I post this because, in light of the shootings in Aurora, Colorado, gun ownership once again is getting a bad rap from some people. So, for the umpteenth millionth time, I want to again say that it is not the guns that do harm. It's the wrong people getting them. Even with gun control, those who want to do evil with guns are still going to get access to them. So why not allow law abiding citizens to level the playing field with their own weapons? What good can owning guns do? This article should be the poster child for the answer to that question. Yes, we will always have monsterous douche bags around, but guns in the hands of good guys who respect guns for what they are, and who know how to use them properly, will always be a blessing. Yes, I still fiercely support the Second Amendment.SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A citizen with a gun stopped a knife wielding man as he began stabbing people Thursday evening at the downtown Salt Lake City Smith's store.
Police say the suspect purchased a knife inside the store and then turned it into a weapon. Smith's employee Dorothy Espinoza says, "He pulled it out and stood outside the Smiths in the foyer. And just started stabbing people and yelling you killed my people. You killed my people."
Espinoza says, the knife wielding man seriously injured two people. "There is blood all over. One got stabbed in the stomach and got stabbed in the head and held his hands and got stabbed all over the arms."
Then, before the suspect could find another victim - a citizen with a gun stopped the madness. "A guy pulled gun on him and told him to drop his weapon or he would shoot him. So, he dropped his weapon and the people from Smith's grabbed him".
