The Second Amendment ensures American citizens have the right to use firearms to protect themselves and their family, and it is heartwarming to see this right being put to good use. Take the example of a grandmother in Tennessee:
Nellums, initially identified by police as the boy’s mother, carried her grandson outside and told officers that his 3-year-old brother was playing with a gun when he dropped it and it discharged. The victim was taken to LeBonheur Children’s Hospital where he was in non-critical condition for a gunshot wound to the arm.
Nellums told police that when shots were fired at her home, she grabbed her gun from her lock box and went outside. She fired shots into the ground to scare off suspects. She then put the gun back in the lock box, but forgot to lock it. Police recovered the gun and Nellums was arrested. She will be in court Tuesday on the charge.
Americans are cautioned to be on alert in these trouble times and to keep their powder dry.
