Prior to September 1, 2021, roughly 1.5M Texans were licensed to carry firearms.

One out of every 20 people was legally armed. After that date, that ratio is believed to have changed to one out of every 10, thanks to Texas enacting Constitutional carry.

A Waco man found out the hard way that if you are in public and you get violent, chances are someone is going to have a weapon and is willing to use it to save someone else’s life.

That is exactly what happened last Friday night. Around 7:40 pm, witnesses saw a man with a knife chasing a woman into the QuickTrip (QT) convenience store.

Byron Bryant, 51, is alleged to have been “actively stabbing a female and was chasing her into the gas station,” Waco police said in a statement.

At that time of night, there are likely more than 10 people at a QT. So odds were there would be a good Samaritan that would intervene.

That man was there, and while several witnesses were calling 9-1-1, he drew his weapon and put an end to the attack, shooting Bryant at least once.

According to KWTX:

“Officers were responding to the scene when they learned a separate third-party individual had intervened in an attempt to defend the female victim by shooting the suspect with a handgun.”

He was transported, as was his victim, to a local hospital. Both were treated for severe injuries.

While the woman is still in critical condition, Bryant was released on Monday and his being held in the McLennan County Jail on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

It is not yet clear what led to the violent attack or if Bryant and his victim knew one another.

And the armed individual who stopped what could have been a deadly attack?

Police say that he remained on scene and was cooperative. He was released after speaking with officers. It doesn’t appear that he will be facing charges for his actions.
