Citizen with a gun saves cop’s life

Don’t mess with the cops in Texas. The citizens might not like it. 

“It appears that law enforcement and the citizens of Brown County owe a debt of gratitude toward this man for his courage to act,” explained Grubbs.

 “It appears that law enforcement and the citizens of Brown County owe a debt of gratitude toward this man for his courage to act,” explained Grubbs. Sheriff Grubbs also noted that some may take this incident as an opportunity to promote gun control; however he felt it is an example of importance of the right to bear arms.

“Had this citizen not had a gun, this could have been a whole lot worse,” said Grubbs.

 The citizen went back to his trailer, got his .357 Magnum and hit the shooter at least once, probably multiple times.

Old men should be dangerous.
