A seventy-year-old veteran was dropping off his friend when two strangers pulled up next to his car.


The strange men began asking for directions, but once the vet began to answer, one of the men drew a firearm.


But the veteran was prepared, and took out his own weapon, opening fire on both suspects.


One of the thugs succumbed to his gunshot wounds. The other was injured and is in police custody.


The authorities have filed no charges against the veteran, saying that he was well within his rights.


In fact, both of the suspects were wanted for other violent crimes, and the county attorney believes that law enforcement will be able to solve possibly dozens of other armed robberies – all due to the brave, responsible action of one armed American.


Local news reports:

An armed veteran from St. Louis killed one man and injured another during an armed robbery attempt in the metro east.

But, on Friday, prosecutors said the veteran's actions are justified, and could help solve dozens of other violent crimes in Illinois and Missouri.

Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons said this case should serve as a warning to criminals. If you’re coming to the Metro East to break the law, you could end up staring down the barrel of a gun.

Jefferson City, MO – The Missouri State Legislature gave final passage to Senate Bill 656, the “Constitutional Carry” bill, making Missouri the tenth state to fully recognize the right to carry.

This was done during the state legislature’s special veto override session on Wednesday afternoon, in which Missouri legislators voted to override Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of the bill.

The National Association for Gun Rights delivered over 12,000 petitions from our Missouri members to their legislators, and placed over 20,000 calls, all supporting Constitutional Carry. They sent over 800,000 emails in Missouri supporting the bill, reached another 127,000 Missouri Facebook viewers, and had staff on the ground in Jefferson City through the veto vote.

Without the Second Amendment, this woman doesn't think her family would have survived an encounter with a knife-wielding man. 

Local news reports:

Katie Claxton said she was afraid for her life Sunday night when she was approached by a man wielding a large knife.

The Springfield woman said she cringes to think what might have happened if her husband hadn't pointed a gun at the man and scared him off.

"Our Second Amendment right to carry is what saved our lives," Claxton said. "If we didn't have our right to carry, I feel like we wouldn't be here today."
