Bottom line

  • Follow Editorials

Not only do thugs not want to sell back their guns (see editorial above), but they are desperate for more of them.

So desperate that three of them rammed a van right into the side of the Guns & Ammo Gunsmith building in Belvedere, S.C., early Thursday morning to load the van up with stolen guns.

Luckily the owner was not only on site but well-armed, killing one of the three and wounding the other two so badly they stopped at a Waffle House for help.

The owner says the three brazenly threatened to kill him, but he got the better of them.

One supposes there are legitimate uses for AR-15 semiautomatic rifles after all.

Such battles occur every day on American streets. We need not disarm the good guys, or expect the bad guys to do it themselves.

"Such battles occur every day
Unpublished

"Such battles occur every day on American streets?" Hyperbole much? All this means is the bad guys need to arm themselves better which they will assuredly do, since there are so many AR-15 type rifles available.

I guess we can thank Fast and Furious in part for that.

Second Amendment Lead

When you are in bed and a car with bad guys drives through a wall it's time to hit them right in the chest with Second Amendment lead until they scream "God bless the Constitution" with their dying breath. The estate of the dead crook should have to reimburse the owner for his bullets.

And they want to ban them.

The anti-gun types keep clamoring for an "assault weapon" ban. In case no one has noticed, we law abiding people are UNDER ASSAULT from thieves, thugs, and the occasional nutcase.

When 3 low life thugs crash a van through your wall in the middle of the night in an attempt to rob, and possibly kill, you and your family then THAT is an ASSAULT. Protecting yourself and your family against that type of ASSAULT is an EXCELLENT use of an AR-15 M4 style SEMI-AUTOMATIC carbine. That is what they are made for.....URBAN WARFARE.....which is pretty much what we have today when the thieves and thugs mark you as their target.

Bless Mr. Bayazes and his ability to put steel on target. We need many more like him.

Fast and Furious..

Someone mentioned the "Fast and Furious" debacle in an earlier post and it struck me that the same administration that gave guns to Mexican drug lords wants to restrict access of these same guns to law abiding Americans....

This may not have been this

This may not have been this group's first mission. Two weeks ago a gun shop Sumter County SC had the same thing happen, and multiple weapons weresuccessfully stolen. In April the same M.O. of crashing a stolen vehicle through the walls of a closed gun shop in Richland County SC resulted in the theft of guns and ammo. Sumter County and Richland County are working with Aiken County to see if these 3 similar cases are related. I wonder why our local media has not done the Google searches I did to see if this same thing has been happening elsewhere.
If these cases are related this could lead to a stash of weapons somewhere being used by gangstas against us law-abiding citizens.

You want to understand the real situation?

Google the very well-researched book, White Girl Bleed A Lot, and read some of the interviews with author Colin Flaherty, especially the one with Front Page Magazine. It's short but quite an eye-opener.

It's also all true, but the lamestream media will never report what's really going on beyond the rare sanitized, PC version presented as a non-event. YouTube may be what saves us.

The rotted life forms that tried to rob Mr. Bayazes are part of a much scarier reality and it's very nice that at least one of them won't be troubling us any more.
