcement officer, innocent people would have been wounded or worst KILLED. A cop would have emptied his weapon, as they all are prone to this. Never once worrying about down range, Second part is “HE TOOK COVER” and assessed the situation!

    I need not make any other case for my position on why teachers and administrators should not have guns in classrooms.

Armed security professionals (retired law enforcement and vets) have those skills and should be employed for each and every one of our schools and the implementation timeline needs to be now.

    This guy either made it up to be a hero, or wanted to live out the ultimate gun owner’s dream, protecting his woman and children from a mass murderer…Unfortunately, saying it doesn’t make it true! No shot fired, no witnesses, he “knew” he made eye contact with a guy wearing a hockey mask at a distance, just as the gunman’s rifle jams and he runs away to fix it, and no pursuit attempted.
    Now some right wing news sites & crackpots are re-posting the story. Not following up, not investigating. Great to know people owning guns are so gullible. Very comforting.

    if he had shot the guy dont you think the libs would dog him for bringing a weapon into a gun free zone? Woundnt they try to prosicute him for bringing a gun into a gun free zone? I applaud him for his actions..but still.

    Sounds like the shooter had a weapons malfunction. He might have popped himself because of that.
