Read this whole thing.
The money-quote is here:
Azmat: I think those guys were rob me.
Me: I agree.
Azmat: You scare them off?
Me: I didn’t say a word to them.
Azmat: Your gun scare them off.
Me: Perhaps. You should call the police and report this.
Azmat: Yes, I will. You stay and talk to them too?
We told them the story, and Azmat showed them the tape.
Officer 1: They were definately going to hit the place. However since no crime was actually committed, the best we can do is look for them and see if we hit anything when we pull them over. You guys did great.
Officer 2 (to me): You should submit this to the NRA armed citizen column. We can corroborate your story.
This is why I’m terribly skeptical that all Defensive Gun Use stories that both appear in crime logs, or news stories are all of them.
Seems that all parties involved think a robbery was foiled simply because the predators realized that they weren’t the only guys with guns and decided that today was not the day for them to do evil.
No expressed violence, no crime committed, and no police report. Its not a “sexy” news story either, but if he hadn’t shown up when he did, and he wasn’t open carrying, a serious crime may have happened, and a deadly one at that! Also there were no dead bodies, or even injuries (which was one of the major flaws in the Anti’s pet that is the Kellerman study)
Carry your damn gun, you just might need it, and it just might save somebody’s life.
