Guns in the hands of good people protect you from guns in the hands of bad people!!
A woman carrying a firearm shot a man who assaulted a police officer in Dawson County, Georgia. Sergeant Randy Harkness, 52, arrived at a Georgia Chevron with a homeless man, whom he had given a ride to the gas station and was planning to also give some money too.
However, the homeless man began physically assaulting Harkness and, according to the Dawson County Sheriff, may have even tried to reach for his gun. Luckily, a gun owner was sitting in her car nearby and sprang into action after witnessing the scene.
Via The Daily Caller:
“She shot off a round. The guy got off the police officer and she shot another round and he was running that way I think, there were three shots,” said Aseem Kahn, the owner of the gas station.
The gunfire caused the homeless man to flee across the street to a McDonald’s, where he punched an elderly woman in the face and tried to steal her car. Several customers at the restaurant subdued the man and held him down until police arrived.
“They are the heroes because they kept him from injuring anybody else,” said Sharon Cheek, the shift manager at the McDonald’s.
“It could have been worse, mate, thank you for that lady who was carrying,” Kahn similarly said.

Just another case where guns in the hands of good people can save lives and even protect law enforcement people. This is at least two cases recently where private citizens have acted to stop criminals before they could hurt others.
The police have protected us for many years. Time for us to protect them.
She sounds like a guardian angel. Thank you for this!
