In this latest installment of “Good Guy with a gun,” or as is happening more often, “Good Gal with a gun,” a woman defended her life, against an assailant robbing her place of work.
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez told reporters during a news conference that two female managers at the Showboat Drive-in theater in Hockley, TX were wrapping up their evening after a double-feature when they heard a noise downstairs.
“The women went downstairs, and immediately discovered a man in a closet, potentially a utility closet and they ordered the male suspect to come out,” Sheriff Gonzalez said. “The male did comply, it appeared he was possibly armed with a knife, the managers issued more verbal commands, and the male exited the location and took off, without incident at that point”
Gonzales continued,”A second male also appeared, they believe he may have been in the closet or back bathroom. He came out, he was partially masked, concealing his identity, he had gloves on, and he was possibly armed with a bat”
“There may have been some type of physical altercation where he actually struck her, possibly with the bat or with his fist,” Gonzales said, “At this point she discharges her weapon, she did retrieve a weapon that she had on her person and fired, and striking the male, and the male has been confirmed deceased here at the scene.”
“He again appears to be partially concealed, he appears to be a younger adult male, just guessing possibly early 20’s,” Gonzales added.
Sorry. No data so far.
“They’re just trying to run a business out here,” Gonzalez told the group of media. “These two male are going to try to come and try to rob the location. It’s pretty isolated out here, so they did what they needed to do to protect themselves.”
The sheriff acknowledged that it is possible that there was a car waiting outside the theater that picked up the first suspect after he fled.
Deputies tried tracking down the second person that ran away, but so far have been unable to find him. His accomplice had no comment to his whereabouts.
I am sure my readers are probably more shocked there are still Drive-In Theaters in operation, than about someone protecting himself or herself.
But for the life of me, I am not sure what Democrats think when they hear these stories.
Actually, lefties probably do not hear these stories, since this type of news, goes against the agenda that Lamestream Media tries to push.
For those viewers of the local news, it is not going to be a surprise to them, because “success stories” such as these only occur in conservative locations, and not in gun-free-zones.
These stories only remain on the local news, and do not hit the national news, because it would show that guns are used for good, at a rate of possibly up to 1000 to 1. Since roughly 3,000,000 plus cases of gun use for protection of life and property occur per year, compared to a questionable 3,000 deaths associated with guns.
Obviously Democrats and their idiotic gun control measures, would have preferred these women to be hospitalized, and the theater owner robbed.
As Dan at TheTruthAboutGuns.com points out, “Once again, this is why millions of Americans choose to carry a firearm. It’s because they’re scared, not because they’re “gun nuts,” not because they’re “ammosexuals” and not because of a deficiency in genital size. I doubt the female theater manager — someone who apparently works late hours around a fair amount of cash — was trying to compensate for a small penis.”
If she bought the gun for herself. Good job! And if it was purchased for her, that person deserves a big thanks for a thoughtful and useful gift.
I personally find it fascinating that people will still commit crimes in gun-friendly states such as Texas.
I try to not make light of a defensive shooting like some commenters’ say, “good riddance” etc. [BTW, I don’t care if you say this at all, I don’t judge free speech, I also don’t claim to have NEVER said those words, since it is a sentiment that is easy to relate to]
I typically try to take a bit more pragmatic, pitying position. Having studied psychology as long as I have, I am of the strong belief, those that commit crime such as this are mentally ill. It is odd that many people in my industry do not agree with me, but I am sure that is because of a financially based, self-interest of some sort.
I am not necessarily referring to a DSM-IV mental issue. The mental illness can be as simple as a temporary situation, that potentially leaves a person feeling vulnerable and not knowing what to do, and they decide to rob someone to get money they do not have. An unexpected important bill like rent or medical care can leave those without great mental depth, with little recourse beyond crime. Or an addiction can drive someone to take money from honest, hard-working people when they have blown through the money they had.
I am not pointing this out, in the vein of, you should feel sorry for the deceased in this case, and others such as this. However, I say this, because they had a family, potentially friends, and now they are gone, and because of rampant, unchecked, mental illness.
The basis for almost everything negative we see in the news… Crime, Suicide, Democratic and Leftist Thinking, is mental illness. We need to devote more resources, human and financial to helping those that are unable to help themselves.
Until we do, nothing will change.
