In an unexpected turn of events, a man in San Antonio, Texas, thwarted an attempted robbery by drawing his own lawfully held firearm, much to the surprise of the two assailants.San Antonio law enforcement reported on Friday that a man, while using a drive-up ATM at a Chase Bank on the city’s fringe, was accosted by two individuals around 1 p.m. that day, according to Fox News.
The man was situated next to an ATM machine in his car when two individuals abruptly pulled up before him, emerged from their vehicle, and attempted to rob him. However, the man they intended to rob was far from helpless. He produced his own gun and promptly neutralized the threat.
San Antonio Police Department Chief William McManus remarked in a video statement to the press:
“It was a robbery that didn’t go well for the robbers,”
“They’re going to interview him further,” McManus said. “Right now, we’re looking at him as the victim of a robbery who was acting in self-defense.”
This incident serves as a testament to the power of the Second Amendment in safeguarding citizens from potential threats and criminals.
Those who identify as liberals often express disdain for such stories, arguing that the idea of a “good guy with a gun” doesn’t exist. They contend that anyone possessing a firearm is potentially dangerous, contributing to widespread chaos and death.
However, their objections against the Second Amendment lose weight when confronted with repeated instances of individuals using firearms to defend themselves, their families, and their properties from criminals.
