The Left has been in overdrive since the Las Vegas Attack and now energized after the Sutherland Springs massacre to make the argument for more gun control. These people will never stop until their real objective is met: complete and total disarmament and confiscation of every single civilian owned weapon. The fact that weapons have been used in self-defense and are rarely reported is no surprise. This of course gives hacks like the NYT’s Brett Stephens all the ammo he needs to claim “not a single instance”
We know otherwise as reported on this site and many others of good guys with guns stopping bad guys with guns. Open up any issue of the NRA magazine and you will see a page dedicated to multiple stories of guns being used to stop crimes, even violent ones. Don’t get the magazine? That’s okay you can go through 538 pages of stories here!
The Clackamas Mall in 2012 is a story that was quickly buried by the media that could have been a deadly massacre right before Christmas.
The attack in Sutherland Springs, is especially important, as the killer was well armed where he would have at the least gotten into a gunfight with police. The man who stopped the killer, Stephen Willeford, destroyed all the Lefts talking points by being an NRA firearms instructor, using an AR-15 (force met with equal force), and a religious man! In a nutshell he is one of those people who is clinging to his bible and guns obama enjoyed mocking, and thank God he did! These stories destroy the Left’s argument to more gun control.
Will Stephens ever admit to cases of self-defense with a gun? Of course not he wants you disarmed, defenseless to violent criminals who will never follow any law. Remember the Left HATES YOU, they make it abundantly clear everyday with their attacks on good law-abiding Americans.
