Car Wash Robber Shot in Self Defense

As reported, an armed robber who though that crime would lead him to easy money ended up shot, and in custody.  The attempted robbery happened on February 2, 2009 at the U-Wash car wash in Stone Mountain, Georgia.  The robber is said to have approach a would-be victim brandishing a gun.  The would-be victim was able to draw his own gun, and shoot the robber.  The criminal survived, and will be prosecuted once he is released from the hospital.  The would-be victim was not injured.

This is yet another of the many examples of armed self defense, and another reason why I support the right to own a gun.  Had this victim not been armed, he may have been shot for not having enough money, as criminals are known to do. Or, perhaps the criminal would have shot him just to be cruel.  Luckily for this man, he was armed and was able to save himself, rather than having to hope that the criminal would show mercy.
