Let’s go through this again, because it’s important to repeat it. The Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex and their compliant stenographers in the mainstream media love to spout the number of people who are killed with firearms in this country every year. And every one of them is a tragedy.
Yet they somehow fail to balance that information with the other side of the equation, i.e. the number of people who use firearms to defend themselves and their families. People who — usually without ever pulling a trigger — stop robberies, rapes, assaults, home invasions, murders and, as in the story below, kidnappings.
BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — Police in West Virginia say a man was trying to abduct a child at a mall when the mother stopped him by pulling out a gun.
News outlets report 54-year-old Mohamed Fathy Hussein Zayan of Alexandria, Egypt, was arraigned Monday night in Cabell County Magistrate Court on a felony charge of attempted abduction.
According to a criminal complaint, a woman was shopping with her 5-year-old daughter at the Huntington Mall in Barboursville when a man grabbed the girl by the hair and tried to pull her away. Police say the mother pulled out a gun and told the suspect to let go of the child. The man released the child and was later detained by mall security and Barboursville police near a food court.
Zayan was being jailed on $200,000 cash bond. Jail records didn’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
