If there’s one amendment liberals loathe with the intensity of a thousand suns — and they certainly seem to hate all of them, don’t they? — it’s got to be the Second.
You know, the one that protects our right to bear arms, to own guns for both defense of life and property from both criminals and tyrants?
These wonderful tools — and that’s what they are, despite attempts by the left to make them anthropomorphic creatures capable of committing mass murder — have saved an untold number of lives, but that’s still not enough for the radical progressives.
You know, since an armed populace will gladly defend its freedom from intrusive big government goons any day of the week, and that puts a damper on them forcing their agenda on a free society.
That’s likely why liberals hate hearing about stories like the one featuring Lt. Brandon Teel, an Air Force reservist — and concealed carry holder — stationed in Arkansas who ended up saving a man from being stabbed to death, using — wait for it — a gun.
According to TheBlaze, When Lt. Brandon Teel — an Air Force reservist stationed in Little Rock, Ark. — was driving home last week, he thought he saw a couple of kids playing and tumbling into the street.
But after Teel slowed down to get a better look, he saw it was two men. And one was repeatedly stabbing the other.
So Teel exited his vehicle and gave the attacker an unmistakable order — with some extra incentive.
“I quickly pulled out my concealed weapon, drew it on him and I said, ‘Stop what your doing, get down on the ground or I’m going to shoot you,’” Teel recalled to KATV-TV.
While holding the attacker at gunpoint with one hand, Teel dialed 911 with the other, the station said.
After Austin police arrived, they found Darren Terry, 47, with three wounds, and he was taken to a hospital, KATV reported.
His brother Chris Terry, 30, was arrested and charged with first-degree domestic battery and was being held in jail on a $10,000 bond, the station added.
What did local Police Chief Bill Duerson have to say about the heroic act of Teel?
“Lt. Teel is a perfect example of a responsible concealed carry permit holder,” Austin Police Chief Bill Duerson told the station of last Monday’s incident. “He acted heroically in the face of extreme danger and avoided a tragedy.”
Couldn’t agree more.
The whole point of the Second Amendment is to provide regular citizens with the means necessary to protect themselves, their loved ones, their property, and their freedom.
The police are awesome, but it takes an average of eight minutes to respond to a call, and a whole lot can happen in that amount of time, none of it good.
Many leftists swear there’s no such thing as a mass shooting stopped by a good guy with a gun. Well, duh. That’s because the shooting never happened.
