They only kill. Gun Rights (and other liberty) activists would rest easier, and be more willing to talk, if those who oppose them didn't constantly trot out tired, worn out arguments that are demonstrably false. Mention that guns can be used to protect the innocent, and expect to get laughed at. Mention that someone in your very part of the country stopped a neighbor's home invasion, and if it wasn't on the National News, you'll be called a liar.
So we have this little tidbit. Looks like a citizen for responsible gun ownership was shopping when a crazed attacker rushed into a store with a machete. The citizen for responsible gun ownership was able to stop the attacker.
I realize we don't know the details. I know something could come out where the gunman was the villain and the machete wielding attacker was the victim. But right now, it looks like that citizen for responsible gun ownership turned out to be quite the hero. Given that his actions betray the Media narrative, I hope he has a spotless record going back to about his 6th month of life, because if he has done anything wrong, the media will find out. Especially if this gets picked up on the national level.
If it's true, however, then I'll be those who were spared from the machete wielder's attack will be more than happy that at least one person bucked the narrative and dared to suggest that guns, in the hands of the right people, can actually save lives, rather than be instruments for indiscriminately taking them.
