A survivor of the mass shooting at an El Paso, Texas, Walmart said in an interview this week that his mother, who usually carries her handgun wherever she goes, did not do so on Saturday.
But he wishes she had.
Christopher Grant is being hailed as a hero for throwing bottles at the shooter, successfully drawing the killer to himself and away from other innocent bystanders.
Grant, who was hit in the process, described his experience in a Monday interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
“I heard gunshots, and I knew what it was, so I ran towards my mother to try to shield her,” Grant said from his hospital bed.
“And I’m like, mom — ’cause my mom, she’s a gun-wielding grandma. She carries a snub-nose Smith & Wesson, .38 special with a built-in scope in it, everywhere she goes,” he said.
