7 Mass Shootings That Were Stopped By Lawful Gun Owners
Written by: Daniel Jennings  Current Events December 3, 2016

3. An unidentified man saved the lives of several people inside the Farah Barber Shop in West Philadelphia, Pa., by shooting a 40-year-old gunman on March 22, 2015, police told NBC 10. Several people, including children, were inside the shop when the man took out a gun and opened fire. Fortunately, a passer-by pulled out his gun, ran into the shop and shot the gunman before he could kill anyone.

“The person who responded was a legal gun permit carrier,” Philadelphia Police Captain Frank Llewellyn told NBC 10. “He responded and I guess he saved a lot of people in there.”

*** end quote ***

“I guess” is pretty wishy washy. It would seem obvious that he did save a lot of lives.

*** begin quote ***

6. An armed likely prevented a shooting rampage at Bonnie’s Food and Spirits, a bar in Plymouth, Pa., in September 2012. William Allabaugh shot a man in the head after being asked to leave the establishment. Mark Kytor stopped Allabaugh by drawing his gun and shooting him. Kytor may have saved many lives because police found an extra clip of ammunition in Allabaugh’s pants, The Citizens Voice reported.

*** end quote ***

Typically inaccurate reporting. I would assume the shooter had an extra magazine, not a clip. I guess it’s too much to expect the news media to at least be a little familiar with the difference. “This is my rifle. This is my gun. This is for fighting.” 

*** begin quote ***

So, yes, guns can save lives and armed citizens can prevent mass shootings.

*** end quote ***

When seconds count, the police are minutes away. WE, THE PEOPLE are the FIRST RESPONDERS.

GUN: A defensive firearm, quickly accessible in the living room … …

Elderly Hamilton Man Shoots Robbery Suspect
By Bob Irwin AmmoLand.com
November 19, 2016

*** begin quote ***

USA – The Journal News in Hamilton, Ohio reports 11-02- 2016 an 88-year-old resident had just finished washing his car in the front yard of his home Tuesday night when a man and a woman cornered him.

They demanded money and forced him into the house.

Once inside the victim said they hit him in the face and in the chest. He thought he was going to be severely beaten. The male robber taunted him “You don’t have a gun, do you?”

*** and ***

A defensive firearm, quickly accessible in the living room, saved this victim’s life. One would not expect any 88 year old to survive a physical beat down. Hopefully there is enough physical evidence available to allow a quick apprehension. The cowardly animals that attack such elderly victims really need to be off the street.

The victim was apparently cool, calm and experienced enough to intend a non-lethal shot. Amazing! The criminal’s comment about the victim indicates that he was perhaps the burglar who stole it previously.

He obviously didn’t feel comfortable taking a life. Many would argue that was a mistake but it’s unfair to second guess victims who were in the situation. It was a choice that is only his to make.

*** end quote ***

One can never know for sure what we would do in that circumstance.

I’d like to think I could be that cool under pressure.

I’m unaware of any instructor who teaches anything but shoot for the center of mass.

I’d agree that these two leggett varmints need to be put down quickly before they kill someone else. Like a bear that kills a human get euthanized. These two criminals may have learned to kill their victims. 

Sitting here on my couch, as a pro-life little L libertarian, I’d have shot both for the center of mass. If for no other reason than to save their next victim’s life.

So sad to have to say that, but that victim’s life is worth saving.

GUNS: HRC is coming for the guns. Molon labe!

Hillary Clinton: “Reasonable” to Require Guns to be Unusable at Home
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2016

*** begin quote **

The candidate who claimed politicians “need both a public and a private position” on policy issues demonstrated that tendency Wednesday night in the final presidential debate in a desperate bid for damage control on a statement she made in a private meeting with wealthy donors.

That earlier statement was simple, uncomplicated, and utterly damning to anyone who believes in the Second Amendment. Hillary Clinton told the very people who she depends on to fund her political ambitions: “the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.”

As a Yale-educated attorney, Clinton knew exactly what she was saying when she made that remark. But it doesn’t take a lawyer to understand the contempt it demonstrates for the right to keep and bear arms.

