The details in this story are still limited, but we know enough to know that the anti-gun media outlets will make sure this story reaches a limited audience.
An Alabama couple was returning home on Friday night when a group of armed thugs approached the man and his wife. The crooks thought they picked an easy target, but one of them ended up with an extra hole in his nose.
According to WTVY,
One person is recovering from a gunshot would after a shooting in Hartford on Friday night.
According to Hartford Police Chief Anne Ward, the man was shot after he and group of men approached a couple as they were returning home. The group of men was allegedly armed.
Police say the husband then fired one shot at a group of men, hitting one in the nose. His injuries are non-life threatening.
After speaking with District Attorney Kirke Adams, Chief Ward says the incident is being ruled a justified, self defense shooting. No charges have been filed at this time.
Who knows how this story would have ended if the man did not have a gun to protect himself. It would probably be used as a story to advocate for more gun laws, even though gun laws did not stop these thugs from using guns illegally.
As more citizens choose to arm themselves for protection look for more of these stories to come out, even as more media outlets seek to silence them.
We will update this story as more details come in, but this might be all we ever find out about this defensive gun use.
