A citizen carrying a firearm thwarted an attempted kidnapping, according to police.
“According to Sgt. Tommy Thompson with Phoenix police, the suspect approached the girl from behind, grabbed her arm and pulled it behind her back and put his arm over her face while she was walking to school near 19th Avenue and Bell Road on April 3,” said a FOX10 report.
That’s when the good samaritan intervened.
“When the suspect started talking to the girl, a witness knocked him down and told him to leave the girl alone,” the report said. “The witness then pointed a handgun at the suspect and told him to leave.”
The police are still searching for the suspect, who ran away when the witness pulled the firearm.
“Good guy with a gun” stories rarely appear in the mainstream press, the public relations arm of the Democratic Party. Meanwhile, the political left continues to infringe upon Americans’ Second Amendment rights. It will not doubt be a motif of the 2020 Democratic Party primary.
Big League Politics reported:
Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke wants to ban AR-15 sales in America.
Continuing his anti-gun rhetoric from his failed 2018 Senate campaign, O’Rourke recently said in an interview published by the Hill, “If you own an AR-15, keep it. Continue to use it responsibly and safely. I just don’t think that we need to sell anymore weapons of war into this public.” O’Rourke asserted that the AR-15 is built “for the express purpose of killing people as effectively as possible, in as great a number as possible.”
O’Rourke is one of many Democratic elected officials who have been infected by the anti-gun mind virus sweeping the nation since the 2018 Parkland massacre. In February 2018, during an interview with CBS News, O’Rourke, “I think banning bump stocks makes a lot of sense. … I don’t know that we should raise the age for buying an AR-15 I just don’t think we should be selling AR-15s in this country.”
On October 2018, O’Rourke called for Texas to lead the way in enacting gun control. O’Rourke has not relented in 2019. He is now making gun control a pillar of his 2020 presidential campaign.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
