Hey, “Moms Demand Action”.. Law Abiding Gun Owner Saves Daughter’s Life with a GUN

Screen shot 2014-01-09 at 3.48.17 PM

Moms Demand Action wants to restrict the gun rights of law abiding citizens. They blame guns for gun related deaths of innocent people rather than the criminal who was in control of the gun.
You will never see or hear Moms Demand Action state the real facts about guns… like last year 2.5 million times, law abiding citizens pulled a gun in self defense and saved lives.
They also will not tell you stories like this one that just happened on Monday: A father saved his daughter’s life with a gun when gun carrying thugs held her hostage in her own home.

It was about 11pm Monday when a 17 year old girl who lives in the home was getting something from her car. Two men, both with guns, grabbed her.
They began to push her back into the home with a gun to her head. Her father, who says he was visiting the girl and her mother, saw the gunmen and pulled his own weapon. He says he had no choice but to fire.

“He was holding her hostage. She was a human shield. So I did what I had to do.”

Asked how he had the confidence to pull the trigger when the man was holding his daughter that way, he said, “It wasn’t like that. It just happened. I didn’t have a choice. He had my daughter so I did what I had to do.”

The man he shot and killed was Terrell Johnson, 31, of St. Louis. The second suspect, who the father says was wearing a mask, is Cortez McClinton, 33, also of St. Louis.

Not only did the girl’s father, a law abiding gun owner, take out a convicted armed robber (Johnson) and a suspected murderer (McClinton), he managed to kill one of them outright and put multiple shots into the other while they were holding his daughter hostage as a shield.
Imagine the pressure of shooting He somehow safely shot around his daughter and never touched her, and only missed connecting with one shot.

Despite the position that these men put his family in, the father displayed incredible compassion for the families of the criminals.

He also said he was sorry for what the families of the two suspects are going through, but he says he had no choice.

“My condolences goes out to all the families involved. I don’t know him. I wish it hadn’t happened. So like I said, to the moms, fathers, all the other people involved, I apologize,” he said.

The surviving suspect, McClinton, will likely face murder chargers in his partner’s death (thanks to the felony murder rule), and witnesses have been asked to come forward again for the previous murder in which he was a suspect.

The father will not be charged as the shooting was clearly self-defense.

    Exactly the way it is supposed to be. I’m willing to bet this man never posted stupid bravado comments on web sites as is so common. A true hero.

    We face many problems today, both here and abroad. My feeling is that a strong, truthful media, whether it is television or print or radio, would have made the difference in what we are dealing with today….why do I say that? We have been hoodwinked since the late 1960s by a media shaped by the personal opinions of the owners and their political friends….case in point: the supposed journalist Walter Cronkite. His despicable misnamed reporting about what was going on in Vietnam is a prime example of personal opinion disguised as the truth. Other “news” organizations hype the outrageous and call it reporting. Today we turn on what is supposed to be an expanded version of the news, a more in depth look at issues and we see clowns such as chrissy matthewinsky slamming conservatives, the GOP, and GWB as though the only truth, the only sanity is a democrat property….no Real Americans need bother thinking….the slanderous, outright lies by the likes of old “concrete” and his version of “Tet” caused the support of the war to go away. The same with not reporting what the clowns in the democrat party did with the CRA in 1977…a direct cause, linked with TARP I and II, of the problems after 2000 with the housing market and the meltdown of financial institutions….Now we have a golfer that was very busy considering the options that would stop the rag head incursion of Iraq by al queerda with a simple order, the USAF will immediately provide air support for the Iraqis and had that been done in the second week in June the party would be over now….
