As the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre reiterated this week after the Washington Navy Yard shootings, the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. A point which seems axiomatic to The People of the Gun. Predictably, for his trouble he’s come in for the requisite ridicule from members of the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex and the mainstream media. Yes, we realize that’s redundant. Be that as it may, LaPierre couldn’t have come up with a better example to illustrate his point than an un-named former Brit marine (above) who’s being credited with saving 100 people during the 4-day Islamo-fascist siege of a Nairobi, Kenya shopping mall . . .
The former soldier is said to have returned to the building on a dozen occasions, despite intense gunfire.
A friend in Nairobi said: ‘What he did was so heroic. He was having coffee with friends when it happened.
‘He went back in 12 times and saved 100 people. Imagine going back in when you knew what was going on inside.’
Given his background, the gun-grabber community will, as night follows day, attempt to shrug this example of heroism and effectiveness off as proof that only qualified military and policemen should be allowed to tote firearms. But for some reason, Michael Bloomberg, Diane Feinstein, Colin Goddard, Mark Glaze, Dan Gross, Josh Sugarmann, Shannon Watts, John Hickenlooper, John Morse, Angela Giron, Andrew Cuomo, Dannel Malloy, Leland Yee, Jerry Brown and Martin O’Malley were unavailable for comment.
