postheadericon Child Shoots Self After Accessing Firearm In Purse: Why We’re Responsible

DETROIT, MICHIGAN — Some people love the off-body carry. I have been told by peers that they find it more convenient and more comfortable. This story is exactly why I disagree with them.

In Detroit, MI, a 9-year-old boy accidentally shot himself in the hand after coming across a concealed firearm in his mother’s purse, according to WDIV.

“The child was going the parent’s purse possibly looking for candy, came across the weapon,” Chief James Craig said.

The child pulled the trigger and seriously injured himself. As of March 25, he was reported to in the hospital in critical condition.

Chief Craig finds the fact that this child was able to access this weapon entirely unacceptable.

“I do support law-abiding citizens, Detroiters, to have CPLs, but I’ve also indicated in a very strong way the importance of training,” he said according to WDIV.

“You’re not a responsible CPL holder if children gain access to your weapon.”

For that matter, you’re not a responsible gun owner of any kind if a child can access your weapon or weapons.

Craig isn’t going to leave the situation alone, either.

“My position is simple: We will vigorously go after the parent or adult that allows a child to gain possession,” he said.

“The child is in critical condition. We’re prayerful that he’s going to pull through, but we are going to make sure the parent is held responsible.”

Look, people make mistakes. People make mistakes carrying concealed.

You cannot make these kinds of mistakes when you are responsible for the lives of children and what happens with your firearm.

This woman knew better, and now someone is hurt.

postheadericon [CCW IN ACTION] Concealed Carrier Stops Armed Juveniles From Robbing Burger King — Same Juveniles Responsible For Crime Spree

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA — A licensed concealed carrier drew his concealed carry firearm and successfully defended himself and the cashier after five juveniles, two armed, attempted to rob a Burger King at gunpoint.

According to RTF 6 ABC News, the two armed teenagers pointed their guns at the cashier and reportedly told her to open the drawer. A customer drew his concealed carry pistol and told the two armed criminals to drop their firearms. One of the teenagers turned his gun on the concealed carrier. The concealed carrier fired five rounds, one of which grazed the arm of the crook. Both armed robbers dropped their firearms and fled to a nearby Ford F-150.

Indianapolis police caught up with all five teenagers and they all allegedly confessed to not just the attempted robbery at the Burger King, but a string of up to nine businesses in three days.

Two of the gang are old enough to be charged as adults. Antonio Cowherd and Mikel Kendrick are both 19 years old and can look forward to a nice long stint in Indiana corrections.

Major Richard Riddle with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department announced that this group was believed to be the primary suspects in the armed robbery of multiple gas stations, a Family Dollar and a convenience store spanning the distance from Indianapolis to nearby Plainfield.

Not only did this concealed carrier put an end to potentially a string of criminal enterprises, he was able to protect himself and the cashier from harm. This is what happens when people carry concealed. Armed robbers have to walk into a business and hope to goodness there isn’t an armed citizen willing to stand up to them. When there is one, they drop their guns like cowards or they get shot. All that posturing and thug life mentality really amounts to absolutely nothing when faced against a legally armed citizen.

All five are alive — for now — but make no mistake. They’ll either learn their lesson in corrections and go about their lives or they can look forward to running into another concealed carrier down the line. That’s on them. In the meantime, we protect ourselves, our family, and our businesses. We have to. They’re obviously not going to stop.

Carry every single day, everywhere you legally can.
