I heard this on The Huckabee Report earlier and wanted to share it. Click on the January 3, 2012 Afternoon link under the media player, the story starts at about 2 minutes into the report.
In short, man sees a car, upside down in a river, children inside....he uses his handgun to shoot window glass out and then cuts seat belts to rescue children.
Here's a link to the USA Today story.
And a second story from ABC News, contains a video interview with rescuer.
So, remind me again why some are so fearful of firearms....
