A brazen gunman left his car idling 50 yds. from the Sulphur
Springs, Texas, police station one morning, walked into The Pawn
Shop nearby and opened fire with a small-caliber handgun, striking
two workers and a customer with as many as nine shots. What the man
didn't know was that the store's co-owner, Jay Price, was in the
back and had heard the entire barrage. After arming himself with a
12-ga. shotgun, the storekeeper emerged to fire one deafening blast
from the smoothbore, dropping the assailant with serious wounds and
ending the assault. "We believe that if Jay Price had not acted the
way he did that there would have been some fatalities," said Sulphur
Springs Police Chief Donnie Lewis. "The victims who had already been
shot were probably saved by Jay Price."

It’s important to celebrate that law-abiding Americans are now closer than they have been in nearly half a century to being able to exercise their firearms freedom in our nation’s capital. That is real progress.
