Guns never solve anything … [Darleen Click]
… except when used by a law-abiding citizen to save the life of his daughter.
St. Louis police say a 17 year old girl was outside of her home getting something from a car when two armed men confronted her and demanded that she return to her home.
The girl`s father saw the suspects walking his daughter toward the home. That`s when police say the teen`s father, a 34 year old man, got his gun and fired several shots at the suspects, hitting both of them. The girl`s mother, also 34, got another gun and fired a round as well, not hitting either suspect.
The first suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The second suspect ran away, got into the first suspect`s car and contacted his brother to take him to the hospital.
Police identify the suspect who was killed as 31 year old Terrell Johnson from north St. Louis. The second suspect- a 33 year old man- is hospitalized in critical but stable condition with gunshot wounds to his chest and both thighs. Police say he will face charges.
No reasonable person can argue that this family, including a five-year-old son who was in the house, would not have wound up a statistic — “tragic story of slain family” — if it weren’t for the fact of firearms in the house.
Then again, the gun-grabbers are the definition of unreasonable.Tags: guns, second amendment
