Right To Self Defense Knows No Bounds

From Reason:

Last Saturday in Louisville, Kentucky, about 300 armed members of the NFAC (Not Fucking Around Coalition), a self-described “black militia” based in Atlanta, had what the Louisville Courier-Journal called “a tense standoff” with about 50 armed Three Percenters, which the paper described as a “far-right…militia.” While the incident, which ended without violence, could be seen as yet another sign that the country is descending into 1968-style chaos, it was also a striking illustration of the Second Amendment’s enduring practical and symbolic importance that scrambled conventional stereotypes about the right to armed self-defense.

Woman Stops Mass Shooter After Online Threat

From The Truth About Guns:

Ms. Bull could have written off the message as meaningless trolling, but when she saw that the sender had a gun in his profile picture, she decided to make sure he wasn’t a real-life threat. As it turned out, the sender, named Dylan Jarrell, was from Lawrenceburg, Kentucky – more than 600 miles away from her. Nevertheless, Ms. Bull called the Kentucky State Police and spoke with an officer who took her report very seriously.

With very fortunate timing, police found and stopped Jarrell right as he was pulling out of his driveway with, lo and behold, mountains of evidence that he was about to attack innocent people.
