A Georgia gun owner is labeled a hero after stopping a car thief and saving the life of the woman clinging to the hood.
A Georgia concealed carry permit holder put a stop to an attempted carjacking at the Fast Track Car Wash in Smyrna on Friday afternoon.
While the victim was vacuuming her vehicle, a teenage male came out of a red van parked next to her and attempted to drive away with her car. The suspect began to speed up after the owner of the white Honda jumped onto the hood with the intent of stopping him from driving away. A Smyrna, Georgia city worker was passing by and drew his gun.

Anti-gun Journalist Admits Wife Wished for Gun When Criminal Struck
Don’t you just love titles like that? Putting my amusement aside, this is one of the main reasons I argue my point to anti-gun advocates.
Later on, Williams remarked, “Guns do not make me feel secure. Guns scare me. And it seems to me that we have an invitation here to have more guns.” –
This has been one of my main points since the get-go. People are afraid of guns. Seeing a gun when you know how to handle them properly doesn’t normally strike you with fear. Most of the time, you can tell if someone is trained or not simply by how they are holding their gun, what their stance is like, etc. Having this knowledge and educating yourself on proper gun handling and training could save your life, so why are people afraid of it? Because people are afraid of what they don’t understand and what they’ve never done. Think back to when you first learned to drive a car. Did the thought of having NO idea what you were doing freak you out a bit? It sure did for me! Driving now has become second nature. The same thing happens with a gun.
Secondly, once people realize that they CAN be victims of crime, they start to look at the world in a whole new light. My post yesterday about the naked man attacking a woman through her sunroof– did you listen to her in the video? She was sobbing, saying how afraid she was now because she didn’t know that could happen to her. She also commented that this incident has made her more aware of her surroundings. Now think back to the post I put about a week ago on my own personal experience. I was just some care-free college student walking around alone in a dark parking lot at night. Did I think anything could happen to me? No. Do I realize now that I could be attacked at any moment? Yes, because things happen. Attackers don’t come after you when they feel that you are aware that they’re there. Now this lady. She had her back turned and was messing with her credit card. Boom. Her car was stolen. LUCKILY she wasn’t hurt. Things like this could happen to me or you or anyone else at any moment. Call me paranoid, I don’t really care.
Carrying a gun is for YOUR safety. Studies have shown that carrying a gun actually makes your attacker LESS likely to target you.
The work of Florida State Professor of Criminology Gary Kleck determined that “[r]obbery and assault victims who used a gun to resist were less likely to be attacked or to suffer an injury than those who used any other methods of self-protection or those who did not resist at all.”
“This is what happens when people take a stand against crime”. Exactly. I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Check out this video! A woman was almost a victim of a robbery when an armed citizen steps in, scares the suspects, and waits until the police arrive to take them to prison.
‘Don’t Mess with Texas’ seems to fit this situation well. Remember my friends, you don’t stop crime by taking guns away from law-abiding citizens, you stop crime by placing them in their hands.
On April 20 a Houston, Texas homeowner shot and killed an intruder who kicked in the door to the home.
According to Click2Houston.com, the man allegedly kicked in the homeowner’s door around 4:50 a.m on Easter morning.
The homeowner and his wife were at home at the time and police report “the 56-year old homeowner feared for his life.” He therefore “shot the intruder twice in the abdomen.”
The intruder was “rushed to Ben Taub General Hospital where he later died.”

Well, Happy Easter everyone!
I was a little surprised to read this from Breitbart earlier today. First off, kudos to the homeowners for defending themselves. That seems to be so frowned upon in this country. Yet, the silly thing is, if the homeowners were harmed/killed by the intruder, we’d hear nothing but “my condolences to the victims” but when the intruder is killed, we hear all about MORE GUN CONTROL. Pathetic. We just can’t win here can we?
My next comment is why on earth would this guy break in at 5am on Easter morning? Pretty much one of the only days out of the year in which everyone goes to church and he chooses to come in when he knows they’re home.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s sad that this man died but please don’t spew off the “desperate times call for desperate measures”. This man should not have broken into anyone’s home regardless of whatever struggles he may have been facing at the time. I just hope the homeowner doesn’t get charged for anything. We’ve all seen how the alternative ends up. Don’t believe me? Look up my post from a couple of months back about the unarmed pregnant woman and legally blind man who were attacked, beaten, and raped in the middle of the night. I also might add that they were hardcore anti-gun advocates. Ironic, huh? That in their time of need, a gun could have saved them from such a horrific experience.
Here’s something to make you chuckle- The top comment is from ‘Archie Bunker’ – “Well, Hillary just lost another voter”. Too bad the dead apparently vote too. Man, don’t get my hopes up Archie!
A Jet’s Pizza delivery driver in Redford, MI found himself protecting his life around 11 PM on Saturday night when two attackers attempted to rob him at gunpoint. Luckily, the delivery driver had a gun of his own.
According to the police reports, the victim was making a delivery to a residence in Grayfield when he encountered to individuals posing as customers. One grabbed him while the other pointed a gun at him, demanding money. The delivery driver, who was also armed (LEGALLY), then fired a couple of shots towards the attacker. The two robbers then fled the scene to a waiting vehicle while the delivery driver ran to his own vehicle and dialed 911. A couple of hours later, Clarence Sanders, 27, arrived at the hospital with multiple gun shot wounds. On Monday, Sanders was arrainged at the hospital on a charge of armed robbery and the driver of the get-away car was arrested. A warrant for arrest is currently under process for the second attacker.
Now that you have the story, I want to take a second and further encourage citizens to own and carry. This situation could have ended horribly for the delivery boy had he NOT BEEN ARMED. He LAWFULLY possessed a firearm which in turn, saved his life and but an armed robber in prison. Did he KILL the attacker? No, but he sure didn’t take the fall for it himself.
Truth is, no one knows when things like this are going to happen. Regardless of whether you know it or not, THESE THINGS DO HAPPEN and they could very well happen to you. Disarming citizens who lawfully possess a firearm and don’t choose to abuse it are not the problem when it comes to gun violence, criminals are. If you really want to prevent gun violence, educate yourselves and your families. The only way to prevent gun violence is to take a stand against violent criminals and learn how to properly defend yourself in a threatening situation. Don’t let your families walk into a situation like this and become a victim of a violent/deadly crime.
As for all the criminals and thugs out there, be careful. Your victims are packing.
