I found that a site, AKDart, has a listing of cases in which people were saved by guns. Of course, since those stories do not match the narrative, they are not covered by the national media. So, here is a small selection of links from AKDart…
Georgia College Student Saves Himself, Ten Friends By Shooting At Masked Attackers, Killing One. But no, he shouldn’t have had an “evil gun”…
College Student Shoots, Kills Home Invader. A group of college students said they are lucky to be alive and they’re thanking the quick-thinking of one of their own. Police said a fellow student shot and killed one of two masked me who burst into an apartment. Channel 2 Action News reporter Tom Jones met with one of the students to talk about the incident. “Apparently, his intent was to rape and murder us all,” said student Charles Bailey.
Grandma With Gun Halts Store Robbery. A gun-carrying grandmother in Milwaukee foiled an attempted robbery when she pulled a firearm on the suspect as he grabbed for her grocery store cash register. Ernestine Aldana, 48, was behind the counter at the San Ignacio Market when a man in a dark hat pulled a knife on her and attempted to rob the store register, police said.
CBS Actually Covers Gun Self-Defense Case Promoted By NRA; ABC, NBC Punt. On Friday’s [1/11/2013] CBS This Morning, Bill Plante refreshingly spotlighted how firearms are used to protect the lives of ordinary Americans. Plante noted how the National Rifle Association “Tweeted a story… about Melinda Herman, a Georgia woman who shot an intruder in self-defense as she waited with her two children in a closet…. She fired at the man multiple times with a .38 caliber handgun.” The two other Big Three morning shows failed to mention this story during their coverage of the current gun control debate.
School Shooting in Tennessee That National Media Did Not Report. I am sure that no one outside of our immediate region has ever heard the story, because the only person who was shot — and killed — was the gunman. These types of stories don’t fit the narrative of those who want “gun-free zones” and so are ignored by the national media.
Never bring a cattle prod to a gun fight.
Police: Fla. clerk’s gun beats thief’s cattle prod. Authorities say a Florida Panhandle man has been arrested after he tried to rob a convenience store with a cattle prod but was thwarted by a clerk with a gun.
Armed businessman confronts thieves in the act, deputies say. A 64-year-old man armed with a shotgun caught two burglary suspects in the act Monday [1/7/2013] and detained the men until deputies arrived, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office reported. The owner of West Crane Services on Newport Avenue told deputies his business was burglarized last week, so he staked out the property at night anticipating the thieves would return.
Homeowner shoots at two men breaking into his Vallejo residence. At about 11:45 a.m. the man found the two men breaking into his home in the 200 block of Windsor Court, police said. The man then armed himself with a weapon and took a shot at the suspects, who fled the house in a champagne four-door late 1990s Cadillac, police said.
Concealed Carry Holder Teaches Armed Robber Why It’s a Bad Idea to Pull a Gun on a Dad. A father in Columbus, Ohio was forced to defend himself and his 2-month-old son when a man pulled a gun and attempted to rob him on Monday night [1/7/2013]. Luckily, Kelby Smith, 34, owns a permit to carry a concealed handgun and was able to shoot the robber.
Armed Florida senior changes would-be robber’s life with legal handgun. Here’s some more news for the media gatekeepers to bury, since it runs strongly counter to their preferred gun-control narrative: a 71-year-old Florida man used his lawfully carried firearm to thwart an armed robbery at an Internet cafe in Ocala, Florida.
Girls With Guns. In October 2012, 12-year-old Kendra St. Clair was also at home alone when a home invader kicked in her back door. Her mother advised her over the phone to hide in the bathroom. Luckily, the preteen grabbed her parents’ handgun first — and shot the intruder in the shoulder. “When I had the gun, I didn’t think I was actually going to have to shoot somebody,” she told ABC News. “I think it’s going to change me a whole lot, knowing that I can hold my head up high and nothing can hurt me anymore.” Now that’s girl power.
Boy Uses AR15 To Stop A Home Invasion. Bottom line, banning the AR15 and its variants is banning perhaps the single most effective weapon for home defense. That is particularly true for women and teens. Keep that in mind as the left tries to disarm America in the wake of Sandy Hook.
Mother Hiding with Kids Shoots Intruder. As I’ve mentioned before, while I’m a huge supporter of the Second Amendment, I’m no fan of guns and sincerely wish that owning one (or three) wasn’t a necessary responsibility, especially when you have a family. Here’s another reason why that’s the case.
So, get over there for more. And, I will end this post as I did the others…
The liberals would prefer that these people be dead. That they lived is bad for the narrative.
