Texan Defends 2nd Amendment, But His Pro-Gun Shirt Steals the Show
Our founding fathers put the 2nd Amendment in place for a reason. As with Sandy Hook, and the NYC attack, after the shooting this week at a church in Texas, Democrats came out shouting and demanding more gun control! We all know guns don’t kill people. Evil people kill people. But just like with the shooting on the baseball field and Rep. Scalise, thankfully there were good guys with guns who saved others from getting shot. Thankfully we have what’s called the 2nd Amendment!
The fact that the killer was only able to buy a gun because of a clerical error on the Air Force’s part, or the fact that he was stopped by another man with a gun, didn’t seem to matter a whit to those who were covering the event.
No surprise there, right? I mean it’s not like the MSM or liberals believe that we should have a 2nd Amendment in place to protect innocent people. They would rather see more gun laws and more gun control put in place by our government. The liberals and the MSM still believe the gun control laws are working!
I doubt that Democrats or the MSM will tell you the statistics of gun crimes, especially on the weekends in Chicago. Blacks killing other blacks. That’s because the MSM only knows one narrative – gun control. That’s it! They don’t want to hear facts about the city of Chicago and the worst gun crimes in America that don’t work. In fact, they don’t even want to report on that news and they certainly don’t want to talk about the 2nd Amendment.
The fact of the matter is, if citizens were not allowed to carry a gun for protection, thanks to the 2nd Amendment, we would be in serious trouble and there would have been more shot on that baseball field with Rep. Scalise and in the church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
The fact that Kelley was stopped by another man with a gun, didn’t seem to matter a bit to the liberals or MSM covering the event.
The same cannot be said for Texan Mike Jordan, a man whose son was across the street from First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs when he witnessed the horrifying event that killed 26 individuals. Interviewed by Laura Ingraham for her Fox News show Monday night, Jordan wore what might be the most epic rejoinder in defense of the 2nd Amendment we’ve seen.
It was a T-shirt that said, “Buy a Gun, Annoy a Liberal.”
Jordan’s stand for 2nd Amendment rights didn’t stop with his attire. He also noted that an acquaintance of his son, who usually legally carries, didn’t bring his gun along to church that day.
“A small town like this, you know, people go to church, they disarm, leave their guns in the car, because you don’t expect something like this to happen,” Jordan said.
THE 2nd AMENDMENT MATTERS!
“What if this was the day he didn’t leave that firearm at home? What if he did take it with him? …
“If you have one person on the inside that is armed to return fire, it may not have stopped people from dying,” Jordan added. “But it would have been a distraction, it would have gotten that guy’s attention.”
While no one in the church stopped the killer, another armed citizen did: namely, Stephen Willeford.
“I kept hearing the shots, one after another, very rapid shots — just ‘pop pop pop pop’ and I knew every one of those shots represented someone, that it was aimed at someone, that they weren’t just random shots,” Willeford said, according to KHBS-TV.
That’s when he loaded his magazine and ran toward the First Baptist Church, not even bothering to put on his shoes.
“He saw me and I saw him,” Willeford said. “I was standing behind a pickup truck for cover.”
“I know I hit him,” he added. “He got into his vehicle, and he fired another couple rounds through his side window. When the window dropped, I fired another round at him again.”
Willeford eventually flagged down a motorist who chased the gunman until he lost control, at which point he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Of the two men, Stephen Willeford was legally allowed to own a firearm under the law. The shooter was not, but the government failed. Willeford stopped what could have been a greater tragedy.
That, apparently, is what annoys liberals — their bureaucracy failed, but a brave armed citizen stepped in and averted greater tragedy.
So liberals can talk about gun control all they want, but the fact is if Willeford had not been there, if the 2nd Amendment was not supported, this tragedy would have been much worse.
It wasn’t the gun laws that failed the American people, it was the BUREAUCRACY!
