As America declines into the throes of socialism, also known as the platform of the Democratic Party, Americans are seeing more and more of their constitutional rights taken away. Among them is the right to bear arms and defend yourself.
A number of businesses are banning employees from bringing their legally permitted concealed carry weapons to work with them and more businesses are posting gun-free signs, failing to realize that they are nothing more than an invitation for the next would be whacko who wants their name famous for killing as many people as possible.
Thankfully, the owner of Schlenker Automotive in Rockledge, Florida, located along the Atlantic coast between Cape Canaveral and Palm Bay, does allow employees to carry their concealed weapons at work and it’s a good thing he does.
Friday afternoon, a gunman opened fire in the parking lot at the auto shop, killing one employee and paralyzing another. The manager and another employee were legally armed and returned fire, shooting the shooter twice and stopping what would have been another mass shooting.
(Florida Today) – ROCKLEDGE — A man armed with a .45-caliber handgun and a lot of ammunition wandered onto an auto repair shop property and began firing in the parking lot Friday afternoon, police said.
The gunman killed one employee and paralyzed a second. That’s when the employees at Schlenker Automotive fought back with equal force, Rockledge police chief Joseph La Sata said.
“The manager, who was a concealed weapons permit holder, came out and engaged in gunfire in the parking lot,” La Sata said. “The manager fled back inside the building, being chased by the gunman. Another Schlenker employee, who also had concealed weapons permit, engaged in gunfire with the suspect.” …
Democrats will pull at their hair and gnash their teeth when they hear that armed employees stopped what easily could have been a mass shooting. They would prefer that none of the employees have been armed and just let the shooter have his way until police arrived, which by that time would most likely resulted in more deaths, but hey, banning guns is more important than lives to Democrats.
