An Oregon man used his legally carried handgun to stop an armed robber late last week.
According to local media reports, Jason Rorex was on a date with his girlfriend in a local park when another man jumped out with a knife and demanded money. In response, Rorex pulled his Smith & Wesson Bodyguard pistol, sending the wannabe thief fleeing.
“On Sunday my girlfriend and [I] were walking in a busy park, midday, when a person asked us for money,” Rorex wrote on his Facebook page later that day. “I said we do not give money out. He then pulled a knife on us and began to rush us from about seven feet away. I luckily had a firearm with me and was fortunate enough to resolve the situation without a shot being fired. I did have to draw my firearm and aim it at the armed attacker. He immediately stopped his attack, and was arrested minutes later. I feel this story speaks to the safety and reliability a firearm offers for self defense …”
Bloomberg’s Demanding Moms Steal NRA Eddie Eagle Message
We’d like to think that mothers wouldn’t steal from us. But if we thought that, we’d be disappointed in Michael Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action group.
The Demanding Moms have more than once criticized NRA for its Eddie Eagle gun safety message, which has been taught to more than 28 million children since 1988. The program’s lifesaving message: If you find a gun, “STOP! Don’t touch. Run away. Tell a grown-up.”
Now the moms have claimed NRA’s message as their own. A blog post on The New York Times, discussing a Demanding Moms safety initiative, stated, “That group co-founded a gun safety program that works with PTAs around the country. Children should be taught to leave the area immediately, not touch the firearm, tell an adult right away and call a parent, Ms. (Shannon) Watts said.” Sound familiar?
