This is what that new NRA ad was talking about (see NRA Releases Chilling New Ad: ‘Don’t Let Hillary Leave You Defenseless…”). People like Candee Wilhelm sharing her story of survival with the news, instead of the news sharing her obituary.
Quadarius Mickerson and Anthony Fisher are accused of breaking into four homes two weeks ago, one owned by the second-in-command at the sheriff’s office. Chief Deputy Todd Elmore’s wife, Candee Wilhelm, was in the shower when authorities said the two men broke in.
“There’s a guy walking straight into our laundry room and all of this takes a second to process, none of this is OK,” Wilhelm told Eyewitness News anchor Liz Foster.
Wilhelm said she quietly walked back into her bedroom, locked the door, grabbed a gun and called 911.
“If that doorknob had just jiggled, I was going to shoot through the door and that’s what I had been prepared to do. Thankfully I didn’t have to do that,” Wilhelm said.
When deputies arrived, the two intruders took off. They were caught after a massive overnight manhunt that locked down New Town Elementary School for hours.
“I know they were armed heavily now, so yeah, it was very frightening and I was scared I could lose my life,” Wilhelm said.
Thankfully, Wilhelm didn’t have to fire the gun at anyone. But the fact as that had it come to that, she would have been able to protect herself. Better safe than dead.
When liberals like Hillary Clinton claim that the Second Amendment isn’t Constitutional (it is) remember this story. This woman was able to access guns. Turned out she didn’t need to use them. But she had them. Rather like when you strap yourself into you car. Most of the time you don’t need to use your seatbelt. Most of the time you don’t need it. But you just never know when you will. Remember that whenever liberals claim they don’t want to take guns away (spoiler: they want to take guns away).
People like Candee Wilhelm? If Hillary had her way, Candee would’ve hoped the deputies arrived on time, rather than have a backup plan.
