” The folks at Moms Demand Action believe that Kroger is somehow a magical space where nothing bad ever happens, and ridicules anyone who thinks that they should be allowed to carry a concealed handgun on the premises. Time and again their fantasy has been patently disproven, but this time there’s a twist. At a Kroger in Arkansas this past Wednesday, an elderly man was being savagely beaten by seven people. One man, armed with a concealed handgun, decided to step in and try to save that man’s life. This is the true story of how a concealed handgun at Kroger saved lives.

  From Ozarks First:

  The 24-year-old says when he was leaving the grocery store he saw something he couldn’t ignore. “I saw seven people against one guy and I did not like those odds.”

  The out numbered man was elderly so Gene felt obligated to get involved. “Throw down, step to the side, draw, then up.”

  With the gun drawn the attackers turned their attention. “They kept yelling this isn’t your fight, you need to walk away you need to put the gun down,” Gene says.”

Anti-Gun Movement Runs Out Of Steam In 2014

 

 

 

 

 

” For gun policy watchers in 2014, the game has become a one-sided affair. Gun rights advocates continue to rack up political and legal victories, while the anti-gun movement “seems to have run out of steam entirely” says John Pierce, co-founder of OpenCarry.org, and a Virginia gun rights attorney specializing in ‘gun trusts’ and the restoration of gun rights under Virginia and federal law.

  2014 looked promising for gun rights from the ‘get-go’ when in February the Federal Ninth Circuit held that the Second Amendment does not permit states to require citizens to justify their need to carry guns. The Court struck down California’s “may issue” carry permit scheme, generally following the precedent set by the Seventh Circuit when it struck down the Illinois ban on carrying handguns in 2012.

  July 1st then brought clarity to open carry in Kansas when a law took effect to clearly preempt localities from banning open carry.

  And then on July 29th, Federal District Judge Frederick J. Sculin Jr. struck down the District of Columbia’s ban on carrying handguns in public. For several days thereafter, citizens legally carried handguns about the District without causing alarm or crime. Judge Sculin later stayed his ruling to allow the District time to enact a reasonable scheme of gun carry regulations. The District’s response so far has been to draft a draconian may-issue permitting scheme like the one struck down by the Ninth Circuit early this year, and, adding insult to injury, ban gun carriers access to public transportation, not even allowing gun owners to sit in the back of the bus.”
