An Armed Society is a Riotless Society

So, when Ferguson got the grand jury ruling they didn’t like, they showed how interested they were in justice by burning down the businesses of people that had nothing at all to do with it. Meanwhile, in the State of Arizona, people showed their solidarity with Ferguson by going to bed. While other major cities held protests, some of which ended up with minor looting, Arizona just did what Arizona does: Conducted business as usual. There was one small protest of about 60 people down in Tempe, close to Phoenix. They argued among themselves, broke into two groups, but then gave up and went home. The next day, businesses were fearlessly open as usual, people were buying early Christmas presents, people were getting ready for Thanksgiving and getting their turkeys. Hmmm…weren’t Phoenix and Tucson two of the major cities that all the Ferguson “direct action” groups listed as scenes of protest? Yet, both these cities pretty much ignored the call to action, as did the entire state. What happened?

*** and ***

It’s the individual armed citizen. People here work hard to build businesses. They put their lives into them and they’re not going to step aside and let someone torch their dreams in an agitator-sponsored temper tantrum and looting-fest masquerading as “outrage”. People here defend themselves, have the weapons to do so, and laws that make it possible. Rioters might make it past the Warlord of Phoenix, if they’re lucky. They might defy the Shogun of Arizona. But they will not make it past the armed citizens defending their homes and businesses. Everyone here knows this. They know a huge riot would become a mass suicide mission for the rioters. Protests happen and everyone is fine with that. But everyone knows there is a line that cannot be crossed—or else. Because it will not be tolerated and people won’t cower and wait for the government to save them. They will save themselves.

Examiner.com Texas woman shoots wanted serial robber, possible rapist; Story ignored by MSM DEFENSIVE GUN USE  APRIL 11, 2013  BY: JENNIFER CRUZ

Early Sunday morning, April 7, in Lumberton, Texas (http://www.examiner.com /topic/texas) three robbers kidnapped and robbed one woman, but when they moved on to rob two more women they were met with an unexpected surprise.

According to a report by 12 News Now (http://www.12newsnow.com/story/21902660/beaumont-police-arrest-man-they- say-is-responsible-for-robbery-spree) , one of the would-be victims brought their robbing spree to a halt when she shot one of them. The three robbers, identified as 21-year-old Scott Willis, Jr., 21-year-old Malik Washington, and 21-year-old Ariel Malveaux, all of Beaumont, have apparently been targeting women as victims of robberies since last month.

In the first robbery which happened on Sunday morning, the three abducted a woman at gunpoint, and forced her to drive to an ATM to withdraw cash. There has also been an unconfirmed report that she was sexually assaulted.

In the second robbery attempt, the three approached two women and demanded money. One of the women was able to retrieve her handgun and shot Willis in the abdomen, reportedly puncturing his liver. Willis is being held in the intensive care unit at Christus St. Elizabeth hospital where he is being treated for the gunshot wound. Upon his release, Willis will be charged with aggravated robbery. Washington and Malveaux are both being held by Lumberton police on aggravated robbery charges. Washington also faces a kidnapping charge.

One would think that a story of this woman’s courage and quick thinking which ultimately led to the capture of three violent serial robbers would be a big story that would catch the attention of mainstream media. However, it has not. At the time this article was published, there were only eight reports of this incident (https://www.google.com/#hl=en&sclient=psy- ab&q=woman+shoots+robber+lumberton+texas&oq=woman+shoots+robber+lumberton+texas& gs_l=hp.3…18800.21573.1.22579.10.10.0.0.0.6.872.3850.0j3j2j2j0j2j1.10.0…0.0…1c.1.8.psy-ab.boc1zkCf2Rw&pbx=1& bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.45107431,d.b2I&fp=f541d26e5940a762&biw=1366&bih=664) , all which include local media outlets, local conservative political websites, a forum, a blog and an individual’s Facebook page, who happens to be the brother-in-law of the first woman who was robbed.

However, when a 4-year-old accidentally shoots a 6-year-old, the media is sure to exploit it everywhere, with more than 17 pages (https://www.google.com/#q=4+year+old+shot&hl=en&ei=hUFnUfjlCoeU2wWygIH4CQ&start=0&sa=N&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.& bvm=bv.45107431,d.b2I&fp=f541d26e5940a762&biw=1366&bih=664) of stories covering the incident, including many mainstream media outlets.

In addition, the big story reported by local media seems to be that the police caught these criminals, giving very little, if any, credit to the woman who actually shot one of them, which ultimately resulted in the apprehension of all three.

Is there bias in media reporting which compliments an anti-gun agenda? Voice your opinions below.

Sure there IS a big anti-gun bias.

“Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose

“God created men and women, but Sam Colt made them equal!” Quote inspired by Sam Colt

Wishing that the world wasn’t a dangerous place will do nothing but increase the body count.

Capital punishment doesn’t seem to deter bad behavior, armed victims seem to put a big crimp in it. Not mention a big hole in a vital body part. I recommend that women aim just below the center of mass. Let the recoil bring it up to the kill zone.

If a kick there hurts, imagine getting it blown away.

That should solve the problem very quickly.

Note that not everyone has to be packing. Just enough so that it turns a “sure thing” into “risky business”.
