One thing the liberal media never wants to mention is how police officers stop crimes: with guns.

And surprisingly there are numerous stories of off-duty police officers who manage to help stop or prevent crimes because they were carrying their guns.

Case in point: A Dallas police officer was in the news recently when he helped to stop a woman from being executed at a stop light.

The shooting occurred outside of Harry Stone Montessori school in Dallas and was not a “school shooting” despite how the media tried to spin things.

According to the WFAA ABC:

Dallas Police Deputy Chief Gil Garza said in a news conference the officer was out of uniform and headed to a family function when he saw an altercation.

A woman was stopped at an intersection when another car, driven by the suspect, pulled up alongside her. Words were exchanged between the two, then the suspect fired multiple shots into the victim’s vehicle.

The officer witnessed the shooting, got out of his vehicle, and intervened before he shot the suspect.

The suspect and victim in the shooting were both taken to local hospitals in critical condition, though their injuries are thought to be non-life-threatening.

In this case, the off-duty officer probably saved the victim’s life. And it’s no surprise. All you have to do is review the facts about guns — whether they are handled by off-duty officers or civilians.

According to “Guns are used as many as 2.5 million times a year in self defense. This breaks down to an estimated 6,850 times per day in which guns are used to prevent, or stop the commission of a crime. Nearly 80 times the amount they are used to take a life.”

These numbers are staggering.

It’s even been shown that simply having concealed carry laws are effective at reducing crime.

States which passed concealed carry laws reduced their murder rate by 8.5%, rapes by 5%, aggravated assaults by 7% and robbery by 3%; and * If those states not having concealed carry laws had adopted such laws in 1992, then approximately 1,570 murders, 4,177 rapes, 60,000 aggravated assaults and over 11,000 robberies would have been avoided yearly.

And yet liberals can’t wrap their heads around these proven facts.

One reason gun owners across the country are rejoicing is because there’s now a way to avoid the drastic ammo shortages that are predicted to come.
