Armed bystander stops stabbing outside school

From ABC News. (H/T All American Blogger)

A woman is in critical condition after she was stabbed outside her child’s school Tuesday morning.

The attack happened around 10:00 a.m. Tuesday outside the Bonham Academy on St. Mary’s Street. Teresa Barron, 38, had just dropped off her child at the school when the child’s father showed up, and the two got into an argument. The child’s father, 38-year-old Roberto Barron allegedly then stabbed the woman several times in the upper body and neck area.

Police say a bystander who happened to be a concealed handgun license holder pulled his weapon and ordered Barron to drop the knife. Barron surrendered and was taken into custody by the bystander and a school district officer.

The woman was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center.

Barron was arrested for aggravated assault, and is in jail on a $150,000 bond.

It’s a good thing it was outside the school, because I would think that defensive handgun use is prohibited inside the school, and the stabbing would not have been prevented there.

    But guns cause all the violence!

      Didn’t the knife cause the violence in this article or are we reading the same article?

        The knife was the tool of the violent offender. Knives don’t kill people. People kill people, but guns kill them easier, especially if you have a carry permit.
