The Armed Citizen® January 6, 2017

Robbery just doesn’t pay when the intended victim is armed. A 26-year-old man who thought that two people in a parked car would be easy marks paid for that misjudgment with his life. The bad guy approached the car and started to rob its two passengers at gunpoint. But during the event, one of the people in the car pulled his legally owned handgun and shot the perpetrator. The bad guy’s accomplice, a 27-year-old woman who was later charged, drove the wounded man to a hospital, but he was pronounced dead on arrival. (The News Tribune, Tacoma, WA, 10/9/16)

Late one Monday night on Detroit’s west side, two men in a dark-colored Chevy Impala approached a man in his car. One of the men pulled out a gun and told the victim to get out of his vehicle. Initially the victim complied, but then, being a concealed-carry license holder, exchanged gunfire with the would-be carjacker, wounding him. The wounded gunman got back in the Impala and was taken to a hospital where police later arrested him. (The Detroit News, Detroit, MI, 7/27/16)
