Remember Joe Biden said about gun control “even if we can only save one life, we have to take action.”…well in Ohio the 2nd amendment saved not one but TWO lives yesterday.
Heller v. District of Colombia (Case: 554 U.S. 570)
Justice Scalia wrote;
“…The conclusion of the court was that, The 2nd Amendment guarantee of the ‘Right to Bear Arms’ was a personal, not corporate, right; that it guaranteed the right to keep and bear those types of firearms typically possessed by law abiding citizens for the lawful purposes for use in personal defense as well as a deterrent against tyranny.”
A central Ohio man told police that he pulled his gun and shot a robber who had just held him up at gunpoint.
Columbus police said 34-year-old Kelby Smith was robbed at gunpoint Monday night while with his 2-month-old son. Smith said the robber pointed a gun at his head as he bent down to shield the car carrier holding his infant son.
After Smith handed over some money, the robber fled and pointed the gun back at them. Smith — who has a concealed-carry permit — said that’s when he pulled his gun and shot the suspect.
The robber got away, but a short time later an injured man showed up at a hospital matching the description of the suspect. He later underwent surgery.
No charges have been filed.
