Nicole Wallace cried while listening to author Dave Cullen recount the heroics of an unarmed bartender who reportedly took on the Club Q shooter.
Karen said on Deadline: The White House:
This shocked me because I lived in Colorado for 16 years. I spend a lot of time in gay bars in Colorado Springs. That’s the starting point for the book I’m writing right now. This is a rough place. At the time it was known as the Evangelical Vatican. It’s very intense. I don’t know if they still call it that. What amazes me is not only the bravery here, of all the mass shootings I can remember, Frank or someone else probably knows, the shooting of Gabby Giffords in Tucson is the only one I can recall of unarmed people disarming a gunman The incident. In that case, I believe it was an unarmed colonel until someone jumped in. They wait for the man to reload.
In this case, that person jumped in. My sources tell me they now believe a trans bartender actually did it. Sorry, I got a little choked up. All the hate against these people, you know, talking about these people, you know, you know, belittling them as undeserving people and, well, how many — gay or trans people are willing to stand up and stand up to the shooter . And you know- you know, more than you I might be…you know, drag queens. What the hell? What’s wrong with being a drag queen? But anyway, for all these guys, look, the biggest man here.

As a country, much of the country seems to have reached a point of grief and emotional overload over mass shootings. These incidents are unnecessary and can be reduced by banning assault weapons.
Nicolle Wallace, one of the best hosts on cable news, endured when she heard the pain of hate being spread for a good cause and the bravery of those willing to risk their lives to stop the killing I couldn’t help but shed tears.
The Right Wing is instigating and fueling this violence and the killing will not stop unless the majority confronts this terrorist hate filled minority.
