Americans need guns. That is absolutely not in dispute among any sane people. If there had been armed people in the vicinity when many jihad attacks began, they would have been stopped sooner than they were.
There is one aspect of the Wall Street Journal editorial linked below, however, that warrants further comment. “Security officers in Garland, Texas, prevented mass casualties by killing two jihadists in 2015 trying to shoot up a contest featuring cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.”
“Security officers”? No. I had to hire my own SWAT team, or I (and many attendees) wouldn’t be alive today. So no, I fully support the idea that an armed citizenry can prevent crimes, but the Garland attack on my free speech event was not a good example of the value of private access to a gun.
What’s more, the FBI had an informant tracking these jihadis, who was in constant communication with them, and the informant didn’t take any action whatsoever to either warn me or to protect me and the other people at the event.
Why not? Did the Obama FBI want me dead as an example of what happens to those who dare to exercise their freedom of speech regarding Islam? See my Breitbart article here laying out the evidence and asking the questions that so far remain unanswered. Why is the FBI stonewalling in the face of my repeated requests for information? What do they have to hide?
I explain all this detail in my book FATWA: Hunted in America.
“A Plumber With a Rifle,” Wall Street Journal, November 6, 2017 (thanks to David):
A neighbor saves lives in Texas with a legal gun and some quick action.
The world is trying to figure out what evil, or madness, caused Devin Kelley to kill 26 people and wound 20 more at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday morning. But forgive us if we focus on Stephen Willeford, the local plumber who saved lives by grabbing his rifle and firing at Kelley.
Freeman Martin, the Texas Department of Public Safety chief, said Mr. Willeford “grabbed his rifle and engaged the suspect” as he left the church….
