The Constitution defends us against tyranny. One of the most tyrannical things government can do is prevent us from defending ourselves. Here is our Second Amendment at work:
A customer at a 7-Eleven store outside Seattle shot and killed a masked man who attacked a clerk with an ax early Sunday.
Investigators said the shooting happened at the store in White Center at approximately 5:45 a.m. local time. Witnesses said the man entered the store and swung a hatchet toward the customer before turning his attention to the clerk.
As the assailant attacked, the customer pulled out a pistol and fired, hitting the suspect. The clerk suffered minor injuries to his stomach and the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.
The hero is an unnamed 60-year-old gent who comes in every morning for coffee.
Authorities said the man who shot the attacker had a concealed carry permit and likely would not face charges as a result of his action.
“This could have been a lot worse,” King County Sheriff’s Sergeant Cindi West told KCPQ. “The clerk could be the one laying there dead on the floor right now.”
The ax-wielding maniac’s motives are unknown. Most likely he is violently insane, like a lot of people running around lose, making self-defense everyone’s urgent responsibility.
