postheadericon WATCH: Store Owner Shoots At Armed Robbers, Sends One To The Ground

WHITEHAVEN, TN — When a pair of thugs entered a phone store looking to make some cash, they were soundly beaten by the store’s owner.

They were already brandishing their guns, and that was all the warning the owner needed to counter the attack.

As FOX 13 reports:

A Whitehaven store owner fought back when two armed robbers came into his store. It happened just Friday evening just before 6:00 p.m. on Millbranch near Shelby Drive.

The store owner fired his gun and started shooting at the two men. He hit one of the suspects who immediately dropped to the ground. The man was taken to the hospital and is expected to be okay. The other suspect is at large.

By the time the would-be robbers made it a few feet inside the door, they were being fired on.

As the surveillance video below shows, the fight was decidedly one-sided.

One of the suspects was reportedly hit, and found at the hospital later.

Take a look at the surveillance video below:

These thugs didn’t know what hit them.

This is another example of the importance of carrying firearms at work. These robbers were clearly ready to shoot the workers at the store.

Everyone in the area was threatened because someone thought it was a good idea to attack a local businessman, and if no one was armed except for the robbers, there’s a better than average chance an innocent person would end up seriously injured, or worse.

Stay safe out there, folks.

postheadericon Man Fires Gun Into Ground As He’s Attacked By Two Dogs, Successfully Scaring Them Off

WYANDOTTE, MI — A man shot his firearm into the ground to frighten off two dogs who were savagely attacking him.

The News Herald reports that the man actually had gone to his neighbors house — the neighbor who owned the dogs who would later attack him — to warn them that their dogs had gotten out.

“(The victim) had gone across to his neighbor’s house to inform them the dogs were loose,” said Inspector Brian Zalewski according to The News Herald.

“That’s when the dogs grabbed a hold of him and knocked him to the ground. He received injuries to his arms, legs, back and the back of his head, as he was trying to shield his face.”

Police came and saw the man and the dogs in the driveway, but the responding officer decided not to shoot — the mauling victim was close enough that the officer was worried about hitting him accidentally.

Fortunately for the victim, he had a concealed carry permit.

Hoping not to harm the animals, but instead to drive them away, he fired a shot into the ground, which did succeed in keeping them from finishing them off. However, it took a taser and professional animal controllers to get them away.

The victim is reported to have been released from the hospital.

Although we are grateful that the victim was made safe and that the dogs are in custody, a piece of advice — it’s hard, but if I was being threatened by animals on a deadly level, I’d shoot the dogs and eliminate the threat.
