We often hear the argument from ignorant anti-gun activists that having multiple concealed carriers in the middle of an armed robbery or active shooter situation just leads to bullets flying everywhere and innocent people getting hurt.
But in reality we see that most people who are concealed carry permit holders are responsible citizens who have done more to save lives than any gun control law in the books. And this story proves just that.
Two concealed carry permit holders fired at masked armed robbers who raided a South Carolina barber shop.
According to wistv.com,
Several people, including children, were inside the business when two armed men wearing masks demanded and stole money from them.
Two of the victims with valid concealed weapons permits shot at both suspects, hitting one of them. The wounded suspect ran from the barbershop and collapsed outside.
He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead by medical staff a short time later, according to police.
CPD is investigating how the second suspect escaped from the scene, and whether he’s suffering from any injuries.
The victims were not physically injured during the incident.
Police said one of the suspect’s weapons was stolen from a south Columbia home in 2012.
Investigators continue to gather information about what happened, including checking for any available surveillance video.
The Richland County Coroner’s Office is assisting CPD with the case.
Authorities have not released the identity of the deceased suspect.
Not only were there multiple people on the scene but several children as well, and yet both good guys with guns were able to fire their weapons at the perpetrators and not hit any innocent bystanders.
Apparently the 2nd masked robber is still on the loose but he may have suffered gun shot wounds in his attempt to escape as well. Time will tell.
This is yet another incident of guns saving lives and you better believe President Obama will not mention it in any future town hall meetings.
