He decides to rob a store and meets two citizens with concealed weapons. Man attempting armed robbery dies after customers shoot him.
According to police at the scene, the suspect entered the store and displayed a weapon. Then two customers discharged their weapons. He did not appear to have taken anything from the store.
The would-be bad-guy was taken to a local hospital where he died of his injuries.
Police are still investigating, because that is what they do, but concealed carry is legal in Indiana.
Self-defense is a human-right.
Stops a bad guy with a gun at a school event. Police: Armed bystander takes down gunman at Titusville back to school event.
The shooting occurred at Isaac Campbell Park on South Street shortly after 5:20 p.m. when the shooter, whom police have not identified, returned to the park after a fistfight and began firing.
A bystander licensed to a carry a firearm then shot the shooter, who was flown to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said
Under the “That’s What You Call Ironic” heading…
A back to school event called “Peace in the City” was going on at the park when the shooting happened.
So are we happy that parks in Florida allow armed good-guys? Or will the Left maintain that “This should have been a gun-free zone?” Do you think a “No guns allowed” sign would have stopped the bad guy?
Don’t expect this to get much coverage in the Mainstream Media, because it will spoil the narrative.

Even and especially if that security includes armed teachers. A Cop Who Responded to a Deadly School Shooting Explains Why He Now Trains Teachers to Carry Guns.
December 13, 2013. About 12:33 in the afternoon. A school shooter with a pump-action shotgun and Molotov Cocktails.
After entering the school, the attacker came upon 17-year-old Claire Esther Davis. He shot her in the head before chasing a teacher to the school library where he set off the Molotov cocktails and eventually shot himself. The attack was over in less than 2 minutes. It was only 46 seconds between the time when the school resource officer called for help and when the shooter took his own life.
Cops responded but didn’t have a chance to get there in 2 minutes, let alone the 46 seconds they had between the time the alarm was sounded and the event was over.
“Cops are not the first responders,” said Cunningham. “It is the people there, the civilians. Whether it’s an active shooter or something happens at Walmart at three o’clock in the morning. You are the first responder, you have the right to protect your life, and cops are the second responders, fire rescue third. When I show up with my SWAT guys in our green pajamas, that’s an hour, hour and a half for us to get all our stuff, all our people and go. That’s way too long and that’s what happened at Columbine. Columbine, everybody set up, waited for SWAT while killing was happening.”
The Left will say “you can’t arm all teachers” and some teachers will say that they won’t carry guns. OK. It isn’t about arming all teachers. It is about ALLOWING teachers who want to be armed to carry concealed. And there are plenty. You won’t see any of them on CNN, and not just because it violates the narrative. Obscurity is a part of Security. It just can’t be the only part.
This is what the media says never happens. Well it happened. ‘Hero’ customer kills gunman during wild rampage at Tumwater Walmart
The bad guy opened fire in Walmart, then he tried to carjack a car in the parking lot. The 1st guy refused to give up his car, and got shot. When the bad guy turned to a second car, he got stopped. With extreme prejudice.
The suspect then approached a second car and driver – and it was then that Adams saw one of the two armed customers jump into action and shoot the gunman dead.
“Those men who stood up, they are heroes to me,” says Chadwick.
The armed civilian who shot the gunman was later identified as a 47-year-old Oakville man. After shooting the suspect, he immediately grabbed his first aid kit from his car and rendered aid to the victim of the attempted carjacking. The victim was later airlifted to Harborview Medical Center, in critical condition.
The would-be bad-guy is dead.
This is what concealed carry can do. It isn’t a guarantee, but if you called 911 (assuming they had a car available to respond) help would be minutes away. [Hat tip to The Ultimate Answer to Kings.]
How should a 63-year-old defend himself from 4 robbers, if not with a firearm? Concealed carry license holder shoots attempted armed robber in South Chicago | Chicago Sun-Times
The man was walking with another person at 6:19 p.m. in the 8000 block of South Oglesby when the 16-year-old boy and his three accomplices pulled out weapons and demanded their property, according to Chicago Police. The man then pulled out his own gun and shot the boy in his knee, at which point the other suspects ran off.
You could also file this under “don’t bring a replica-gun to a real gunfight,” because that is what they had – a replica. (I’m guessing something like Airsoft.)
The kid is in serious condition, but really he is lucky to be alive.
Concealed Carry Works. And Self-defense is a human-right. (Hat tip to Second City Cop.)
This is a security cam video of a would-be bad guy accosting a group of women with a gun. He then gets shot when one of the women pulls out her own gun and shoots him once in the chest. Concealed carry stops the bad guy.
I have no info on when this actually occurred or where it happened.
This is the story the Left says never happens. Customer fatally shoots would-be robber in Gary | WGN-TV
Two men approached an employee at a used car lot in the 400 block of W. Ridge Rd in Gary. They pulled out a gun and tried to rob him this Wednesday afternoon.

The 2nd guy ran like a rabbit and police are still looking for him.
