Detroit Mugger Seriously Injured After Trying to Attack Concealed Carrier

Istanbul Airport Terror Victim Flew to Turkey to Save Son From ISIS

Concealed Carrier Shuts Down Active Shooter at SC Nightclub

Four muggers in Detroit were surprised when the man they assaulted pulled out a gun and shot at them, leaving one robber in serious condition.

Police say the suspects mugged an off-duty security guard who was on his way home, near a gas station on the city’s west side. They hit him in the head with a baton when he didn’t hand over his things quickly enough.

That’s when the man, who’s licensed to carry a concealed weapon, shot at his attackers.

Should the Capitol Remain “Gun-Free”?

From John Lott, Jr…

Like so many mass public shootings, the gunman who attacked the U.S. Capitol on Monday first tried shooting a uniformed officer.  Fortunately, the lone gunman was quickly subdued and no one other than the attacker was seriously injured. But it raises questions of what would have happened with a more coordinated terrorist attack.

With terror attacks occurring regularly around the world, we can’t ignore the fact that the Capitol would provide a primary target for terrorists.  Indeed, an FBI informant foiled such an attack in January.

Police are crucial – probably the single most important factor in reducing crime. But uniformed police have a tough job stopping terrorists since they are often the first targets in any attack.

In late 2013, Ron Noble, who at the time was secretary-general of Interpol, Europe’s version of the FBI, noted two means of protecting people from mass shootings:

“One is to say we want an armed citizenry; you can see the reason for that. Another is to say the enclaves (should be) so secure that in order to get into the soft target, you’re going to have to pass through extraordinary security.”

But with terrorists planning these attacks many months or even years in advance, Noble warned that his experience taught him it was virtually impossible to stop killers from getting weapons.

Bill Adds Michigan Libraries to Killing Zones

An awful bill with many sponsors, it was introduced early in this legislative session. This proposed law would add libraries to the list of Mass Murderer Empowerment Zones (The so-called “Pistol Free Zones” where a licensed concealed carrier may not carry a concealed pistol.) So, in addition to the other places where law-abiding citizens are left vulnerable to criminal attack, such as hospitals, churches, etc. (The full list reads like a psychopath’s shopping list for victims), libraries would be off limits.

Today’s example is House Bill 4261.
