“When seconds count, the police are minutes away”
Here’s another example of a good guy with a gun that is proving the gun grabbers wrong.
The store clerk in the video below was so lucky that someone showed up to help her…luckily the man was armed.
Watch as Man Who Viciously Beat Female Store Clerk Is Held at Gunpoint By an Armed Bystander; This Occurred on August 8th In Wenatchee, Washington

A career firefighter with a gun saved the day when he showed up in a gas station parking lot.
According to the Wenatchee World, 38-year-old Jaime Garcia-Aparicio assaulted a female gas station clerk with a beer bottle and then threw her on the ground.
Jesse Altizer was pulling into the gas station and saw the clerk and assailant running out of the store. The assailant was hitting the clerk and Altizer said he could just stand by and watch so he yelled for the man to stop.
Then the assailant began moving toward the passenger side of Altizer’s vehicle, where his young daughter was in the passenger seat, he said.
Altizer pulled his handgun from his glove compartment and came around the side of the vehicle to stop the man, he said.
He told the man to get on the ground, but the man refused, Altizer said. Altizer hit the man and was able to keep him on the ground until police arrived.
Who knows what would have happened if the man with the gun hadn’t shown up to save the day.
One more reason to own a gun…
HERE’S ANOTHER FAVORITE OF A GOOD GUY WITH A GUN:
It was a quiet day at a Lenexa, KS Costco, when a bad guy with a gun made his way into the store, claiming he was there to “kill people.” Fortunately, for the Costco shoppers, an off-duty Kansas police captain (a good guy) was also shopping at Costco with a gun.
Captain Michael Howell was on his day off when he saw the gunman burst into the store with a pistol in Lenexa, Kansas, and begin screaming ‘I’m going to kill people’.
But as gunman Roland Hunt made his way further into the store, Captain Howell was in hot pursuit with his gun drawn on Sunday.
The cop, who has worked for the Kansas City Police Department police for 22 years, can be seen stealthily trailing the man in the video.
He later shot the gunman dead when 58-year-old Hunt turned his revolver on the officer.
Neither Howell or any other customer was hurt.
The gunman had been a long-haul truck driver, was living in his truck in the car park of the Costco before he walked into the store brandishing the gun.
Captain Howell was modest about his heroism: ‘I’m just a cop doing my job.’
‘My greatest fear was we had kids with their moms, with their grandmas, with their dads,’ Howell said, according to Police One.
‘It was little kids running and screaming. And seeing the fear in their faces and knowing whatever it took, I had to do whatever necessary to end this threat so they wouldn’t get hurt.’ –Daily Mail
