A true husband and a real man

In the time I've been banging on about the right to bear arms, I have heard many reasons from various gun-fearing leftie types why we the law-abiding should never be allowed to bear arms to protect ourselves. One of the arguments that I put forward is for the defense of the elderly.

You see the gun grabbers often say that when confronted with a scumbag, you must never fight, always run, always cower, always hide. But what about the elderly who can't run and hide? Not surprisingly their feeble responses are along the lines of declaring that old folks won't be able to wield a pistol and will be too frightened of using one. This isn't based on any evidence and when pressed for some specifics, they suddenly find an intense interest in their navels or something.

Another reason the gun-grabbers have put forward is that they are too frightened of guns and feel they are simply not capable of learning to use a gun and and lack the spine to point it at a scumbag and pull the trigger. It's basically a fancy way of saying that they are both lazy and cowardly and so everyone else must be barred from defending themselves with weapons.

To all the lazy and cowardly gun-grabbers out there, I present Charles Johnson, a true husband and a real man.
Orlando Sentinel - On Oct. 4, 1936, then 19, Johnson promised to love and protect his bride, Berlie Mae. On Tuesday, he did.

......Terror erupted in the Johnsons' heavily barred house on Lake Stanley Road shortly after 4 p.m. Tuesday as the couple watched TV news. She was sitting in her wheelchair. He was sitting nearby on the sofa. That's when a stranger stepped through the back door. "What are you doing? What are you doing?" Berlie Mae Johnson, 90, remembered asking as the man stepped on her shiny-clean tile floor. "By then, he had the gun to my head. I don't know what all I said."

The man ordered the couple: "Be quiet. Don't say a word. Don't move." Overcome by shock and fear, Berlie Mae Johnson said she couldn't move as a second man wearing a stocking over his face started to come through a sliding-glass door from the backyard. "It's terrible. You don't know what [they're] going to do. You expect at any moment . . ." she said, her voice breaking. "I can't hold up. My nerves are shot. He'd probably have killed me."

But the love of her life was ready.

Her husband, who goes by Johnny, had his stainless-steel Police Special revolver tucked under a cushion on the sofa. He has been protective, she said, ever since they met at a Church of God service in Cocoa during the Great Depression. "You don't think, man. You do what you have to do," Johnson said of how he grabbed his revolver as the second intruder entered. "He saw the gun and, boy, he was gone."

Shifting his aim, Johnson fired at the man still holding a gun to his wife's head. "I shot as plain in his middle as I could have," said Johnson, describing how the man jumped and ran out the door. "I think I missed." Orange County deputy sheriffs began arriving within three minutes of Johnson's 911 call. The response was delayed slightly because the home invaders tore out the Johnsons' telephone, so Johnson had to walk next door to call for help.

......Johnson bought his revolver for protection decades ago. A former citrus grove manager and plumber, Johnson said, "I'm still active. I still garden. We want to get a message out to other people. Be prepared. Keep your doors locked. And be alert."

His wife added, "And have a gun ready." Hat tip John Lott.

Charles Johnson is someone we can look up to, if that day were ever to come, we should all prepare to be ready and hopefully we will. Charles is 91, if he can do it we have no excuse.

Read it and weep in shame gun-fearing lefties, Charles Johnson is 91 years old and he has more balls, sense of duty and understanding of his responsibility to his wife than you lot put together.

And you know what folks, even though the gun-fearing are cowardly and lazy, I don't have a problem with that [it's good to mock them though], that is their choice. My problem is that, they won't stop there, they would rather Charles and his wife were disarmed and left defenseless against those home invaders. It's like an enforced cowardice upon the citizenry, because if you aren't allowed to bear arms, when someone kicks down the door in the middle of the afternoon waving the sawn-off, even if you want to protect your family, you can't. You are forced to beg, cower, hide, run and live your life on your knees.

Remember 91 year-old Charles 'Johnny' Johnson the next time some gun-fearing leftie starts whining about their various inadequacies as reason to keep you unarmed and defenseless.

Who da man..... you da man Charles 'Johnny' Johnson.
