Surprise! Law Abiding Gun Owners Stop Crimes Over Christmas Holiday


 

Surprise! Over the course of just a few days concealed carry permit holders stopped at least 3 different violent crimes from occurring… sadly, the liberal media failed to report those important events.

On December 22nd, in Gary, Indiana, one criminal was killed and another wounded when they tried to rob two men from Illinois who had been traveled to Gary to purchase a car. They’d found the vehicle on Craigslist and had made arrangements to buy the car, but it was all an elaborate ruse to lure the car-buyers in.

The would-be car buyers — a 55-year-old man from Olympia Fields and a 65-year-old from Chicago Heights — called police around 7 p.m. Sunday to report a shooting on Gary’s west side. They told officers that they made arrangements to make a purchase from Craigslist, when the man and woman they planned to meet with tried to rob them, according to Gary Police Lt. Thomas Pawlak, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

When Johnson pulled a gun, one of the buyers took out his own gun and fired at the couple, Lt. Pawlak said.

On December 23rd in Miramar, Florida, a thief was shot and killed during an armed robbery at a restaurant.

A would-be thief was shot and killed by a Miramar restaurant employee during an armed robbery attempt Wednesday night, police said…

The suspect entered the eatery wearing a ski mask and gloves. The employee fired several shots, killing the suspect, Rues said.

At least one customer and other employees were in the restaurant at the time but no other injuries were reported.

“There were words that were spoken and at present time we are taking a statement from the employee that fired his weapon and bystanders that were at the restaurant as well,” Rues said.

On Christmas night in Warner Robbins, Georgia, an accused robber was killed when his victim shot him in self-defense; police are still investigating this case as a possible crime.

Do gun crimes happen? Of course they do. But the facts are clear — legal gun owners stop crime.
