The war against the Second Amendment is far from over.
Liberals want to deprive citizens from their lawful right to own a firearm. They claim that our Constitutional right to own a gun is what leads to so much firearm-related crime.
Yet they insult the many Americans who own guns legally and daily operate them in a safe manner.
The right to own a gun gives Americans the ability to protect themselves from harm. It prevents them from being dependent on the government for protection or support. And it frees them from being victims of criminals and terrorists.
Democrats ignore this reality and would rather have us all defenseless, further dependent on the state. But when the fur begins to fly, liberals are the last people ready to help.
Such was the case in a Texas bar when a man showed up, ready to kill.
Was it a liberal who came to the rescue? Hardly.
From NBC News:
When 48-year-old James Jones walked inside the Zona Caliente Sports Bar, started yelling and then allegedly shot and killed Cesar Perez — a 37-year-old restaurant manager who’d attempted to calm him down — Arlington police said witnesses were afraid they would be next.
In addition to the gun used to kill Perez, police say Jones had another semiautomatic pistol and two knives on him…
An armed “good Samaritan” — as the Arlington Police labeled him — happened to be eating at the restaurant with his wife. A concealed carry permit holder, he told her to get down on the ground and then shot Jones in the back.
It is clear from the evidence that this criminal was ready to take many lives. He killed the manager just for confronting him. Everyone else in the restaurant was in danger of being next.
What stopped this man from going on a rampage? The many gun-control laws recommended by liberals? Nope! The skills of an American citizen, who had a concealed carry permit. Without hesitation he used his legally-owned gun to take out the criminal.
Those who legally own firearms practice on a regular basis. They know the ins and outs of their guns and how to operate them safely. So when a crisis occurs, they are ready to jump into action, if they are needed.
And that man was desperately needed. According to NBC’s own firearm expert, many people would have died, had the Samaritan not acted.
“[T]his good Samaritan obviously had the ability to do what he did,” Kapelsohn added. “Who knows how many people would be dead if he had not acted?”
Time and again we hear about the shocking death toll from shooting incidents. Yet had there been just one person lawfully using a gun, the situations would have been different. Most terrorists and criminals expect citizens to be defenseless. They know most people don’t carry guns and cannot shoot back.
Do you think they’d be so quick to harm, if they knew someone would take them out? Of course not.
Yet liberals want to deprive you of the ability to protect yourself.
Makes sense, they rarely do anything to help Americans.
