Mugger Ordered the Wrong Man to Empty His Pockets

An armed man comes up behind a customer at the pay window of a Detroit gas station and orders him to empty his pockets. The gas station employee was safely locked behind bulletproof glass. The police were nowhere around.  Even if the gas station attendant called 911, they couldn’t possibly get there in time. And the victim could not know if he was merely going to be robbed or much worse. He was at the mercy of a gunman pointing a weapon at him. He was told to take everything out of his Read more […]

Restaurant Employee Shoots Masked Gunman. Will He Be Charged?

I wouldn’t be surprised if this armed employee is fired by the restaurant because he as carrying a weapon. Most businesses make their property a gun-free zone at least as far as employees are concerned. Whether or not he was supposed to do so, this restaurant employee was prepared. The Sun-Sentinel reports, “Masked gunman shot dead by restaurant employee.” The tables turned for a masked gunman when he was shot and killed by an employee of the Miramar restaurant he attempted to rob, police said. Just Read more […]

How the Ruling Class Trains Disarmed Sheep to be Slaughtered

Not everyone needs to be armed. People are free to choose. In certain situations a gun can save your life. The question you have to ask yourself is how likely is it that you’re going to be in that situation. If you are broke and haven’t been raised in gun culture you’re looking at a commitment of time and money to purchase a gun and to make sure you don’t endanger yourself or others with a gun. Right now, gun violence is not common–not even as common as it used to be. Getting a gun is like buying Read more […]

“New Strategy” against Terrorism: More Police but No Second Amendment

I don’t mean the Second Amendment is explicitly opposed (though that happens often enough), but this Reuters story on strategy for fighting homegrown terrorism doesn’t even mention it. U.S. officials, faced with an evolving threat of deadly attacks by homegrown extremists, are rethinking their strategy on battling domestic terror after Wednesday’s assault that killed 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif., the New York Times reported on Saturday. The United States should beef up airline security by Read more […]

Armed Americans Urged to Act as Line of Defense against Terrorism

While Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and other Democrats are reflexively calling for punishing law-abiding gun owners for what they won’t acknowledge is a terrorist attack, others disagree. The Washington Times reports on those who don’t believe we will be safer if we are blocked from the tools we need to defend ourselves. “I think after Paris, and as we learn more about this event [in San Bernardino] we need to be nimble enough and pragmatic enough to recognize that there’s definitely a small Read more […]

Police Chief: Second Amendment Fights Terrorism

The Detroit News reports, “Police Chief Craig: Armed Detroiters cut terror risk.” The city’s police chief said he believes violent extremists would be reluctant to target Detroit, as they had Paris last month, for fear armed citizens would shoot back. “A lot of Detroiters have CPLs (concealed pistol licenses), and the same rules apply to terrorists as they do to some gun-toting thug,” Chief James Craig said. “If you’re a terrorist, or a carjacker, you want unarmed citizens.” Oakland Read more […]

What if He Would Have Had a Gun?

James Vernon is 75 years old and teaches chess to children at his local library.  Last week, he jumped into action when an attacker threatened the children he teaches. According to The Pekin Daily Times: Sixteen children were getting a chess lesson from James Vernon in a room at the library when 19-year-old Dustin Brown allegedly came in with a hunting knife in each hand screaming that he was going to kill people. Vernon tells the Washington Post that one thought went through his mind: “This Read more […]

No Multiculturalism Here: College Professor Refuses to Tolerate Concealed Carriers

Tolerance for different cultures ends when it comes to gun culture according to one college professor who quit his job. It is quite amazing how a college professor feels so free to express his contempt for others who think differently. His claims to be motivated by safety concerns are laughable. This is pure prejudice and bigotry. According to Inside Higher Ed, Proponents of Texas’s new campus carry gun law say it could help save lives in an active shooter scenario, since those with guns could Read more […]

Why a Loving Mother Needs to Carry a Firearm

A loving mother makes the news by fighting off a child abductor with her hands and teeth. Luckily she won. This Associated Press story doesn’t mention any handguns, but I wish the mother had been carrying one. It took place in Norcross, Georgia: “Man tries to kidnap baby from car at McDonald’s, but mother fights him off, police say.” Police say a man tried to kidnap a baby from a car in a McDonald’s parking lot, but her mother and another relative fought him off. Police in the Atlanta Read more […]

Colorado Concealed Carrier Brings Gun to a Knife Attack

Even though he was at a church, this concealed carrier was prepared to save a woman’s life. While Colorado has been a place of intense attacks on the Second Amendment, a woman is alive today because of a concealed carrier in Boulder. The Daily Camera reports, “Boulder police: Armed witness rescued woman from attempted murder outside church.” An enraged drunken man had a knife to his estranged wife’s throat as she said what she thought was her final prayer before dying. He had already Read more […]

CNN Anchors Both Carry and It Saved Their Lives

If these CNN anchors had both been unarmed, they would probably be dead and we would be hearing more anti-gun news stories about it. Watch this one go down the CNN memory hole almost immediately. (They did feel compelled to acknowledge the story.) Former Headline News anchor—Lynne Russell—and her husband (a former CNN correspondent) BOTH carry concealed weapons, and had to use them to defend themselves against a violent thug. Here it is from KOAT.com: “A former CNN correspondent was Read more […]

Woman Didn’t Follow Gun Banners’ Plan for Victimization

Gun banners wish this Texas woman had been robbed—or worse. While in New Jersey a woman was stabbed to death waiting for the gun banners to graciously grant her permission to exercise her right as recognized by the Second Amendment, in Texas a woman was able to bring about a different outcome. From ABC 13 in Houston: “HCSO: Licensed Gun Holder Shoots Would-Be Robber in NE Harris County.” A licensed gun holder took matters into her own hands when a man tried to rob her Friday evening Read more […]
