Darius Summers is a CPL holder living in The D. One day, Darius went in to a gas station for a cup of coffee, where a nogoodnick tried to take his gun. That nogoodnick most likely regrets that decision.
“I just wanted some coffee, so I walked down here,” Summers said.
He said a 16-year-old boy armed with a gun saw that Summers was also armed, and the teen tried to take his weapon. He stuck his gun in Summers’ back, thinking he was an older, easier target.
“I said, ‘All I want to do is leave,'” Summers said. “He said, ‘You can’t leave.’ I said, ‘OK. What do you want to do?'”
Summers said the teen was controlling him, but then the 61-year-old man pulled out his own gun and shot the boy in the stomach. The teen picked up the gun that he dropped and limped out of the store.
Summers said there’s no way he was going to let an armed 16-year-old make him a victim.
“I didn’t shoot to kill, I shot to save his life,” Summers said. “I got him up off me.”
If you stick a gun in a man’s back, seems only sporting of that guy to pop one in your tummy. Pro-tip: if you don’t want to get shot, don’t threaten to shoot someone.
How would this story had played out if Summers wasn’t allowed to carry his pistol? We don’t have to find out, thanks to the Second Amendment. Summers quickly transformed from the victim to the man with the upper hand. Thanks to the gun in said hand.
It’s been a long week. Good guy with gun stories always smiles on our faces (see Good Samaritans Save Woman from Purse Snatcher. Used Gun to Subdue Perp… and WIN: Texas Mom Trolls Home Intruder with Security Camera Footage and a Shotgun!).
Cheers to you, Mr, Summers.
