While I doubt many fathers would be unwilling to make this sacrifice, I can’t help but think that if this man would have had a gun and some training, he could have prevailed over the aggressors. It’s obvious that this Miami father had the courage, he fought with two armed assailants, but he didn’t have the tools.
The police spokeswoman used the correct terminology when she called the men that did this “beasts.” Unfortunately, they got away, but the father did save his little girl. Stories like this are why we purchase firearms and get training to use them.
Talk to your friends and family and explain to them that having a firearm, and knowing how to use it, provides an edge over the people who have no regard for law or humanity.
