AR-15 saves college studentsThe would-be burglars fled without a shot being fired.  Just the presence of the AR-15 was enough to deter the criminals who were intent on possibly killing the students.

Although the students were grateful for the invaders defeat, the AR-15 owner did not have time to load it.  If he had needed to actually fire the competition rifle, he would have been out of luck.

Man Who Does Not Believe In Guns Now Views Concealed Permit Holders as Angels

On January 11th, 2012, Kevin Dorsey walked to his car from a bar near the picturesque Hermann Park area in Houston, Texas.  Before he closed the door, a man with a ski mask shoved a gun into Kevin’s chest and robbed him of his car keys, wallet and cell phone, then ran away.

Christopher Hutchins, the robber, thought he got away with his crime, until a couple of people who had concealed weapons permits drove by, asked Kevin what happened and then started to chase the robber.  A gunfight ensued and the robber was hit.

This was not Christopher’s lucky day, as he jumped over a fence to escape and was attacked and held by a large German Shepherd until police arrived.  The perp was taken to a hospital.

Kevin Dorsey was quoted as saying “I don’t believe in guns. I don’t own a gun. I’m totally at the mercy of my saviors. They obviously sent two angels to help me. These people protected me when I couldn’t protect myself.”

Even anti-gun people appreciate being saved by law-abiding citizens who are permitted to carry concealed firearms.
