Florida Man Proves Guns Save Lives in Multiple Stabbing

by Mark Angelides

The argument made by anti-Second Amendment groups that more legally carried guns on the streets will lead to a less safe environment took a hit on Monday when a responsible citizen stepped into a mass stabbing incident.  After three people were stabbed by an assailant, the situation was ended when a man with a gun appeared.
49-year-old Bobby Martin Watson began his crime spree by opening the door of Rosanna Lynn’s car at a Publix parking lot near the Seminole City Shopping Center in Florida. He grabbed at her bag and stabbed her in the abdomen and thigh. A witness to the crime, Christopher McMann, tried to help Lynn and was stabbed in the back. McMann began to give chase and was joined by local man Travis Jones who attempted to tackle Watson. Jones was stabbed in the abdomen during the struggle.
At this point, Donald Rush (40) stepped in and drew his weapon. He made Watson stand down and hand over his knife; then held him under pointed gun until the police arrived to make the arrest. Watson has since been charged with armed robbery and three counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Many on Social Media have pointed out that under Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law, Rush would have been within his rights to open fire, but as an argument for Second Amendment Rights, it seems better that he didn’t.
Rush controlled the situation and prevented any further danger by being a responsible gun owner. He has proven that legal guns in the hands of responsible citizens make EVERYONE safer. Three people were stabbed (fortunately, the injuries did not result in death), and potentially it could have gotten even worse if Rush had not been armed.
There will be those that argue if we have more guns out there that perhaps Watson could have shot three people instead of stabbing them, but reports from Florida sources say that he was a convicted felon, and would therefore not be allowed to own a gun until his “civil rights have been fully restored” (all convictions spent and restitutions paid).
When responsible citizens have legally owned guns, the facts suggest that gun crime actually falls. Forbes makes the point that as gun sales have risen, the actual amount of gun crime has been falling (except a brief spike in 2006).
The simple fact is this: Owning a gun does not make you more likely to commit a criminal act; if someone wants to commit a crime, they will do so. But if you do have a gun, and you witness a crime in progress, you are in a safer position to defend those around you. IN this sad incident, two witnesses to the initial stabbing tried to intervene and were both stabbed for their trouble…The guy with the gun was not.

    • What I have noticed about crazy libtards when it comes to guns, is the use “Psychological projection” and talk about shit that is what they want to do, or would do if they had guns, and superimpose that vision onto everyone else, then try make it stick. Their logic of if everyone had guns it would be a crazy shootout every minute all over town is as stupid as saying people with cars would run up on the kerb and kill people all day long…..because cars are just as effective at killing people as guns are. Yet they never mention cars, and are not afraid of cars. Gun control is about CONTROL, because these crazy psychopaths who “hate guns” will USE GUNS (police, military, private contractors) to take away good peoples guns.

      • More interesting is the fact that once Hillary lost, ‘the peace party’ went bonkers and started to gun up and go into full training.
        Oddly ironic, no?

        • By their actions we can see they are hypocrites and liars. There are some good people in the Bernie camp who can see the current system is screwed up, but they are falling for the trap of communism lite ™ and herded into the opposing camp, completely oblivious, and chanting and raving like lunatics thinking they have figured out the answer. They scream to get rid of the 1%’rs while their leader is one….you can’t get more stupid surely? The Trump supporters are struggling with the fact Trump is all for Jews, and hoping he is playing a chess game with them. Ridiculous. He is the swamp along with his Kosher buddies…..meanwhile the JWO plans march on as Trump fights the “deep state”, which is the “Jew state” that the majority of people have yet to figure out. It would be nice if there was a mass awakening like in Germany, because I have better things to do than deal with this shit. People should stop following and voting for these rich assholes, no matter what camp they belong to.

    • Im my humble opinion, open carry just creates problems simply because strangers around you have no idea if you are a good guy or bad guy, and it makes old ladies feel uncomfortable. I have seen in in action when 5 people wearing guns entered a local bakery here in plain clothes and people shit their pants. They were cops, but the average person didn’t know that and people started exiting the building and people were worried. It also creates opportunities for criminals to target you to get your gun. When sitting in a diner or standing around you don’t have eyes in the back of your head. Crims are getting smarter, and often work in numbers now and can distract you, then come up from behind. They also know who will be their biggest threat when entering a room, which also paints a target on you, and if they have the numbers, you will be the first one targeted. I am however a massive fan of conceal carry for all good people that want it, as long as they get some training (like driving a car) . I don’t believe in registration or licensing, as it’s none of the governments damn business. Criminals get guns regardless of what laws a government put in place. Those laws ONLY affect law abiding people, so it’s proven to be a waste of time and money.

      • Any criminal who discharges a weapon in the commission of a felony would become an organ donor if I had my way.

        • You can see in the western world they are laying the groundwork to be kings forever, with their own private army being paid for by taxpayers. Venezuela is the kind of model they are after. One where people are totally dependent on the government to live. The government there funds the police, military and collectivos (private proxy army who do the behind the scenes dirty work, eliminating opposition) while pretending to fight them. We see this model being used in Syria at the moment, with ISIS and the many free syria groups being used as a proxy army to try gain control. They imported millions of muslims into the western world for a reason. That reason is to eventually arm them and let them run wild, then clamp down on EVERYONE as an excuse to go after guns. I’m with you, anyone using a gun to break the common law should be delt with with extreme prejudice by good law abiding people. This is the mentality that needs to really be ingrained into the population, otherwise everyone will just end up as serfs under a corporate commie/capitalist/fascist jackboot.

      • The gun death rate was lower in “The Wild West” where everyone carried openly than in any gun controlled city today.
        Everyone also knew that if you started shooting, you would be stopped, permanently.
