Thread: Have you thanked a gun owner lately?

  1. Have you thanked a gun owner lately?

    Three years ago my wife was assaulted by a man in a parking ramp here in downtown Grand Rapids Michigan. She was thrown to the ground by a stair way and her legs were forced open as this would be rapist attempted to penetrate her after ripping off her dress.

    The assailant, and my wife, were both stunned by the loud noise of a cocking gun nearby. The assailant, who was on top of my wife looked up to see a man no more than fifty feet away pointing a gun at him and telling him to not move. The assailant got up and ran of course, however, my wife wasn't violated either.

    My wife told me that the man who saved her life and chastity ran away just as fast as the assailant did in the other direction, most likely fearing some sort of prosecution or perhaps he wasn't licensed to carry/own a firearm. It remains a mystyery to us to this day.

    Anyways, thanks to him and thank you every gun owner who are society's little saviors in disguise. God Bless You.

    I am glad to here that there was someone there to help her. To bad the good guy did not shoot the punk though because he lived to attack someone else another day.

    Glad to hear that your wife made it out ok and thank God there was someone there willing to step up and help. Hopefully since then you both have been added to the CCW ranks. Who knows maybe one day you or your wife may save someone else from the same situation.

    I agree with KimberPB and I'm also very glad your wife is ok. Being a woman and disabled, I refuse to be a victim, so I have a CCP and carry. Depending on the situation, such as the one described, I would intervene and defend someone else.

    Since then my wife has gotten her CCW permit. I on the other hand am not allowed to possess or carry a firearm due to a felony when I was a teen.

    Check with your states attorney's general office to see if your gun rights can be restored.

    As the poster mentioned, I would definitely look into the possibility of having your gun right restored.
