Shannon Watts, please call your office. An incident took place on St. Louis’s south side late Monday evening that (once again) puts the lie to your laughable ‘defensive gun uses don’t happen’ claim. A teenage girl was retrieving something from a car in front of her home when she was accosted by two doods. They were in the process of forcing her back inside her home when her father saw what was happening and grabbed an instrument of of wanton death and destruction . . .
As fox2now.com reports,
The girl’s father saw the suspects walking his daughter toward the home. That`s when police say the teen`s father, a 34 year old man, got his gun and fired several shots at the suspects, hitting both of them. The girl`s mother, also 34, got another gun and fired a round as well, not hitting either suspect.
That’s right, both dad and mom unleashed vollies in defense of their cub. And dad had apparently been putting in some range time, as one of the two attackers assumed ambient temperature right there on the front lawn. His accomplice is currently resting uncomfortably in critical condition with wounds to his chest and legs.
Never mind all that, though. Pay no attention to those armed citizens behind the curtain. None of this really happened because Shannon and Everytown for Gun Safety said it didn’t.
Gun-grabbers like Watts and her pint-size paymaster, Michael Bloomberg, would have preferred that the teen’s parents had been denied their right to armed self defense. If the girl had been raped, possibly even murdered, that’s just the price we need to pay for a “safer,” disarmed society in which only the police are granted permission to wield firearms.
Fortunately, for now, the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex hasn’t been able to win that argument. And people like that family in south St. Louis have the ability to defend the life of their daughter when it’s threatened. For now.
