Legal Gun Owner Saves Boy in Manchester

Here is another example of a legal gun owner stopping a crime without wild shootouts in the streets or even a single shot having to be fired:

A teenager was kicked and beaten while on his way to school in Manchester on Tuesday, but an armed witness drove off the attacker, police said


Police said a witness told them that the man was grabbing a chain-link fence next to him so he could jump on top of the victim as he lay on the ground. The witness said he approached the attacker and told him to stop, but the man then advanced on the witness.

The witness told police that he showed the attacker a handgun, prompting the man to run away. Police said the witness has a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

Without the right for responsible citizens to keep and bare arms this story could very likely have been much different.
