McDonald’s Robbery Gets McNipped in The Bud by Armed Bystander

There seems to be only one solution for the issue of bad guys with guns, and a father in Alabama proved it again this week.

Second Amendment

Yet again, in the midst of a turbulent year for violence in America, we are being forced to endure another debate on the Second Amendment.

And while I would be the first in line to argue that we certainly need to have a conversation about the safety of our nation, there is simply no realistic situation in which our country becomes safer with an adjustment to the Second Amendment.  We must remember that infringement alone is unconstitutional and therefore disallowed, but actions going above and beyond that simple threshold are wholly inexcusable.

Plus, and let’s be honest here, who do we as a nation pay enough to walk into a home of an avid gun owner and physically confiscate their firearms?  Do the democrats believe that they’ll convince the military or police to do this?  That’s absurd on its face.

So this leads us to what can prevent such tragedy.  In America, the only known solution is a good guy with a gun…and that’s exactly why a McDonald’s in Alabama today remains open and operating.

An armed intruder allegedly barged into a Birmingham, Alabama, McDonald’s on Saturday night, but an armed father was there to take care of business.

The incident unfolded around 10:45 p.m. when the store was closing, according to AL.com.

A store manager was unlocking the front door to let a father and his two teenage sons out of the building when an armed, masked intruder reportedly forced his way in and opened fire.

What happened next?

The father, who remains unidentified at the time of this writing, was able to return fire on the suspect, fatally shooting him.

Birmingham police spokesperson Sgt. Bryan Shelton said that one juvenile and two adults were injured during the shooting, which is suspected to be a burglary attempt. The unnamed father and one of his sons were injured but are expected to recover.

“Right now it appears the [suspect] made a decision that cost his life and the father made a decision that preserved his and children’s’ life,” Shelton said.

There appears to be no plan to charge the good samaritan for his act of bravery that undoubtedly saved lives.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
