Stay in school. Don’t play with guns. Don’t rob people. Work for what you want,”  read the words of a would-be victim who shot a teenager that had just leveled a gun at him.

Another carjacking ended with the criminal getting shot by an armed citizen the other day in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

A teenage suspect approached a man in his car and leveled a gun at him, the man in the car responded by drawing his own firearm and shooting the suspect 5 times.

I saw the gun and I thought he was going to shoot me and take the car, so I retaliated as fast as I could. And just to see another day, I had to shoot the guy,” the would-be victim told ABC 6.

He continued saying “I was shaken up at first and the police calmed me down a lot and they made me feel real comfortable.

Police revealed that the carjacking suspect showed up at the hospital not long after the interaction and confessed to being at the scene of the shooting. Police also revealed that the victim was a holder of a valid concealed carry permit.

This situation had an excellent resolution, the would-be victim is just that, a would-be victim, and the carjacker will be sitting in a hospital until the police take him into custody. Unfortunately, this was not the only carjacking in the city that night and these other carjackings had very poor outcomes.

One man was approached in a parking garage by a gang of 4 men who had guns, he flashed his gun in an effort to resolve the conflict. While this display scared off some of the criminals one of them fired at him and he was injured although thankfully the round only hit his foot.

Another carjacking in the city ended with the criminals getting away with the car only to crash it further down the road.

Crime is on the rise in America and while nothing is guaranteed you do play a major role in your own safety. You don’t get an outright choice as to whether or not you will be a victim or not, but you sure can steer the odds in your favor.

Concealed carry should be legal in all states for law abiding citizens! Then let’s see how crime rates and murder rates drop. Think the criminal might think twice knowing he might get a taste of his own medicine

Exactly, because the criminals already carry and follow no laws and cops are buried in work and overworked. Everybody should be able to carry for this reason if no other. It’s called an even field!

It is, Constitutionally…. The Amendment II is not ambiguous. The problem is too many “politicians’ medaling unconsciously and too few Citizens unfamiliar with said Constitution.

Funny how the left wants to promote abortion which is not in the Constitution while wanting to eliminate gun rights which is.

Mr Kalinowski Happy New Year and Merry Christmas,
This USA as you know it is walking the Roman Death Road as we speak. What people fail to see is that criminality is a result of the DC Swamp. People follow the example of their leaders. Bad leaders make bad followers. There is no more moral fiber in this nation. The last moral authority we had was the Catholic Church and that has ended. We are returning to the old west days. Enjoy the ride top the bottom. Rev J

I agree that some people follow their leaders, but I don’t agree with your theory about criminality being the result of the DC Swamp. Criminality, and all evil, is the result of individual sin and unrepentant hearts. Until hearts change, there will be no relief for our country, or the world for that matter. I think you delude yourself if you believe the Catholic church is the last moral authority; Jesus is, and no church owns Him.

I hope someone follows this carjacker and reports when he does it again. I doubt getting shot 5 times will change his behavior. And the local DA’s will put him back on the street in no time.

I would rather be judged by 12, than carried by 6! Waiting on my CWP to arrive, all classes taken, passed the written & range with 100% Agreed, Concealed Carry should be in all 50 states. But, NO wounding, fix it so the “Choir Boys” will no longer participate in Ileagel activities.

Wrong answer. You shoot to “stop the threat”, not shoot to kill. If you’re ever on the stand, that’s how you testify. In a civil or criminal proceeding, testifying that you intended to kill might have some very negative consequences. Why do you think the DA tried to get Kyle Rittenhouse to say he intended to kill? Since his attorney’s had him well prepared, he didn’t bite. I’m a retired fed who was a firearms and tactical instructor for over 25 years.

The Founders created the 2nd Amendment for citizens to be able to protect themselves. In today’s anti-cop climate you cannot depend on the Police to protect you. Each Individual is responsible for their own safety and the safety of those they love. The 2nd Amendment is not just for hunters and plinkers. Those denying citizens their GOD Given 2nd Amendment Rights should be sued and removed from any position of responsibility. They are violating citizens civil rights.

It is up to us to take them out and leave no witness for a fancy defense lawyer to turn the case upside down and let the perp go and you become the victim in prison. If you shoot someone and they live, they are your enemy for life. If it is worth drawing your weapon then make the shot clean and fast as you would to any game you are hunting. Eventually we will have them eliminated so the liberal judges will have to start turning out only the minor offenders on dope and alcohol. jwstx MAGA GBA

Some years ago I got hit by someone driving on a 4th degree suspended license. He drove off. He even threw a whisky bottle at a man that came out to see what happened. There was a mother and a baby asleep in the front seat. Never showed up to court. Again. Why is the dummy DA or judge not locking this and other evils up? This happens to much. This was about 15 years ago. But, still happening today.

criminals already are allowed to carry concealed weapons, because the far left Liberal prosecutors in the Democrat run Cities do not enforce the law….the ONLY people that pay the price are the law abiding citizens that are victims of our failed justice system.
Buy a gun, get licencsed, learn how to use it, and protect yourself. It is not the job of the Police to protect you, they carry guns to protect themselves. Otherwise you are just prey for the lawless scum out there.
