A good guy with a gun who was shopping in a Philadelphia corner store reacted as you’d expect to an armed duo who were waving a gun around threatening people as they tried to carry out a robbery just after high noon on Wednesday. The concealed carrier was waiting for an order when one of the two armed robbers pistol whipped him.

When the man who struck him then handed his gun to an accomplice, the concealed carry licensee drew his own gun and shot the man who attacked him twice, center mass. The accomplice didn’t wait around for to see if he could help his partner in crime.

The wounded criminal later assumed room temperature at a local hospital.

From Fox29 . . .

Authorities say a suspected armed robber was shot and killed by a customer at a North Philadelphia corner store Wednesday afternoon.

Officers from the Philadelphia Police Department were called to the 1400 block of Master Street around noon for reports of a shooting.Β 

A police source told FOX 29’s Jennifer Joyce that two young men wearing masks entered the store and approached a … 23-year-old man [sic] waiting for a food order. One of the robbers hit the man in the head with the gun and a struggle began.

The robber handed the gun to his accomplice at which point law enforcement sources said the customer shot the armed robber twice in the abdomen. The customer is licensed to carry a firearm, according to police sources.

There’s one thing that stops bad guys (and gals) with evil in their hearts — that’s a good guy with a gun.

Of course, Philadelphia residents aren’t stupid (though you wouldn’t know it based on their recent voting habits). Applications for carry licenses are up 600% there this year, due to the rampant violent crime that afflicts the city thanks to their “progressive” State’s Attorney Larry Krasner. He’s taken it upon himself to inflict his own brand of “criminal justice reform” upon the city’s residents.

 

Just last week, another man pulled what appeared to be a gun in a robbery attempt at a Philly Dollar General store . . .

The 36-year-old walked in wearing all black and approached the cashier demanding that she open the register. Investigators say the cashier then signaled to the manager what was happening. …

The manager, who has a license to carry, then took out a gun and shot the suspect in the head.

It seems that, given a defunded police department and a prosecutor with little interest in prosecuting accused criminals who prey on law-abiding citizens, an increasing number of Philadelphians have taken the job of “reimagining law enforcement” upon themselves.

  1. “Authorities say a suspected armed robber was shot and killed”

    And there is doubt as to his intentions when he pistol whipped a customer????
    C’mon, man!

    • SouthernShooter,

      Kudos on your Biden reference.

      For the benefit of readers who are not aware, both the police and news sources have an ethical obligation to use the term “suspected” or “alleged”. While it is most likely that the person who has a concealed carry license and no criminal record is a victim of the person with a criminal record, there is a non-trivial probability that the “victim” is actually the attacker and the “attacker” is actually the victim.

      Until a jury of our peers convicts the “attacker”, we cannot say with certainty that the “attacker” is really the attacker in that incident.

      • Uh huh.
        Or maybe it’s just stupid Leftist news being leftist.
        Funny how a jury wasn’t needed to call Trump a traitor for Russia,Russia, Russia.
        But hey good to know that John Wilkes Booth is still only a suspect.

    • Since no names or descriptions were provided.
      I’m going to go out on a limb here, the perps were the “usual suspects”?

      • Do you by chance mean black street thugs? Looks like these good boys, great students both tried to rob the wrong guy.

    • and other demon-rat utopias across the fruited plain. the 13% commit over 50% of the crime. No red flags for them, only black BLM signs

  2. CCWs in Philadelphia are doing something better than the sanitation department, police and the court system in taking out the trash.

  3. And the anti-guners will add all the self-defense shootings to their list of gun violence victims. Just like all the guns with the serial numbers removed get added to the tally known as ghost guns.

  4. The first time I heard the expression, “Play stupid games. Win stupid prizes.”, was on this site. I had seen the phenomenon before. I just didn’t know there was a name for it. Seems the words are as relevant as they ever were.

    • Don’t know if it originated in Philly but I certainly grew up hearing it as well as seeing it in action. Used to be the cops doing the beating and shooting but whatever works.

  5. Unpossible. Right wing paranoid lies. herr dacian the nazi says that resisting the bad guys will simply get you killed.

    And he would never lie to us, would he?

  6. I could care less if the victim had a politically correct CCW. After all…Did the frickin perp have one?

  7. Kudos, but the only rational response to living in dacian’s dystopian, proto-fascist, democrat hellhole is to LEAVE.

    • Liberty wise it beats NY/NJ/MD but taxes and fees in Philly do tend to drive most people out of the city limits where practicable.

    • This guy ⬆️ enjoys β€˜happy ending’ massages down at the local gay bar 🀣.

      • avatar Geoff "A day without an obsessed, obviously brain-damaged and mentally-ill demented troll (who deserves to live in New Jersey) PR

        If there’s anyone who knows all about β€˜happy ending’ massages down at the local gay bar’, it’s the mentally-ill demented troll known as ‘PeeGee 2’, a known liar who claims he has been issued a carry permit issued by the state of New Jersey.

