When Should Concealed Gun Owners Intervene At Crime Scenes?


A customer with a concealed carry license shot and killed a man who appeared to be armed while trying to rob a Chicago store last weekend, says the Christian Science Monitor. Though the robber's weapon turned out to be a paint gun, charges do not appear likely against the citizen, said police, according to the Chicago Tribune. This news comes less than a month after a Michigan woman with a concealed carry license shot at shoplifters fleeing a Home Depot store in the Detroit area. Though no one was hurt and the suspected shoplifters were arrested several days later, the woman faced up to 90 days in jail. Two other shootings in which citizens stepped in to punish lawbreakers also occurred in September in Michigan.
