    Remember this name - Chris Mintz.

    Army Veteran who charged the shooter unarmed, wounded at least 5 times while trying to protect his fellow students.

    The 5 rounds + he took meant 5+ fewer students shot!

    He is recuperating in the hospital with two broken legs.

    Chris Mintz - American Hero!

    We need to start a gofundme to help him out. He is going to be facing a LOT of medical bills in the near future.

    I believe there is already a gofundme out there and there is already over 100,000.00 dollars in there, but there is a long way to go. God bless people like Chris Mintz. I would hope that I would handle a situation like that (God forbid it should ever happen) with the courage that this man has.

    To bad he wasn't armed, he could have stop the dip in his tracks. May he recover quickly from his injuries. A Hero in every sense of the word.

    Shouldn't all gun free zones be responsible for medical and funeral expenses that they fail to prevent from crazy people with guns they don't stop! It's suppose to be gun free, right!

    Don't forget about punitive damages for gross negligence.

    There's enough wastage being paid for by taxpayers, as it is. I would view punitive damages for negligence, as described above, as a worthwhile expenditure. If it ends up bringing about an expansion of the right to carry, then it is money well spent.
