A would-be robber was shot and killed by a concealed carry permit holder while he held the permit holder’s friend at gunpoint outside of a convenience store.
According to police, two friends were walking out of the store when a man followed. The suspect attempted to rob the pair by holding a gun to one of the men and demanding the other, who has a concealed carry permit, give up “everything he had.”
The man handed over his wallet, and the suspect patted him down, looking for other valuables. While being patted down at gunpoint, he drew his concealed carry gun from his right hip area and shot the suspect in the chest.
The victims stayed at the scene and cooperated with the police. According to the Detroit Police Department, the man who shot the suspect has a valid concealed pistol license and will not face any charges.
The incident highlights the importance of responsible gun ownership and the right to self-defense. The concealed carry permit holder was able to effectively use his firearm to protect himself and his friend from a dangerous criminal. If he had not been armed, the outcome could have been much worse.
This incident also underscores the need for individuals to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings at all times. The victim, in this case, was caught off guard and threatened by an armed criminal, but he was able to intervene and stop the threat.
Incidents like this demonstrate the importance of the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms. Responsible gun ownership can help prevent crime and protect innocent people from harm. Restricting gun rights only serves to disarm law-abiding citizens, leaving them vulnerable to criminals who do not follow the law.
Overall, this incident serves as a reminder that law-abiding citizens have the right to protect themselves and their loved ones from harm. It also highlights the importance of responsible gun ownership and the need for individuals to be prepared to defend themselves in the face of danger.
