Left-wing Democrats love to claim that the concept of a “good guy with a gun” stopping mass murders is a myth that does not pan out in real life, but of course, like everything else they say on the topic of firearms, that is completely false.
And in fact, they have been proven wrong again in recent days thanks to a “good woman with a gun.”
According to a report, a West Virginia woman with a concealed carry license did not wait for police to arrive and instead engaged a crazed man armed with an AR-15-rifle who was poised to kill dozens of people attending a graduation party.
“Instead of running from the threat, she engaged with the threat and saved several lives last night,” Charleston Police Department Chief of Detectives Tony Hazelett told local news WCHS-TV.
The incident took place earlier this week when Dennis Butler, 37, upset by a group of people who were hosting a graduation party, instructed him to slow down as he drove through an apartment complex in the city.
Thirty minutes later he returned, parked his vehicle, jumped in the backseat, and began firing toward a group of about 30-40 people.
But unbeknownst to this lunatic, a law-abiding woman who had a concealed carry weapon permit in the group drew her handgun quickly and engaged Butler with direct fire, killing him.
“There was a graduation party, a party with kids,” Hazelett told reporters at a press conference. “So obviously somebody just graduated high school and another birthday party. We could have had a casualty shooting there.”
The chief went on to estimate that between 30 and 40 people were at the parties.

As of this writing, police have not released the name of the woman who killed Butler. No one else was injured in the incident, however.
Police did say, however, that the woman is not part of any law enforcement agency and is just an average law-abiding citizen who became the latest American to put the lie to the left’s claims that ‘good people with guns can’t stop bad people from doing bad things.’
But that hasn’t stopped the anti-gun left from preaching that lie.
On Sunday, “Meet The Press” host Chuck Todd lamented the horrific shooting in Uvalde, Texas, in which an 18-year-old gunman entered the Robb Elementary School killing 19 children and two adults — without being engaged by any law enforcement, though there were police on the scene.
Todd, who like other left-wing ‘media’ types is hyper-focused on guns following a pair of recent mass shooting tragedies rather than what could motivate two young men to commit such terrible murders in the first place, insists that “thoughts and prayers” for victims is nothing and that the Second Amendment is a myth.
“It’s become our uniquely American ritual of words after each episode of this uniquely American serial tragedy. Thought and prayers, nothing we can do,” the “Meet the Press” host said earlier this week. “No law would have stopped this. The real problem is mental illness. If only the victims had been armed. More thoughts and prayers.”
As he furthered his argument, Todd claimed: “This current version of the Republican Party is being held hostage by a vocal minority obsessed with an absolute right that does not exist.”
First of all, the Second Amendment is an ‘absolute right’ — as absolute as the First Amendment’s speech protections this clown uses to make a very good living.
But the real ‘big lie’ is that armed law-abiding citizens do nothing to stop any criminal activity that is pervasive on the Democrat left, in spite of the numerous examples proving otherwise.
