postheadericon Concealed Carrier Attacked In Drive-Thru Of McDonald’s — Why We Carry Everywhere

HIALEAH, FLORIDA — In a McDonald’s drive-thru, a concealed carrier was waiting to get to the teller to get his food. That was when Sergio Hernandez just walked up to the window and started chatting up the McDonald’s employee. To likely let Hernandez know that there were people waiting on their food, the concealed carrier honked his horn. That’s when Hernandez’s girlfriend attacked.

According to WSVN 7 News, Vanessa Puente, 20, rushed up to the driver’s side window and began wailing on it. He got out of the car to stop her hitting his vehicle and she began to attack him. Hernandez jumped in, punching him in the back of the head. When the driver tried to take out his cell phone to capture the incident on video, Puente allegedly knocked the phone out of his hand.

Left alone to defend against two violent attackers, the concealed carrier naturally feared for his life and took out his concealed carry handgun. He shot Hernandez once in the pelvis. Hernandez was transported to a nearby hospital and treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. Puente was taken into custody.

Come to find out, Puente was out awaiting trial for an unrelated felony offense. When the judge read her charges and saw Puente present herself, she chided the young woman’s actions and even questioned why Puente would be willing to risk everything over the honk of a car horn.

“This is because people honked their horn. OK,” said the judge.

While we can’t control for idiots, this concealed carrier did a decent job of standing his ground, attempting to de-escalate, and trying to dutifully report information to the police and his insurance in the midst of an attack. The problem was that he was dealing with two highly imbalanced, violent people.

Even he likely didn’t expect that outcome based upon the event. Hernandez is probably just another scum-sucking street-level thug holding up traffic with his minor-league game antics. The concealed carrier had no way of knowing Hernandez’s girlfriend would head off a dangerous assault upon him.

This concealed carrier did the right thing, ultimately. He used his gun to protect himself after all other options were exhausted. It’s not your job to get beat upon by two strangers in a parking lot. Some people don’t want to be responsible in defending their own lives. A concealed carrier is not one of those people.

In this case, the absolute right thing appears to be happening. Fuente can look forward to a long career in charm school, aka women’s prison, and Hernandez will likely do a little bit of time for the battery charge but he’ll have a permanent reminder on his hips of the cost of being an idiot out in public.

postheadericon New Terrorist Threats Highlight The Importance Of Armed Citizens At Polling Places… And Everywhere Else

By Robert Farago via The Truth About Guns

CBS News has learned about a potential terror threat for the day before the election. Sources told CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton that U.S. intelligence has alerted joint terrorism task forces that al Qaeda could be planning attacks in three states for Monday. It is believed New York, Texas and Virginia are all possible targets, though no specific locations are mentioned.”

Hmmm. Where could terrorists strike that would have a tremendous impact on the American psyche — on the eve of presidential election? I know! A polling station! A place where Americans gather in large numbers to vote! Turns out I’m not the first one to come to that conclusion.

As Election Day nears, federal law enforcement is planning for several worst-case scenarios.

Earlier this week, an alert warned local police of “polling places” being seen as “attractive targets” for “lone wolf”-type attacks by individuals motivated by violent extremist ideologies, sovereign citizen or other extremist activity.

What about warning voters, preferably armed voters? Not an issue in New York or Texas (surprisingly), where voters can’t be armed under law. Luckily, Virginia gun owners are not deprived of their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms when they vote.

Still, as a Texas resident banned from bearing arms when I vote, this news doesn’t give me warm fuzzier. There ought not to be a law.

postheadericon Homeless Woman Fights Off Attacker With A Gun — Why 2A Applies Everywhere

GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA — Amidst the rag-tag arraignment of tents, clotheslines, and make-shift living conditions, one Florida woman was able to defend herself from another man by use of a firearm. After a frantic 911 call to emergency services, the woman kept repeating “get off me” before disconnecting. By the time authorities arrived, 41-year-old Michael J. Wilson was found dead at the scene.

According to a statement given to the Hastings Tribune, the Gainesville Police Department is ruling that this shooting is a justifiable homicide by reason of self-defense.

For millions of Americans living on the fringes of society, the threat of violence is very real. In Florida, homeless camps have sprung up all along the state. These camps can sometimes spawn violent acts which make it even harder for many Americans to live peaceably.

Homeless villages have popped up especially frequently in places like Alachua County, where it’s estimated up to 1,300 homeless people live in semi-permanent camp settlements.

One such settlement is known as Dignity Village and it is home to some 200 homeless people who’ve set up in the area. It’s also been the site of some gruesome deaths as occasionally violence breaks out.

Homeless people come from all strata of social life. No real good statistics are kept by either Alachua County or in many other parts of Florida but police are obliged to respond to crimes as they are reported. For one woman living in a domestic abuse situation, a handgun may have just kept her from becoming just another lost soul in muck.

The right to bear arms is a right bestowed upon all American citizens — it’s good to see one woman was able to use it.
