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.
A person in the Falah Barber Shop on Preston Street in Philadelphia started fighting with another customer. The aggressor, age 40, pulled out a firearm and started shooting at the barbers and customers which included some children.
Upon hearing shots, a man who was outside the barber shop ran in, presented his firearm and hit center mass of the perpetrator with a single shot, stopping the attack. The perp died after being taken to a hospital.
Amazingly, no one else in the barber shop was shot. This good guy with a gun saved the day and many lives.
NBC10 in Philadelphia talked with Yusaf Mack, age 16:
“I heard gunshots so I ducked and I ran… He [the good guy] just shot him and when he was done shooting he ran.”
The man who saved everyone’s lives later turned himself into the police where it was determined he had a permit to carry a concealed firearm. In all likelihood, he will not be charged, citing self-defense.
Once again a good guy with a gun saved lives.
A group of good guys named the Oath Keepers volunteered their services and perched themselves on the roofs of businesses during the riots in Ferguson, Missouri. Businesses all around them were in flames, but the blocks where the Oath Keepers were guarding did not have a single Molotov cocktail thrown at them.
The Oath Keepers are comprised of ex-military and ex-law enforcement and provide free protection for businesses. They were armed with semiautomatic rifles and withstood the cold and snow in order to keep the businesses and their owners safe. The local police even thanked them for keeping the areas free of rioter destruction. The Oath Keepers did not even need to fire so much as a single shot to achieve the peace. Continue reading
