Pro-Gun Law Helping Crime Victims Defend Themselves?.
You don’t say.
Good for the Detroit Free Press for running this story.
One week after a fatal carjacking in Hamtramck, an 18-year-old would-be carjacker was killed when his potential victim opened fire. Police said Michael Evans of Detroit brandished a handgun as he approached a 36-year-old man from Troy as he got into his vehicle after having dinner with friends. The Troy man used his registered handgun to shoot Evans in apparent self-defense.
The shooting, which occurred in front of Detroit Police headquarters at 1300 Beaubien, remains under investigation, but prosecutors likely won’t charge the unidentified Troy man if his version of events checks out.
Notice that the carjacker didn’t think anything of brandishing a gun and trying to carjack somebody right in front of the Detroit Police headquarters. This case clearly illustrates which is the more effective self-defense strategy: carrying a gun or relying on the cops.