        He also lies about being ‘highly educated’, as he refuses to provide the proof to back up that claim.

        Poor, bitter, PeeGee2, why not end your misery and go play ‘Frogger’ in traffic?

        Please? πŸ™‚

        (After you get vaxxinated, at gunpoint, of course! 🀣 )

  8. Another stat to add to the FBI’s already steadily growing list of Legally Armed Citizens shooting and killing Criminals. Which continues to show Legally Armed Citizens are outpacing Law Enforcement in the numbers of criminals removed from the gene pool.

  9. A Dollar General manager had a gun? Does he still have his job, or has DG told him he violated some policy of theirs?

    • It was a customer who shot the perp after being pistol whipped. Either you didn’t read the article or your comprehension level is at the normal Liberal Democrat sub 2nd grade level.

      • What you just said….YOU read the whole article.
        ..it describes a second shooting at another location..if I could just remember where???

  10. lol
    “high noon”

    This is the way things NEED to happen. You want to see an end to the nonsense crime wave? People must stand up and do what needs to be done. You don’t need a license for half the country but I would still recommend it (at this time anyway). Arm yourself, carry it, practice with it, and know it like the back of your hand.

  11. If the bad guy intentionally assaulted an innocent customer it can only be assume he intends to do harm or further harm up to an include killing. The CCW holder resisted successfully, and should have. There was none of this false stuff about “if you don’t resist you will not get hurt”.

    Sure, there might be a chance that compliance will result in one not being injured/killed but the odds of that happening are small compared to the likelihood that you will be injured/killed even if you comply. Today’s criminals, overall, are not like that any more with a “if you give me what you want I will not hurt you” concept and overall criminals have not been like that for a longggg time.

    According to Kleck’s β€œPoint Blank: Guns and Violence in America” – the leading authority on the subject of compliance:

    1. Any form of resistance, except with firearm, carries with it an injury rate of 52%.

    2. Resistance with a firearm carried with it the risk of injury of 17%, but use of a firearm early in an encounter carries with it a risk of injury of 6%.

    Overall, in Kleck, you have a minimum of a 25% chance of being injured if you comply, but you are 4 time less likely to be injured if you have your firearm and are prepared to use it.

    Take away here summary: compliance may still result in injury (which includes death), resistance without a firearm carries a 52% chance of injury (which includes death), resistance with a firearm lowers chance of injury (which includes death) to 17%, resistance with a firearm early in the encounter further lowers risk of injury (which includes death) to 6%

    If you are armed are you willing to gamble that you are not in the 25%?
    if you are not armed are you willing to gamble that you are not in the 52%?

    Compliance or not, resistance or not – is not a decision one needs to make. The answer is already provided, non-compliance via firearms resistance offers the best chance of less injury. But if you want, you can roll the dice and take the chance of being a good-n-dead witness.

    As Kleck continues to be proven correct, even in this article situation, now over ~8,000 times daily across the United States, the nay-sayers and anti-gun advocates continue to cling to their disproven and false outdated (in context with today’s criminals) concept of ‘comply and not get hurt’ like its a sure thing and it isn’t and has not been for a long time.

    Do not listen to these nay-sayers and anti-gun advocates, to them you will simply be another statistic and that’s all they can offer you, they can not give you defense if it happens to you. if it happens to you they will not be there to defend you and the only one there to defend you will be you. So upon what are you going to base your chances for your life and that or your family’s lives, the chances the nay-sayers and anti-gun advocates want to force into society with their (in context with today’s criminals) proven to be an outdated and false concept of complying or the proven as given by Kleck?

    • This reinforces the latest FBI data that shows Legally Armed Citizens shoot and kill more criminals. Than those shot and killed by Law Enforcement. When seconds determine if you or a loved one. Lives or dies at the hands of a criminal. Law Enforcement is minutes away. Arm Up Carry On and be the one who survives.

  12. I have made 100 DLR every hour in one day. That was my ideal day in my life and my boss b was very content with me.. CNN is additionally intrigued from my work and is very happy..

  13. From the article:
    “Philadelphia residents aren’t stupid (though you wouldn’t know it based on their recent voting habits)”
    After the 2020 election and after the investigations into the voting process in 2020 I’m not sure the majority of voters are that stupid. Voter fraud operatives have been refining how to carry out fraud with the least amount of attention. A good fraud would give just enough votes to the fraudsters’ preferred candidate to win, but without really calling attention to a landslide victory. Unless the corrupt politician really did win a landslide majority.

  14. I hope that he doesn’t;t get charged. The “alleged” perp was not holding the gun and therefore was (arguably) not a deadly threat when he was perforated.

    Just sayin’

    (Rittenhouse SD position couldn’t have been clearer and he was charged and brought to trial.)
