This video shows why concealed carry is good
I'm sure many of us here are familiar with the story of Susanna Hupp. For those who aren't, Hupp is the author of the Texas "shall-issue" concealed carry law. Mrs. Hupp was motivated by a life-changing experience.
On Oct. 16, 1991, She met her parents for lunch at the Luby's Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas, the same day George Hennard drove his pickup truck through the restaurant's front window, produced a pistol and deliberately shot customers one by one. He murdered 23 people, and then committed suicide when cornered by police. At the time Texas law did not allow concealed carry and Susanna Hupp's unloaded self-defense handgun was locked in her car. She watched helplessly as her father and mother were shot to death.
Here is a video of her testimony that I happened to come across on the internet and I wanted to share it because I think anyone who watches can't logically deny that having a concealed weapon in her situation is a good thing, maybe you could show it to an anti-carry friend or relative, it just may change their minds. The segment about the Assault Weapons is a cool bonus. Also, take a look a Chuck Shumers expression during the whole thing, It's really priceless.
Here is the link, just right click and save. Video is about 4 min long and under 4mb so it should download fast.

On a lighter note, I also came across this funny piece on YouTube featuring an episode of American Dad and how guns defend people.

The Hupp vid is very revealing and useful to have and archive. I had not seen it before so thx for that.
The Mr Dad - makes one of our very freqently made points, that so many anti's seem to conveniently forget.

I think that video says it all...
I've seen repeated video of President Reagan's attempted assassination where Jim Brady was shot...played by the anti-gun media....
I would love to see Ms Hupp's testimony propogated more often...

A powerful video--the viewing of which should be mandatory for all current and prospective members of state and federal legislatures.

Thanks for that! I had seen her before but not that particular piece. She makes a compelling witness. I loved what she had to say at the end of her statement about the 2nd Amendment!
