CHL Holder Stops Gun Wielding Burglar

A man with a Texas Concealed Handgun License (CHL) survives an encounter with a goblin.

From the Dallas Morning News:

An Oak Cliff man is thankful he is alive after a teenage burglary suspect tried to shoot him.

The man, who lives in the 300 block of Hobson Street with his mother, came home Wednesday morning to drop off a newspaper when he found the front door kicked in, Dallas police said. Seventeen-year-old Gabriel Flores, who was inside the home, pulled out a handgun and fired at him.

The son, who has a concealed handgun license, fired back and struck Flores, who later died at a local hospital.
This is the second time in two days that I have commented on CHL holders protecting themselves and others from the violent acts of goblins. Once in a workplace and once in the home. In both instances the CHL holders saved lives and are to be commended.

The antis would prefer that we are disarmed, they would leave us at the mercy of the goblins. They misstate facts and use outlandish premonitions of "blood in the streets" to attempt to convince politicians and the public that gun control laws are necessary, and that we need to be disarmed. The antis would prefer that this Oak Cliff man die at the hands of the goblin, they would prefer that he did not have the means to protect himself. They would prefer that the two CHL holders from yesterdays column be disarmed and left defenseless in the work place at the mercy of any goblin who has the means to do harm. If the antis had their way, these two incidents would have turned out much differently. Innocents would have died. The antis would have then used the deaths of innocents to call for even more restrictive gun control laws.

Case in point. This teen age goblin will be added to the "kids killed by guns" statistics used by the antis to help promote their gun control agenda.

Gun control does not prevent crime. The only way that gun control will ever help to protect you from a violent goblin is if you are the one in control of the gun.

I live in Oak Cliff, and this story is making me seriously consider getting a CHL.
