At a time when some gun control advocates appear intent on painting lawful gun ownership as a danger to society, and the Second Amendment as little more than an outdated protection of a person’s right to hunt. This makes it all the more critical that we continue to emphasize the important role lawful gun owners play—not just as a long-term protection against tyrannical government, but as an immediate and regular defense against crime.
As these stories from last month will show you, the first line of defense against crime is by those who are prepared when a crime occurs. Police officers are not always there when you need them. They respond to calls of those who are already in peril, or to a crime scene after the offense has occurred.
It’s important to remember the role that armed citizens can play in defending your inalienable rights. So once again, we have some more examples of The Good Guys with Guns that did not want to become the victims of a crime that occured last month.
