GoFundMe page for Oregon hero Chris Mintz tops 1/2 million dollars in 24 hours

 

If it’s possible for a feel-good story to emerge from the tragic shooting in Oregon that saw ten people die, including the gunman who was killed by police, it would be the story of Army veteran Chris Mintz.

And the generosity of the American people.

The vet is being hailed as a real life hero after being shot seven times while charging to block a door to prevent the crazed gunman from entering the room, according to the New York Daily News.

His aunt, Wanda Mintz, said after being shot several times, Mintz cried out to the shooter, “It’s my son’s birthday!” — Oct. 1 was his son’s sixth birthday — but the killer showed no mercy, shooting him two more times.

Miraculously, Mintz survived!

“He just tried to do the right thing,” the aunt said of her nephew. “That’s just how he is. If he sees someone who needs help, he just helps. He just tried to intervene.”

In addition to seven gun shot wounds, Mintz somehow broke both his legs, prompting his cousin, Derek Bourgeois, to create a GoFundMe page to help pay for the medical bills, the International Business Times reported

That's all you got Punk!

That’s all you got Punk!

“Yesterday, my cousin Chris Mintz was shot 7 times while trying to protect others from the gunman at Umpqua Community College,” Bourgeois wrote. “He is a father, a veteran, a student, and now, he’s a hero.”

“While Chris is not the type of person to ask for it, he is going to need all of the help he can get while he recovers!” he added. “Myself and many family members have been swamped with requests for us to set up a GoFundMe page, so this is us fulfilling that request, and we appreciate your concerns and assistance.”

The page had a modest goal of $10,000, but as of Saturday morning, less than 24 hours after being set up, it had already topped half a million dollars — $570,176 to be exact.

It’s safe to say that in these troubling times, America still loves a hero. God Bless you Chris Mintz, and may the donations continue to flow.

  1. We know Obama wants “gun free” zones,
    but next he will be advocating “gut free zones”.
    The whole nation should be gun free AND gut free.

    Do not allow anyone with a sense of honor or courage to enter a gun free zone and possibly inhibit some lunatic’s ‘free expression’

    Obama will do or say whatever it takes to disarm America and accomplish the realization of his NWO totalitarian plan.

    I hope Chris Mintz doesn’t utter the words God or Patriotism, or else the website will shut down this funding campaign, and the DOJ will label his actions as a hate crime and prosecute him.

    We the Sheeple

  2. MTP, why so glum chum? This is a good uplifting in your face
    obama/lefty/lowlife scumbag story. We will never ever surrender.
    And Never will they get our guns.
    Molon Labe!

    • Steve,
      Thirty-something years ago I had bumper stickers on my pickup trucks which read: “When Guns Are Outlawed Only Outlaws Will Have Guns”, “You Can Have My Gun When You Pry It From My Cold Dead Fingers” and my all time favorite: “We Are From The Government – We Are Here To Help You”.

      I don’t have them anymore because I began to be harassed by the cops. Especially in certain states, where I was feared to be one of “Them There Constitutionalist Agitators” which they were obviously targeting.

      However I have found these days that flying under the radar is in some cases “The Better Part of Valor” in this age of PC Insanity.

      Of course such postings as this one would put anyone on the “Red List” but I have been on that since it was only a rumor back in the ’90s so that doesn’t worry me. But at least I can drive around without unnecessary travel delays.

      Hang in there buddy, This is just beginning to get interesting! 🙂

  3. Not glum, pissed.

    I got stuck in the storm on the road over the weekend and grabbed a room at the first place I came to in Florence SC. There was no bible in the room, but a Koran in the lobby.

  4. Me, Please tell me you’re kidding me. That would piss me off too.

  5. Freedom, No bumper stickers either. Too much of a hassle I know what you mean. I’ve been blogging since 2009 and I’m sure I’m on quite a few lists.
    I hope the first is True Blue American.
    I’ve always been careful with what I say (mostly) just the truth. I’ve cautioned others when they were near the line. Or tossed them when over.
    I know it will get interesting. In fact it has already started.

  6. Not kidding.
    There was a Koran in the lobby.
    Ironically, the place was a pig sty.

    Then there was a flood the next day
    Go figure

  8. Danke Schoen, Chris.

  9. I had pro-life stickers on my older delivery van and was parked in the upscale lot of the Fresh Market, and got the entire van keyed. That’s what happens when you’re a Christian. We never key cars because we know God is watching, but boy the temptation with those horrible COEXIST bumper stickers is sure there. I just hate those!…Co exist with demonic entities like Muzzies? No thanks

  10. The crowd at the Charlottesville Fresh Market and Whole Foods is a bunch of obnoxious old farts and brain dead elite.
    I try not to be obnoxious,
    my brain isn’t totally dead and
    I’m def not an elite.

    National demonstrations for babyparts-r-us scheduled for 10/10.
    Maybe the high school will have a car keying booth set up at ours as a fund raiser for the cheerleaders abortion fund

  11. A honorary knighthood for Christopher Lee Mintz. Imagine, Christopher Lee Mintz, Knight of the British Empire!

  12. Christopher Mintz times two:
    Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Christopher Lee Mintz are not related. Mintz is a gentile and Mintz-Plasse is a Hebrew.

  13. VEG, what’s the point?
