The Crime Prevention Research Center reported on a case where an armed citizen and a group of colleagues came to help a wounded female police officer in Missouri.
The police officer was shot with her own gun as she was escorting an inmate to a mental health evaluation. This was the result of an ensuing struggle for the firearm.
The Missouri Highway Patrol reported that Jasmine Diab, a police officer out of Trenton, Missouri, was shot in her abdomen just after 3 p.m. on Friday, June 14, 2019. The assailant, Jamey Aaron Griffin, was charged with first-degree degree assault, armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon.
Police Sergeant Jake Angle stated that Griffin was restrained but was still able to overpower the female police officer and get ahold of her gun while inside the vehicle. The assailant was able to shoot the officer in the abdomen.
However, a witness claims that a group of good Samaritans were able to intervene in the situation and save Diab’s life. One of them was armed and subdued the inmate by pointing a gun to his head.
Police conceded that the armed citizen may have saved the female police officer’s life. Diab was in critical condition the day after being shot in the abdomen.
This story did not receive much media coverage but that is to be expected from the mainstream media, which generally glosses over cases of defensive gun use and other situations where private citizens use firearms to defuse tension in a peaceful manner.
The CPRC has specialized in bringing these low coverage stories of firearms being used in self-defense.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
