If it wasn’t for Noah Nathan, we wouldn’t have this video of this morning’s shooting at the Republican softball practice.
He was walking his dogs when the attack started.
“I’m just lying on the ground holding on to my dogs making sure they don’t get away,” he said. “I’m sort of thinking, ‘I hope I don’t get shot.'”
But he kept “filming” the scene.
