Off-Duty NY Court Officer Shoots Robber

posted on September 21, 2016

As the would-be robber spied his intended victim, he noticed the man was wearing a holster with a gun clearly visible inside of it. But that didn’t deter him. In fact, after the robber pulled out his own gun, he demanded cash from the man as well as the handgun. 

The gun should have clued the robber in—his target was an off-duty New York state court officer who ended up shooting the thief in the chest. He later died at a Queens hospital. 

That officer is no doubt grateful to have had his gun on him when he was accosted. Other city residents aren’t as fortunate. With former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Gov. Andrew Cuomo leading the charge, New York has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation—another example of political elites being protected by armed security while they fight for laws that leave average citizens disarmed and defenseless.
