So, no one, ever uses an AR-15 for self-defense?

Don’t tell this family that lie

Another gun control talking point has been debunked after a pregnant woman, who remains unnamed, used an AR-15 to defend herself and her family from a violent home invasion.

Masked individuals broke into her Florida home and severely beat her husband, who suffered serious injuries. He thought he was going to die.

“I’ve got a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity, a concussion, 20 stitches and three staples in my head. I took a severe beating,” Jeremy King told Spectrum News Bay Area 9.

“They came in heavily hooded and masked. As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” he continued, saying the masked men were asking for money. “It became real violent, real fast.”

King said the two suspects grabbed his 11-year old daughter and his wife grabbed their AR-15. She shot one of them, who then ran out of the house and died in a ditch nearby. The other suspect is still on the run.

Ah, self-defense, the ultimate liberty what a beautiful thing!!

South Dakota goes with Constitutional Carry

Good for South Dakota!

South Dakota has become the latest state to remove permit requirements for gun owners to carry and conceal their weapons.

The state’s new Republican governor, Kristi Noem, signed SB 47 into law Thursday. The legislation permits residents to legally carry a firearm concealed on their person so long as they are allowed to possess one.

The bill passed the state Senate by a 23-11 vote and the state House by a vote of 47-23, reports said. In a tweet, Noem said the new law reflects the vision of the Founding Fathers and protects Second Amendment gun rights.

A crazed man earned a bullet when he attacked a Starbucks employee

A concealed carrier in a Utah Starbucks fired one shot into the chest of a man last week who polices said had just assaulted a barista, Salt Lake City’s Fox 13 reported.

The carrier was in his late 60s, police said. His identity was not released.

“He witnessed the assault against the clerk,” UPD Detective Ken Hansen said. “And his response, because apparently after the assault the guy came after him, and so he shot the man in the chest.”

The suspect, identified as Benjamin Scott Overall, 37, set off a panic alarm around 6 a.m. Oct. 4 inside a 7-Eleven store in Millcreek, a suburb of Salt Lake City, KJZZ-TV reported. A responding officer approached Overall, who then allegedly fled to a nearby Starbucks.

Overall then allegedly attacked a female employee, the Salt Lake City Tribune reported. A police “probable cause” statement said he punched her, hit her in the head with a metal basket, and kicked her.

“She couldn’t get away from him, and he continued to strike her on her head, face, neck and shoulders,” criminal charges stated.

A good guy with a gun………………….AGAIN!

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.

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!
