13 Times in February Armed Citizens Intervened to Stop Crimes


The fundamental right to keep and bear arms is a vital tool safeguarding individual liberty.

Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Last month, we documented some extraordinary examples from January of armed citizens relying on their Second Amendment rights to protect themselves and others.

We pointed out that these were average, everyday Americans who were just going about their lives. They did not go looking for evil but were nonetheless prepared to deal with the evil that found them.

February has produced even more evidence that the fundamental right to keep and bear arms is not an anachronism that no longer deserves constitutional protection, but a vital tool safeguarding individual liberty.

Studies routinely indicate that every year, Americans use their firearms in defense of themselves or others between 500,000 and 2 million times. Very few of these defensive gun uses receive national publicity—if they receive publicity at all...

And yet there are some Republicans that still can't grasp the simple concept of "Shall not infringe"
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God

THE ESTABLISHMENT IS THE PROBLEM...NOT THE SOLUTION

Republicans Don't Need A Back Bench...They Need a BACKBONE!

File it under "Articles Lindsey Graham needs to read" as well.

Jesse Watters used the clip from the Tennessee gun store incident on The Five today. Probably the only instance of this being reported on TV. Juan Williams got the vapors.  :silly:

And those are only the ones the police were contacted on.

The real numbers are doubtless Way higher.
My 'Viking Hunter' High Adventure Alternate History Series is FREE, ALL 3 volumes, at most ebook retailers including Ibooks, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and more.

In Vol 2 the weapons come out in a winner take all war on two fronts.

Vol 3 opens with the rigged murder trial of the villain in a Viking Court under Viking law to set the stage for the hero's own murder trial.

One time on some internet forum debating the subject of citizens with guns, I informed some liberals that average citizens use guns  thousands of times annually for self defense.
And wouldn't you know, there were a number of liberals who could not wrap their tiny minds around the idea that average citizens could use guns to defend themselves or others.
A number simply refused to believe that could be possible.
That's how deep anti-gun propaganda has been ingrained in many people.
