As we all know firearms are used over 2 million times a year to prevent a crime. However these successes are rarely reported by the media (it isn’t sensational and doesn’t fit their narrative). Here is one that was reported. We really need national reciprocity and crime will continue to go down as it has over the last 20 years where murders have been reduced by 50% because of increase in concealed carry. Continue reading
Actually, a good guy with an AR-15 stopped an attack with a knife and most likely saved a life. On Monday, February 26, a resident of an apartment complex on Harbor Drive in Oswego, Illinois attacked a person with a knife.
The victim is lucky that his neighbor, Dave Thomas, leapt into action after he saw a lot of blood all over the hallway. He confronted the perp who immediately stopped the attack and surrendered. Somehow he managed to flee, probably in fear of his own life, but the police were able to quickly catch him. Continue reading
A mother and her daughter joined up to protect themselves and their store from a person who entered the store with a shotgun and demanded their money. Tyrone Lee, who is 36, probably didn’t expect to get any resistance.
The mother, Tina Ring, responded by retrieving her firearm and shot the perp several times. He also shot at her but missed. Despite being hit, he attacks the mother, wrestles the gun out of her hands and pistol whips her.
The daughter, Ashley Lee, shoots him and he flees from the store. Continue reading
Four men made the mistake of choosing the wrong house in a burglary attempt. Three of the four alleged burglars with hoodies and backpacks approached the door of the home while another one hid in some bushes. A woman inside called the sheriff. Someone who just happened to be going by also called and reported the three men with one in the bushes.
The woman answered the door with a firearm in hand. Even though one of them probably had a large knife, they might have thought of the old adage “never bring a knife to a gunfight”. They ran, hopped in a white SUV and hightailed it into the sunset. (I know, it was around 10 am, but the “into the sunset” definitely goes with “gunfight” and hightailed”.) Continue reading
Jennifer Wertz used to work at the Circle K gas station in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A robber armed with a firearm threatened to shoot Jennifer. She pulled a revolver from her pocket, cocked it and fired, striking 23-year-old Ferron Mendez in the chest. This ended his attack.
Jennifer told FOX6:
I grabbed my gun from my pocket, I cocked it, and I shot. I’m sick and tired of being a sitting duck… Robberies have been going on like this for the past few weeks. They [her employer] have done nothing to protect me. And I felt the need to protect myself.
Circle K suspended her for two weeks for saving her own life and then fired her. They have a policy that states no employees may carry firearms for self-protection. She had told her employer that they needed to do something to help protect her as robberies have escalated in her area.
Jennifer’s mother set up a GoFundMe page for $20,000 to help her daughter support her family while she recovers from the trauma of this attempted robbery. Well, a LOT of people support her decision to carry a firearm. As of this writing, the donations are $71,690 in just 8 days!
So a good gal with a gun stopped the perp and saved her own life.
The perp is expected to live, so let’s pray no lawyer is greedy enough to take on the perp with a frivolous lawsuit.
