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.

“I’m just a citizen tryin’ to help an officer out.”

Old men should be dangerous.

This is NOT a defensive gun use!

You know how it goes. You’re 43 times more likely to kill yourself or a family member than to kill a criminal.

We know that the Kellerman study is garbage, but it you can study it for an example of anti-gun thinking. You see immediately what they chose as their metric, actual dead bodies. That means the gun grabbers believe that unless you’ve got an actual dead criminal bleeding out on your linoleum, you don’t have a valid Defensive Gun Use (DGU). In their minds, it’s not a DGU if a person pulls a gun on a criminal and the criminal suddenly remembers a pressing engagement elsewhere.

So, in their minds, this is not a DGU

There are certain people criminals should not mess with: martial arts experts, superheroes and Ruby Hodge of Blenheim.

When two would-be burglars broke into the 89-year-old widow’s house Monday on S.C. Highway 38 just outside of Blenheim, they probably didn’t expect to find Hodge and her .38-caliber pistol waiting for them.

I want to quote the whole thing, but it makes for such entertaining reading that you should just click through and read it. Please, I’m begging you.

It has everything. Little old lady with a gun, left to her by her dead husband. Two full grown adult criminals with extensive records. Sheriffs jumping for joy. It even has the “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” button.

There’s one thing that it is missing, however. No dead criminals. In fact, no dead anyone. And to the gun grabbers, this isn’t a DGU.

Scrape some cash together for a guy who needs it

I posted about a guy in Des Moines who spent about 4 months in jail waiting for trial in a self defense shooting. They stuck him with such a huge bail amount that he couldn’t possibly pay it. He was evicted from his apartment and everything inside was put on the curb to be stolen. He got exactly the sort of treatment you’d expect in a state that doesn’t have a Castle Law.
Here’s your chance to give him a little something to get him back on his feet.
Sitting on my countertop, between both of the Netflix envelopes, is an envelope with a check for Mr Lewis. All three will go out in the mail Monday morning. Please consider doing the same.

Free gun with a truck in Charlotte

In a story sure to give the gun grabbers a screaming case of the hives, a Charlotte area Ford dealer is offering a free Remington rifle with the purchase of a truck.
Watch this video. The free rifle angle is a hook, but that’s not what this story is all about

This is what Michael Bane is always on about with his “Gun Culture 2.0” thing. The rifle, with its implied purpose being for hunting is the free giveaway. The real growth, according to those actually selling guns for a living, is in personal defensive weapons, like pistols.
Watch the video, and check out the smiles on their faces as they display their freshly minted NC Concealed Handgun Permits.
When random ordinary citizens are carrying guns, and they get sympathetic treatment out of the local TV news, you know that we are winning.
If you live in or near Charlotte, and want both a truck and a rifle, Keith Hawthorne Ford is your place.
