The debate about whether or not security guards in schools should carry guns has slowed considerably since the Sandy Hook days.
But the question remains largely unanswered and ignored by Progressives: Why shouldn’t civilians carry firearms for protective purposes?
To a liberal, keeping guns out of the hands of everyone will help all Americans live together in harmony and “grow apple trees and honey bees and snow white turtle doves.”
Reality though (that which Progressives have no capability to grasp) dictates that legal gun owners are not and have never been part of the horribly disturbing statistics of accidental shootings in America.
The damning part for Leftists is that they can’t seem to equate illegally used weaponry by gangs and murderers with the criminal element.
But the facts are clear: legally owned weapons deter more crime than cause it – by a huge margin.
Recently, another such case occurred in Texas when a bar owner was shot to death by an unstable patron who happened to be carrying an illegal firearm.
“A concealed carry owner who had been hanging out Thursday evening with his wife at a Texas sports bar – a location where guns are usually banned – leaped into action after a customer who was behaving oddly reportedly opened fire on the bar manager.
According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the altercation began about 6:45 p.m., when a deranged man later identified as James Jones, 48, entered the Zona Caliente Sports Bar and Grill in Arlington and ‘started yelling and making incoherent, strange statements.’
When bar manager Cesar Perez, 37, approached Jones in an attempt to calm him down, the disturbed patron pulled out a gun and fatally shot him.
It was at this moment that the unnamed good Samaritan retrieved his concealed weapon and fired at Jones, killing him on the spot.
When police arrived, they were able to take statements from the crowd who had witnessed the incident and, to a person, corroborated the concealed carry owner’s version of the story.
As in many other stories throughout the nation, criminals who are left to rein themselves in when it comes to being judicious with weapons is an oxymoron.
The woman who bravely fought off the monster who was raping her daughter? Wouldn’t she have been MUCH better off if she had been armed?
Well, we’ll never know, but we do know this: Had there not been the Good Samaritan at this bar, more people would be dead today.
