An unidentified Michigan concealed carry license holder used his firearm outside a grocery store Sunday to defend his life and that of his cousin.
Estimates of the number of annual defensive gun uses vary from as low as 150,000 to as many as 2 million per year, depending on the survey and the source. Whatever the total number, if you’re the person who has to rely on a firearm to protect your life or the lives of those you love, that’s all that really matters.
So while some claim that good guys with guns never stop bad guys with guns, incidents like one in Detroit — caught on video below for all to see — put the lie to that fanciful anti-gun talking point.
Detroit police said Sanchez Quinn, 29, attempted to rob two men at gunpoint outside a supermarket Sunday night when he was met with resistance.
What Quinn reportedly didn’t know was that one of those men was actually a concealed pistol license holder.
The perp and the cousin were both shot during the melee. Both are expected to survive.
“I turned and looked and saw the other gentleman had a gun pointed at my face,” the unidentified man told FOX2 Detroit. “I was able to knock his hand down and the gunfire rang out.”
The man, who is seen in the video wearing a black and white T-shirt and shorts, was able to take down Quinn, shooting him multiple times.
Quinn is reportedly recovering in a local hospital before no doubt spending the next few years living at the expense of Michigan taxpayers. Yet another successful defensive gun use brought to you by the right to keep and bear arms.
