Are you surprised?

U.S. Air Force Col. Rob Maness (ret.) observed that attacks of this nature would be less likely if the right to keep and bear arms weren’t curtailed.  “Why is a right to keep and bear arms essential to a free society?” he asked.  “Because citizens should not be forced to pick up a narwhal tusk and fire extinguisher to stop a terrorist, that’s why.”

An example occurred one day after the London attack, when an attempted armed robbery of a Hardee’s restaurant at an Atlanta suburb was thwarted by an armed bread delivery truck driver.

August 9, 2019
