Guns Save Lives

On Saturday, a violent criminal shot a store clerk, had the customers

in the store lined up, and while reloading his revolver told the

customers that he was going to kill them all.

Then a person open carrying a single-action Colt .45 came in and shot

the criminal in the stomach, saving at least six or seven lives.

I received a detailed account from a VCDL member who was at the scene

(but not the person with the .45). One of the things I was told is

how some of the customers were telling the police that the open-

carrier was a hero and how he saved their lives.

If that's not being a first-responder when no one else was there to

help, I don't know what is.

Here is the press coverage (and there won't be a word of any of this

on any of the national news broadcasts):

Richmond Times-Dispatch

Two shot in South Richmond store

By Reed Williams

Published: July 12, 2009

A gunman who had wounded a shopkeeper and opened fire on several

customers was stopped yesterday when another man shot him at the store

in South Richmond, authorities said.

The violent attempted robbery took place shortly after 1 p.m. at the

Golden Food Market at 2701 Jefferson Davis Highway, the same store

where another man was shot last month -- and only three blocks from

the scene of another robbery in June that left a shopkeeper dead.

Owners of as many as a dozen Jefferson Davis-area businesses flocked

to the scene of the shooting, and many were rattled by such a brazen

daylight attack, said Councilwoman Reva Trammell, whose 8th District

includes the Jefferson Davis corridor.

Trammell, who arrived outside the store shortly after yesterday's

shootings, described a frenzied scene. One man told Trammell that the

man who had shot the robber was a guardian angel.

"Whoever did it probably saved their lives in there," Trammell said of

the shooter.

Police did not identify anyone involved in yesterday's shootings.

The man who shot the robber is a friend of the store owner, and he was

wearing a holster with a Western-style revolver, said Managing Deputy

Commonwealth's Attorney Tracy Thorne-Begland.

After the suspect shot the store owner and opened fire on patrons, the

owner's friend shot the suspect once in the torso, took his gun and

called police, Thorne-Begland said.

Thorne-Begland said it appeared that the shooting of the suspect was

justified, although he emphasized that the investigation was in the

early stages.

Police said they expect to file charges against the suspect.

The store owner's injuries did not appear life-threatening,

authorities said, but the gunman's injuries were said to be life-

threatening. No one else was hurt.

Anthony Gregory, who lives near Golden Food, said he was in the store

about 15 minutes before the shootings, and that while he was there, he

saw a man with a baby making a purchase.

Gregory said the owner told the baby, "Welcome to the world. This is a

dangerous world, so be careful. But don't worry, God will protect you."

Police Cmdr. Steve Drew said officers had been patrolling up and down

Jefferson Davis yesterday and recently have bolstered their presence

in the area. He said it was unusual for a commercial robbery to happen

so early in the day.

The previous shooting at Golden Food took place late the night of June

12. And three nights earlier, a co-owner of the Come and Go Food

Market, which is about three blocks north of Golden Food on Jefferson

Davis, was shot and killed in a robbery.

Authorities said it was too early to know whether any of the three

shootings on Jefferson Davis are connected.

A few hours after yesterday's shootings, Said "Sam" Messaf, the man

who was shot June 12 at Golden Food, was at the store to help another

man shut down the market.

Messaf described how he had been helping out at the store June 12 when

two robbers came inside. One man opened fire, reaching over the

counter and shooting as Messaf cowered behind it, he said. Messaf was

shot six times in his legs.

He said he suffered nerve damage in his left leg and has trouble

sleeping.

Trammell said residents and business owners were scared by the recent

violence but have faith that police are doing their best to stop it.

"I'm still shook up," Trammell said. "I'm not afraid, but we've worked

so hard on Jefferson Davis -- so hard in that area to bring crime down."

Man, you get shot in the stomach with a .45..... it will mess up your weekend.

if you're going to a gunfight, make sure what you're taking starts with a .4

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

Chalk one up?

Its not a bloody game...

Its a good thing that noone besides the robber was seriously injured, but presenting cases like this as some sort of masturbatory porno-trip the way the OP is (you too can be a hero, if only you carry a gun!) is just juvenile.

I can see some of these guys sitting in their cubes having little daydreams in which they have a Clint Eastwood "hero" moment.

Its idiotic.

It's only idiotic until it happens to you. And then you'd wish you had a gun.

well the criminal did decide to play with fire ... the result ... well he got burned. what's wrong with publishing a story where the criminal was stopped from doing more harm?

What's wrong with it is exactly what I said - that its being used as a porno-trip to justify people carrying guns so that they can be heroes.

I'm not objecting to the story, merely the commentary that precedes it.

Agree wholeheartedly. These are the self same people that decry the media frenzy over celebrity (the coverage of MJ death etc) and yet when it comes to self-congratulatory stories of citizen admistered 'justice', they are all over it like a rash. There is nothing wholesome about poring over such incidencts as though summary justice is something that should be glorfied. This kind of thing is an expression of sadism and worse. Depraved.


Refusing to use the spellchick!

I have put you on ignore. No really, I have, but you are still ruining my enjoyment of this site. .
