A store in the Tacony section of Philly was held up at gunpoint tonight, but luckily, the store owner was trained in hand gun use.

The 19 year old criminal fired one shot and the 56 year old store owner fired back, hitting the theif dead center in the chest!

Kudos!

Here's one link: Armed Suspect Shot Dead By Store Owner In Attempted Robbery - Philadelphia News, Weather and Sports from WTXF FOX 29.

Yet another case of someone successfully defending their family that will be ignored and denied by gun control advocates, despite being widely reported on the news.

I like a story with a happy ending. Hope the store owner wasn't hurt.

In the meanwhile, about 33 innocent lives were lost today due to gun violence.

You mean those lives lost to criminals? Chicago? Well, yeah. Defect much?

Too bad the so-called innocents weren't armed.
