Law abiding citizens using guns in self defense is no myth, contrary to liberal belief.
Many in the gun rights community believe that a privately owned gun is used in legitimate self-defense over 2 million times a year in America. This figure arose initially from the survey work done in 1993 by Florida State University criminologists Gary Kleck and Marc Gertz.
That study, known as the National Self-Defense Survey (NSDS), involved conducting nearly 5,000 interviews by phone in 48 states, anonymously, with phone numbers randomly generated. The respondents were asked if over the past five years they had used a gun—even if not fired—for self-protection or protection of property at work, home, or elsewhere. They were asked to exclude any use in miitary, police, or security work, if applicable, and asked whether the gun use was against an animal or a person.
Even if the margin of error on that study was 50%, that still means a million self defensive uses of firearms a year – far eclipsing the number of crimes committed with them. And here’s jsut one of those stories, courtesy of US Army 4 Life:
A 13-year-old South Carolina boy fatally shot one burglary suspect and scared off a second with his mother’s gun, police said.
The unidentified teenager told the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office that he was alone on Tuesday afternoon in his family’s home, north of North Charleston, when someone tried to break in, according to NBC affiliate WCBD.
The boy grabbed his mother’s gun, and then waited at the back door of the home, the station reported. Police say the boy fired repeatedly through the door, and someone outside shot back.
The suspect was hit three times, and a getaway driver rushed him to a hospital in Charleston, where he died of his gunshot wounds, according to an affidavit. A gray Chevy Sonic used in the incident was found with bullet holes, and a gun was retrieved from the home’s backyard, the affidavit said.
Serves them right!
Guns make it so easy for law abiding citizens to protect themselves, that even a 13 year old can do it!

Texan Goes On Live TV To Defend Gun Rights After Shooting, But His Shirt Causes A Massive Uproar
On Sunday afternoon, Devin Kelley walked into a small Texas church and opened fire on the congregates, killing 26 and injuring 20 more. Of course, the “compassionate” left immediately jumped on this tragedy ready to vilify conservatives and the NRA as the real culprits in this cold-blooded massacre. Instead of the mainstream media and liberal politicians sticking to the facts of this case, they chose to bypass them in favor of their gun control talking points.
The liberal pundits on the news all out ignored the fact that Kelley was only able to purchase a weapon due to a clerical error on the Air Force’s end. They also dismissed the truth that the deranged gunman was stopped from shedding more innocent blood by a good guy with a gun. However, Mike Jordan, whose son witnessed the carnage inside the Texas church did not forget those facts and wanted all of America to know them when he appeared on Fox News, Monday night.
Though what caught the attention of everyone was the shirt Jordan wore during his interview with Laura Ingraham that has enraged liberals but has garnered cheers from conservatives.
The left has wasted no time in politicizing the shooting in Texas that claimed innocent lives and has left the country in shock. Taking their cue from the Rahm Emanuel playbook of “never letting a crisis go to waste,” liberals have pounced on this tragedy to further push gun control onto weary Americans. Instead of the left focusing on the facts that the gunman only purchased the gun due to a clerical error and an NRA member stopped the shooter, they’d rather do their best to strip law-abiding citizens of their rights to bear arms.
So, when Mike Jordan was interviewed on Monday night to discuss the horrific event, he wore a shirt that had gun grabbing liberals heads implode.
Here is more from Conservative Tribune:
Jordan’s stand for Second Amendment rights didn’t stop with his attire. He also noted that an acquaintance of his son, who usually legally carries, didn’t bring his gun along to church that day.
“What if this was the day he didn’t leave that firearm at home? What if he did take it with him? …
“If you have one person on the inside that is armed to return fire, it may not have stopped people from dying,” Jordan added. “But it would have been a distraction, it would have gotten that guy’s attention.”
While no one in the church stopped the killer, another armed citizen did: namely, Stephen Willeford.
“I kept hearing the shots, one after another, very rapid shots — just ‘pop pop pop pop’ and I knew every one of those shots represented someone, that it was aimed at someone, that they weren’t just random shots,” Willeford said, according to KHBS-TV.
That’s when he loaded his magazine and ran toward the First Baptist Church, not even bothering to put on his shoes.
“He saw me and I saw him,” Willeford said. “I was standing behind a pickup truck for cover.”
“I know I hit him,” he added. “He got into his vehicle, and he fired another couple rounds through his side window. When the window dropped, I fired another round at him again.”
Of the two men, Stephen Willeford was legally allowed to own a firearm under the law. The shooter was not, but the government failed. Willeford stopped what could have been a greater tragedy.
