Monroe, Washington is a small community of 17,000 residents located about 30 miles northeast of Seattle. Around 8pm one evening last week, 80-year-old Barbara Moles found her husband lying on the floor and bleeding from a stab wound. He managed to tell his wife that he had been stabbed.
Barbara realized that there was an intruder in the house. Her instincts kicked in and she hurried to her bedroom to retrieve her gun and then went searching for the intruder. When she confronted him, he had her vitamins in one hand and a knife in the other. Barbara said that the intruder, later identified as Steven Sheppard, said ‘gun’ and she shot him. Sheppard was hit but not serious enough to prevent him from trying to escape through the front door. Barbara fired three more times, hitting Sheppard twice more, dropping him in his tracks.
What would have happened if this took place in some of the east coast states with strict gun control laws? Some of them require a homeowner to keep guns unloaded and in a locked gun safe or cabinet. Others require trigger locks on the unloaded guns. These gun laws are stupid and serve only leave the homeowner unprotected from intruders like Steven Sheppard.
Realize that Hillary Clinton supports many of these dangerous extreme gun control laws that would make it impossible for homeowners to defend themselves. If it was up to Clinton, Barbara Moles and her husband would have been left to the mercy of the knife wielding intruder, possibly resulting in both of their deaths. Does Hillary really want to leave 80-year-old women defenseless?

In June 2010, a 15-year-old boy and his 13-year-old sister were home alone in their Houston home. Suddenly a pair of strangers tried to gain entrance to the house through the front door, but found it locked. Next the strangers tried the back door and again found it locked. Then they broke in through a back window only to be greeted by the 15-year-old boy holding his father’s AR-15 assault-style rifle. Fearing for the safety of his sister and himself, the teenager opened fire on the two suspects, who fled the house as quickly as they could. The boy immediately called his father who was a deputy constable in Harris County Precinct 1. A short time later an adult male and a juvenile showed up at Tomball hospital. The adult male was reported to have had at least three bullet wounds that were serious enough to warrant him being transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital. The juvenile was taken back to the crime scene to be identified and arrested. Does Hillary really want to leave these teenagers defenseless?

Before the November election, I would love to see all of these victims gather together and face Hillary Clinton and ask her to defend her strict anti-Second Amendment gun control laws. Could she sit there and tell these men, women, children, mothers, wives, husbands, dads, grandparents, elderly and handicapped Americans that they should not be allowed to keep loaded guns easily accessible in their own homes? Or would she lie to them like she did to the parents of the four Americans killed at the US Embassy Compound in Benghazi? If only an event like this would happen and be televised nationally, I’m sure it would destroy Hillary’s campaign.
