Liberal Philadelphia has now witnessed three separate incidences of legally armed citizens shooting carjackers as they attempted to steal their cars as the crime continues to spiral out of control nationwide.

As Fox News reports:

A teenage attempted carjacker was shot and critically injured in Philadelphia after he allegedly tried to steal the vehicle of a legally armed driver, according to a local affiliate report.

Thursday marked the third time since the start of 2022 that an alleged carjacker was wounded by a legal gun owner, FOX 29 reported. According to local media, two attempted carjackers approached the 60-year-old driver around 8 p.m. local time on Cherokee Street in Mount Airy.

The man had been in the process of exiting his car when the young suspects pointed a firearm at his head and ordered him to hand over the car keys, the report states. But instead, the driver also brandished a gun and the groups exchanged fire.

One of the suspects was wounded, and the pair fled after more than a dozen shots were fired between both sides, FOX 29 reported. Police later caught up to the suspect three blocks away, where they found the would-be carjacker, 16, inside a stolen Jeep with a bleeding leg wound, police told the news station.

Police if Philadelphia have received 90 reports of carjackings in 2022 after only two weeks. In addition carjacking increased 34 percent between 2020 and 2021.

Let’s not be hasty, Bug D. There is something to be said in behalf of the edged weapon practitioners who reside within and alongside their firearm-equipped compatriots.

You know, nothing says, “justice” louder than dismemberment. A one-eyed, limping, ex-car jacker with a severed Achilles tendon, or a fingerless mugger, is like a walking (or limping) “Crime Does Not Pay” ad.

And, in the forgetful absence of a defensive firearm, a 3″ blade at CQ is often the better and more lethal choice of those defending themselves from rapists or robbers.

that is if you are trained in knife fighting. I do agree any weapon is better than none and in some close in encounters knives could be a better choice but using a gun can be a very hard task for people who relly don’t want to hurt anyone (and we all know that any hesitation caan be deadly for the person who is trying to defend themselves) a knife compounds that problem… just sayin

The Muslims quite agree: you steal something, off with your HAND.

Sounds good to me. It’s about time people defend themselves from these thugs allowed to run loose in these communist cities. Hopefully the nuts in the courts won’t just turn them loose.

where dems are at the top of the list presently for being idiots, and in my opinion total law breakers with their no accountability actions and corruption and trying to bring America down right before anybody (yes even idiots) eyes Reps have been letting this go fr ever (including you and me) and many reps are bought and paid for too. They both keep this “dog and pony show” going on.
