Texas continues to lead the country in defensive gun uses (at least as we’re documenting them). A concealed carrier in Dallas was the subject of an armed robbery attempt earlier this week.

Unfortunately for the would be robber, his victim was armed.

According to CBS Dallas:

A pedestrian took matters into his own hands early Thursday when he was confronted by an armed robber. This happened shortly after midnight in the 7300 block of Chesterfield Drive, near Camp Wisdom Road in Dallas.

According to police, a man was walking along the sidewalk when a vehicle drove up next to him. The driver pulled out a gun and demanded money. However, the pedestrian was armed as well, and he started firing. The robbery suspect was struck by the gunfire.

The suspect then crashed his cary nearby. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment but died of his wounds.

This is the 183rd defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Texas and the 1,387th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
