10 Stories That Prove Guns Save Lives

Posted on: February 2nd, 2013

In a nation that already has more than 200 million guns, gun control does little other than make the work of rapists, robbers, murderers and nuts like Adam Lanza easier. When faced with gun control laws, the law abiding citizen has no choice other than to disarm or become an outlaw, but people with bad intentions are faced with no such moral dilemma. That’s why the best friend of a rapist or a potential Adam Lanza is the gun control advocate who’s working tirelessly to insure that his targets can’t adequately defend themselves.

On some level, even diehard advocates of gun control know this, which is why they want people with guns defending them. Our police aren’t going to disarm, the military isn’t going to try to fight our enemies with non-violent protests and the White House will never become a “gun free zone.” But, what happens when the bad man with the gun is right there and the military, the police, and the President’s Secret Service aren’t on the scene? Then having a gun may be the difference between living or dying, between being raped or being okay, between saving your children or watching them die.

The hypocrites who want men with guns to protect them when they’re in trouble, but want to prevent other law abiding citizens from defending themselves love to use anecdotal evidence to make their case. Those of us who are pro-Second Amendment then usually talk about our Constitutional rights or reel off statistics to counter them, but we have our own stories. There are thousands of good and decent Americans who are alive today precisely because they had guns. Gun control advocates might think the world would be a better place if those people and the ones you’re about to read about were dead and the people menacing them had gotten away with their crimes, but those of us who are serious about our Second Amendment rights disagree.

    As I read the accounts, it appears not one had to load their gun or take the trigger lock off to use it. Years ago, I had a police officer come to my house and tell me to lock my gun up and put it up in the closet. I turned to him and said “No Sir! my gun is ready to use should I need it”. I still think that is the best action move is to be ready, otherwise the bad guy is going to get what he wants.

      An unloaded weapon is about as useful as a hammer.

    As most NRA members know thousands of crimes are prevented every day by honest law-abiding citizens. Yet we will never see the truth of it in any mainstream media reporting; and that includes the cowards at Fox.

    if the social/liberals were real open minded free thinkers [which they think they are] ; they could find a thousand stories of good;; they are close minded bigots incapable of objectivity.

    We need a law requiring this stuff be printed on the same page as the opposing news of firearm usage . If we had a press with ANY honesty and / or integrity this would not have to be said , but it has become obvious that we have an anti-American national news media in this country .

    Now that the DHS has issued their scissors advisory, I have to wonder how many lives have been saved with scissors. I made a nice holster for my scissors. I hope I look really intimidating when I strap them on my hip, but I doubt it. I wonder when we’ll need a permit for concealed scissor carry.

      I plan to weld my scissors open at 90 degrees and grind pointier tips. Better handhold and possible 2 point throwing star.

    Bottom line on gun control is………the U.N’s Agenda 21………we have a bunch of our employees in our government who think that their oath to our constitution has no meaning. Examples: TSA’ s breaking of the forth amendment, DHS raiding the gun collector in NM then taking +/- 1500 guns with no charges against collector. Aunt and niece driving on road in TX some how a cigarette flew out the window cop pulls them over because of the cigarette.Cop at the window of said car states he smells marijauana the women state that they do not smoke marijauana. Cop presumes that they are guilty, actually this act is against our constituional law, so he states he has to get a female officer to strip search them. Female cop shows up and strip searches them on the side of the road useing same glove on both women and at the same time male officer searches car. No drugs found. There is a utube of this. Reason for the rambling is to paint the picture of tyranny at all levels of our government. Our governemntal employees need to remember that they actuall work for us “WE THE PEOPLE”. Also all of our governmental employees should read and be tested on the constitution of our country, then maybe they would respect their fellow citizens.

    We are a veterns family and live in fear of a police raid if you let them in they can keep going or resist and they wil produce a warrent. If they find any amunition or firearm not stored correctly or unregistered we get 2-5 years in jail. Now we are criminals and can,t cross the border to our bank or to shop! Yes it,s going to have to be fought again! Freedom!! Ken

    We do need many more of these told. Especially the non LEO people coming to the rescue of OTHERS. Many might not want to own a gun but would be very appreciative if they knew their Neighbor might be a source of rescue. After hearing unusual noises late at night from next door, my son and I armed up and cautiously investigated. Although the noises were created by neighbor, she did appreciate the response and check in.

    Any time you run into a Gun Grabber, remind them that their lives and or members of their family may very well have been passed up as a victim because a Criminal gave second thoughts about they’re being armed.. Having People with Conceal Carry guns put doubts in the mind of criminals for ALL potential victims… Disarming everyone is a Job Security boost for Criminals and they are all for it….

      They don’t think twice in Kommiefornia. They have free rein here and they know it!

    I shoot guys with scissors! :-)

    Not enough is said about the real reason for owning guns and that is to protect our nation from tryants in government that want total control over us and the country to suit and serve themselves with no concern for the rest of us freedom loving Americans. The latest proof is that homeland security just bought 7000 AR-15 assult rifles to protect themselves against US. If they were not planning on subjugating us they would NOT need to fear us.

    With all the uproar over gun control, one may want to consider this.

    Brilliant way to put it. But because of the common sense aspect of it, no one in Washington will pay attention.

    A person steals guns, (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), shoots and kills his own mother (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), transports these guns loaded (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), brings guns onto school property (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), breaks into the school (WHICH IS AGAINST
    THE LAW), discharges the weapons within city limits (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW),
    murders 26 people (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), and commits suicide (WHICH IS
    AGAINST THE LAW).

    And there are people in this country that somehow think passing ANOTHER LAW banning guns would protect us from someone like this. If you haven’t noticed, people like this are not concerned
    about breaking laws – they only care about fulfilling their own twisted agenda.

    The only people that a gun ban law would impact are the LAW ABIDING CITIZENS, which will only serve to cripple the ability to protect ourselves.

    If you agree with this, please re-post.

    If not, read it again and see if it does not make a wee bit of sense.
