In the argument against arming teachers in schools, many liberals say it’s the police’s job and that the school should rely on police to arrive and stop the shooting. They fail to understand that by the time police arrive on the scene, most of the shooting is over and students are dead.

What happened in Boonville, Missouri demonstrates just how long it takes police to respond to a call of an armed robbery in progress.

While Jim Hayes was at a convenience store, Elijah Carter grabbed a hammer and knife from a shelf and then demanded the money from the register. Hayes casually walked out, got in his car, got his gun and returned to the store in time to detain Carter until police finally arrived.

Trending: BREAKING: Kavanaugh Accuser May NOT Show Up to Thursday Hearing (Details)

(The Truth About Guns) – A resident of Boonville, Missouri, became a hero this week when he detained a convenience store robber at gunpoint until police arrived. What makes this story interesting is that our Good Samaritan, Jim Hayes, didn’t have his gun on him while he was in the store. Nor was it in his car. In fact, the gun was in his home when the stick-up happened.

According to a witness, the robber (Elijah Carter, pictured above) took a knife and hammer from the counter and demanded the cash in the register. That’s when Hayes walked out of the store, got behind the wheel, drove home, got his gun, got back in his car, and returned to the store in time to stop the robbery attempt.

When the police arrived, they found Carter detained at gunpoint…

Carter is in jail, facing multiple charges and his bail was set at $150,000. The parents of the girl who was working the register at the time of the robbery are very grateful that Hayes took the action he did and came back to stop the robbery and help protect their daughter. And liberals continue to claim that it’s rare for a good guy with a gun to use it legally to stop a crime or for self-defense.
