Police say a 30-year-old man was at the car wash and was approached by two male suspects who revealed a handgun and attempted to rob the car wash patron.
The car wash patron was armed and police said he “exchanged gunfire with one of the alleged robbers.” During the shooting, one of the robbers — now identified as a 16-year-old boy from Detroit — was shot and later pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Cops arrested the victim of the robbery, but later released him. Everything will be reviewed by the DA.
The would-be bad guy attacked 2 cemetery workers, and chased one into an intersection, shooting him. A bullet entered the vehicle of what the cops are calling a Good Samaritan.
That man stepped out of the car, returned fire with a legal weapon and fatally struck Hayes.
“This tragic event could have been much more disastrous,” Brownsburg Police Capt. Jennifer Barrett told WISH. “Victim three not only saved victim two’s life, but he saved potentially the lives of many others. Victim three did exactly what anybody would have wanted him to do at that scene that day.”
I suppose the position of the Left is that he should have called 911, been disarmed, and perhaps shot and killed, and the 2nd worker, who survived should also have been killed waiting for cops to arrive.
Self-defense is a human-right. (Hat tip to MaddMedic.)
Jahtheel Selmon, 29, had just started his early Sunday morning security shift at the William F. Walsh Regional Transportation Center in Syracuse, New York, when 31-year-old Andrew Booker started acting irritated after mechanical issues on a bus halted his trip.
Yeah, that make sense. Not.
Mr. Selmon was shot twice, but was still able to stop the guy with his concealed carry weapon.
Police showed up and took the guy into custody.
Onondaga County District Attorney Bill Fitpatrick called Selmon a “legitimate hero.”
He is recovering from his injuries in a local hospital.
Still if you can get past the tone, there are some good stats. For Florida anyway.
One out of every 11 adults in Palm Beach County has a license to carry a concealed weapon, state data shows. The average permit-holder is an older white man living in a neighborhood outside the county’s urban core that knows little violent crime.
And of course, being a good Leftist, he has to make it all about race. I don’t know what the demographics of Palm Beech County are, and he doesn’t see fit to include that information.
After grudgingly noting that Concealed Carry is surging nationwide, there are some stats.
The state reached a landmark of sorts in May 2019 when it issued license No. 2 million, according to a state Department of Agriculture spokesman.
The number increases by more than 17,000 every month statewide, state figures show.
So if guns make everyone less safe, is Florida less safe than it was in the late 1980s when they had restrictive concealed carry laws? I think if you look at those statistics you will find that the late 1980s and early 1990s was the most dangerous time in Florida. Not that a reporter is going to look at THOSE statistics.
A would-be bad-guy with a gun, stopped by a good-guy with a gun.
Video reportedly showed the woman was involved in an earlier altercation in the parking lot. The woman left the shopping center and returned about three minutes later, when she pulled a gun and opened fire, according to the news release.
The concealed carry permit holder reportedly returned fire.
Don’t expect this shooting to be all over the news, because the narrative hasn’t been served.
A couple coming home from grocery shopping stop at the street/gate to get an Amazon package and the US mail. They are ambushed by the ex-wife, and the ex-wife’s new husband. (Not in that order.) Two gunfights – in sequence break out.
“All of a sudden, hell began,” he said. “All I really remember was a 6’4”-6’5” man that was probably 230 pounds with a full camo mask and hoodie ran to my wife’s driver’s side with a gun and held it about ten inches from her head.”
He drew his legally-carried weapon and they traded gunfire. Then the ex-wife drives up and gets in on the action.
Around the same time, Lindsey’s ex-wife, 59-year-old Cheryl Sanders, pulled up to the scene and started toward Molly, threatening to kill her. More gunfire ensued, and Cheryl was killed.
There was a history of animosity. Several attempts at blackmail, and 5 years ago the husband, Lindsey Duncan, reached out to police saying he had reason to believe that his ex-wife had tried to hire a hit-man.
The investigation is ongoing, but it is going to be hard for a prosecutor to say that he did something wrong.
Self-defense is a Human Right. Good Guys 2, Bad Guys 0.
Kimberly Corban wants people to know that you can transform yourself from a victim to a survivor, because she did it. She also wants people to stop appropriating her story for fundraising.
Under a cover of darkness, he stalked and broke in to his college victim’s apartment in the early morning hours of May 12th, 2006. When he came upon the 20-year-old woman asleep in her bed, he covered her face and attacked.
But he never imagined he had just awakened a survivor…
Threatening the perpetual-victim state celebrated by the Left, has not made Ms. Corban popular with the Left. (See the link at the bottom.) But then her refusing to march in lockstep with the Right has has a similar effect on people over there, and she’s had problems with them as well.
