Detroit suburb Hamtramck apparently isn’t a place where jewelry thieves should feel safe. “‘I don’t know of any of our jewelry stores where they’re not armed, so it’s very foolish for someone to do that here,’ [city safety director Max] Garbarino said.” But one would-be robber didn’t get the message and tried to relieve Naya’s Jewelry of some of their inventory.

Police say the suspect stabbed the store owner in the head but the owner defended himself and shot the suspect four times. Both men were taken to a nearby hospital
The whole incident happened so fast, the suspect never was able to try to steal anything, investigators say.
Go figure. A seller of the kind of valuable items that are frequently targeted by criminals choosing to arm himself.
This, of course, is what armed self-defense is all about. You might even say that having the right to keep and bear arms is necessary to the security of a free state. Or city. Or small business.
We’re sure we’ve read something like that before.
