On Sunday evening, a concealed carry permit holder demonstrated exactly why citizens should be armed and know how to use their weapons, as he protected himself and three others, including a woman and a one-year-old boy.

Thomas McCary was arguing with a woman on Sunday night around 7:30pm. However, when the woman's brother, Patrick Ewing, walked over to see what all the fuss was about, that's when McCary drew a .38-caliber handgun and fired at him.

McCary's three shots failed to hit their mark, but Ewing, who was carrying his gun, fired three shots at McCary, striking in the leg.

Instead of going to take care of himself, McCary went into his house, retrieved another handgun (now carrying two) and shot three more shots in the direction of the woman he was arguing with and her one-year-old son, along with another man.

Ewing fired several more shots at McCary as the man, woman and the one-year-old sought refuge in their homes to avoid being shot.

According to FOX 19, McCrary was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center and arrested about 2:30am. He was treated, released and jailed. Cincinnati.com reports that that he faces four counts of felonious assault.

His hearing was set for Monday. I was unable to find any information on the hearing, so if you read this, please click on the contact button at the top and send me the information and I'll update the article.

As for Ewing, he is not expected to face any charges… and he shouldn't. He was seeking to protect life, not take it. Well done Patrick Ewing.

Perhaps Barack Obama should focus on stories like this rather than his push to disarm the American people by hook or by crook.
