A criminal thug learned a lesson the hard way after pulling a gun to rob a man on the street. To the criminal’s complete surprise, the intended victim quickly pulled out his own concealed firearm to protect himself.
Sanchez Quinn, 29, attempted to rob two men at gunpoint outside the Super X Market in Detroit, Michigan. The entire incident was caught by a nearby surveillance camera.
Quinn was dressed in a black jacket and can be seen in the footage below pulling a gun out of his pocket and aiming it at the two men walking on the sidewalk.
Luckily, one of the men was a concealed pistol license holder. He is the one wearing a black and white T-shirt and shorts in the video below.
The CPL holder made a fast attempt to grab Quinn’s gun but shortly after he points in into his face.
The CPL holder immediately pulls out his own gun, and the two men can be seen shooting at one another.
“I turned and looked and saw the other gentleman had a gun pointed at my face,” the CPL holder, who wasn’t identified by name, told WJBK. “I was able to knock his hand down, and the gunfire rang out.”
Quinn spent some time recovering from his injuries at the Henry Ford Hospital, he was arrested.
Watch the incredible video below:
Detroit police indicated that the two victims may not have survived had one of them not been armed to protect themselves.
“It makes me mad because you have people out here that work every day. They are innocent; you want to take from them,” the CPL holder said.
“These guys, I definitely feel don’t need to be back out on the street because someone else might get hurt, and it might happen in a different way.”
The CPL holder destroyed the liberal talking point that taking away guns will result in fewer shootings.
The Second Amendment allows American’s, like the CPL holder, to defend themselves. In this situation the criminal could have easily killed him had he not been able to defend himself.
This story proves how important the Second Amendment is and how armed thugs like this should think twice before pulling a gun on another person.
