Gaston, South Carolina April 23, 2016, WYFF News 4:

GASTON, S.C. —A Gaston man says his Second Amendment right helped land two men behind bars. Two Lexington County men were arrested after a high-speed chase near Gaston Thursday afternoon.

Police say it was a simple attempted traffic stop that turned into a high-speed chase.

“This chase started because Gaston police attempted to make a traffic stop on the two individuals due to a seat belt violation,” Capt. Adam Myrick with the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department said. “Actually, two of them – the passenger and the driver.” . . .

A homeowner, who wanted to remain anonymous, said the driver, Joseph Drafts, trespassed onto his property while fleeing from law enforcement personnel. It took the homeowner by surprise.

“I really just want to thank the Lord for keeping me and my family safe,” he said. “When the police told us there was a manhunt, we didn’t know if it was a manhunt because he was wanted for, you know, for what. We just knew he was in the area. We didn’t know why he was there.”

The homeowner said he dropped what he was working on, pulled out his gun and held Drafts at gunpoint. . . .

Orlando, Florida on April 25th, WFTV Channel 9 TV:

The incident happened at about 12:48 a.m. between Titus Bernard, 29, and Delvin Jamar Broner, 36, the Orlando Police Department said.

The altercation started as an argument between the two that was instigated by Broner, investigators said.

The situation escalated and Broner, a convicted felon, pulled out a gun.

Bernard, who had a valid concealed weapons permit, pulled his own gun and fired several times, killing Broner, police said.

“I don’t know what I would have done is someone had pulled a gun out on me like that,” said a witness. “He’s alright then right? That’s the law. Zimmerman pulled it off.”

Hot springs, Arkansas on April 26, 2016 from the Sentinel-Record:

A would-be robber armed with a rifle fled from a local insurance agency Tuesday afternoon when the owner shot at him twice, after first thinking the attempted robbery was a joke.

“Who holds up an insurance agency? I was first thinking that this was a joke,” said Mike Waymack, president of Hastings-Waymack Insurance at 436 Broadway Ave.

Hot Springs police officers were still searching at presstime for the suspect, described by Waymack as a white male, 6 feet, 2 inches tall, completely covered in camouflage and wearing a black ski mask.

    Concealed carry are activists willing to confront these criminals when everyone else will stand back and watch or wait for the police.

      @WATCHDOG – The “activists” to whom you refer are law-abiding Americans who are subjected [arguably extra-Constitutionally] to background checks which assure law enforcement agencies and the federal government that they are “suitable” candidates for exercising a Constitutional right, often only after passing courses, written examinations, and one or more practical tests of their abilities to handle a firearm safely and within legal constraints (which vary widely by locale and change more frequently than liberals change their panties). These “activists” are common, everyday folks who would prefer that their own dead bodies not “…stand back and watch or wait for the police” to draw chalk outlines around their corpses or the corpses of those whose safety they take responsibility for assuring as best they can. After all, the law enforcement officers (LEOs) in which you place such trust are often far less trained in the safe and appropriate use of firearms than the citizens they serve. And remember, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has already ruled that LEOs have *no* duty to protect the citizens they supposedly serve; to believe otherwise only proves ignorance, which naïveté and a lack of education both support in spades!

      Cogito, ergo armatus sum.
