The Way You Get Shot

I wrote about Sheriff Chuck Wright of Spartanburg County before. He’s the man who said, “Gun control is when you can get your barrel back on the target quick. That’s gun control.” And then advised every decent person in his county to get concealed carry license. “That’ll fix it,” Sheriff Wright said.

It certainly does “fix it.” In Sheriff Wright’s own county, a man saved lives by shooting a 19-year-old robber at a Waffle House restaurant at two o’clock in the morning. When two armed robbers entered the restaurant with the intent of robbing it, a customer pulled out his Glock .45 and attempted to hold them until the deputies arrived. One of the robbers, the 19-year-old Dante Williams, pointed his gun at the customer. A second later, he was dead.

“The way you get shot by a concealed weapons permit holder is you point a gun at him,” the Sheriff said. He said he has no plans whatsoever to charge the customer. He acted perfectly legally.

Again, it is obvious: Guns save lives.
