A point against Gun "Control"

An anecdotal point against gun control. In those situations where the police can help, it often takes valuable minutes for them to show up - minutes that people often do not have. This is why an armed society is often a more polite society. The woman in the excerpt below will agree (emphasis is mine):

As the attack continued, people were yelling at the man to stop and honking their horns, Stuckey said. She said she called 911.

"He was just standing over her hacking away," said Dolly Baker, who had just left the Save-A-Lot store next door when she saw the attack.

Baker said she watched the man pour gasoline on the victim then try to strike a match.

"He was literally trying to kill that lady in broad daylight," she said.

Baker said a passer-by stopped the attack.

"He told the man, 'Stop, or I'm going to shoot. And if you run, I'm going to kill you,' " Baker said.

The man held Watson at bay until police arrived at the scene.

"Right now, all we know is that (Watson) attacked his wife. For what reason, we don't know," Jackson Police Department Sgt. Eric Smith said.

Police said they are looking for the passer-by who stopped the attack and would like to talk to him but don't know who he is or where he went.

The incident occurred about 3:50 p.m.

Smith said he did not know exactly how many times Gracie Watson was stabbed but said it was more than 10 times.

Two things, I'm glad that man was around, but if I were him, I wouldn't talk to the police either. I'd hope that the attacker is prosecuted to the fullest.

I bet the cops would love to "Ask him Questions" or what not... Probably lock his ass up.

That's what I'm thinking too. He could be a perfectly good guy who doesn't believe in gun registration (like me - the 2nd Amendment is what it is and it says I can keep and bear arms; it doesn't say only after getting permission from the govt.).

If that were the case, he'd be in probably close to as much trouble as the guy who stabbed his wife.
