Further Proof of the Need to be Armed, Always

I am often asked by women why I think I need to carry a gun.
My answer is, why do YOU think you DON’T NEED TO CARRY A GUN?

Guns in the hands of law abiding citizens, SAVES LIVES.
This story is a perfect example of why good folks in this country should be armed at all times.

In this case, a 78 year old California man on his way to work at 4:30am (yes, he still works to provide for his family at 78!) when he was viciously attacked by two armed robbers.
According to KTLA TV:
John Faust had stopped at a San Bernardino gas station in the early morning hours of June 24 when he was suddenly approached by two male robbers armed with guns.
One of the robbers said, “Give me your wallet,” according to Faust, and then punched the 78-year-old great-grandfather in the face.

“The next thing I knew, I was lying on the ground,” Faust said.
I don’t have to tell those of you that work in the medical field that a blow like that to a person nearing 80 years old could have serious, and possibly even fatal, consequences.

If Mr. Faust had been more cognizant of his surroundings (situational awareness) and had a gun, even a pocket pistol, he might have prevented the situation altogether.
I open carry because most criminals who see an armed citizen, prefer UNARMED defenseless victims.

There is no safe place in America today. Walking around unarmed is playing Russian Roulette with your life. Sooner or later, according to the stats, your time will come…
The outcome will be dependent on your preparedness and determination to survive.

I hope Mr. Faust makes a swift and recovery and will decide from this point forward to be armed and prepared.

    He lives in Ca. where it is almost impossible to get a CCW.

    • Rattlerjake

      People need to stop being so oblivious to the surroundings. There would be NO way these two turds would have surprised me. And if they got within shooting distance and I saw their weapon, as obvious as it was, they would both be fertilizer. This does not happen to the well prepared very often, these ferals ALWAYS pick those people who look the most vulnerable.

      • Joegunz

        Only THING tho Rattlerjake is you obviously carry and you probably don’t live in Cali. What IF you didn’t have a gun? Do you think you would be able to fight 2 armed men?

        • Rattlerjake

          First of all, those who chose to live in liberal states that insist on violating your Constitutional rights with unconstitutional laws put themselves in harms way and deserve little sympathy when these incidents happen. Secondly, as a retired Special Ops guy it would be a cold day in hell before I would allow myself to be caught unaware by anyone, armed or unarmed. Third, my life means enough to me that I carry whether the law allows it or not – better to be judged by 12 than carried by six – an unconstitutional law will not stop me from exercising my right, make no mistake, I avoid unconstitutional states! If necessary there are numerous other weapons that are very effective against thugs, but an ounce of prevention it worth a pound of cure, ALWAYS be aware of your surroundings and DO NOT patronize or frequent places known for these acts!

          Remember that most of these thugs get their courage from two things, 1) they NEVER act alone, and 2) that gun or weapon makes them think they are invincible (most are pathetically untrained to even use that gun that they can’t react fast enough to a counter assault – happens all the time, just watch some of the videos of convenience store robberyies where the clerk immediately throws something at the perp or pulls his own gun and starts shooting). Quick action by the victim often will catch them off guard and their first reaction is to run! There is always a chance of fighting back not ending well, but I’d rather die fighting than willingly.

          • Phil McMorrow

            I hear what you are saying, but the implication that the victim was at fault here is a reach.

          • Rattlerjake

            The victim is at least 50% responsible in this case! Watch the video, he is impervious to what is going on around him. He’s not to blame for the crime, but his actions made the crime easy and inevitable. You will seldom hear of a crime happening to those who are prepared.

            These same people (victims) are the ones who fail to vote, vote for a demoturd, and/or fail to fight back when ‘government’ creates BS unconstitutional laws. They are directly and/or indirectly responsible for the crime in their cities and states, and eventually they are the statistic.

    • almost, but not impossible..
      which is why I would never live in California and if I did I would be rounding up citizens and educating voters to elect people to get this changed.

      • Lorraine Terpening

        Jan, no one is issued a concealed carry here in Ca. I hear celebrities have a hard time and might be issued one. Maybe.

        • EdwardL

          Actually Lorraine, that’s wrong. Since the 9th Circuit Court found it unconstitutional for citizens to give a reason to carry a gun other than self protection, the County of Orange is issuing CCW’s. I know, because I’m on the list.

          • Lorraine Terpening

            That is certainly great news! But how long have you been on the list?

          • Rattlerjake

            And why does the state require a CCW permit, which is an infringement of the right to carry? Any waiting period is an infringement, any permit requirement is an infringement, any fee is an infringement! Yet where is the fight to get rid of these BS requirements?

          • Rattlerjake

      This is exactly what Obama the homosexual muslim wants.

    • Lorraine Terpening

      Not almost, it is impossible. Nope not gonna happen.

  • Timothy Q Williams

    I can not express the way i truly feel about this, My prayers are with John and his recovery. May the fleas of a 1000 camels infest the 2 thugs that did this awful crime. I hope they meet big ol Tyron behind bars real soon, and even that is to good for them.

    • dalek1967

      And may their arms be to short to scratch.

  • Sherry Barnette McCartney

    They hide under their hoodies.

