US Airman & National Guardsman Take Down Gunman On European Train

Today in France, three U.S. citizens, one an Airman and another a National Guardsman, with a civilian, traveling on a high speed train headed to Amsterdam took down a crazed gunman who began to open-fire on the train.

He was wielding an AK47 and the attack killed three people.

The Americans heard the man loading a weapon in the bathroom and moved as fast as they could to detain him once he emerged. The unarmed men took the crazed gunman down and held him until the authorities arrived.

God bless these brave Americans!
