Convenience store owner fights off armed robbers, WHIO, Dayton, Ohio 09/15/13, 09/16/13
USA --(Ammoland.com)- Somewhere, everyday in the USA, 2100+ people use a gun for self defense, to stop a crime or save the lives of themselves or their family.
“We believe that the American public deserve to understand that on the average, guns save 2,191 lives and are used to thwart crimes every day,” says Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation
Most times you won’t see these tales on the news as it does not fit the main stream media’s story line of “Guns and Gun Owners are Bad“.
This is just one of those stories;
“Two men, at least one of whom was armed with a gun, entered the 3rd Base Drive Thru convenience store in Dayton, Ohio and attempted to rob the store. Store owner Thomas Mauro was in an office in the rear of the store when he spotted the pair on a surveillance feed.”
“Mauro retrieved a gun and fired at the criminals, striking one in the chest and causing both to flee. The wounded robber only made it to the restaurant next door before collapsing.”
“When interviewed by a local media outlet, Dayton Police Lieutenant Donald Burden stated that it is unlikely the store owner will face charges. (WHIO, Dayton, Ohio 09/15/13, 09/16/13)”
