I wish we didn’t live in a world where people try to slash their mother’s throat – or any of the other heinous, violent things people do to each other. But we do. “Victoria Mendez was driving home from work around 10:30 Sunday night when she saw her estranged son standing near the corner of 50th Drive and Windrose, just down the street from her house on the northern Glendale-Phoenix border,” azfamily.com reports. “‘I rolled my passenger window down and I said, ‘Hey Hakeem [Shawky, above], what’s up? How are you doing?’ she explained. ‘And he popped his head into my window and he says, ‘I just want to give you a kiss, mama.’ . . .
Every time one of the anti-gun organizations talks about concealed carry, they try to make it seem like the whole exercise of packing a gun is pointless. “No one has ever stopped a mass shooting with a concealed handgun” they claim, completely ignoring the fact that you can’t quantify mass shootings that didn’t happen. Well, according to the Philadelphia Police Department, a properly licensed person who was carrying a concealed handgun stopped a man who had begun firing wildly in a downtown barber shop late Sunday afternoon.

Back in the day, my family summered on the Rhode Island coastline. When my father died, his ashes scattered in the bay in front of the house, my octogenarian mother lived there alone. One night, as I was pulling out of the pebbled drive, a thought occurred: what if someone broke in? She would be defenseless. While I had a spare revolver in the car, my mum is as anti-gun as they come. Even so, I felt obliged to make the offer . . .
“Presently, as the result of underfunding and inadequate staffing at the Van Zandt County (TX) Sheriff’s Office, homeowners need to take appropriate precautions to protect their families.” So advises Sheriff Michael Ray. Fortunately, an unnamed local woman had already realized the importance of having the ability to protect herself.

A 67-Year-Old CCW permit holder stopped a crime spree and a budding criminal career on Wednesday in Cobbs Creek Park in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania.
