Re: An Armed Society (part 2)
It’s also funny about how armed citizens usually fight back and WIN!
The NRA’s website has a search engine for their “Armed Citizen” columns over the years. I never fail to turn to it the minute I get my monthly American Hunter magazine. It’s one of my favorite parts of the magazine. One such entry, from December of last year (published in the March issue):
The Morning Call, Allentown, PA, 12/06/07
American Rifleman Issue: 3/1/2008
Rob Pierce, Jr. was walking to dinner when two men, one a self-proclaimed Crips gang member and the other wielding a handgun, accosted him. With a gun to his back, Pierce was dragged across the street to a dimly lit area and told he was about to be killed. “It was like hell,” he explained. Pierce, a concealed-carry permit holder, drew a .357 revolver and shot one of the suspects, causing both suspects to flee. They were later apprehended. Northampton County, Pa., District Attorney John Morganelli said he hoped the incident would teach “these young thugs” that the good guys might be armed. “We don’t expect our citizens to wait and get shot. As long as I’m district attorney here, I’m probably going to err on the side of the citizen,” Morganelli said, adding he supports concealed-carry laws.
