Here’s a few more stories I’m betting you won’t hear much about on the nightly news:
Hollywood, FL: a gas-station clerk puts a would-be robber away – for keeps. A second would-be robber escaped initially but was captured by police afterwards.
NE Miami-Dade, FL: a robber attempts to ply his trade and runs into an armed resident. The robber does not survive the encounter.
San Antonio, TX: a resident hears noise, grabs his gun, and goes outside. There the resident confronts two thieves ransacking his SUV in an apparent attempt to steal it. One would-be thief survives; the other does not. No charges are expected against the resident.
In each case above, an armed private citizen – acting lawfully – protected his life or property, preventing a felony in the process.
But remember, folks: according to our liberal brethren those guns are nasty terrible things whose only legitimate use is hunting. You don’t need them to protect yourself, your loved ones, or your property.
