Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

Good guys at WalMart stop armed criminal H/T Wheelgun

This is what the media says never happens. Well it happened. ‘Hero’ customer kills gunman during wild rampage at Tumwater Walmart

The bad guy opened fire in Walmart, then he tried to carjack a car in the parking lot. The 1st guy refused to give up his car, and got shot. When the bad guy turned to a second car, he got stopped. With extreme prejudice.

The suspect then approached a second car and driver – and it was then that Adams saw one of the two armed customers jump into action and shoot the gunman dead.

“Those men who stood up, they are heroes to me,” says Chadwick.

The armed civilian who shot the gunman was later identified as a 47-year-old Oakville man. After shooting the suspect, he immediately grabbed his first aid kit from his car and rendered aid to the victim of the attempted carjacking. The victim was later airlifted to Harborview Medical Center, in critical condition.

Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

Forcing your way into people’s homes is not a smart move

Guns save lives. We say that over and over, and we provide a mountain of data to prove it, but some people refuse to see it that way. They look at the numbers and apparently read it as “Blah, blah, blah” or something. So we tend to share stories of people defending themselves to prove that it does happen and isn’t some clever manipulation of data.

You know, like this woman in South Carolina who killed an alleged attacker with a shotgun.

Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler said a Gaffney man was shot and killed during an alleged home invasion early Friday morning.

Fowler said a woman shot and killed Charles Shannon Alley, 41, of Tansi Trail after he forced his way into a home while armed and began fighting with another man in the house.

“According to witness statements Alley knocked on the door of a residence armed with a shotgun at 112 Piney Knob Drive in Gaffney about 3:25 a.m.,” Fowler said. “When a male answered the door, Alley allegedly pushed his way inside and began to fight with the resident while threatening to do harm to another male and female also present. While engaged in the altercation, Alley was allegedly shot in the head by the female resident.”

Tim Anthony, the homeowner, said when he opened the door, two men tried to force their way in.

“I went to crack the door open and they barged, at least two of them, barged through the door and knocked me through the wall,” Anthony said.

Anthony said his girlfriend fired two shots at Alley while they were struggling in the middle of the living room.

Once again, guns save lives!

If guns cause crime………….

Then explain this

While the rest of the country is engaged in heated debate over gun control, one Georgia town has had it figured out for decades.

Residents in Kennesaw, Georgia are required by local law to own a gun. Kennesaw Mayor Derek Easterling didn’t sugar coat his approval of the city ordinance that was passed in 1982.

Kennesaw is one of Georgia’s safest cities. When the gun law was enacted Kennesaw had only a few thousand residents, according to Fox 8 Cleveland, but today the local population is over 33,000 and has had only one murder in the last six years, and a violent crime rate at under 2 percent

Bad people are predatory, they loom for easy targets……………

It is called a holster idiot!

Good Freaking Grief!

Responsible gun owners know that if you’re going to carry directly on your person, you never forgo a holster. Tucking your firearm into the waistband of your pants, your belt or your pocket is, simply put, an accident waiting to happen.

Unfortunately, one Missouri gun owner never got the memo – or he did and just chose to ignore it.

The man was shopping at a University City grocery store with a loaded firearm tucked into the waistband of his jeans, sans holster. Since a waistband provides little to no support and fails to keep your weapon properly oriented, the handgun quickly began to slip down the man’s pants. In his attempt to keep the gun from falling to the floor – and with nothing protecting the trigger – the man accidentally discharged a single round…and shot himself right in the leg.
