Please bear in mind that we’re still trying to verify the details of this story.  Bearing in mind that it’s probably true, however, I wonder what Wendy, Bloomberg, Feinstein & Co.® will have to say about this?

My bet is: not a God damned thing.

The two permanent imperatives of the gun grabber are, never let a tragedy  go to waste and run and hide when things don’t go your way.

So, on the bright side, at least we can probably look forward to a little peace and quiet from the peanut gallery for a few days.  Don’t look for any lectures about how armed bystanders only cause crossfire make things worse. Just sit back and listen to the crickets…

A former marine emerged as a hero of the Nairobi siege yesterday after he was credited with saving up to 100 lives.

The ex soldier was having coffee at the Westgate mall when it was attacked by Islamists on Saturday.

With a gun tucked into his waistband, he was pictured helping two women from the complex.

His story emerged as sporadic gunfire continued to ring out from inside the mall early today as Kenyan security forces battled Al Qaeda-linked terrorists into a fourth day.

Despite Kenyan police assurances that they had taken control of the building, a security expert with contacts inside the mall said at least 10 hostages were still being held by a band of attackers, possibly as many as 13.
