Resourcefulness & Courage Made Up for Lack of Handgun

Two Houston car robbers (or three?) made three mistakes: they didn’t realize that all car trunks now have a glow-in-the dark emergency release inside of them, and they kept the man’s mobile phone which was like a homing beacon for the police. But their main mistake was thinking that the car salesman, Jose Martinez, would become compliant just because they beat him up and pointed a gun at him. Wrong salesman. There are several versions of this story and I think the statements the newswoman Read more […]

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 […]

Should a Pastor Teach that It is Wrong For Christians to Defend Themselves?

I suppose John Piper will object to my interpretation of his essay, “Should Christians Be Encouraged to Arm Themselves?” If so, he is self-deceived. The point of this long essay is to tell Christians they should not possess firearms and the secondary point is to deny that he is not telling Christians that they should not possess firearms. The reason he touched on the subject, he tells us, is because he didn’t like the words of Jerry Falwell, Jr., telling his students to arm themselves. I Read more […]

Utility Worker Stops Robbery with Concealed Weapon

Say what you will about the legality of carrying concealed weapons, but this story proves that allowing the general public to have access to guns can save lives and stop crime!

Self-Defense Shooting Earns Accusations

A self-defense shooting should have tried to wound, we are told. reports, Reginald Gildersleeve walked into a Chicago store Saturday night, wearing a mask, brandished a gun, pointed it at a worker and forced her to the back of the store, and announced his intention to rob the place, police say. That’s when another customer, who has a concealed-carry license, confronted Gildersleeve, took out his own gun, and fired several times, killing the 55-year-old robbery suspect, authorities Read more […]

Gun Control is NOT Love, Mr. Obama

The natural and God-given right of self-defense is perfectly summed up by this exposition found in America’s fundamental law which regulates all our civil government institutions: “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Definitive, bright, unequivocal, and by no stretch of the imagination is the Second Amendment confusing. Let’s look at the words of Jesus on this topic…“Then said He unto them…he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and Read more […]

Umpqua Gave Us a Real Life Action Hero

Unlike an action hero on the screen, Chris Mintz took real risks and real damage. The problem with a fictional action hero in a movie or in a TV show is that they are the protagonist. You know they can’t really get hurt. They are also always super effective. In fact, whether it is Jason Bourne or Denzel Washington as “the Equalizer” or any of the others, they constantly encourage the myth that a person can be so trained and so skilled that he can fight people with guns and know that he Read more […]

When Zero Tolerance Is Gun Control on Steroids: What Happens When ALL Self-Defense is Illegal?

Zero tolerance means that one person rescuing another person from violence might be prosecuted as a crime some day. While there are times when one wishes for more police accountability, many other times they are the most sensible of public employees. In fact, they can often use common sense when others refuse to do so. A recent instance of this occurred when a teen began attacking a legally blind kid by punching him. Another teen intervened by punching the bully and knocking him to the ground. According 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 […]

On Second Amendment, Progressives Just Make It Up As They Go

Progressivism has always depended on the destruction of American traditions and culture to advance its agenda. It has to, because it’s American individualism that stands in the way of the collectivist worldview. As such, one of the highest priority targets for the Left is gun rights. The number of laws, regulations and roadblocks covering an individual’s right to bear arms is well-known, as is the ineffectiveness of gun control at stopping crime. As preventing criminal violence is the primary 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 “A former CNN correspondent was Read more […]
