Yes, there are still some drive-in theaters around. One of those — the Showboat Drive-In Theater — is located in Hockley, Texas, northwest of Houston. That was where a theater manager found herself under attack early Monday morning by two men, one of whom was wielding a baseball bat.
According to abc13.com . . .
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office told ABC13 two managers were finishing up their shift when they spotted some motion inside the concession stand.
Deputies say one of the managers decided to go check it out and was confronted by two men.
One of the suspects pulled out a bat and started beating the manager, while the other suspect ran.
Fortunately, the manager was armed. She drew her gun and shot the man who’d attacked her with the bat. He won’t be beating any more women ever again.
Once again, this is why millions of Americans choose to carry a firearm. It’s because they’re scared, not because they’re “gun nuts,” not because they’re “ammosexuals” and not because of a deficiency in genital size. I doubt the female theater manager — someone who apparently works late hours around a fair amount of cash — was trying to compensate for a small penis.
The woman in question got to go home to her family because she was carrying a firearm and had the means to protect herself against an attacker with a deadly weapon. Not that that fact will sway anyone in the civilian disarmament community or their willing media stenographers.
Americans use firearms hundreds of thousands of times a year to defend themselves, most often without ever firing a shot. Those who would confiscate civilian-owned guns or make carrying or buying firearms more expensive or difficult are never asked about the crimes that guns prevent. They never address the fact that their proposals will inevitably mean fewer defensive gun uses, therefore more assaults, robberies, rapes and murders.
Next time someone tells you that we need to raise the bar for civilians to purchase and own firearms, ask them how many more of those kinds of crimes they’re willing to live with each year in order to achieve the “gun-free” utopia they envision.
