Whenever the Fake News Media talks about guns, you are likely going to hear about gun victims — the victims of school shootings, workplace violence or random shootings — but President Trump showed the other side of the gun to the American people Friday when he spoke to the National Rifle Association.
Instead of talking about gun victims, he talked about gun heroes — people who saved lives by legal use of their Second Amendment right to bear arms. As the president introduced three such heroes, it was an emotional and thought-provoking climax to a near flawless speech at the NRA’s convention in Indianapolis.
April Evans was home alone with her 2-year-old daughter when an intruder broke down her door and came running toward her. She “shot him twice and held him at gunpoint until police arrived.” Evans explained that this incident changed her life forever:
“I’ve never been more afraid, but I’ve been standing strong, and I’ve told my story again and again because with each person I’ve told, they stood a little taller knowing that if I could protect myself and my family that they could too. Protecting my family would not be possible without the right to bear arms.”
Next up was Mark Vaughn, the CEO of a meat-packing plant in Oklahoma, who told the story of how a knife-wielding employee had gone on a rampage and was attacking people in the plant. Vaughn was alerted to the attack, got his AR-15, and hurried to the office where the attack was taking place.
“I saw a man attacking a woman in the neck and head with a large knife. I yelled. he stopped, paused for a moment and ran at full speed toward me. At about 18 feet I fired three rounds from my AR-15 carbine, immediately incapacitating the subject…. I was able to take that action because I had a gun and was prepared to use it.”
The suspect had already decapitated one woman, but who knows how many other lives were saved by Vaughn’s bravery and his possession of a gun.
My new book is “The Media Matrix: What If Everything You Know Is Fake,” which offers many examples of the press being the enemy of the truth. To support my work, please consider buying “The Media Matrix” or my “Why We Needed Trump” trilogy, which documents the downward spiral of the USA before Trump arrived on the scene. The books are available at Amazon in paperback or Kindle editions. Go here for a free sample: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/sitb/B07PDQBJM4
