Right-to-Carry permit holder defends himself and his friend from an armed robber, KMOV, St. Louis, Mo. 09/09/2016

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

A man armed with a gun approached two men walking in a neighborhood in Granite City, Ill. and attempted to rob them. One of the intended victims, a Right-to-Carry permit holder, responded to the threat by drawing a gun and shooting the robber. The wounded thief was transported to the hospital.

Following the incident, Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons told a local media outlet, “Thankfully this individual was a concealed and carry permit holder. He had the ability to defend himself and his friend.” Gibbons also made clear that there would be no charges filed against the armed citizen. (KMOV, St. Louis, Mo. 09/09/2016)
