The use of a firearm in self-defense is nothing new. However, whenever someone has to pull their concealed (or home) weapon to defend their life, it's always a shock for both the one pulling the trigger, and for the one receiving the high speed projectiles at center mass. Back in December of last year, a man was unlucky enough to attempt a robbery on an armed citizen. Never a good idea.
After the criminal had an unsuccessful string of attempted auto robberies, including one he tried on an unarmed woman who was able to speed off in reverse preventing him from fully entering her car, he gave it one last shot. However, when he came into contact with his last victim of the night, he stumbled onto someone who just happened to be proficient with the use of a firearm.
The victim saw the criminal trying to forcefully get into his car, and confronted him. Apparently, the alleged car-robber didn't take kindly to yet another failed attempt of breaking the law, and decided to beat the 62 year old victim with a stick.
He was able to flee to the safety of his home, but there are no safe havens left at this day in age. The bad man followed the not so nimble victim into his home, clearly meaning to do him harm.
Thankfully, the man had a firearm that he was confident enough to retrieve, and unloaded a couple of shots into the bad guy's abdomen and chest. The criminal went to the hospital, but last we heard the criminal was expected to make a full recovery. Thankfully, the armed citizen made it out okay, and in good health with only minor injuries and cuts to show for the incident. And why? Because he had a gun.
Who knows what would have happened had he not been armed and ready to use his firearm in self-defense.
