Florida Gunman Stopped by Armed Good Guys in Deadly Encounter
There’s no such thing as a good guy with a gun, right? Well, you better tell these folks who managed to put an end to a shooting rampage before it fully got started. Sadly, one person died and one was paralyzed, but, if it wasn’t for good guys with guns, this could have been significantly worse than it turned out to be.

The left likes to pretend that good guys with guns never stop mass shootings. They use some pretty clever tricks to “prove” that point, too. One of their favorites is to pretend like the potential mass shootings that are stopped don’t really count because the body count is so low. Then they pretend that a case like Sutherland Springs proves the good guy with a gun won’t react fast enough or something.
In Rockledge, Florida, we have a case that will undoubtedly be classified by anti-gun fanatics as the former.
A man armed with a .45-caliber handgun and a lot of ammunition wandered onto an auto repair shop property and began firing in the parking lot Friday afternoon, police said.
The gunman killed one employee and paralyzed a second. That’s when the employees at Schlenker Automotive fought back with equal force, Rockledge police chief Joseph La Sata said.
“The manager, who was a concealed weapons permit holder, came out and engaged in gunfire in the parking lot,” La Sata said. “The manager fled back inside the building, being chased by the gunman. Another Schlenker employee, who also had concealed weapons permit, engaged in gunfire with the suspect.”
Police said the suspect in the homicide is Robert Lorenzo Bailey Jr., 28, of Cocoa. He was shot twice and was in critical condition at Health First’s Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne. Officers are keeping him under watch.
