Man with concealed gun defends self, 2-month-old son from robber

When your making a clean getaway, it isn't the time to double down on stupid and re-engage your victim.

Quote:
"He stuck a gun to my head, had my 2-month-old son with me when he did itů.he took $40 from me," Smith said in a 911 call to police.
After taking Smith's money, the robber fled but pointed the gun back at Smith and his child. That's when Smith acted, pulling his own gun and firing at the fleeing robber.

So I gather the man was carrying a weapon, while with his son he was robbed at gunpoint, rather than pulling his gun he attempted to protect his child by complying and handing over his money, the assailant then began to leave stopping to point the weapon at them again, this is when the man drew his weapon and shot the assailant.

If this is how it played out it sounds like he would have done nothing had the man kept running. Which is what he should have done to protect his child.

Let's see how anti-gun lobbyists spin this.

Here's a story where a guard with a gun saved people at a movie theater in Texas. Because the guard had a gun they sved countless lives. I wonder why the media never reported this on a national level?

The same reason you won't find any of the gunophobes commenting in this thread, it goes against their meme.

Not everyone can be smart, if they were, we'd just be normal.
