Good Samaritan Stops Robbery then Buys Scared Kids Candy

Liberal Gun Grabbers like to pretend that firearms can only be used to commit crimes. They do this in an effort to scare people into believing that our nation needs more gun control – when in reality we need less.

The truth is that firearms are used far more often to protect innocents from evildoers than vice versa.

Another example of this happened just a couple of days ago in Texas.

A woman had just parked her car in the parking lot of the local Family Dollar and was making her way into the store when a thug grabbed her purse and got into a nearby car. The car began to drive away, dragging the woman along because she was still holding on to her purse. That’s when our hero stepped in to save the day.

A Good Samaritan appeared seemingly out of nowhere with his gun drawn, ordering the criminals to stop what they were doing and exit the car. Caught red handed, the criminals did as they were told and other bystanders called 911. The Good Samaritan had the thugs lay on the ground until police arrived to clean up the scene.

Then our hero bought some candy for his kids who had become quite worried during the whole ordeal.

The manager of the store described what happened for the local news.

“This lady opens her car door, grabs the woman’s purse and they reverse. While they’re trying to reverse, the lady is holding on to her purse still, chasing them all the way to the middle.”

“And that Good Samaritan came out, drew his weapon and scared them. And that’s when he pulled them out of the car.”

The man who first confronted them purchased some candy for his kids and drove away.

“The guy is something else,” said Vasquez. “He’s a hero.”

We need more men and women like this. Willing to carry and willing to come to the aid of their fellow man. The country and the world would be a much safer place if law abiding citizens could exercise their 2nd Amendment rights without fears that some liberal gun grabber would come along and berate them for their freedom. Guns save lives and stop crimes.
