Music store owner exercises Second Amendment rights to substantial effect

posted at 6:31 pm on April 28, 2013 by Jazz Shaw

Who really needs a gun anyway, right? You’re more likely to be shot with your own gun or … let’s just stop it, shall we? In Pennsylvania, the owner of a music shop found himself in a tight spot when an intruder came in, attacked him and then went after his wife. That’s a pretty bad day for anyone… including the robber.

A music store owner shot and killed a man who walked into the store and tried to attack him and his wife on Saturday afternoon in Bethel Park.

Police and medics said they were dispatched to Armen’s House of Music on Library Road at 12:17 p.m. for a reported stabbing/shooting.

Silvia Armen said her husband, Alfred Armen, came to her rescue when an intruder attacked her with a wooden night stick in the music store she and her husband own.

The police report indicates that the intruder, one Andrew Moore, first attacked Mr. Armen, injuring him. But when he went after his wife, Silvia, enough was enough. Armen drew his firearm, shot and killed the intruder. Alfred is in the hospital being treated for head injuries, but it sounds like Mrs. Armen is doing okay, mental trauma aside.

These are the stories that never get reported in the national media because they don’t support the meme being pushed by second amendment opponents. All’s well that ends well, so it remains a local story only, never mentioned on the floors of Congress. But the nearly tragic story of Mr. and Mrs. Armen’s music store boils down to one thing and one thing only:

A good guy with a gun.

You offer that in defense of Jazz’s dismissal of statistics based on a single incident?
Zowz.

No, I offer that based on the fact that incidents such as this one happen on a daily basis across the country – where the law-abiding citizen uses a gun to stop a crime or defend themselves.
Naturally you wouldn’t understand that since you’re playing the “lalalalalala can’t hear you game” all the time and the national level LSM helps your ignorance by not reporting these events.
Do you really need me to start posting links to all the local news reports AGAIN?

I could do this all day verbaluntic – except I have other things to do.

Try doing a little actual research of your own and see just how often guns are used to to stop criminals.

No.
Ack…too late.

I guess you’re not following, though.
Anecdotal stories do refute the statistics that Jazz dismisses.
So, sure…you can ‘do this all day’ if you want.
But you could also spend all day posting stories about smokers who lived long healthy lives.
Get it?

You’re not catching on to the real world.
There’s nothing anecdotal about it – these are actual events occurring on a daily basis all over the country.
Are you really that dense?
