In reaction to the mass shooting in El Paso earlier this month in which Hispanics were specifically targeted, members of that community “crowded into a class over the weekend to become certified to carry a concealed gun in public in Texas,” according to Reuters. They have deprived the Left of its bully pulpit militating against gun ownership, and all it took was these people exercising their Second Amendment Rights under the U.S. Constitution!
The classes are just the tip of the iceberg:
Michael McIntyre, general manager of Gun Central, one of the largest gun shops in El Paso and the host of the class, on Friday said his store tallied double the usual number of sales in the week following the attack, something that did not happen after previous mass shootings in Texas.
Most of the sales were for handguns, which can be strapped to an ankle or shoulder under clothing.
“I have over 50 for this Saturday class and approximately the same amount for the Sunday class, and I normally have approximately seven,” McIntyre said.
“We actually had two people buy guns here who were actually in the Walmart on the day of the shooting. The other people are just saying, ‘Hey, you know I want to be able to protect myself in the event of something going on’,” he said.
It’s something the Left will never own up to but maybe — just maybe — more “good guys with guns” is just what the nation needs to curb its bad guys with guns problem.
