This is a case where Texas gun laws saved at least one life. A man decided to stab a woman to death right in front of a school where she had just dropped her child off for the school day. An armed bystander used his gun to stop the violent crime in progress.
If gun free school zone laws were misapplied this could have been much worse. It is no accident that criminals and mass killers target school as they know that their potential victims will be disarmed by the state.
SAN ANTONIO – A woman is in critical condition after she was stabbed outside her child’s school Tuesday morning.
The attack happened around 10:00 a.m. Tuesday outside the Bonham Academy on St. Mary’s Street. Teresa Barron, 38, had just dropped off her child at the school when the child’s father showed up, and the two got into an argument. The child’s father, 38-year-old Roberto Barron allegedly then stabbed the woman several times in the upper body and neck area.
Police say a bystander who happened to be a concealed handgun license holder pulled his weapon and ordered Barron to drop the knife. Barron surrendered and was taken into custody by the bystander and a school district officer.
The woman was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center.
Barron was arrested for aggravated assault, and is in jail on a $150,000 bond.
