A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Protection

Here’s a little plug for the 2nd Amendment – a right that shall not be infringed.  Story from Israel National News.

PA Terrorist Shot Dead By Quick-Thinking Civilian

A Palestinian Authority terrorist was shot dead late Monday afternoon as he attempted to stab two people at a bus stop near Shiloh, 20 miles north of Jerusalem. The armed civilian who put an end to the attack is a school principal from the town of Itamar.

After 5:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon, an Arab man approached the Shiloh Junction bus stop and began talking to two people, an adult and a teenager, who were waiting there.

…After a short conversation in broken English and Hebrew, which aroused the suspicion of the two, the 16-year-old young man decided to move away, behind a concrete barrier at the bus stop while the older man placed his hand on his personal weapon.

At that point, the attacker suddenly pulled out a six-inch knife and tried to stab the adult Israeli. Because of his fear of getting entangled with the law for using his weapon, the would-be victim waited until the last second to draw his personal weapon. Hillel Maeir described that as the terrorist’s knife was coming down toward the Jewish man, he managed to cock his pistol and shoot the terrorist all in the same motion of drawing his weapon.

The bullet knocked the Arab off his feet and wounded him. When the terrorist then reached into his shirt, the civilian interpreted the motion as a possible attempt to detonate an explosive vest, and he shot again, this time killing his attacker. It later turned out that the PA resident was reaching for a second, concealed knife.

Think of this when November comes around.

35. Do you support state legislation to:

  • ban the manufacture, sale, and possession of handguns?  Yes. (Obama’s response on a questionnaire – with handwritten notes on it.)

    what has banning guns in the US got to do with this story..the middle east is a totally different place than the US.. i also think the US/UK should evacuate all israeli citizens and just nuke the middle east and start again..both the US/UK have screwed up the whole region..kill the lot of them

    The point is that law-abiding armed citizens are a threat to criminals – and the potential criminal would know that.

    Making handguns illegal in the U.S. isn’t going to mean a damn thing to a criminal who wants one. Look what making drugs illegal has done to stem the tide of drug abuse and its attendant violence. Another example is the howling success of banning alcohol back in ’29.
