An Arkansas man used his firearm to fight off multiple armed robbers this week.
According to local media reports:
Henry Richards was enjoying a game of pool in his garage when he was caught in the middle of a firefight. “It’s a pretty quiet residential neighborhood,” said Richards. “I kind of thought about Vietnam for a minute.”
Conway Police say 34-year-old James Allen was the victim of an attempted armed robbery outside a home on Joyner Drive. Allen didn’t want to speak on camera but told THV11 he was walking to his car when two men approached him demanding money. When he reached for his gun they shot first. He returned fire and starting running away. According to a police report Allen fired more than 20 rounds in the middle of the street.
This incident is the one of the most common types of defensive gun uses. That is, one in which no one was actually shot. Despite this being one of the most common types of defensive gun uses, these incidents are often not included in statistics about defensive gun uses. Many of these statistics and studies focus solely on justifiable homicides, which represent only a fraction of total defensive gun uses.
