When good guys have guns too................

Thomas Piccard.

Do you know who he is?

Why isn't the name Thomas Piccard plastered all over every news organization across the US.

Because, unlike every other spree killer in the US, this guy was confronted by good guys with guns.

As a result, people lived through his attack instead of being mowed down like a row of autumn corn stalks.

BTW, here's who Thomas Piccard is.................

One day before Thomas Piccard used an assault rifle and a handgun to pepper Wheeling's Federal Building with more than 20 rounds Wednesday, the retired Wheeling police officer told a neighbor he had been diagnosed with cancer.

Police Chief Shawn Schwertfeger identified 55-year-old Piccard as the man who opened fire on the Federal Building at 2:43 p.m. Wednesday, striking and shattering multiple windows before a responding city officer shot and killed him. A motive for the shooting remains unclear.

Robert Orgovan has lived across the street from Piccard at Presidential Estates in Bridgeport since Piccard moved into a mobile home there about a year ago. Orgovan first met him a few years ago, when Piccard was living at Booker T. Washington Apartment on Chapline Street in Wheeling.

I wonder how many times Piers Morgan has mentioned his name?
