Bad Guy With Gun, Good Guy With Gun

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.]

Self-defense in the People’s Republic of Chicago

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 in Action

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.

Concealed Carry Stops Armed Robbery

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.

But a customer at the lot pulled out his own gun and shot and killed one suspect in self defense.

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

CNN Says Women Can’t Carry Concealed

CNN analyst claims women can’t carry concealed because of wardrobe. CNN ‘Analyst’ Says Women Can’t Carry Guns Because of Their Wardrobe Choices

On Saturday, CNN’s Senior Law Enforcement Analyst (because they obviously know so much about women’s fashion and concealed carry options) Tom Fuentes made a bold statement, declaring female teachers and faculty can’t possibly carry concealed in schools due to their fashion choices…

Anyway, Jenn Jacques has the original story and her very apt demolition of his position. Just go read it.

UPDATE: Kathy Jackson of the Cornered Cat weighs in on the topic.

Another Update: A Girl and a Gun shooting league also have a few choice words on the subject.

Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Concealed Carry puts a stop to an attempted carjacking. Carjacker shot, killed by concealed carry holder in Milwaukee.

An armed 21-year-old tries to carjack a 24-year-old heading to work Monday morning.

The 24-year-old had a valid concealed carry license and fatally shot the man, said Ald. Cavalier Johnson, who called a news conference late Monday about the shooting.

Cops are looking for a separate vehicle that might have been involved.

The city of Milwaukee doesn’t like concealed carry and is trying to restrict it on several fronts, because resisting a violent criminal is bad. Or something. That is probably one of the reasons that an alderman is giving an interview about an on-going police investigation. Part of what he wants to do is convince violent criminals to not be violent criminals. I think self-defense does a better job of that.

Self-defense is a human-right.

He Suffered a Failure of the Victim-selection Process

He thought he would take a shot at a guy. It isn’t clear why. Concealed handgun owner killed man in self-defense, Austin police say | KXAN.com

Austin Police Department homicide investigators say it appears a verbal altercation that turned into a shootout began when a man pulled into the Arbors of Austin Apartments parking lot. Jimenez and some other men were allegedly sitting inside a car and began yelling at the driver, who ignored them as he pulled into a parking space. Jimenez and the others drove up as the man got out of his car, and Jimenez and someone else got out.

Jimenez got out of the car and opened fire. But the guy he was shooting at had a weapon of his own – legally carried. (This is Texas, after all.)

The Travis County Medical Examiner says Jimenez’ cause of death is a gunshot wound. The Travis County District Attorney is reviewing the case, but so far it appears to be self-defense.

Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0. Self-defense is a human-right.
