An armed security guard in California engaged in a mostly peaceful shootout with a pack of would be robbers. The gunfight was caught on camera (video below) and ended with casualties on both sides.
The gunfight broke out after four individuals approached the counter and one of them pulled a gun. The good guy with a gun matched the robber’s intensity and pulled his own firearm.
In the chaos that ensued the guard was shot in the face and neck but gave as good as he got:
The Security Guard was transported to the hospital and treated for his wounds. While it is suspected that several of the robbery suspects were hit, one was dumped at a local hospital and died shortly after.
One of the other suspects has since been arrested but the other two remain at large.
While we never wish harm on anyone, it is important to point out that bad guys with guns are either stopped by good guys with guns, or they get away with whatever crime they intend to commit.
This security guard was lucky he had a firearm and knew how to use it.
What do you think, should more or fewer people in the U.S. train with and carry firearms? Do you believe in the phrase “an armed society is a polite society”? Let us know in the comments.
