The Cult of Gun Control always say they are not against us being able to protect ourselves. They also say, constantly, that they do not want to “take our guns”. But anytime an armed citizen uses a weapon in self-defense, they disregard it, or play it off as something that never happens or my favorite, they insist that an average person could never use a firearm to stop a potential mass shooter. Watts, one of the biggest mouthpieces for the Cult of Gun Control has blocked me, and most every other pro-gun person on Twitter, tweeted this about the recent Oklahoma case where men took out a bad guy with a gun
Hey @NRA – The two men who got guns from their cars to take out the Oklahoma shooter were: 1) A former police officer and current security guard, 2) A member of the National Guard for two decades and who served in Afghanistan.
Not. Average. Civilians. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2018/05/25/armed-oklahoma-juan-carlos-nazario-restaurant-gunman/645607002/ …
Why does Watts think these men are not average citizens? Tom Knighton explains
Hmmmmm. Fascinating, Shannon.
Please, tell us more.
For example, tell us all about how the police aren’t citizens, or how the National Guard trains its troops for active shooter situations with privately owned handguns.
Of course, let’s not forget that police officers have also been criticized for their accuracy in shootouts before. It’s almost like folks like Shannon are trying to have their cake and eat it too. Tsk, tsk.
Let’s be clear here. Regardless of where Juan Nazario, the former police officer, got his training, he wasn’t a police officer anymore. Brian Whittle wasn’t on duty with the National Guard either.
No, both were living as private citizens, bound by all the same laws you and I are. Nazario was kicking back after work, trying to relax when the shooting started.
What happened then is exactly the kind of thing Shannon is trying to pretend doesn’t really happen. The two men were required to become the “good guy with a gun.” So they did.
Yes, both men previously served in roles that required some amount of firearms training, that’s never been our point about civilian firearm ownership. Our point rests in the fact that both men, despite neither currently enjoying any protected status from gun carry laws, had access to guns. Period.
They could rush to their cars to get their firearms because they had their guns in their cars. Plain and simple.
People like Shannon Watts would have seen both men disarmed and as a result, people would have died in that bar. Possibly a lot of people. If not in the bar, then the killer might have found somewhere else to go and found more targets. Who knows how it would have played out?
Good old Shannon Watts, always quick to reach into her bago if stupidity
