Ah, self-defense!

Good guys with guns, self-defense, these things really tigger the gun grabbers

What were they thinking? This is Texas, after all. Homeowner shot alleged burglars in southeast Bexar County.

If you break into homes you will eventually find an armed homeowner. If you are breaking into homes in Texas, your odds probably increase.

SAPD was initially called for shots fired and a burglary in progress at a home near Stuart Road. Two suspects allegedly fled the scene.

A few hours later around 3:45 am, a man and woman showed up to the Mission Trails Baptist Hospital with gunshot wounds. Hospital workers noticed bullet holes in their car and notified police.

Self-Defense is a good thing. Guns are simply tools, which can be used for good or bad purposes. Yet the left rejects this basic truth and continues to pursue foolish measures

Yet in San Antonio, it seems the city council is considering similar regulations for gun stores.

A public safety initiative aimed at reducing gun violence has City Council members divided.

District 6 Councilman Greg Brockhouse pointed to a yearly decline in gun violence in the Alamo City as part of the reason he opposes regulations.

“The problem, though, with regulating gun sales or gun control, is: We don’t need it,” Brockhouse said. “Let’s not penalize responsible gun owners and gun sellers and make their lives more difficult.”

Under the proposal, gun shops wouldn’t be allowed to open within 1,000 feet of a school or church, and they would only be allowed to open in areas designated for general commercial use. Existing shops would be grandfathered in.

District 2 Councilman William “Cruz” Shaw supports the proposal.

“We aren’t trying to take guns away from lawful gun owners. Our intentions are solely to address gun violence by looking into any and all possible local angles,” Shaw said in a statement.

Tom Knighton describes the stupidity of  such an ordinance

This won’t be about taking guns out of people’s hands, but it is about gun control. Frankly, it’s a brain-dead way to combat violence, even if you somehow believed gun control somehow reduced crime. I mean, does Shaw mean to tell me that if a store is a few hundred feet to the left, those who may use illicit means to buy a gun through legal channels would suddenly be unable to find the store?

This is typical of the mindset of so many. Just do something, anything, whether or not is will accomplish anything at all.
