Guns Save Lives
Guns do save lives. The case of a legally armed, open carrying gun owner who killed a would-be robber at a Richmond store recently is all the evidence one needs. Proof .45-caliber is quicker than 911: Cops didn't arrive until after robber had been fatally wounded.
All those little anti-gun 'wussies,' should take note of this case.
I had a friend once,who was such an anti-gun nut (and a Christian preacher here in Virginia Beach), whom I asked: "You mean to tell me that if your wife was being raped and you could get a gun to protect her, you wouldn't? You'd stand there and watch?"
He replied, "I would never use a gun for any reason. In fact, I wouldn't use one if I could to protect my own life. If you want to kill me, go ahead."
I concluded this guy was a (1). either a pervert; and (2). More of a nut case than any gun rights supporter.
In my opinion, no one in America does as much 'grunt work' protecting gun rights and the public than Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL).
About the would be robbery and shooting at Richmond's Golden Market, Van Cleave and another VCDL board member met with the guy who saved the lives of everyone else there. Here is the story the way Phil tells it in a 'mini-update' that he sends to members:
