A concealed carrier in Texas saw a friend’s restaurant being robbed in Humble, TX, last night, and did what any of us might do in his situation.
Well, if any of us had incredibly bad judgement.
Shooting across four highway travel lanes (each lane is 12 feet wide) with other vehicles and customers around is just incredibly stupid and dangerous.
The armed customer shot at robbers fleeing the building on the left from the parking lot across a four lane road.
To make accurate shots at distance, you need to focus on your front sight. When you focus on your front sight to make that shot, you’re not going to have the peripheral vision to see cars rapidly moving across what you’ve just turned into a hot range with innocent bystanders whizzing by at 40-50 MPH.
I’d also note that the only known hit made by the concealed carrier was to the car of a customer of the restaurant he was trying to “help.”
He’s very lucky hit didn’t shoot into a car full of innocent bystanders passing by on the road, hit someone in the bystander’s vehicle he struck, or someone in the store. He would have faced criminal charges if he’d hit anyone other than the criminals, and looking at the comments in the story, it seems like many of the residents in the area think that the concealed carrier acted recklessly.
The robbery took place Saturday night. Neither of the suspects in the robbery have been captured or reported in area hospitals.
