Crooks can be a confident bunch, we have to give them that. Take this jag-weed for example. He thought it a good idea to beat the bejeezus out of a police officer in broad daylight, in the middle of a highway. Little did he know his half-assed plan would be foiled by piping hot chunks of lead. Courtesy of a bystander turned good samaritan.
That was the raw footage. Here be the news coverage, should you want to consider yourself extra informed:
Florida law enforcement officials recently released graphic footage of an armed citizen shooting and killing another man in defense of a Florida deputy who was being attacked in the middle of an interstate highway.
Passerby Ashad Russell, who possessed a concealed carry permit at the time of the November 14 incident, came to the aid of Lee County Deputy Dean Barde, who was being brutally beaten by armed suspect Edward Strother, 53.
At the time of the incident, Strother was atop and punching the deputy and reaching for his own handgun when the deputy shouted for Russell to “Please, shoot him!”
The deputy’s attacker was pronounced dead at the scene after he received three gun shot wounds.
Sounds like this bad fella didn’t count on any of the bystanders to come prepared. He counted wrong…
Amendment numero dos allows us non-badged folk to pack heat in case such an incident occurs. There are baddies out there everywhere and the cops don’t always have the upper hand. Sometimes, it comes down to a normal chappie to deposit the trash in the proper receptacle. Hence the hand-cannons. When the baddies are up to the mischief, rack the slide, squeeze the trigger, problem solved. It’s as simple as that.
You’d think these guys would have figured out by now that screwing with innocents is hardly a viable strategy (read Thanks 2nd Amendment! Good Samaritan SAVES Woman at Walmart and REAL HERO: Arizona Trooper Shot in Ambush. Passerby SHOOTS Trooper’s Attacker!). It rarely ends well for them. But, I suppose if these crooks had any gray matter about them, they wouldn’t be baddies in the first place. Only a cotton-headed ninnymuggin would think he could dodge karma forever. Sometimes karma bites you back, in the form of a hole in your aorta.
The fact is the Second Amendment was put in place specifically for situations like this one. Every decent person, who isn’t a criminal neanderthal, has the right to sling the freedom pellets to protect himself and others. For those times when friendly talk won’t get you out of a life-or-death scenario, the .357 magnum is quite handy.
Of course, leftists have a completely different take on the Second…
