From WCPO-TV Channel 9 in Cincinnati about a defensive gun use in Dayton, Ohio:

A 16-year-old Middletown High School football player wanted to buy the new Air Jordans on sale Saturday morning at the Dayton Mall.

But Jawaad Jabbar got there too late and the shoes were gone. . . .

So Jabbar went outside to the sidewalk and pulled a gun on a man who had just bought the shoes, Phares said.

Only, the man had a gun, too.

“The person who he tried to take the shoes from had a valid carry concealed weapon permit through Ohio, and when he was threatened with a firearm he drew his firearm and discharged it into the juvenile, who then died as a result of a single gunshot wound,” Phares said. . . .

Police caught the other teens. They are in detention in Montgomery County awaiting charges.

They could face murder charges if it is determined that they had prior knowledge or were a party to the robbery.

The Dayton Mall was posted as a gun-free zone. Of course, that didn’t stop the robber from having his gun. Fortunately, the victim also appears to have taken his gun with him. As the video notes, when the victim used his gun to defend himself he was off of school property, but he undoubtedly had to have the gun with him in the mall. The Mall didn’t want to press charges against him.

    I never am happy to hear about someone dying. But I fully support the right of this man to carry a weapon in self defense. The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing. This argument has been repeated ad nauseam but it never loses its potency. Criminals will always be criminals but law abiding citizens shouldn’t have to keep taking it on the chin and have their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness stifled.
