In the midst of all the anti-gun hysteria following the senseless
murder of 26 people – 20 of them first graders – at Sandy Hook
Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., one story that is repeatedly
overlooked is how often a firearm has been used to save lives and stop
We here at Natural News believe the mainstream media, which
so often overlooks these kinds of stories because they don’t fit into
the statist government worldview held by the majority of news editors,
has done a disservice to the public by ignoring these acts of
selflessness and heroism.
With that in mind, we bring just some of the most recent high-profile
incidents – including what could have been additional school massacres –
that were stopped by law-abiding citizens using their
Second Amendment rights to protect themselves and others. Scores of
individual uses that never get reported are not included here:
Pearl High School, Mississippi: This incident began
the morning of Oct. 1, 1997, when 16-year-old student Luke Windham
entered the school with a rifle. Wearing only an orange jumpsuit and a
trench coat and making no effort to hide his weapon, he initially
entered the school and shot and killed two students, injuring seven
others. He was stopped by assistant principal Joel Myrick, who retrieved
a .45 cal. handgun from the glove box of his truck.
“I’ve always kept a gun in the truck just in case something like this
ever happened,” said Myrick at the time, who went on to become
principal of Corinth High School, Corinth, Miss.
Appalachia Law School, Virginia: On Jan. 16, 2002, Peter Odighizuwa, 43, a former student from Nigeria, arrived on the campus of the school
with a handgun around 1:00 p.m. and immediately killed three people, at
least two of them at point-blank range. Two students – Mikael Gross and
Tracy Bridges – both retrieved handguns from their vehicles and
confronted Odighizuwa. As former police officers, both men were trained
to subdue suspects but the fact is they were on the scene and armed, and
helped prevent more killings.
Muskegon, Michigan: From the Aug. 23, 1995, issue of the Muskegon Chronicle:
“Plans to slay everyone in the Muskegon, Michigan, store and steal
enough cash and jewelry to feed their ‘gnawing hunger for crack cocaine’
fell apart for a band of would-be killers after one of their victims
fought back. Store owner Clare Cooper was returning behind the counter
after showing three of the four conspirators some jewelry, when one of
the group pulled out a gun
and shot him four times in the back. Stumbling for the safety of his
bullet-proof glass-encased counter, Cooper managed to grab his shotgun
and fire as the suspects fled.“
Colorado Springs, Colo.: On Dec. 9, 2007, gunman Mathew
Murray, 24, launched an armed attack against the parishioners of the
New Life Church that ultimately left two innocent victims dead. But the
toll could have been much higher, were it not for the heroic actions of
former police officer Jeanne Assam from Minnesota. In an interview she
said she very nearly decided not to go to church that morning but
because she saw a headline on her computer indicating that two young
people were murdered and a training center for Christian missionaries
about 70 miles away in the Denver suburb of Arvada, she changed her
mind. Murray shot a total of five people before an armed Assam shot and
killed him. There were about 7,000 people at the church at the time of
