Gun Control – Because a woman raped and murdered is somehow morally superior to a woman with a dead rapist at her feet.

COLLEGE PARK, Ga. – A group of college students said they are lucky to be alive and they’re thanking the quick-thinking of one of their own. Police said a fellow student shot and killed one of two masked me who burst into an apartment.

Channel 2 Action News reporter Tom Jones met with one of the students to talk about the incident.

“Apparently, his intent was to rape and murder us all,” said student Charles Bailey.

Bailey said he thought it was the end of his life and the lives of the 10 people inside his apartment for a birthday party after two masked men with guns burst in through a patio door.

“They just came in and separated the men from the women and said, ‘Give me your wallets and cell phones,’” said George Williams of the College Park Police Department.

Bailey said the gunmen started counting bullets. “The other guy asked how many (bullets) he had. He said he had enough,” said Bailey.

That’s when one student grabbed a gun out of a backpack and shot at the invader who was watching the men. The gunman ran out of the apartment.

The student then ran to the room where the second gunman, identified by police as 23-year-old Calvin Lavant, was holding the women.

“Apparently the guy was getting ready to rape his girlfriend. So he told the girls to get down and he started shooting. The guy jumped out of the window,” said Bailey.

A neighbor heard the shots and heard someone running nearby.

“And I heard someone say, ‘Someone help me. Call the police. Somebody call the police,’” said a neighbor.

The neighbor said she believes it was Lavant, who was found dead near his apartment, only one building away.

Bailey said he is just thankful one student risked his life to keep others alive.

“I think all of us are really cognizant of the fact that we could have all been killed,” said Bailey.

One female student was shot several times during the crossfire. She is expected to make a full recovery.

Police said they are close to making the arrest of the second suspect.

    I just had an interesting exchange with an anti-gun individual on Youtube. It went like this:

    HIM: Being a Monarchy DOES prohibit us from the right to self-defence. Our rights and freedoms are granted by the Crown through the Charter. You’re welcome to disagree with the Crown and be as anti-monarchist as you want, but don’t pretend that this all started with your favorite whipping boy. It’s deeply engrained in our origins as a British colony.

    ME: Not its deeply ingrained in our psychology by Trudeaupian-socialist,n anti-American politics.

    HIM: I would say that you’ve been indoctrinated into distorted views by too much American TV. “WE the people” are not the legal or political basis of the Canadian government. This is not a Republic. This is a Constitutional Monarchy. The ultimately authority of our system is not the people, but the Crown. You are free to disagree with the Crown, but it is false to say that our system is like the US.

    ME: So you disagree with the right that Canadians should have to protect themselves against violent criminals?

    HIM: I want to know who will protect me from “law-abiding citziens”. “Law-abiding citizens” are assuming a level of trust they have not earned. ANYONE with the potential capacity to deliberately murder me is a threat. That is why I feel safer with gun restrictions.

    ME: So tell me which paroled rapist or murderer you would rather have living next door to you?

    HIM: In fact, here is the preamble to the Charter: In fact, here is what the Charter says: “Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law”

    That is radically not the same as “WE the people”.

    ME: OK, so where does it say that Canadians DO NOT have the right to bear arms for self-defence?

    HIM: And once again, owning a gun is no guarantee of its efficacy.

    ME: if you are properly trained to use a gun, it will stop any rapist, any murderer, any lunatic that breaks into your home or who decides to target you in a dark, lonely parking lot.

    HIM: It’s not a case of psychological conditioning to be anti-American. American gun laws have a very specific basis: it’s considered a God-given right so that the populace may defend themselves from the government. Canadian gun laws also have a very specific basis: it is considered a privilege granted by the God-given Monarch for the defense of the Crown. It goes back to the Divine Right of Kings, not Trudeau. And we’ve ALWAYS had gun control. Look up the duties of the NWMP in the 19th c.

    ME: And history has shown time and time again what gun control and/or gun bans has done to those nations where the citizenry have been rendered defenceless against increasingly totalitarian governments. The ‘total ban” on handguns in the UK has led to a 92% increase in gun crime. Nice one.

    ME: Tell you what. Let’s say you stop into a small quiet restaurant for a quick bite. There is two other people sitting in the far corner, eating and talking quiety, You ignore them. Suddenly two men walk in, pull out handguns and blast the other two diner to death. After recovering from a momentary bout of shock, you get up and run outside, afraid for your life. In the parking lot, you are confronted by another man, who pulls out his own handgun. You beg for mercy……but the gunman is unsympathetic. he points his wepaon at you and pulls the trigger. You find yourself lying in an ever widening pool of your own blood on a cold, dark parking lot. The faint sound of police sirens in the distance is the last thing you hear, before you ask yourself “why me?” with your last breath. Because, Mr. law abiding citizen, you were a witness, you were in the way, and because you were DEFENCELESS. ….
