As reported, a man used his gun to stop a robber who had just shot his wife:
Police say that two robbers, one of whom was armed with a handgun, entered a Cuban restaurant in Moultrie, GA, which is run by a husband and wife. The robber reportedly opened fire on the wife, grazing her with a bullet. Fearing for his wife’s life, the husband reportedly grabbed his own gun and fired at the suspects, sending them fleeing. The body of a dead suspect, reportedly identified as 23 year old Arius Martin, was found nearby, and the second suspect is being sought, according to police. The injured woman is said to be recovering.
In an ideal world, there would be no crime. In a slightly less ideal world, the police would be able to intervene during every crime, and stop the criminal before an innocent citizen is harmed. Sadly, we live in neither of those hypothetical worlds. Instead, we live in a world where crime is all too common, and unarmed citizens can suffer greatly when a crime occurs. The countless cases like this are why I support gun rights and encourage law abiding citizens to have a gun for self defense.
