The left’s answer to bad people with guns is to ban law abiding people from having guns thus insuring that only bad people will be in possession of firearms. Criminals do not obey the law, they do not submit to background checks and they do not register their illegally owned firearms. The answer from those who violate their oaths is for you to call 911 and then pray a person with a gun gets there before you are dead.
In reality, the police show up to draw a chalk line around a dead body. If you are armed they draw that line around the bad guy. In the liberal world, they draw that line around YOU.
I have already documented how the police were called (via 911 no less) within a minute of the Newtown shooter shooting his way into the school. All the victims were dead within 5 minutes and the police arrived after that. They got to draw chalk lines around the victims.
Fortunately, there are still states in this union that believe in freedom and uphold the Constitution. Fortunately there are states where the words shall not be infringed have meaning. As an aside, Maryland is not one of them. The Communist governor and his comrades in the legislature have violated their oaths and made law abiding citizens of the state into one of two things; criminals or prey.
Back on point. The great state of Texas is one that believes in upholding and protecting the God given right to keep and bear arms. One police officer is alive, and thankful, that this is the case.
There was a dispute in a neighborhood (a trailer park at that) about dogs relieving themselves on other people’s lawns. This has been an ongoing issue and it came to a head when the neighbor whose property was under doggie assault (Charles Conner) got a gun and murdered the dog’s owners (David House and Iris Valentina) and shot their dogs. Someone called the police and the responding officer (SGT Steven Means) was not able to exit his car before he was under fire from Conner. The shooter was well protected from return fire because he was behind a tree. The officer was trying to keep from getting killed by hiding behind his car.
It turns out that a neighbor (Vic Stacy) who was home watching TV saw what was going on and after watching he assessed that the officer needed help. He had a direct shot, albeit at a distance, at the shooter. Stacy fired a shot and hit Conner knocking him down. He fired several other shots and SGT Means was able to shot him as well.
More police officers arrived (well after all the shooting had taken place) and placed Stacy in handcuffs. SGT Means explained what happened and Stacy was released.
No charges will be filed (who would even contemplate that) and Stacy is being hailed as a hero though he shuns that idea. He agonized over getting involved and had some trouble sleeping after. In other words, he is not some Wild West zealot who wants to kill. He saw an officer in distress and he intervened.
Let’s look at the facts. The nut job Conner murdered two people BEFORE police arrived. He then held an officer at bay placing that officer in grave danger (is there any other kind) and backup did not arrive until AFTER the nut had been dispatched with the help of a private citizen. The police were not even there in time to help one of their own even though the original officer responded to a call for shots fired.
The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. The state of Texas is a place where the rights of good guys are not infringed upon.
SGT Means is probably very happy he is not in a state where the law abiding are disarmed or he might not be alive today.
One can either be protected or prey.
Liberals want to make us prey. Communists like Maryland’s gun grabbing Governor, Martin O’Moron, do not care about the law abiding and they don’t care about the Constitution. They know what is best for you and what will make you safe. And if you listen to them they will tell you just that.
If they can get their voices past their army of ARMED body guards…
Never surrender, never submit.
