Criminal Shot In Head With His Own Firearm – It has been re-iterated several times throughout my blogs that there are a few things you should focus on. First you need to have situational awareness to know what is going on, not lost in a phone or elsewhere. Second you need to have a means of defense on you. Finally, you need to have the drive to live. In this video you can hear why all three of those are so important.
My number one way of getting, keeping, and staying out of trouble is to identify what is going on. How this was able to happen to two different vehicles in the same short timeframe leads me to believe that they were not paying attention, which should be a wakeup call to those of you who are struggling to wake up in the morning and drive half-awake to work. In the video, the witness talks about how he saw the perpetrator slam on his brakes and slow the car down and yelling behind him. This has been a more common occurrence with a plethora of dashcam footage of criminals stopping on single lane on-ramps and rapidly exiting vehicles as you are essentially pinched in. The witness got off the exit, came back on, and saw the perpetrator do it to a second car, meaning that neither one was paying that much attention.
As I stated, having a means of defense on you is the number one indicator in my opinion between victim or defended. Neither the first nor the second cars drew their own firearm in defense. With holsters like the magnetic ones we carry here I see this as plain stupid. Second, they are wielding a several thousand-pound weapon, but most don’t see this as a viable tool, so unless you carry you are automatically less of a hard target. That said having a versatile holster that could be carried right under the vehicles steering column while still having a means of escape would have drastically removed risk to the victims.
According to the police and the witness, two shots were fired, but somehow the perpetrator ended up with the gunshot wound to the head. This means that the perpetrator fell victim to the first, not aware how close his firearm was to his intended target. He also failed to recognize the third thing I mentioned, which was the victim was intent to live, and had greater drive than did the perp. To put it into what I think happened, the intended robber approached the victim, where the victim likely let him close the distance and when he saw the opportunity he lunged for the firearm. I imagine one of the rounds fired was shot here, and after the fight for the gun the victim shot the perpetrator, albeit not fatally. The robber seeing the tables had turned gave up, as he realized his will to live was greater than whatever the reason, he initiated the incident.
