Concealed Carry is Good: Fort Worth police praise man who shot at Albertsons robber

It seems a man was outside an Albertsons store while his wife was shopping inside when three armed robbers entered. He wanted to get his wife out of the store but when he entered, one of the robbers pointed a gun at him:

"I really thought I'd find her in the store shopping and get her out the back door," he said. "That was my intention. ... I had no intention of confronting these armed bandits."

But in the store, one of the robbers pointed the gun at the man. The man then fired twice. The robber ran away, and it's unknown whether he returned fire, Lt. Sullivan said. Outside the store, the retired man fired again.

Lt. Sullivan said Rayshaun Johnson was possibly hit during the robbery. Mr. Johnson, 17, was injured on his backside and foot. He was dropped off in the parking lot of Huguley Memorial Medical Center in Fort Worth.

I have a lot of respect for the police, but they can't be everywhere. Most of the time they arrive after the criminals have fled and make chalk marks around the victims' bodies.
