Katie Claxton feared for her life when a man at a Springfield, Missouri gas station approached her car around 8 pm at a gas station last Sunday night.
Claxton’s husband pumped gas as she waited in their car with the couple’s four young kids when a stranger approached. In an attempt to lock the door, Claxton accidentally rolled the window down. The man then opened the door and brandished a long knife. Claxton yelled for her husband to grab his gun.
The man retreated at the mention of the weapon.
Via the Springfield News-Leader:
“He said ‘You’re lucky he has a gun,'” Claxton said. “And then he shut the door and started to back away.”
Claxton said her husband pointed his Beretta handgun at the man and called 911 as the man slowly walked away.
“Our Second Amendment right to carry is what saved our lives,” Claxton said. “If we didn’t have our right to carry, I feel like we wouldn’t be here today.”
After attempting to get into several people’s cars at a stoplight, the police arrived and the man was arrested shortly thereafter.
While the whole thing was over shortly, just imagine how your wife or girlfriend would react in this situation. While the Obama administration is busy chipping away at the Second Amendment in a bid to disarm everyone “for their safety,” these people would not have been more safe without their gun and if they waited for the police to protect them in a situation like this, they might be dead.
