As reported, an armed robber was shot in self defense by his would-be victim:
Police say that a man was in a parked car, on the 5400 block of Riverview Blvd in St. Louis, MO just after 10 PM when a robber drove up, got out of his own vehicle, approached the parked car on foot, and brandished a handgun. The victim reportedly drew his own gun and fired in self defense, striking the robber in the arms and chest, and ending the attack. The robber is said to have fled a short distance through an alley, before collapsing in front of a home. Police arrived to find a suspect, who was taken to a local hospital where he was listed in serious but stable condition, according to news reports.
Gun control, on the other hand, fails to disarm criminals. Instead, it only ensures that crime victims are defenseless against the gun-toting criminals. Indeed, even when criminals are unarmed, they tend to still be capable of killing or seriously harming their victims, since violent criminals tend to be young males who are among the strongest members of society.
