One robbery wasn't enough for a New Mexico criminal, but the second one led to his undoing. The armed criminal had allegedly robbed a pizza restaurant and was fleeing when he came across a delivery driver in the parking lot. Thinking he could get some additional cash, he told the driver to hand over his money, too. But the driver was armed and shot the suspect. Albuquerque Police spokesman Tanner Trixier said the driver acted in self-defense, and no charges will be brought against him. The gunman was treated at a hospital and has been charged. (Albuquerque Journal, Albuquerquem N.M., 6/30/15]
This month's posting reflects an example from "studies [which] indicate that firearms are used more than 2 million times a year for personal protection, and that the presence of a firearm, without a shot being fired, prevents crime in many instances. Shooting usually can be justified only where crime constitutes an immediate, imminent threat to life, limb, or in some cases, property."
