As reported, the owner of an Albuquerque, New Mexico coin shop used his gun to stop at least two people who were committing a violent robbery.

Police say that at about 3:00pm, at least two robbers entered Jim Coad Rare Coins, located on the 3100 block of Eubanke NE, and attacked the owner with a blunt object.  The store owner reportedly fired his gun in self defense, striking one of the robbers and sending the other(s) fleeing.  A suspect was reportedly dropped off at a nearby hospital, with stolen gold coins and bars falling out of his pocket, and later died of his injuries.  Police are seeking the remaining suspect(s).

Robbery is a dangerous violent crime that can result in great harm to a victim.  That is true whether the robbery is taking place in a business or out on the street.  Fortunately, gun ownership allows a person to be in the best position possible to defend themselves against such a violent attack.  Just as this store owner used his gun in self defense to stop at least twp robbers, this other store owner was able to stop 3 armed robbers.  Similarly, this clothing store owner used his gun stop a robber who threatened him with a knife, just as this tattoo shop owner was able to stop 3 armed robbers.  This deli owner was able to save himself and his wife from an armed robber too.  I could on and on with more examples, but the point should be clear – armed self defense works.
