Gun control activists are always saying that the best way to survive an armed robbery is simply to comply with everything the robber says to do. But if someone is pointing a gun at you to rob you he is already showing he cannot be trusted, and you cannot just expect that he will value your life.
Sadly, two hikers were shot by an armed robber on Saturday, and they did everything the robber asked them to do.
According to CBS News the two men were hiking on a trail in northern California when the armed robber approached them. After robbing the men the suspect shot both men. One of the men died at the scene while the other struggled to survive the gun shot wound. 3 hours later other hikers were walking through the area when they came upon the scene.
Francis “Pat” Gregory, 69, of West Tisbury, and a 76-year-old man from Manton, California, were hiking a trail north of Red Bluff on Friday when they were confronted by a gunman, said Tehama County Sheriff’s Lt. Dave Greer.
The robber shot the men after taking their money and belongings, and left the victims for dead on a remote part of the trail until another hiker came upon them about three hours later.
Gregory died at the scene; the surviving victim was hospitalized with critical injuries. A doctor told investigators he was expected to pull through, Greer said.
Our thoughts and prayers go to family of the man who died. And we hope this can be a reminder for gun owners to carry, especially in situations like this where help is so far away.
