Detroit Right-To-Carry Permit Holder Fights Back

The mean streets of Detroit provide us with more than their fair share of Armed Citizen stories, as many residents there realize they have been left to take care of themselves against armed, violent criminals.

In a recent incident, a Detroit homeowner heard noises outside of his home last Friday around 3:15 a.m. and opened the front door to investigate. Immediately, an unknown assailant outside began shooting at him, hitting him at least once. 

Undeterred by his injury, the homeowner, holder of a concealed-carry permit, grabbed his gun and returned fire, driving off the intruder and saving his own life. According to police reports, the victim’s injuries are considered non-life threatening.
