Another Good Guy With A Gun

posted on May 22, 2015

A 49-year-old man recently showed up for his dialysis appointment in Independence Township, Mich., only to be confronted by a revolver-wielding suspect just outside the clinic. The 4:40 a.m. confrontation was over the victim’s wallet: When he refused to turn it over, the suspect produced the revolver. The victim then drew his own weapon, and asked, “Do you really want to do this?” The suspect immediately fled.

We would offer three observations. Clearly, an expectation of safety while minding one’s own business under totally legitimate circumstances is the stuff of dreams; criminals are opportunists. Second, when criminals act, there is rarely time to call for help, much less wait for it to arrive. Last and most importantly, the bloodthirsty reputation of defensive carry practitioners as often depicted by anti-gunners is simply not justified, and this case makes that point yet again.

From Editor: This Is Not A Culture War

If gun-control advocates were honest, they would look at what really makes Americans safer, but they aren't interested in this. In reality, they're far more interested in something else.
