Robber Meets Concealed Carry Permit Holder

Learns the definition of self-defense. Teen tries to rob Detroiter, ends up shot by victim | The Detroit News
"The 17-year-old came up behind a 32-year-old man behind the apartment building and tried to rob him at gunpoint," Roach said. "But the 32-year-old had a CCW (a license to carry a concealed weapon), and had his own sidearm with him. He pulled his weapon and they exchanged gunfire."

When the shooting was over, the 32-year-old had only suffered a minor injury to the head, while the alleged bandit was seriously wounded. He was taken to an area hospital, where he remains in critical condition, [Detroit Police spokesman John] Roach said.
Now the Brady Bunch and that ilk, will count this a "teen tragically shot." The fact that the teen was engaged in armed robbery will not matter to them. Should this 17-year-old thug be tried as an adult, well that won't matter to theme either.

Self-defense is human right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
