Anti-gun politicians are quick to exploit mass shootings, especially when the details fit their preferred narratives. They immediately demand stricter gun control, which only benefits the gun-wielding baddies.
They also fail to point out the countless exploits and lives saved because law-abiding citizens owned and used firearms at the right time.
This increasingly common theme was recently proven once again at a gas station in Avondale, Arizona, where an employee who possessed a gun reportedly foiled a potentially fatal robbery attempt.
The frightening incident happened in the early hours of the morning.
The robbery acc KPNX TVhappened at a Chevron station in suburban Phoenix, took a nasty turn for the suspected robber, who immediately lost his leverage when he was distracted by another customer in the store.

The armed Chevron employee behind the counter didn’t hesitate to use this momentary distraction to get his hero to move, draw his legally owned firearm and shoot the suspect, according to the news report.
The attendant, a man identified only as Ryan, described how the situation unfolded.
“He pointed his gun at me, said it was a robbery, then he pointed his gun at the other customer I had in the store,” Ryan said. “I had the opportunity to draw my gun and shoot.”

Ryan added: “I’m not happy I had to shoot him but I’m not stressing about it. The moment he pointed the gun at me, he set the situation and I just followed. He made the situation what it was.”
And thank goodness Ryan made that move. Imagine what would have happened if Ryan hadn’t fought back that day. The armed suspect could have easily killed him and several gas station patrons had Ryan not acted quickly and boldly in the face of extreme danger.

The injured suspect was taken to hospital in critical condition, the news outlet reported. Nobody else was hurt.
Fortunately, the incident happened in Arizona, where gun laws favor law-abiding residents of the state. The state proceeds according to what is constitutionally appropriate Permitless Carry Lawwhich allows anyone in the state over the age of 21 to purchase and carry a concealed firearm.
In nearby liberal states like California, where owning a firearm — even in self-defense — is frowned upon by the elite, gas station attendants generally have no means of defending themselves or their customers.
If Democrats push for expanded and stricter gun control measures, people like the man who allegedly tried to rob the Avondale Chevron will still commit acts of violence, often with stolen or otherwise nefariously acquired firearms, regardless of background checks and other so-called weapons control laws.
Anti-gun politicians love to promote what they call “common sense,” gun control legislation that often amounts to nothing more than repealing our Second Amendment, allowing dangerous criminals to roam America’s criminal softness more freely than ever before can atmosphere.
Thank God there are people like this saleswoman who are willing to defend the lives of complete strangers as well as their own.
I can only pray that if I ever find myself and my family in danger in public and I can’t make a similar move, another Ryan like the one in Avondale will be there, ready to fight back.
