A customer in a Wichita, Kansas gas station used his gun to stop four armed robbers.
News reports say that police were called to the 2700 block of South Seneca around 2:45 PM, where they found one person suffering from a head wound. According to police, a customer was in the gas station when four armed robbers entered and began to rob him and the clerk. The customer reportedly drew and fired his gun, striking one robber and sending the others fleeing. No injuries to the customer, clerk, or any innocent bystanders were reported.
Despite the dire predictions of anti-gun individuals, armed citizens use their guns in self defense every day and rarely is a bystander harmed. Just as this customer used a gun in self defense to save himself and everyone present from four violent robber while harming no bystanders, a great many other people do the same thing with the same level of success. As another example, these armed citizens used their gun to stop a robber (who was then bitten by a dog to boot). Similarly, this armed store owner used his gun to stop a pair of robbers, leaving a bystander unharmed. As another example, this armed cell phone store employee used his gun to fatally shoot a violent career criminal, saving himself and bystanders from harm. The story is the same for this jewelry store owner, who stopped an armed robber while causing no harm to any employees or customers.
Armed self defense works, and is a net safety improvement over trying to cooperate with robbersor attempting to flee from robbers, as it defies logic to expect a violent criminal to display mercy while they go about committing their crimes.
