A recent episode of armed self-defense in Minnesota is a perfect example of how gun-ban advocates’ lies about “good guys with guns” are just that—lies.
Anti-gunners and their enablers in the so-called “mainstream” media like to do things like compare the number of murders to the number of criminals killed in self-defense shootings to make their incorrect point that armed citizens never stop criminals. In fact, Shannon Watts, head of Michael Bloomberg’s Demanding Moms, once said in a CNN interview regarding the concept of a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy with a gun: “This has never happened. Data shows it doesn’t happen.”
That couldn’t be farther from the truth. Consider the Minnesota example mentioned earlier.
A St. Cloud man and his wife were walking through a Wal-Mart parking lot last Wednesday night when a man walked up behind them with a baseball bat. He yelled at the couple, then asked them if they had “ever been hit in the head with a bat.”
The couple ignored him and continued toward their vehicle, but then heard the suspect take a deep breath. Turning and seeing the assailant with his bat raised to strike, the man pulled his concealed handgun, prompting the wannabe attacker to drop the bat and run away. Police later arrested 30-year-old Phillip Keys on suspicion of second-degree assault.