There is no telling how many more innocent lives were saved if it wasn’t for the fast actions of the Stephen Willeford that day. And, while the left would love to claim that they are the party that stands for love and compassion, neither of those attributes will save an innocent life when a criminal is committing a crime.
The only thing that the left is concerned with is doing whatever they can to strip Americans of their rights to force citizens into full government control. The point of the Second Amendment is not only to protect ourselves from people who choose to do us harm but chiefly to protect us from a tyrannical government. If the second amendment was eradicated in the name of safety, then who would protect us from that same government that would choose to do us harm?

CNN Just Publicly Humiliated Texas Hero For Gunning Down Killer – Backfires BIG With His 2-Word Response
Don’t mess with Texas heroes!
From tragedy, heroes are born!
A man who is now being hailed as a hero for his pursuit of the gunman responsible for the Texas church shooting which left 26 people dead and 20 injured described the car chase that ended with the shooter crashing his vehicle.
Johnnie Langendorff was driving near the Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church on Sunday when he saw two men shooting at each other outside of the building. The two men involved in the exchange of gunfire were the church shooter, who has been identified as Devin Kelley, and a local area resident, Stephen Willeford. As he was driving by Langendorff said Willeford asked him for help after the shooter was wounded and fled in his car. Willeford then pursued the killer at speeds of over 95 miles per hour until, because of his wounds, Kelley ran his vehicle off the road and then shot himself dead.
TEXAS CHURCH MASSACRE: ‘Creepy’ Atheist Was Stopped by Armed Citizen
Crucial facts about the shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, are beginning to emerge. The perpetrator, 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley, was given a bad-conduct discharge from the Air Force three years ago after he assaulted his wife and infant child in 2012. Acquaintances of Kelley told the Daily Mail that he was “creepy,” “crazy” and “weird,” with a habit of posting atheist rants online. In interviews this morning, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said that Kelley had been denied a state permit to carry a weapon, and Abbott also said he believes the investigation will show that the Sutherland Springs church was not a target that Kelley chose at random. The Daily Beast reported Sunday that Kelley’s estranged wife’s mother listed a Sutherland Springs address, which seemed to indicate a motive of personal revenge.
The slaughter at the church was stopped by an armed citizen:
Two quick-thinking locals have been hailed as heroes for stopping the man responsible for the worst ever mass shooting in Texas which left 26 dead.
Stephen Willeford, 55, confronted gunman Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, when he was leaving First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, wounding him, before he and Johnnie Langendorff, 27, chased him in a car after he fled.
During the 95mph car chase, Kelley lost control of his vehicle and ran off the road, before shooting himself in the head. He called his father shortly before to say he had been shot and didn’t think he was going to make it.
Texas Department of Public Safety Regional Director Freeman Martin said Willeford ran out his home barefoot with his rifle and ‘engaged the suspect’. . . .
Willeford, a local plumber with no military experience, is however an excellent shot . . . and when he came face to face with Kelley, he shot in between his body armor, hitting him in his side.
At this point Langendorff . . . came across the exchange of fire.
When Kelley dropped his Ruger assault rifle and fled in an SUV, Willeford came up to Langendorff and hopped in his truck.
‘The neighbor with the rifle came to my truck and he opened my door and said, “He shot up the church”, and got in, Langendorff told Good Morning America. ‘He said, “Chase him” so that’s what I did. I just chase him.’ . . .
Langendorff told KSAT 12 that he’d been speeding at 95mph, while on the phone to dispatch, while Willeford kept his rifle trained on the gunman’s car.
As they approached a sharp curve in the road, near the 307 and 539, he said Kelley appeared to lose control and his car swerved off the road.
That’s when I put the truck in park,’ he said. ‘The other gentleman jumped out, and had his rifle on him. He didn’t move after that.’
Kelley was already dead when they found him inside his vehicle having shot himself dead. Police revealed during a press conference on Monday that the gunman called his father to let him know he had been shot and he didn’t think he was going to make it.
‘At this time we believe that he had a self-inflicted gunshot wound,’ Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt told CBS News on Monday.
We can expect to learn more about the gunman’s background and motive in the coming days, while Democrats demand new gun-control laws, but the reality here is that the Good Guy with a gun stopped the Bad Guy with a gun, and what Democrats want is to disarm the Good Guys.
But here is the best part of the whole saga. A liberal CNN reporter interviewed Willeford on live television and he was taken back by the responses he got to his questions.
America. F**k yeah.
Posted by The Daily Caller on Monday, November 6, 2017
The Liberal CNN report just couldn’t understand the answers. And the reason he couldn’t is simple. Liberals just don’t understand what the American spirit is. They don’t understand American defiance.
