An apartment block in Arkansas soon descended into chaos after a lone gunman assassinated an 87-year-old woman he’d followed into her flat.
He then began a rampage, shooting into other residences.
Zachary Arnold, 26, began screaming at residents on an apartment complex in Fort Smith, demanding “You guys get out here, come out here, everyone get out of this building right now” according to witness. 87-year-old Lois Hicks and another woman exited their apartments, but retreated inside when they noticed Arnold was brandishing a semi-automatic rifle, according to police.
Arnold followed Hicks back inside according to eyewitness, taking advantage of the fact that she had left her door ajar, and shot her to death. The gunman then reportedly went back outside and began to shoot into individual residences, drawing the attention of an armed neighbor.National File
This alerted another one of the residents, who had a scoped hunting rifle.
He deployed it with precision and took Arnold out, saving countless numbers of his fellow neighbors from horrible deaths.
This was only possible because of two things.
An American with a gun, who knew how to use it and was willing to do so.
And the Stand Your Ground law in Arkansas, recently updated in a way that infuriated leftists.
Resident’s praised their neighbor’s quick thinking. “If he didn’t do that, who knows how much worse it could have gotten,” Amber Lane told local outlet 5News. The building’s property manager, Cherre Miller, reportedly said that tenants formed a committee following the incident and elected to honor the neighbor who used the hunting rifle with a commemorative plaque.
In March, Arkansas passed an update to the state’s Stand Your Ground law that removes the need for a “duty to retreat” when confronting a threat, in a move that drew outrage from local left-wing activists. Stand Your Ground and Castle Doctrine-style laws have long been in the crosshairs of liberal politicians, who often describe such statutes as “racist” without further explanation.National File
If Democrats got their way, this heroic act would be ruled out because it’s “racist”.
That’s utter nonsense.
And it goes to show how life-saving conservative policies can be, and why it’s important to unite against Democrats wherever you live – especially if that’s a swing state.
After all, your support of conservative policies like this could literally save your life!
