Armed robbery at a Houston taco shop
Houston police said an armed man in a mask came inside the restaurant, demanding money and wallets from customers. However, as he was leaving, one of those customers shot the suspect.

I have not found a newsfeed where the cops said the vermin was leaving. I have to believe that this was added by the idiots in the news (specifically the on-location Talking Head) to elicit animosity against the citizen that took care of an ongoing threatening individual. The video clearly shows the now-morgue-fridge-temperature individual pointing the gun at one customer in the top left corner of the video. You have to be some dedicated pro-criminal LEO to say the guy was no longer a threat.
And no, the fact the gun ended up being a replica or bb gun affects nothing the concept of a defensive shooting.

A clearly righteous defensive gun use – unless you are a Houston leftist. Given the well-known degree of corruption and incompetence in the Houston PD and the equally well-known progressive position of the DA I would argue that the defensive pistolero chose the correct and reasonable action following the gunfight: pick up and return everybody’s belongings then vamos. HPD will eventually arrive and start looking for someone to arrest.
I made this comment after watching the video clip attached to my friend Miguel’s post. I have looked briefly and still have not see a longer clip showing a head shot with the perp already down as claimed by several. Until I see -and HEAR – that, my comment stands.
OK. I saw it. The guy is at risk. Especially with the progressive DA in Harris County. Best of luck, mi amigo.
Im surprised the talking heads didn’t stress over and over that “it wasnt a real gun”…anyone who thinks Americans shouldn’t have the right to self defense should be sent to nyc or chitown for a weekend…
Using the “reasonable man” view, if it looks like a real gun, ya don’t need to wait for the bullets.
Good job, citizen!
