Guns save lives--sometimes in unusual ways

Sometimes, you don't have to use it to shoot, or even scare, a bad guy:

Authorities said the 28-year-old man was driving in his station wagon on Industrial Avenue on the bridge over Pleasant Grove Creek when a hands-free cell phone device activated, startling him and causing the vehicle to veer into the chilly waters just before 9:00 a.m. Sunday.

The man, employed as an armed security officer at Thunder Valley Casino, found himself trapped inside his car about six to eight feet below the surface in the 50-degree water.

The Roseville Fire Department said the man used his handgun to shoot out his vehicle window, giving himself an opportunity to escape and swim to safety.
The anti-self-defense crowd wants to keep handguns out of cars. Maybe I should start referring to such types as the "pro-drowning lobby."

Pro-Drowning. You're exactly right. That is just how the Left takes over the argument and controls the narrative by the use of clever labels to discredit anyone who would argue an opposing view. That is why it is sometimes frustrating to debate them.

I say this story is bull$h!+ just like the Paul Harvey story of the guy using a .22 to replace a fuse in his car and getting shot in the leg. He did something stupid like shooting out the window through stupidity and then wrecking his car, making up the story afterwards.

Well, Anon, you can say what you want, but until you can back up you accusation of lying with some evidence, you've provided little reason for anyone to take you seriously.
