    A Philadelphia, PA robber who victimized three people in a single night was fatally shot in self defense by his third victim.



    Police say that a robber, who had already victimized two other people that evening, approached his third victim just after midnight. The robber reportedly shoved the victim against a vehicle, threatened him, and demanded money. The victim, who was armed for self defense, drew his handgun and shot the robber, ending the attack. A bystander called 911, and police arrived to find the robber dead and the victim unharmed. The victim had a concealed carry permit, and police say they do not expect any charges will be filed against the robbery victim.



    Once again, concealed carry has allowed a law abiding person who was going about their peaceful business to defend themselves from unprovoked and violent attack. Had this man not been armed, he could have been harmed by the robber for not having enough money to steal, or perhaps just because the robber felt like harming someone that day. Make no mistake about it - robbery is a violent crime against a person’s body and life, not just a taking of their property. As such, robbery victims are legally and morally entitled to defend themselves with deadly force.



    The city of Philadelphia also owes this man a debt of gratitude. He took a violent robber off the streets, preventing that criminal from ever harming another victim. We'll never know exactly how many more people this robber would have attacked over the years to come, but the fact that he robbed three people in a single day makes it clear that this armed crime victim has saved numerous future victims.

    This proves that loving your neighbor by defending yourself even to the point of lethal force is a good thing. This robber had to be stopped before he robbed and maybe killed a large number of people. The use of lethal self defense may have saved others untold grief. The same thing is true of home invaders, if they will do it one time and get away there is nothing to stop them from doing it over and over. The armed homeowner who stops the home invader is very possibly saving his neighbor future grief and maybe even death.

    Maybe you should send this to Diane Sawyer

    “If you are wondering where are all the studies about the effectiveness of guns used by ordinary Americans for self-defense, well keep searching, we could not find one reliable study and the ones we found were contradictory.”

    Good job on the part of the ccw holder

    How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.

    I was under the impression that Philly is a "NON CCW" city.
    In Pa we are forbiddin from carrying in schools,fed.buildings,courthouses,and inside the Philly city limits.maybe that last one should be revoked!

    I don't suppose this made the local news, and if so, I'd like to read their slant on it.

    Nope. There's nothing to revoke. Your PA LTCF is good throughout the Commonwealth. I think the "no carry in Philly" myth is a holdover from when PA was may issue. That was twenty years ago though, I'm surprised it's still going.

    PA has a 'preemption' statute. Local governments can't prohibit-or even regulate-carry, transportation, or possession of firearms, ammunition, or ammunition components.

    The only area of firearm law where Philly differs from the rest of PA is open carry. A license is required for OC in Philly. No license is required for OC anywhere else in PA.

    Very true. I'll be CCW'ing (or LTCF'ing) when I go home this coming weekend.
