Armed good Samaritan comes to the aid of purse-snatching victim | khou.com Houston

This lady opens her car door, grabs the woman’s purse and they reverse. While they’re trying to reverse, the lady is holding on to her purse still, chasing them all the way to the middle.”

That’s when a perfect stranger intervened. He happened to be in his car in the parking lot when it happened.

“And that good Samaritan came out, drew his weapon and scared them. And that’s when he pulled them out of the car.”

Quite honestly, I’m shocked to see it covered this way. Keep in mind, KHOU is owned by Gannett. The same company that owns the New York Journal News which published an interactive map of New York gun owners complete with names and addresses in 2012.  The bottom line however is that we have a great example of a good guy with a gun and a good use of a gun in which no shots were fired and no one got hurt. It is suspected that this happens far more often than is reported. After all, if no one gets hurt and the attempt to do harm is thwarted, the police may never respond even if called.

Missouri Senate To Consider Bill That Requires Parents To Report Gun Ownership To School

This act requires a parent or guardian to notify a school district, or the governing body of a private or charter school, that he or she owns a weapon within 30 days of enrolling the child in school or becoming the owner of a weapon. The written notification only needs to include the names of the parent and any child attending the school and the fact that the parent owns a weapon.

Read the full bill here.

These people are nucking futs! Seriously? It’s oppression to require an ID to vote but, if I own a gun or consider owning a gun, I have to notify the school under threat of a fine? Whose being oppressed again? Don’t think this sort of thing won’t come to Texas if the likes of Wendy Davis gets elected governor.

Female store clerk shoots and kills would-be robber : News : NorthwestOhio.com

“Just think if she didn’t have that weapon, what could have happened to her. This could be another innocent person dead for no reason,” say local resident via Female store clerk shoots and kills would-be robber : News : NorthwestOhio.com.

Incidents in which law abiding citizens successfully defend themselves against violent criminal action occur far more often than the media and many who oppose to the right to bear arms would have you believe. It looks like December Long, 29, of Toledo, Ohio either knew this or learned very quickly on November 2. According to WNWO, an NBC News Affiliate.

Long was working as a clerk at a Toledo Stop & Ro…err…Stop & Go when Christopher Shockley, 28, a local half-way house resident, entered the story at approximately 9pm and attempted to rob the Stop & Ro…err…Go at gunpoint. Details are a little sketchy but according police, Shockley shot Long in the abdomen. Long produced her own gun and returned fire. Long’s bullet was placed more effectively and Shockley was found DRT (dead right there).

Offering commentary that is somewhat unusual for police departments, rather than admonishing Long and telling civilians they should simply be good victims, Toledo Police Public Information Officer Joe Hellerman said, “He came in to do the armed robbery. It turned into a gun fight…” and warned others to think twice before committing an offense because, “You never know if that clerk behind the counter has a gun.”

One local resident, cited only as Jose, went so far as to praise Ms. Long saying, “Well I would thank her honestly. That could have happened to someone else, and what if they didn’t have a gun.”

Citing shootings, Obama says must ‘go back at’ gun-control push – Yahoo News

Same $#it, different day…Pardon my French. The President has announced his intention to redouble his gun-control efforts. Never mind that most of this country’s most tragic multiple shootings have a disturbing tendency to happen, more often than not, in jurisdictions with all the restrictions and bans the President, the Brady Campaign, and others demand while simultaneously claiming to respect the 2nd Amendment. The fact is, they’ll never be “happy” until all guns are banned so they can turn their attention to your thoughts, Oh wait, they are already trying to control your thoughts and redefine the First Amendment as a privilege only for those they believe worthy..
