The anti-Second Amendment crowd likes to mock those of us who understand the realities of the world. In their view, those who carry firearms are paranoid at best and delusional at worst.
Then again, the same leftists who assert as such are part of the same crowd that believes a man in a dress is a woman, so take their assessment of our reality for what it’s worth…
The world is a dangerous place and while few welcome trouble, the reasonable people prepare for the possibility of danger. That’s why ensuring easy access to concealed carry permits is of vital importance.
After a gas station owner was robbed twice, he realized that the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
But how does one increase the likelihood that a “good guy with a gun” will be around when needed?
For Shell station owner Frank Schwagel in Minnesota, the answer was simple: offer a discount for the armed citizenry.
Schwagel placed a sign at his establishment that is sure to cause liberal consternation. The sign reads: “Gas discount for ‘law enforcement’ or people with proof of ‘permit to carry’ 10 cents per gallon after 7:00PM daily”
10 cents a gallon is enough to get me to the pump- not to mention that this kind of ingenious thinking is worthy of reward and patriots likely feel compelled to offer their business to this man who is showing his support for the Second Amendment and law enforcement.
Schwagel says that he’s “trying to bring it to people’s attention that there’s been some robberies going on around town. And these guys are coming in with guns and knives and threatening our employees. It’s pretty disconcerting. I just figured anything I can do to draw attention to the problem.”
To support our basic civil liberties and commonsense approaches to crime, one need not be a huge donor to the NRA or a legislator on the Hill.
We can all make a difference by standing solidly in our resolve to exercise our rights without apology and to support those who do similarly.
As for any liberals who are appalled by this stance, they should feel free to fill-up their Priuses at the local biofuel station.