    • Sagebrush6

      Most criminals are CS cowards. They always hide behind something. Some – even thier momma’s behind.

  • foxxybey

    Criminals rule everywhere a person can’t carry a gun and that needs to stop, the libs are left wing nut jobs and never learned real history, Hitler disarmed everyone and became a dictator and it is happy here with the new Hitler illegal president in the White House. God Bless and Shalom, shoot first and ask questions later, rather be judged by 12 then carried by 6.

    • dmbunce

      I guess we are thinking along the same lines.

    • newhon63

      Well said. Hopefully anyone reading this will understand the meaning of what you said and let it sink in.

    • theoldman

      Not really BUT point well taken. Hitler disarmed the Jews. But again point well taken. We can not give the libturds ammo to point at and saying it’s miss info.

      • GQ4U

        Not true, Hitler confiscated guns and only allowed those who were “right thinkers” (his puppets) to keep their guns — it wasn’t just the Jews.

      • CHinOhio

        Even if it had been just the Jews – how’d THAT work out?

  • dmbunce

    Anytime you see a punk kid coming up to you at 4:30 in the morning wearing a black hoodie there is going to be trouble. Shoot first ask questions later.

    • GQ4U

      I don’t think he saw them until it was too late.

      • dmbunce

        That may be so. He should have been more aware and not just standing there with his back wide open to anyone or anything.

        • GQ4U

          Hind sight (no pun intended) is always 20-20. At 78 he’s likely slowed down a bit and the older generations a re more trusting because they grew up in a less violent time.

          • Sam Houston

            Hence why the little sissy girl punks targeted him.

          • GQ4U

            They always prey on the weak.

          • Grits.N.Jowls

            I saw a saying one time that went: I carry a gun because I’m too old to fight, too fat to run and too proud to take a public ass whoopin’!! Also my sentiments.

    • Sam Houston

      My neighborhood got hit again from two little worthless punks wearing hoodies breaking into cars early Saturday mornings here in Jefferson Parish (New Orleans). Looks like I will be doing covert OPS a few Saturdays a month from now on. I don’t have a gun but I do have a bow and arrow.

      • dmbunce

        Skewered! Sounds interesting.

  • curious

    Ban hoodies!

  • imaokie

    Just one more reason not to live where the stupid liberal government imposes gun restrictions on law abiding citizens. You can bet the two thugs didn’t legally own those pistols.

    Why I Carry a Gun!

    My old grandpa said to me ‘Son, there comes a time in every
    man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and
    usually it’s when he becomes too old to take an butt whoopin.’

    I don’t carry a gun to kill people.

    I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

    I don’t carry a gun to scare people.

    I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.

    I don’t carry a gun because I’m paranoid.

    I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.

    I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil.

    I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.

    I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government.

    I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

    I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry.

    I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

    I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone.

    I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

    I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man.

    I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

    I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate.

    I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

    I don’t carry a gun because I love it.

    I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

    Police protection is an oxymoron.

    Free citizens must protect themselves.

    Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after
    it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

    • Sam Houston

      I would love to see a Liberal’s slant to this well worded and to the point logic. Even Colbert or Stewart could not spin a comedic Liberal twinge to it without making themselves to look like utter fools.

  • joe

    hate crime

  • GQ4U

    I believe everyone should have the right to carry a gun but in this vidieo it looks like thes thugs had the guy surrounded with guns drawn so at that point if he had reached for his gun he would likely have been shot himself. I hope the cops find these punks and they resist resulting in them being shot to death.

    • Sam Houston

      Always have your head on a swivel. Be aware of your surroundings and no matter how impolite or uncomfortable that you may feel, make solid eye contact with each and everyone of you within throwing distance. Always expect a sucker punch as that is the coward gang banger’s calling card. Then whatever weapon that you have on hand can be utilized. With Obama and Holder importing these thugs wholesale from down South, expect for more and far worse to happen. There no longer is such a thing as a safe neighborhood in America. When local law enforcement and city councils act to block these individuals from gaining access to their communities, the DOJ comes down hard upon them, forcing them to acquiesce to the designs of the criminals.

  • quad

    i live down the street from there ami start fueling there around that time now with my gun ill see em in hell!

  • Joe Torres

    Those guys just need to be KILLED. Period.

  • Carl Mayo

    if eric holder had his way, john faust would be dead now.

  • Stevie10703

    Just wondering, where did those two get their guns? California has the strictest gun laws in the country, yet these two subhumans were armed. But, its the law abiding citizens that aren’t allowed to have guns because apparently, to the liberal mind, its the law abiding citizen that’s a threat not subhumans like these who the left would say are just earning a living.

  • Marlin208

    I never leave the house without a gun. And if my gun isn’t welcome then I do not spend any of my hard earned money in the place either.

  • Annie A Lien

    I just want to know the status of the thugs…. were they citizens or ILLEGALS. notice that wasn’t mentioned. just saying.

    • Sam Houston

      Southern California, most likely. They could be anchor babies as how do expect illegal parents to raise an American Citizen? You can’t. They have the same illegal attitudes as their parents.
