postheadericon Armed Robber At A Denny’s Ends Up Shooting Himself In The Face After Victim Runs Him Down In His Car

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA — At least three robbers, one of whom was armed, attempted to hold up a victim outside a Denny’s restaurant on 132nd and Hawthorne Boulevard. The victim escaped into his car. During the escape, the armed robber got in between the victim and his escape so the victim ran him down.

According to Mercury News, the armed robber shot himself in the mouth when he was struck by the car. Police admitted the robber into the hospital where they say it appears the gunshot was accidental in nature.

“Right now it sounds like it was an accidental, self-inflicted (shooting) when he got hit by the car,” Lt. Steve Romero said. “The suspect shot himself accidentally.”

The round is believed to have gone through the robber’s mouth and come out the front of his face. He missed the training class where they taught that you take your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to fire.

It’s another example of victims refusing to be victims and bad guys with guns not knowing how to properly use them. No surprises there. And it’s no surprise his buddies left him behind. After all, when a violent felony takes place and one of the criminals dies or gets injured, his accomplices are charged with that damage.

Looks like more than one criminal skipped out on the check at that Denny’s.

For those targets by armed robbers, it’s hard to know what comes of an attempt to escape or fight back. It’s a constant worry in a lot of people’s minds as to whether they’ll just roll over and play dead or attempt to flee.

Here’s the thing: when you have three bad guys and their own vehicle, there’s the opportunity to be taken hostage in addition to simply robbed or assaulted. And let’s not eliminate the option of getting shot. If this armed robber wasn’t smart enough to keep his finger off the trigger, there’s a real chance that we encounter a Pulp Fiction backseat scenario.

Fight, flee, or play dead. Those are the three options when staring down the face of a group of armed criminals. This victim chose to do the first two and leave the third option for his attacker.

postheadericon Attempted Home Invasion In NY Ends With An Injured Homeowner And Deceased Intruder

ILION, NEW YORK — A local school was placed on lock-down after a reported shooting took place in the near vicinity. When Ilion police arrived at the residence, they found one intruder dead outside. It is believed that the occupant of the home successfully defended himself from the intruder through the use of a firearm.

“What we know right now is that it was a robbery attempt and the suspect entered the home, and the homeowner was able to shoot the suspect,” Ilion Police Chief Tim Parisi said to WKTV.

Police eventually identified the deceased suspect as Dasean Chastine, 24, of Kennedy Plaza in Utica. The homeowner took some damage to his head during the confrontation but was treated for injuries on site and released. This case is being treated as a self-defense incident.

While we commonly regard New York as an anti-gun state, there is a huge difference between New York City politics and upstate New York. In these areas, gun ownership is widely treated in a different fashion than in the five burroughs. That, however, has not translated to a decrease in criminal activity as criminals are under the assumption that occupants of a home are unwilling or unable to defend themselves against brute force.

That assumption didn’t pay out so well for Chastine. Another young man cut down because he took up the wrong profession. However, it’s pretty clear that if Chastine had not been shot, he would have continued to beat that occupant about the head — likely causing serious or maybe even fatal injury. All for what? All so he could take that man’s possessions and feel on top of the world for a couple days?

Well, that play doesn’t work out when you have homeowners who refuse to be victims. By owning a gun and having that gun accessible in the home, you’re able to fight back when bad guys kick in the front door. It doesn’t take an abnormal act of heroism to fight back. It just takes a little preparation.

It’s better to get treated for some minor head wounds and be alive than to have some thug parading around with your stuff in the streets and you’re unconscious or dead in your own living room. That’s not heroism — that’s just wanting to be alive.

Don’t be a hero, be a survivor. Carry a gun every single day — especially in the home.

postheadericon Home Intruder Brings A Knife To A Gun Fight — 50/50 Guess How It Ends

NORWALK, CALIFORNIA — Waking up at 2:30 a.m., a female occupant of a home in Norwalk was alerted to a potential home invasion when she heard noises coming from the front door. Finding no success with the front door, the alleged burglar moved around to double French doors in the back. He broke in and emerged with a knife in his hands.

A male occupant was thankfully armed. He shot the intruder once in the torso. The alleged suspect fled the scene but was picked up only a block away. Police had to take him to a nearby hospital for emergency medical treatment. San Gabriel Valley Tribune listed the intruder’s condition as stable.

Home intruders don’t have to be clever. They just need to be violent and fast. While any experienced thief worth his salt would use the cover of darkness and silence to achieve a non-violent ending, most armed burglars don’t worry about all that.

That’s a problem for a homeowner or a tenant. An easy solution is to stay armed and keep a gun close-by even while at home. This ensures that if you’re awoken in the dead of night, you can quickly respond.

If there’s family or other tenants, it’s always good to at least have a chat and have a contingency plan laid out. Who knows the disposition of the people coming to break in and it’s best if everyone knows where to stay put until police arrive.

Make no mistake — a person wielding a knife is a deadly threat. When police are minutes away, a handgun only takes seconds to resolve a deadly force conflict.

postheadericon Attempted Armed Robbery Of Concealed-Carrying Pokemon Go Player In Vegas Park Ends With Gunfire: Be Aware Of Your Surroundings

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — A group of Pokemon Go players came into some trouble while they were playing the popular game at a park in Las Vegas at 4am. The twist? One of the players, a concealed carrier, was armed at the time.

While trying to catch Pokemon –or whatever you do with that game– the group was met by two suspects that pulled up next to them in an SUV. Armed with handguns, the suspects demanded the group’s belongings.

In that moment, the armed player drew his firearm and the two sides exchanged gunfire. One person was hit in the Pokemon Go group, and one of the suspects was also hit. Both went to the hospital for treatment.

One person in the Pokemon group was shot once in the stomach and taken to the hospital. Meltzer said it’s unclear if that person shot is also the player who had his own gun but that the group of local players knew each other.

The man believed to be the suspect also appeared at the hospital with a gunshot wound to the back. A matching SUV was also found at the hospital.

Both suspects were arrested, and of course charges are expected.

I’ve seen this game played out in the wild and while some are trying to pay attention to their surroundings, most are oblivious. It’s an important reminder that, no matter what we’re doing, we are remaining focused on our surroundings at all times.

These things happen so quickly, after all.