*** and ***

First, the District’s ban didn’t just require safe storage to prevent access by toddlers. It made possessing a loaded, usable firearm in the home – including for self-defense – a crime. The crime did not require proof of access by children or even proof that children were present in the home. Clinton’s answer also seemed suspiciously coincidental with a recent, dubious media blitz on firearm accidents among children.

Document 7

St. George Tucker, Blackstone’s Commentaries 1:App. 300
1803

This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction. 

*** end quote ***

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

GUNS: “SIX TIME weapon offender”?

Why Do I Carry? Because Thugs Like These Will Shoot You For Making Eye Contact

*** begin quote ***

Both are repeat gun offenders, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson confirmed, and both were out on parole at the time of the killing.

Speaking about Darwin, Johnson said he is a six-time weapon offender who was jailed in 2013 for six years for another gun crime but released on parole in February.

*** end quote ***

Excuse me, “SIX TIME weapon offender”?

Are you kidding me!

On parole.

Argh!

If I was President, then I’d direct my Attorney General to report to me on how many “felons in possession” were put in jail last month!

We have quotas for traffic tixs, why not for gun crimes.

Instead of hassling honest gun owners, let’s get the dangerous felons off the streets.

Let’s start protecting the public.

Argh!

GUNS: The medals in six consecutive Olympic Games were an “inconvenient truth”?

Muzzled!

SAN GABRIEL, Calif.—Only two athletes in history have won medals in six consecutive Olympic Games.

Only two.

Let me put this in perspective. There are about 13,000 Olympians, both summer, and winter, during each four-year cycle. Since 1896, when the modern Games began, there have been 184,869 Olympians. So we’re talking about something that happens .001 percent of the time, which is just one click above…never.

*** and ***

The other six-in-six Olympian is a woman from Southern California. She should have been asked to carry the flag at the closing ceremonies in Rio. I have nothing but respect for Simone Biles and her five medals in gymnastics, but this sixth medal in six Olympic Games was not only a once-in-a-century achievement, it was also accomplished by a 37-year-old woman who was fighting injuries, who was struggling against decades of sexism in her sport’s Olympic organization, who has to train by herself while raising a 3-year-old son, and who had to learn a whole new sport halfway through her medal run because the Olympics decided only men could compete in her preferred event.

*** end quote ***

The liberal media is so biased AGAINST guns that they have perverted their value to humanity.

“God made men and women; Sam colt made them equal.” — Unknown

We’re the weakest, hairless, and in some ways the stupidest animal in the food chain.

And, guns make us safe from the predators — both four legged and two legged.

(Some of the two legged ones are politicians and bureaucrats who kill us.)

So how do we change the current “thinking” — or lack there of — on self-defense and the RKBA?

GUNS: Gun Prohibition will be done like Drug Prohibition

Indeed. Any constitutional scholars out there who have a different point of view?

I am NOT  “constitutional scholar”; nor do I play one on TV.

That being said … … …

Unfortunately, the ATF makes the diktats that take guns away. There was a Constitutional Amendment to have alcohol prohibition. BUT NONE was required to have drug prohibition. Why should guns be any different than drugs?

The only defense is for juries to nullify on non-violent drug and gun cases. That’s what ended alcohol prohibition.

GUNS: Gooferment Skrules are idiotic too

So my 9th grade son is taking AP government and his coy teacher says she won’t reveal her political leanings…but then gives it away with her idiotic opinion of the 2nd amendment is being used wrong because it means only people in a militia can have guns. Sigh.

So in providing my son with the basis for an argument to proffer to her as to why that is wrong it suddenly dawned on me how truly absurd that position is. A militia by definition must be armed. An unarmed militia is like an orchestra with no instruments. Why would you create an amendment to protect a right that is implied in the nature of the thing. It would be like guaranteeing all doctors the right to keep and bear scalpels, or fireman the right to keep and bear hoses.

*** end quote ***

We have to de-federalize the military and get back to state militias and troops under the control of their governors and funded by the individual States. 

Military Industrial Complex, that Ike warned us about, leads to a military run amok.

Argh!
