Texas: Civilian With CCW Stops Armed Robber

Texas: Civilian With CCW Stops Armed Robber

An aborted attempt at an armed robbery ended when a civilian with a concealed weapon shot the would-be criminal. The incident took place in League City, Texas on the afternoon of Saturday, May 7th.

The CCW holder, an adult male accompanied by his four year old son, were in their vehicle at a McDonald’s drive-through when they were approached by another man who drew a firearm in what appears to be an attempted robbery. Multiple eyewitness reports confirm that after the assailant displayed his weapon the driver drew a concealed weapon and shot him several times in the chest.  Emergencies services evacuated the wounded criminal to a local hospital. He was pronounced dead later that day. As of this writing, his name has not been released to the press.

No one else harmed during the incident. The child’s mother arrived and took their son home, while the shooter was taken in for questioning by the League City Police Department. Reports indicate that the CCW holder has actively cooperated with the investigation.

Texas has some of the most interesting and permissive CCW laws in the nation. State law allows for both open and concealed carry protected by the state’s CCW permit process.  Additionally, on August 1 of this year concealed carry will become legal on university and college campuses for those licensed to do so.

The shooting League City is still under investigation, with law enforcement working on the scene of the crime through Sunday afternoon.

    So in League City, Texas are we going to hear the diatribe that the dead guy “was a good person! He only had a few small problems with the police. He was getting his life together and was starting college next Fall. He didn’t deserve to die! If the man with his 4 year old in the car had just cooperated, no one would have been hurt. The dead guy just needed a little money to get him by?”

    Likely *NOT!* Here is a pat on the back Dad. And to quote the punch line from an old Texas joke, “What kind of ammo did you use? Nice group!”

    The ONLY reason that the holdup victim was “taken in for questioning” and the shooting “is still under investigation” is because the dead robber is BLAK.
    ? Race of cop(s), Police Chief, DA, Mayor ?
    Are there Extra Yappy & Scruffy BLM freaks in that locale ?
    Whenever there is no name or description of the bad guy(s)…it’s BLAK.
    That applied to the recent Boog Stabbing Festival in Taunton, MA, and 10 to 1 odds says that applies in this case, and many others.
