It’s a familiar scenario: An armed citizen with a concealed-carry permit is likely once again to have saved multiple lives. Several customers were doing business inside a pawn shop when a man walked inside, pointed a gun toward the ceiling and announced a robbery. Did the gunman intend to shoot the clerk? Would he take hostages? We’ll never know, because a customer with a concealed-carry permit promptly drew a pistol and shot the robber in the stomach. The robber has been charged with aggravated robbery. (KSAT-TV, San Antonio, TX, 06/22/11)

Upon stopping at an intersection, a motorist noticed a man approaching. Before he could react, the man reached through the window and punched him several times. Stunned by the blows, the motorist reached for his handgun, which he has a permit to carry. As his attacker reached behind his back, as if for a weapon, the motorist drew his gun and fired a shot, striking the assailant in the upper torso. The suspect will be charged following his release from the hospital. (WZXT-TV, Jacksonville, Fla., 7/15/11)

Phillip Ramsey was drinking coffee in his kitchen when there was a knock at the door. “I didn’t recognize him and I didn’t answer the door,” Ramsey recalled. Shortly thereafter a second unknown man knocked at the door. When Ramsey didn’t answer, the man circled toward the rear of the house. Ramsey heard glass breaking and grabbed his 9 mm pistol, which he usually stores in the bedroom. “For some reason, I had it with me in the kitchen today,” he said. Ramsey called 9-1-1 and when he got to his bedroom, the man was getting off the bed below a broken window. Ramsey held the suspect at gunpoint until police arrived. Following the incident he offered the following safety advice to fellow citizens: “Get a gun and learn how to use it.” (The Post and Courier, Charleston, S.C., 8/31/11)
Studies indicate that firearms are used more than 2 million times a year for personal protection, and the presence of a firearm, without a shot being fired, prevents crime in many instances.
Blog author's comments - I have never ever seen the level of dishonesty and the will to transform our country as I have with the administration now in power.
One of many attacks which is being worked on within the shadows is the Obama administration’s clear intent—once freed from the political restrictions of a first term—to assault the Second Amendment.
The President has a long, detailed and irrefutable opposition to the Second Amendment—as a senator, as a candidate and in the White House. But he is not foolish enough to revisit his fight out in the open when he has to win another election.
The media has joined the administration's attempt to cover up the operation “Fast and Furious,” a deadly, criminal scheme concocted by the Justice Department and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Now that the secret’s out, the Obama administration stalls and obstructs the investigation.
This was done with intent to enact more gun control and limit our right to purchase and own firearms. These are the facts gun owners face today from the most anti-gun administration ever.
