You’ll Smile When You Find Out How a Grandfather Stopped a Madman
One of the redeeming parts of reporting on the appropriate use of guns is every now and then you come across a gem of a story like this one.
In rural Portland, Tennessee a 52-year-old grandfather who did not want to be named, exercised his second amendment right in such a way that not even the most vicious of anti-gun advocates could come up with a means to vilify this good American.
The man, who works as a commercial truck driver, decided to use some of his much deserved vacation time sitting back and relaxing at his property out in the country.
As he kicked back and enjoyed himself, it wasn’t long before the man began to suspect something fishy might be going on. Doing a once over through his house he noticed that items in his home seemed suspiciously out of place, a tell-tale sign someone had been scoping out his home and possibly conducting illegal activities at his homestead.
That’s when he did the sensible thing any gun owner would do and he grabbed his pistol and kept it on himself for the remainder of his vacation.
It wasn’t long after he decided to carry around some extra protection that the man saw something he’ll never forget… a crazed man stumbled out of the weeds on his property and rapidly advanced towards him. His name? 27-year-old Richard Watkins.
In the anonymous man’s own words, “Some wild man comes out of the weeds towards me at the house. He comes walking over toward me I could tell he was messed up,”
One thing most gun owners know is that when approached by someone who appears to be under the influence of drugs it’s best to act in the defensive.
As the surprised trucker reacted to the situation, he had but one choice, prepare to defend himself or be attacked and possibly killed.
As he relayed to the local news station, “I don’t know really what to think and I don’t know really why he thought he had to talk to me but he had a pair of gloves of mine on. [So] I pulled my gun out and put it to his forehead and told him to sit down and called 911 and I’m thinking I don’t want to shoot this guy.”
Would you look at that, he didn’t want to shoot the guy.
How incredibly reasonable, and so incredibly hard to believe for our liberal friends who think every gun owner is a rabid trigger puller.
The man held Watkins at gunpoint until the authorities arrived. The police ended up finding a realistic looking pellet gun with a silencer in a pile of weeds nearby.
One thing you are probably concerned about (and rightfully so) is the amount of ammunition you have access to at any given time.
