Gun Laws In The Real World

Abe Lincoln may have freed all men, but Sam Colt made them equal. — Anonymous

The problem gun laws is that too often, they take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens while the criminals stay armed. For example, let’s say Barack Obama and Company were to have one of their fondest wishes answered and they were able to make it illegal to own a handgun.

The mainstream media would cheer from the rafters, they’d produce skewed polls showing that the public supports it, they’d produce “experts” who’d swear up and down that it would mean that the crime rate is going to plunge, and we’d have weeping anti-gun activists on TV who’d talk about how wonderful it is that there would be no more massacres like Columbine for us to worry about.

That could all be true — well, if criminals followed laws. Of course, the reason criminals are criminals is because they break laws — like gun laws. That brings us to a story from College Point, GA that’s making the rounds across the right side of the blogosphere right now.

A group of college students said they are lucky to be alive and they’re thanking the quick-thinking of one of their own. Police said a fellow student shot and killed one of two masked me who burst into an apartment.

“Apparently, his intent was to rape and murder us all,” said student Charles Bailey.

Bailey said he thought it was the end of his life and the lives of the 10 people inside his apartment for a birthday party after two masked men with guns burst in through a patio door.

“They just came in and separated the men from the women and said, ‘Give me your wallets and cell phones,'” said George Williams of the College Park Police Department.

Bailey said the gunmen started counting bullets. “The other guy asked how many (bullets) he had. He said he had enough,” said Bailey.

That’s when one student grabbed a gun out of a backpack and shot at the invader who was watching the men. The gunman ran out of the apartment.
The student then ran to the room where the second gunman, identified by police as 23-year-old Calvin Lavant, was holding the women.

“Apparently the guy was getting ready to rape his girlfriend. So he told the girls to get down and he started shooting. The guy jumped out of the window,” said Bailey.”

Now as the student said, Calvin Lavant, who happily, was found dead later, apparently intended to “rape and murder” his way through an apartment full of 10 people.

So, do you think the sort of person who would participate in the rape and murder of 10 strangers, is going to say, “Gee, I really need this gun in order to rape and murder people with, but it’s illegal now. Guess I better turn it in.”

You laugh at that because it’s so ridiculous, but liberals believe it. They think you can pass a handgun ban and people like Calvin will immediately turn in their handguns and will be unable to get their hands on another one.

Meanwhile, back in the real world, if the Left had their way, that college student, because he probably is a law abiding student with a registered handgun, would turn in his gun while Calvin Lavant and his murderous pal would have held on to their guns. Then today, we’d be reading about the horrific scene the police walked in on when they found 10 people dead in that apartment.

But, it wasn’t the police that saved the lives of those college students. It wasn’t the FBI, the CIA, or Barack Obama — it was one man with a gun who took action to protect his life, the life of his girlfriend, and his friends. God bless him and may we always have the freedom to own guns in this country so we can protect ourselves, our family, our friends, our homes, and if needbe — our freedom.
