Carry a Concealed Firearm Because You Can Stop Mass Murder and Save Lives

Injunction Sought in Federal Lawsuit Over Riverside, California Sheriff Stan Sniff’s “Discriminatory and Unconstitutional” Handgun License Policies
Carry a Concealed Firearm Because You Can Stop Mass Murder and Save Lives

U.S.A.– -(AmmoLand.com)- Doctor John Lott is the president and one of the principal researchers at the Crime Prevention Research Center. Dr. Lott recently reminded us that guns save lives and stop mass murder. I’d forgotten about a few of these incidents, though I’m sure I read a little about them at the time. In contrast, the news media covers mass murderers for days on end. To help offset that media bias, let’s look back only 10 months to see what we did.

You might have forgotten, but you saved lives.

  • Do you remember the armed attack at a shooting range/ gun store in Metairie, Louisiana that happened only a few months ago? The murderer was carrying a loaded gun in his hands. The staff at the store asked him to put his gun away. Instead, the murderer attacked staff and customers. Two victims were killed before staff members and customers shot the murderer and ended the attack. Then, staff and customers called 911.
  • It was back in August of 2020 when an armed man saved lives in a Walmart in Weslaco, Texas. Our armed good guy saw another man walk into the store dressed in black and carrying a rifle. The armed citizen drew his firearm and pointed it at the intruder. A security guard also helped hold the would-be attacker. The attacker was furious because you stopped him from killing people. Police arrived and took the rifle. The attacker was shot by law enforcement officers when he drew his handgun and threatened the police.
  • You saved lives again last July in a sports bar in Dallas, Texas. A man was turned away from the bar due to restricted seating during the Covid epidemic. The angry customer came back and started shooting into the crowd. Four people were injured before armed patrons shot back and the attacker ran away. Police arrived minutes later.
  • It was the middle of July when you were stopped at a traffic light in Brownsburg, Indiana. You saw two men run across the intersection. These two men were being chased by a man with a gun. The attacker shot them. You stepped out of your car and then the attacker shot at you. You shoot back and ended his attack. Emergency medical services are able to save one of the attacker’s intended victims.
  • You saved lives in early July as you waited to get into a restaurant in Hummels Wharf, Pennsylvania. A stranger stopped his pickup truck in the middle of the parking lot. The driver got out and shot two people standing in line near. You draw your firearm and shoot back ending his attack. You call 911.

The list of armed defense incidents is much longer, but those are the ones that happened in the last 10 months. I suspect you are like me and forgot how often guns save lives. You forget the virtue of an armed society.

Give Dr. Lott a read.

Only cowards and criminals carry concealed weapons. You know that when the shooting starts you are going to pee your pants, and either stand there frozen with fear or run crying for your mommy. After the shooter runs out of bullets you might shoot him in the back, assuming you are close enough to hit him because of your trembling hands. I would give John Lott a read but he makes a lot of claims and refuses to publish the raw data or the methodology he used to interpret the data in support of his claims. And why would he?… Read more »

JSNMGC aren’t you a registered sex offender who is prohibited under state and Federal law from possessing firearms? If not then come out of the closet and let people know who you really are because only cowards and criminals hide behind the Internet.

JSNMGC and so I was right. You are a registered sex offender who is prohibited from possessing firearms under state and Federal law. Thanks for confirming what we all suspected, buttercup.

“Carry a Concealed Firearm Because You Can Stop Mass Murder and Save Lives”
But yet once again I simply just do not know what to say. My Openly Carried cross draw 1911 in 45 ACP with two back-up magazines just is not good enough for so many “pro” gun people. Exclusion is a terrible thing.

Don’t worry about a few bot vocal people that disagree with you. If stuff hit the fan they would be happy for your help. Back packers say HYOH Hike Your Own Hike, so I say, CYOC Carry Your Own Carry.

Wow, I only heard of two of these stories. There is one more I would have added and that is the one where they guy went into a church and shot up a bunch of people and one of the people there that was armed ended the jerks life. How about the one where the NRA instructor or some kind of gun instructor shot a guy that was on a killing spree using an Assault Rifle with is Armalite Rifle. What do these things have in common. Happy endings for the fugitives.

The major news media companies don’t want these type of true stories to be told so they block them, can’t have a good guy with a gun stopping a vile criminal from killing innocents on the news, it would hurt their liberal agenda to push for gun confiscation.
