A masked gunman walked into Miller Auto Sales in an attempt to rob them. A quick-thinking employee pulled out his own firearm and stopped the robbery before anyone could be hurt or killed. Two rounds stopped the criminal.
One of the customers present was quoted as saying “I’d have shot him too.”
After an investigation, police stated that Miller’s actions were justifiable, with Sgt. Scott Bales of the Chattanooga Police stating, “If you, yourself or another’s life is in danger, you have the right to protect yourself.” (Chattanooga Times Free Press, Chattanooga, Tenn. 03/28/15)
Once again, a good guy with a gun stopped a robbery and possibly saved lives. Remember: just about every criminal who carries a firearm will not hesitate to use it to commit a crime.
