From my home state of Pennsylvania, we have crooks in Harrisburg that attempted to rob a pair of congressmen at 11 pm Tuesday, October 14th. One of the robbers pointed a gun at Representative Ryan Bizzarro of Erie and Representative Marty Flynn pulled out his S&W Bodyguard 380 pistol, which was concealed in the small of his back.
It appears one of the robbers fired first at Rep. Bizzarro and Rep. Flynn reacted swiftly. Flynn described what happened:
“At that moment he saw that I pulled the gun, it was like he shot at Bizzarro, I shot at him, I shot at him again. It was just like a blur to me. It was so quick.”
The gunman, a 15-year old Zha-quan McGhee was arrested along with three others: Jamani Ellison, 17; Derek Anderson, 17; and Jyair Leonard, 15.
Fortunately, the 15-year old didn’t appear to be able to control his firearm and the wild shots fired by Congressman Flynn stopped the attack. Both representatives are junior Democrat congressmen and Rep. Flynn had a concealed weapons permit.
Once again, the use of a firearm by a good guy stopped the bad guys.
