Armed Oklahoma Man Saves Neighbor Children

Gun-ban advocates like to say that if their new restrictive laws could save “even one life,” then the resulting loss of freedom would be “worth it.”

After a vicious attack on children in Oklahoma on Friday, I’ll see their one life, and raise them another.

Thanks to the fact that gun-ban advocates haven’t yet been able to accomplish their end game—outlawing armed self-defense as protected by the Second Amendment—two Ada, Okla., babies are alive today who likely would not be otherwise.

According to The Ada News, a local man saved the life of two neighbor children, and likely their mother as well, on Friday. The story is not a pretty one, although in the end good triumphed over evil, and the two babies were shaken up, but still alive.

Left with little recourse, Freeman shot the crazed attacker twice, killing him and saving both babies and their mother.Media reports indicate that 27-year-old Leland Foster forced his way into the home and tried to kill his own 3-month-old twins. The local 911 service received a call from the mother of the twins saying that she and the babies were being attacked by the suspect, who was armed with a knife.

In the meantime, a 12-year-old girl fled the home and ran next door seeking help from the neighbor, Cash Freeman. He grabbed his revolver, ran to the home and, hearing a woman screaming and sounds of a struggle coming from inside, charged into the melee.

What he found there is the stuff of nightmares. Foster was holding the twins underwater trying to drown them in the bathtub, while also threatening their mother with a knife. Left with little recourse, Freeman shot the crazed attacker twice, killing him and saving both babies and their mother.

Turns out that the attacker had “prior criminal charges for arson and domestic abuse by strangulation.” Both twins were treated at an Oklahoma City hospital and released the next day.

The entire episode is one you won’t see much about in so-called “mainstream” media, nor will Shannon Watts be tweeting about how a good guy with a gun saved two young lives. But the fact remains, had not the neighbor been armed and willing to help, both babies, along with their mother, likely would be dead.

That’s a story that should be told far and wide to anyone who will listen. Fact is, guns save lives—regardless of what those who would see our rights diminished parrot on a daily basis.

We know it’s true. That’s one reason we’ll never stop fighting for our right to keep and bear arms for defense of ourselves, our families and, yes, our neighbors.
