Another shooting on October 1st


gunTen dead, 7 injured at Umpqua Community College,  Roseburg, Oregon.

I couldn’t help but remember another shooting on October 1st, in Pearl MS.  Stopped by a good guy with a gun. (Originally posted 12/17/12).

UPDATE:  I noticed that Yahoo Search shows the #UCC occuring on 9/30/15. Here is the screengrab:  Just a quick FYI for my fellow conspiracy theorists.

On October 1, 1997 at Pearl High School in Pearl, MS, 16-year-old Luke Woodham killed two students and injured seven others. Before the shooting at began, Woodham stabbed his mother to death in their home as she was about to begin her morning jog. The shootings shocked the country. It was said many times, if this can happen in Pearl, it can happen anywhere. Unfortunately, over the years, this statement has proven to be true.

The shootings at Pearl High School was the first of the modern-day rash of school shootings.

But it could have been much worse. But for the actions of vice-principal Joel Myrick, and the grace of God, it would have been.

The moment Joel Myrick heard shots, he ran to his pickup truck, removed his Colt .45 from its case, removed ammo from another case, loaded his gun and went looking for the killer. He could have confronted Woodham much sooner, but for the fact that Federal law prohibits anyone but a police officer from having a gun in or near a school. “I’ve always kept a gun in the truck just in case something like this ever happened,” said Myrick.

By the time he confronted the Woodham, 2 students were murdered, and 7 others were wounded. Woodham was trying to make his get-away to the nearby Middle School to continue the carnage. Woodham’s lever-action 30-30 is an effective deer rifle. But it takes time to chamber each round, point, aim and fire. Precious time. Time that Joel Myrick could have used to stop the shootings, but for gun laws.

Myrick foiled Woodham’s plan. He saw the killer fleeing and positioned himself. Woodham, seeing the gun pointed at his head, crashed the car. Myrick approached the killer and confronted him. “Here was this monster killing kids in my school, and the minute I put a gun to his head he was a kid again,” Myrick said.

Myrick’s actions stopped the shootings and saved lives. But the MSM doesn’t talk much about him, do they? President Obama says it’s time to have some gun control talk. Well, OK. Let’s just remember to talk about Joel Myrick.

  1. Oregon Mass Shooter On Terror List Obama Refused To Take From Russia.

    With the true knowledge of Mercer being known as the black-Islamic terrorist he truly was, information which the Obama regime refused to accept from Russia, his mass terror act in identifying and killing Christians becomes immediately understandable.

    ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) — As a 26-year-old killer gunned down victims inside a college classroom, he spared one student and gave him a package to deliver to authorities, according to the grandmother of a student who witnessed the deadly rampage in Oregon.

    The grandmother, Janet Willis, said her granddaughter Anastasia Boylan was wounded in the Thursday attack and pretended to be dead as Christopher Sean Harper-Mercer kept firing, killing eight students and a teacher.
