While incarceration doesn't seem to help recidivism rates, getting shot does. While having to use your CCW permit to defend yourselves and others isn't something you ever hope to do, I'm sure the armed citizen is glad he was able to.
A would-be robber was shot early Monday when he tried to hold up a south Fulton County Waffle House, police said.The robber is being treated for his injuries.
Union City police Det. Gloria Hodgson said the suspect entered the Waffle House in the 4300 block of Jonesboro Road just before 2 a.m., “brandishing a pistol and demanding money.”
A customer inside the 24-hour diner shot the robbery suspect, Hodgson said.
