A Missouri woman credited her Second Amendment rights for saving her family. Katie Claxton wrote about her experience on Facebook this week.
FOX2 Now reported:
A Missouri woman says the right to carry a gun saved her family’s life last Sunday night. They were filling up their vehicle at a gas station when a man, armed with a knife, opened the door to get inside.
The family of four stopped at the Rapid Roberts on Sunshine Street just west of Highway 65 at about 8pm. A man approached their car acting strange.
Katie Claxton describes the tense moments in a Facebook post:
He opened the door and pulled put a knife about the size of a machete and pointed it at me while starting to get in the van. I screamed, “Matt get your gun!!!!” And the guy stopped getting in the car and said, “You’re lucky he has a gun” and then shut the door and started walking away.”
Claxton says she told her husband Matt to shoot the stranger. Instead, he fired off a call to 911.
Officers showed up soon after and took David Middleton, 42, into custody. He has been charged with two counts of unlawful use of a weapon.
