Armed Property Owner Helps End Police Manhunt
Article first appeared at Ammo Land.
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Somewhere, everyday in the USA, 2100+ people use a gun for self defense, to stop a crime or save the lives of themselves or their family.
“We believe that the American public deserve to understand that on the average, guns save 2,191 lives and are used to thwart crimes every day,” says Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation
Most times you won’t see these tales on the news as it does not fit the main stream media’s story line of “Guns and Gun Owners are Bad“.
This is just one of those stories;
Police attempted to stop two men in a truck in Gaston, S.C., but the pair did not comply, instead leading police on a 10-mile high-speed chase. Police eventually disabled the vehicle by flattening its tires with a stop stick. With the vehicle disabled, the driver of the truck fled on foot.
The driver eventually trespassed onto private property. The owner of the property, a National Rifle Association member and Right-to-Carry permit holder, spotted the driver, drew a firearm and ordered the trespasser to get on the ground. The driver complied and the property owner held him at gunpoint until police could arrive. Following the incident, Lexington County Sherriff’s Deputies told a local media outlet that the armed citizen helped them make the arrest.
The property owner added, “I just knew I wanted to get him in a place that he couldn’t run and he couldn’t come at me or my wife.”
