As reported, a husband and wife, who each have a concealed carry permit, used their self defense guns to save a woman from a domestic violence attack.
Police say that a husband and wife pulled into a Wadsworth, Ohio McDonald’s, located on High Street, and noticed a man beating a woman in another vehicle. Fearing for that woman’s safety, the couple reportedly drew their guns and ordered the man to stop his attack, at which point he fled on foot. A third bystander is said to have followed the man and called police, who soon arrived on the scene and used a Taser to subdue to the man. A suspect, reportedly identified as Anthony Konopinski, was arrested and now faces domestic violence, child endangerment, resisting arrest, and drug paraphernalia charges, according to police.
This self defense gun use, like the majority of self defense gun uses, did not result in anyone dying or even a shot being fired. The flawed but still routinely quoted anti gun rights “study” which found gun owners were 43 times more likely to be killed with their own gun that to use it in self defense didn’t count this type of situation at all, leading to its long since discredited finding. The fact is that gun ownership saves 65 lives for every 2 lives lost, and the majority of lives lost are due to the intentional actions of criminals, who wouldn’t obey a gun control law anyway.
