A St. Louis man on Thursday used his firearm to stop a man who attacked him while trying to steal his car.
According to local media reports, the armed citizen discovered another man trying to steal his car. When confronted, the car thief lunged at the owner, who drew his handgun and shot the alleged thief in the leg, ending the attack.
The suspect was taking to a local hospital for treatment. The car owner was not hurt in the incident.
Massachusetts Committee To Consider Pro-Gun Legislation
A Massachusetts joint committee will hear two important pieces of pro-gun legislation on Tuesday morning.
Both H. 763 and H. 789 would repeal the current prohibition of the use and possession of firearm suppressors and replace the removed section with a provision that would allow the possession of these devices by law-abiding citizens.
Suppressors provide numerous benefits to the hunters and sportsmen who choose to use them. Most importantly, suppressors can decrease muzzle report to hearing-safe levels and reduce shooters’ risk of hearing damage, which can occur when discharging a firearm without proper hearing protection. Additionally, suppressors help increase accuracy by reducing felt recoil and shot “flinch.”
