Fresh on the heels of the story involving gun rights and the Hermans in Loganville comes news of another "pro-gun rights" story with a twist. According to an article posted on KHOU.com this past Friday:

"HOUSTON--A couple of strangers came to the rescue when a man was robbed at gunpoint. Now, the victim wants to say thank you to the Good Samaritans.

Police believe the criminal who was canvassing a neighborhood in the 2500 block of Wichita near Hermann Park had no idea what he was in for when he picked his target.

The victim in this case had just walked back to his car from a bar around the corner.

Kevin Dorsey says he hadn’t even closed his car door Thursday night when a man wearing all black and a ski mask put a gun to his chest. The man took Dorsey’s wallet, cell phone and car keys.

After he was robbed, Dorsey began running down the street and says two men in a Mercedes asked him what had happened.

Dorsey told them and they not only caught up with the suspect, but they started shooting at him.

The suspect fired back. In the end, the two witnesses turned vigilantes won and took down the bad guy.

“I don’t believe in guns,” said Dorsey. “I don’t own a gun. I’m totally at the mercy of my saviors. They obviously sent two angels to help me. These people protected me when I couldn’t protect myself.”"

So here's another story where an armed citizenry proved necessary to protect an innocent victim. But that's not the end of the story. The real reason I've posted it here is because of what happened next. As reported by KHOU.com:

"After the robber had been shot, police say he jumped over a fence and was attacked by a German Shepherd. THAT ATTACK PREVENTED HIM FROM GETTING AWAY (emphasis added).

The suspect, identified as Christopher Hutchins, is being treated at Ben Taub Hospital. He’s expected to recover."

http://www.khou.com/news/local/Robbery-victim-wants-to-thank-Good-Samaritans-who-came-to-his-rescue--186572461.html

IMHO - this story illustrates that gun rights have their place, but note that it took a German Shepherd to close the deal, and to ensure that the perpetrator was apprehended.

The moral of this story? HOW 'BOUT DEM DAWGS!!!

Yes, Sebe. Dawgs can bring down the evil doers. But in all seriousness, Why might we not have K-9 patrols instead of armed cops roaming around the school camupus. I doubt a deranged untrained gunman could actually take down 6 or 7 charging german shepherds. He might get one or two but I think a pack attack, or code blue, just might do the trick even if the idiot had an assualt weapon.

I'm thinking that it might be more expensive to have dogs on patrol (trainers/handlers, transport or maintenance of dogs on site, etc.) than just having a few armed LE. I saw a news article yesterday which said they may soon have armed JANITORS in Montpelier, Ohio confronting potential/actual perpetators on school grounds. See:

Armed and dangerous. Clint Eastwood with a scrub bucket. Make his day. What is this world coming to?

sebekm commented on Monday, Jan 14, 2013 at 14:10 PM

...and here's a article which discusses school districts around the country that are now planning to hire armed security staff:

The closest thing, and this is very hard for me to say, is that trained armed guards in the schools may be part of the solution. Along with bans of mega round carrying magazines, and EXTENSIVE background checks on gun buyers. And...SHUT DOWN THE GUN SHOWS. A misnomer if there ever was one. KILLING SHOWS would be more appropriate.
How can you trust a person with tobacco spit running down his chin and two teeth to do a proper background check?

It's not possible. Even if TOT wants the job.

sebekm commented on Monday, Jan 14, 2013 at 18:11 PM

I knew someone years ago who purchased a rifle at a gun show, and he said the guy who sold it to him could have eaten an ear of corn through a picket fence.....

Saw this on Fox News last night at 10.

Less then 3% of crimes with guns involved assault rifles.

Less then 2% of crimes with guns used more then 3 bullets.

Less the 1% of crimes with guns involved legal guns or owners.

So what are the new ban on assault rifles, high capacity magazines, and registration and back ground checks going to do?

I do agree that ALL weapons sold should have a back ground check attached to them. A special license for assault weapons and high capacity magazines should exists.
Back ground checks are a must.

What about gun shows golf?

sebekm commented on Tuesday, Jan 15, 2013 at 17:28 PM

Golfy: I agree with all of your recommendations. On the stats - what they don't closely look at are the crimes that are bringing "gun control" to the forefront of the national discussion: the mass murders of groups of people or students/children in a closed setting. Those are the crimes that have everybody up-in-arms, and those are the crimes that are the focus of "gun control" now.

I don't recall any of those mass murders being committed by somebody armed solely with a .38 revolver, or an axe, or a switchblade knife. What comes to mind is the heavily-armed-with-automatic-weapons-and-high-capacity-magazines "criminal" gunning down people in a movie theater or in a classroom. THAT's what nobody wants to see again. It's true - that particular crime comprises probably .00001% of all crimes committed with firearms. But when they are of such high profile, and they happen again and again and again - eventually a society reaches the tipping point. IMHO - the slaughter of those small children at Sandy Hook Elementary School was that tipping point.

We will undoubtedly enact a whole slew of "gun control" laws and measures which will obliquely affect the entire gun-toting population with the intent on preventing incidents which comprise only .00001% of all gun-related crimes.

And I can't say I disagree with that.

NEWS FLASH: Believe it or not, now we have the "conspiracy theorists" claiming that those children were murdered in order to "to push a government agenda. In this case, that agenda is making the U.S. public afraid so that they'll be more dependent on government, as well as forcing a referendum on gun control."

http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/Con...

I wonder if there is a "grassy knoll" in the vicinity of Sandy Hook Elementary?

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Jan 15, 2013 at 17:33 PM

No Brother Sebe, but it sounds a lot like dawnstryker and her theories.

sebekm commented on Tuesday, Jan 15, 2013 at 17:39 PM

I wonder if we'll hear from her again. I guess I gave her a pretty hard time on the conspiracies. My bad.

golfnut31316 commented on Tuesday, Jan 15, 2013 at 20:28 PM

Same thing with gun shows. None should be sold without registration and back ground checks. Some states already have this going on and have been for years.

Funny thing about the conspiracy theory. That thought crossed my mind too. Hmmm. Could it be? Who knows.

up2sumptin commented on Tuesday, Jan 15, 2013 at 20:49 PM

I say, if you have been convicted of a violent crime (DV, rape, armed robbery, etc) then you should not be allowed to carry. As the law stands, you can carry but not concealed.
