Mom Gets Dragged Across Parking Lot by Two Suspects, Who Get a Lesson in Texas’ Concealed Carry Law
What happens when an unarmed woman is attacked by a couple of thugs? Well, if she’s lucky, then a good Samaritan might step in and save her:
A 30-year-old mother is lucky today after the quick-thinking of a stranger helped save her from a mugging.
The mother of two who was dragged across a Texas shopping center parking lot this week, clinging to her purse while two suspects in a sedan tried to snatch it.
That’s when the stranger, who was armed, stopped the would-be thieves and forced them to lie on the ground while they waited for the police to arrive.
“This lady opens her car door, grabs the woman’s purse and they reverse. While they’re trying to reverse, the lady is holding on to her purse still, chasing them all the way to the middle,” Brenda Vasquez, manager of a Houston Family Dollar store who witnessed the incident, told KHOU-TV. “And that good Samaritan came out, drew his weapon and scared them. And that’s when he pulled them out of the car.”
While it’s great that someone with a concealed carry permit stepped in to rescue this woman, this story illustrates the exact problem with gun control laws. Unarmed citizens, and especially women, are walking victims who will be completely helpless until someone with a gun can step in and save them. Who, exactly, does that benefit? Not the law-abiding citizens, that’s for sure.
