A 14-year-old boy shot a would-be robber in the face Thursday after the man attacked the boy’s father at a pizza shop in Philadelphia, police say.
The events unfolded just before 10 p.m. on Thursday night at Bold Pizza. A man walked into the shop intending to rob it, police said, forcibly reaching over the counter attempting to steal money from the register.
A pizza shop employee attempted to stop the man when the attempted robber put his hands around the employee’s neck. The employee’s son, a 14-year-old boy, grabbed a gun, legally owned by the employee, from behind a counter and shot the attempted robber in the face, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Good! Philly has become a monumental shithole under whatever administration is being run by and with the added spicy flavor of the pandemic. But it seems Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney (D, no shit) still has not figured out what the hell is going on in its city and resolved to go for the old and work talking point.
“The volume of guns that are in circulation in our communities is at a record-high,” Kenney said at the press conference, calling for more gun restrictions. “[Crime guns] join a sea of illegal and legal guns that are accessible in the heat of the moment, turning what could have stayed an argument into a homicide.”
Only a dumb and mentally lock-stepped moron redefines a robbery into “an argument.” I figure he would redefine a rape as a “bad weekend lay” if it suits him politically. But that is Gun Control advocates for you: the victims are just emotional currency needed to be traded for political power.

UPDATE: Local TV station says it was mom being attacked, not dad.
You don’t mess with mom!
Locals support the kid’s actions. Indeed!
