People who want to take away our right to own and carry guns don’t like these types of stories reported. But they happen more often than we think, probably because the mainstream media doesn’t like to report on them.
In March 2017, a police officer named Ed Andersson was being beaten by an assailant after being shot in the shoulder along a dark and desolate interstate highway in Youngtown, Arizona.
The attacker had been shooting at passing vehicles and had already injured one person, a woman who later died from her injuries.
The state trooper feared for his life as he was being beaten. But suddenly he heard two gunshots and his attacker lay dead near him.
Fortunately for the officer, a motorist with a gun named Thomas Yoxall saw what was happening, jumped out of his car and shot the assailant, once in the chest and once in the head.
The officer required surgery and 100 stiches and staples to treat his injuries, but he survived, thanks to the gun-toting motorist.
Bad guys will always find a way to get a gun and use it for evil purposes. Taking guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens is not the answer to this problem. In fact, it’s a sure way to leave innocent victims in a helpless situation.