The American spirit is what made America what it is. We Americans never go round picking fights, but we will never run away from a fight neither. We are, and will always be, the first ones to lend a helping hand when the time comes that we are needed. Even when it comes to foreign nations. The motto “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave” isn’t just a motto. It’s what we live by. We will never back down and we will never surrender. This hero, Mr. Willeford, is the embodiment of that it is to be an American. Who knows how many more would have died if not for these two individuals who risked their own lives to stop a killer that Sunday morning.
Please share in support of these two heroes….

Obama Just Did Unthinkable To All 26 Texas Victims Behind Trump’s Back While He’s Overseas – This Is SICK
Hours After 26 Christian churchgoers in Texas were killed by a deranged gunman who stormed their Sunday worship service, former president Barack Obama saw an opportunity to take advantage of the situation and President Donald Trump’s absence. While the POTUS is in Asia, Obama went behind his back to do the unthinkable to all of these victims and their families. When Trump found out about it, he didn’t hold back on his predecessor and made him pay for trying to step in as president where he didn’t belong.
Democrats are notorious for never letting a crisis go to waste and what happened less than 24 hours ago in Sutherland Springs, Texas is no exception. Moments after 26 people were brutally murdered by Devin Patrick Kelley, Obama almost seemed gitty at the opportunity to use it to his advantage and tried to do just that. With fake sympathy for the families suffering the loss of their loved ones and a community in mourning, Obama made a disturbing statement to stab President Trump in the back using these victims’ suffering in a sickening way.
USA Newsflash reports:
Perhaps the lowest thing that someone can do in times of crisis is use a shooting incident in which people lost their lives, to their political advantage against another person. That was the case with former President Barack Obama, who used the shooting incident that took place this Sunday morning during a church service in Texas to call for fewer guns.
Obama started out saying,“We grieve with all the families in Sutherland Springs harmed by this act of hatred, and we’ll stand with the survivors as they recover,” before explaining how the American people should ask God for “the wisdom to ask what concrete steps we can take to reduce the violence and weaponry in our midst,”
The former president that has only recently stepped back inside the political arena of the United States didn’t go into specifics on how and what these steps should look like.
And there is no doubt that Obama’s reaction to the Sunday’s massacre was far more political than President Trump, who initially attempted to gather the people together and united them in these hard times.
He said, “In dark times, and these are dark times, such as these, Americans do what they do best: they pull together,” before finally concluding, “We join hands, we lock arms, and through the tears and through the sadness, we stand strong. All Americans pray to God to help the wounded and the families of the victims,”
Devoid of real emotion, Obama couldn’t save his gun control push for just a few days and let the initial shock and heartbreak over this tragedy somewhat subside. He also made this statement without knowing the facts and that’s that no amount of gun control could have stopped this massacre from happening since Kelley didn’t legally own the gun he used anyway. As a former military member who was dishonorably discharged from the Air Force, he was not allowed to own a weapon but did anyway. That level of gun control didn’t stop him from his crime and only a good guy with a gun, who legally owns his, was able to stop him.
It takes a good armed individual to stop a bad one and had a hero not been armed, as Obama is pushing for, then there would have been more than 26 victims. President Trump understands the real issue in these massacres and it’s not the gun — it’s the killer. He put his predecessor in his place with the announcement he made after the attack.
“President Trump said Monday that a mass shooting at a Texas church that left 26 dead was not ‘a guns situation,’ declaring that the problem was the shooter’s ‘mental health,'” The Hill reported. “I think that mental health is your problem here,” Trump said during a news conference in Tokyo in response to a question about the massacre in Sutherland Springs, Texas. “This was a very — based on preliminary reports — a very deranged individual. A lot of problems over a long period of time.”
The president pointed out what Obama refused to say after every act of evil like this, when he said, “we have a lot of mental health problems in our country, as do other countries, but this isn’t a guns situation. This is a mental health problem at the highest level. It’s a very, very sad event.”
“He first reacted to the speech earlier Monday while speaking at the U.S. Embassy in Japan, calling the violent outburst an ‘act of evil,'” The Hill added. “Later at the news conference, Trump declared that ‘it’s a little bit soon’ to discuss the issue of guns and suggested that more people would have been killed if another armed person had not opened fire on Kelley. ‘Fortunately, somebody else had a gun that was shooting in the opposite direction,’ he said. ‘Otherwise, it wouldn’t have been as bad as it was, it would have been much worse.’”
It’s disgusting that Obama continues to step in where he doesn’t belong and using this horrific event to push his agenda within hours of it happening, is insulting to all the dead victims and a community in mourning. It’s refreshing to have a Commander-in-Chief in office who isn’t afraid to call the killer out for exactly who he is and what caused him to commit this atrocious crime.
