NRA Good Guy With a Gun mantra debunked in Texas (sad story)

The “good guy with a gun” mantra is a popular one among conservatives who claim tragedies could be averted if only the victims or a concerned citizen had been packing. Again and again, these NRA and right-wing talking points are disproven, and yet another case, this time out of Texas, shows us why.

Two men in the Houston, Texas were in the process of stealing an unarmed man’s truck at a gas station when a would-be hero rushed in to save the day. He drew his weapon and began firing. However, he missed his mark. Instead of hitting the car jackers, the gunman hit the victim in the head.

Great "good guy's" story

5. Actually that posters links don't do what they say they do.

 

And also, they are trying to steer you away from this forum about this topic in a big hurry. Ask yourself why.

4. Your links don't back up your claim of debunking.

 

Why is that?

6. Same reason they keep posting

What can and can't be posted here. If poster had read further down he would have read this part
Open discussion of guns is permitted during very high-profile news events which are heavily covered across all newsmedia.

7. The gun owners have such fragile personalities. They have to be protected at all costs.

8. It's like protecting a ticking time bomb imo.

 

Hovering over it like a proud mother hen while everyone else screams and flees in terror. Sick sick sick imo.
