There are good and bad people, gentle and cruel people, predators and prey. Yesterday, Americans were once again treated to a stark illustration of why the Second Amendment is the aegis of our God-given human right of self defense:
Late at night, home and alone in Cushing, Oklahoma, a very frightened woman tried to stay calm as she described an in-progress break-in to a 911 dispatcher. She pleaded for help as an unknown man was yelling, banging on windows and doors, and trying to force his way in.
This went on for nearly 12 terrifying minutes, until the intruder threw a table through her sliding glass door at the rear of the house. The woman — still after all this time with no law enforcement anywhere near — was thankfully armed with a 16-gauge shotgun. She fired as the intruder entered . . .
Donna Jackson’s chilling encounter was taped and made available by the Emergency Dispatch Center. You can read about it at Bookworm Room or listen to the 911 call below:
Do you think this can’t or won’t happen to you? Think again.
Never forget that the United Nations, the Obama administration and Democrat Congress, political activists, anti-gun organizations, and state-run media have been and will continue to do all they can to disarm all American citizens. Then what?
Some things you may not know
Do you really believe law enforcement will protect you and your children from something like what happened to Mrs. Jackson?
The harsh reality is this:
1) 20 percent of U.S. homicides occur in four cities with just six percent of the population — New York, Chicago, Detroit, and Washington, D.C. — and each has a virtual prohibition on private handguns.
2) Among the 15 states with the highest homicide rates, 10 have restrictive or very restrictive gun laws.
And as we all know, those four cities have some of the best, if not the best, law enforcement agencies in the nation. And yet they cannot be everywhere at once.
So what are you left with? You law-abiding but unarmed people living in those cities and states must, as a last-gasp resort, depend upon your law enforcement agencies to protect you from violent assault or murder. Good luck, and here’s why:
In 2005, the Supreme Court of the United States reaffirmed the ruling that police departments have no responsibility to protect anyone, even if the victim had a restraining order against the offender.
Some things you’d better know
Law enforcement cannot and will not stop crimes from happening or protect someone prior to the actual commission of a crime. This is an indisputable fact that has been upheld countless times in courts at every level.
It is the individual’s responsibility to defend person and property — it is also a fact that NOBODY is going to do it for you. Ask yourself the following:
1) If guns are the preferred tools of criminals, why would politicians want law-abiding citizens to be unarmed and defenseless?
2) Why do politicians insist their bodyguards be armed, but not you and me?
3) If you and your children were face-to-face with a male attacker twice your size, what would you do if you were not armed? If you were armed?
4) If guns are “too dangerous” to be in our society, how come our leaders want to be the only ones who have them? Do you trust our leaders implicitly to protect you at all times? Do you trust our leaders?
5) If we ever completely ban guns, do you think there will be no more armed criminals in America?
6) Which is better — more gun control and the eventual banning of all guns in our society — except from criminals — or being able to stop an armed intruder intent on doing harm to your family?
7) With more than 30,000 restrictive gun laws already on the books nationwide, why do “gun crimes” still exist? Why are “gun crimes” most prolific in jurisdictions with the most restrictive anti-gun laws?
You either get it or you don’t. You understand and support the Constitution or you don’t. You cherish your constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms or you don’t. Just remember that the Bill of Rights contains the first ten Amendments to the Constitution, not nine, three, or five — it’s all or none.
And when it comes to defending your family and property — you are on your own.
