Every once in a while, a shooting tragedy occurs, resulting in multiple injuries and deaths. These events are tragedies no matter where they occur and how many people are hurt. There is absolutely no excuse for them, and the perpetrators should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
These horrible shootings are often followed by liberals telling the world that guns should be eliminated. We’re also sure to hear politicians quickly grandstanding about their latest anti-gun legislation.
We’ve even seen instances where a president has lined up the families of victims while he gave a speech about gun violence and how our nation needs stricter gun control.
Good guy with gun equals bad guy without gun
What you never hear a liberal admit about this subject is the single most important aspect of the situation: if a law-abiding citizen carrying a gun had been on the scene, the carnage might have been much less. When a bad guy starts shooting, that’s the only thing that can stop him until authorities arrive, which is usually way too late.
Why is it so difficult for them to understand that a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun and save many lives and limit injuries? They just don’t get it. And they are actually naïve enough to think that laws against gun ownership will result in bad guys not having guns. Wow! I’ve got some swamp land in Florida I’d like to sell them.
Fortunately, sometimes good guys do stop the bad guys. Take the recent case of Carol Miracle, who was at a Circle K in Glendale, Arizona minding her own business. Suddenly a guy was pointing a gun to her head, trying to rob her.
Apparently he wasn’t excepting Ms. Miracle to have a gun. While he was demanding money, she pulled out her own gun and shot him. When police arrived, the assailant was rushed to the hospital, where he died.
What might have happened?
Now, we don’t know if this guy would have shot and killed Ms. Miracle if she had meekly turned her money over to him, or if she had refused to give him anything. He might have done just that to make sure there was not a witness to his crime.
He might have also shot and killed others at the store who saw it happen. But he didn’t, and it’s possible that the only reason he didn’t was because Ms. Miracle was carrying a loaded gun for her protection.
If law-abiding teachers had guns during school shootings, many more kids would probably be alive today. The same thing is true for shootings that have occurred at theaters, business offices and nightclubs.
But the liberals just don’t get it. They don’t understand that their attempts to eliminate guns would only make matters worse.
