Concealed Carrier Stops Attempted Rape On Walking Trail
Posted by Bob Owens on August 30, 2014 at 11:30 am

*** begin quote ***

A woman on a walking trail in Lancaster, Ohio, apparently has her concealed weapon to thank for saving her from two men who seemed to have the worse of intentions.

*** and ***

The men took off and so far have eluded police.

Believe it or not, Mrs. Burns has gotten grief on her Facebook page for not shooting her would be assailants.

That she didn’t shoot them is a personal matter, and none of us know how we’ll respond until we’re in a similar situation. There is thankfully a gap between “legally justified” and “clearly needed to.” Since the men fled the moment they saw the gun, she didn’t feel the need to fire her weapon.

Burn’s dog was no deterrent at all to the two attackers.

This is worth pointing out to those who believe that a small or medium-sized dog will deter criminal assaults.

As everyone reading this should know by now I am a self-described peace-loving pro-life pro-choice little L libertarian. 

That being said I think there are several good lessons in this story:

* “God made men and women; Sam colt made them equal.” — Unknown 

In this case, one armed good woman was “more equal” than two bad men and a baseball bat.

* If you draw, you’ve decided to use deadly force.

I agree with the Facebook commenters. She was wrong. (IMHO) Once you’ve drawn, the time for conversation is OVER! The fellow with the BASEBALL BAT and bad intentions should be put down like the “rabid varmint” he is. Assuming his accomplice was far enough away to preclude a good safe shot or heading for parts unknown, then holding your fire is prudent. IF he’s advancing or close enough for a good shot — which means he’s almost close enough to do the Lady harm —, then he too should have been dispatched.

* Without the bodies, evidence, or a video, we don’t know if this story is true.

Once again, I have no reason to doubt the Lady’s story. But, in tune with that “french model” commercial, “couldn’t put it on the internet if it was not true”, we must reserve judgment. Even so, this is a good learning lesson about the “facts of life”.

I recognize that the world is a dangerous place. I would personally help “arm” every woman who wants to protect themselves. I will vigorously oppose any attempt to disarm “We, The People” because I have personally met survivors of the Shoah (aka Holocaust), understand that it takes a Gooferment to commit genocide, and “anti-gun” politicians are all about “control”.

ENDNOTE: Can’t stop madmen with diktats

Now mass shootings are the news media’s fault? »

This video is making the rounds on Facebook and Twitter and purports to be a four-minute solution to gun violence. Simple, right? It’s the media’s fault: News organizations spend too much time coveri…

No, but you can’t stop madmen with diktats. I like the like “put these bastards down”.

And the sad reality of life, only you can protect yourself.

Or little children dead in a “gun free zone”.

By the end of March, I should have my concealed carry permit. I’m backing up words with actions. What about you?

I especially thought it was funny when there was an attempt to get the journalists who outed the NY gun owners to put sings in front of their houses that these were “Gun free zones”. Probably every gun owner should put one in front of their house. Nah, I guess that would be “entrapment”. But a measure worth considering! Clean up the gene pool.

And, yes, I’m pro-life and anti-aggression, but I’m a porcupine! Not a patsy.

[JR: That's what happens in the Pepuls Republik of Nu Yuk. You get "VD". VICTIM DISARMAMENT! Need some "sheepdogs" in the flock. Add a little risk to the criminal's lives. Guess wrong and your criminal career is over. Perhaps, sadly, permanently.]
