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;
Even after being shot in the leg during Thursday’s robbery attempt at Medicap Pharmacy, Jackson Quick stood his ground, not knowing whether he would live or die.
He put pressure on his wounded right leg with his left hand while holding onto the store’s gun with his right, occasionally firing back at the men who barged in shooting.
“Since they came in shooting, I thought, ‘Yeah, they mean business; they mean to kill all of us,’” he said.
Quick refused let go of his gun when ordered to.
He said he couldn’t – one of the shooters had yelled that he was holding an employee hostage.
“I thought about that, and I thought that if I threw out my gun, nobody had a chance, he would just shoot everybody,” he said.
Quick recalled on Friday that the two shooters briefly took two different pharmacy technicians hostage during the attempted robbery.
Unbeknownst to Quick, it wasn’t the first time that day those men had taken someone hostage.
