Good Guys With Guns
On January 7th, 2015 two armed terrorists attacked satirical cartoonists of the false prophet Muhammad in Paris, France.
On May 4th, 2015 two armed terrorists attacked satirical cartoonists of the false prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas.
In Paris, twelve innocent people were killed in the initial attack. The terrorists escaped and murdered five more people over the next several days. In Garland, no innocent people were killed. At all. The terrorists were shot before they could carry out their plan. Again….no innocent people died. At all.
What’s the difference in the two attacks?
The difference is that in Texas there were good guys with guns present when the bad guys with guns showed up.
I can’t stress this enough…. The way to deal with a bad guy with a gun IS A GOOD GUY WITH A GUN.
And I don’t mean cops. I mean good guys. Good guys come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. And they need guns. Because guns in the hands of good guys stop guns in the hands of bad guys.
You can’t regulate evil. You can’t negotiate or reason with evil. But you can shoot evil before it can do evil things. And my hat’s off to the good guy in Texas who did just that.