This is Kimberly Corban’s TEDx Talk. TEDxMileHigh Reset, which as near as I can figure was in December of 2018. (There was also one in 2019, but this video predates that conference.) It is interesting because the audience has no reaction to some of the stuff she is saying. But then she’s an NRA advocate, (or she was) and TED tends to trend to the Left. (Understatement? Perhaps a bit.) But she does manage to get them to see some middle ground.
The best quote: “I’m fiscally conservative, and socially awkward.”
I don’t know if YouTube will complain about privacy with this video the way they go on with music videos, but the link is provided above just in case.
“East Side” is a recognized neighborhood in Chicago. (One of 77 neighborhoods.) It is 13 miles south of the Loop, and borders Indiana.
3 guys were standing on the street when a car pulls up and 2 gunmen jump out and open fire.
The 27-year-old man, who is a valid concealed carry license holder, pulled out his own weapon and returned fire, fatally striking one of the shooters, 17-year-old Michael E. Portis, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. Portis, who lived in South Shore, was dead at the scene.
One of the 3 was also killed. The other 2 were taken to a local hospital, and are expected to be OK. The investigation continues.
NBC Charlotte has learned both teenagers were arrested on the same day and the same charge last month. On Friday afternoon, Harris was scheduled to be back in court on charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon, attempted robbery, and conspiracy to commit robbery and the other is dead.
The Left and the media (but I repeat myself) is bent out of shape because a concealed carry license holder intervened when these two would-be miscreants tried armed-robbery against a store clerk.
“The patron perceived an imminent deadly threat,” said CMPD Sergeant Brian Scharf, adding, “everyone has to make their own decision whether their life is in danger or not.”
Bullets from one of the many weekend shootings in the city were lodged in State Rep. La Shawn Ford’s (D-Chicago) car.
“I think about it all the time,” Ford said of the shootings that plague his community. “That’s why I’m working with a concealed carry instructor and we’re going to go through the neighborhood and we’re going to encourage people to get their concealed carry license because it makes no sense for people not to have the protections that they need.”
Illinois was dragged into recognizing the right to arms by federal courts. It was Otis McDonald, a Chicago resident, in the seminal McDonald v. City of Chicago, that incorporated the Second Amendment as applying against state and local governments, as well as the federal government. Otis McDonald was an black resident of Chicago.
When the law controlling Concealed Carry was passed in Illinois, after McDonald v. City of Chicago, State Rep Ford voted “Present.” So people can change their minds.
Around 5 a.m. Saturday, investigators say two 15-year-old boys tried to rob an unidentified victim in the 3600 block of Reading Road.
The victim fired at the teens, striking 15-year-old Jordan Lara. He was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center where he died from his injuries.
The actual shooter, the victim of the robbery, is not facing any charges. However, the surviving teen is.
The lawyers call it all kinds of things, but those of us who aren’t lawyers usually call it Felony Murder. (Whatever you call it, the Left HATES it.) If you are committing a crime, you are responsible for all of the bad things that can result from that crime. And trying to rob someone can result in a self-defense shooting. Holding people responsible for the foreseeable outcomes of their actions? I know, it is such a 20th Century concept.
Two guys walk up to a car and start shooting. They hit an innocent bystander first.
The license holder was seated in a vehicle about 2:15 p.m. when at least two men came up and started shooting, Chicago police said.
The gunfire hit a 22-year-old man standing outside the man’s car in the 6200 block of South Justine, police said. The concealed carry holder stepped out of the vehicle, took out his own weapon and shot two men.
Cops can no longer stop someone just because they are open carrying or concealing a weapon. Both activities are legal, and absent some other specific reason to believe a law is being broken, they can’t harass people.
The Court then went on to agree with the primary argument that I made in the Amicus Brief that just as the police cannot stop an individual who is driving to see if he/she is licensed, police cannot stop an individual with a firearm (without more) to see if he/she is licensed to carry.
That’s my favorite bit of the argument, because it is the most common-sense.
Attorney Jeff Jakmides said his client acted in self-defense when he was attacked and punched by a man in the BP parking lot on Tuscarawas Street W near the Interstate 77 exit ramp. The man killed also wielded a knife that was later found at the scene by police, Jakmides said.
“He was in lawful possession of his sidearm,” Jakmides said of his client. “He has a concealed carry permit.”
Jay H. Schweitzer, 31, of Canton, died following the shooting on Oct. 6.
There were recently changes in Ohio law to dial back the often over-zealous prosecutors – who hate self-defense.
