Armed school worker stops attempted kidnap suspect

An armed school employee in Utah held off an attempted kidnapping suspect at gunpoint until officers arrived on Tuesday. The incident occurred when a man grabbed an 11-year-old girl at a school playground in Ogden. He tried to pull her away until the school employee demanded he leave. The man let the girl go and the employee took all the children inside, then produced a gun and held the man off.

Wait what? A good guy with a gun saves the day. Funny how that happens when stüpïd ppl play stüpïd games in states with less infringements.

Courage is a rare thing Thank God above for masculinity (before I'm attacked, didn't read the story, but even if teacher was female - she'd be displaying a masculine trait).

Things like this happen a lot more often than people realize. What's really amazing is that a news outlet is actually reporting it!

This is what responsible, legal gun ownership looks like. Also, kudos for getting the kids inside before pulling the gun!

What? How dare they allow school employees to be armed? That employee should have been forced to watch helplessly as the girl was dragged off. I'm sure the poli-- sorry, the trained social workers-- would be able to find her before anything bad happened.

How is this possible? The left has told us that teachers cannot be trusted with a gun because they might pull it in their students during a tense situation. Maybe she just had very mellow students.

Here is a leftist comment, I'm canadian here in Canada I as the teacher did, would have stopped the girl from being taken then without producing a gun would have restrained the wouldbe kidnapper once again without producing a gun, I would get someone to contact the police. No one could have been shot because once again NO GUN WOULD HAVE BEEN USED!

This is blasphemy we all know anyone who owns a gun is a violent racist.

They keep saying employee. Was he a security guard? Because it sounds like security guards would be safer than just hoping one of your employees is better armed and not outnumbered.

The employee took all the children inside (while the attacker waited) then returned to hold the attacker at gun point. Something doesn't quite add up. Why didn't the bad guy escape when he had the opportunity?

The one time someone who actually had a gun. How about the others who aren't so lucky. Obviously bad guys with guns out weigh the good guys. I think it's safe guns obviously are the problem.

As a Canadian, with my mother as a teacher, NOBODY needs guns at school. Proven by ZERO school shootings in Canada these last what 8 years? RIP AMERICA

Ah America, you will now use this one example for the next 55 years to escape common sense gun control and soon will have Mrs. Applebottom STRAPPED UP GLOCK ON THE HIP READY TO HIT THOSE KIDS

A can of spray paint may have worked just as well.

Amazing that ABC actually reported this. Politifact will probably still say it lacks context ...
