A customer is being called a hero after pulling a gun on two armed robbery suspects at a Houston restaurant. And it underscores how critical are concealed carry laws to public safety.
The robbery attempt happened just after 8 p.m. Saturday at K&S Seafood Bar and Grill in the 7000 block of North Gessner Road.
Koy Sam and his wife were in the process of closing their Houston restaurant for the day when two armed robbers stormed in. As one of them forced the couple to the floor, the other one hit the cash register and demanded all the Sam’s cash from their vault.
But then a customer — who remains unidentified, and who was in the middle of his meal, decided to take matters into his own hands.
The customer, also armed, held one of the would-be robbers at gunpoint until the police arrived. He fired at the other suspect as he fled, grazing him, and hitting the front windows of the store. Mr. Sam had nothing but praise for the man:
“He was amazing. He absolutely kept us all calm, made sure everything was okay.”
But what if the Sams listened to radical anti-gun groups such as Moms Demand Action — as Target, Jack-in-the-Box, and others have done, and posted a “NO GUNS ALLOWED” sign at the entrance?
The ‘hero’ customer would have had to leave his gun at home, or in his car, or dined elsewhere at an establishment that reflected his values.
The question is, what would the robbing thugs have done?
A: Obeyed the “no guns” sign and left to rob a different restaurant that allowed guns
B: Ignored the sign and robbed the restaurant anyway
Well, duh. This is how easily the rhetoric of anti-gun fanatics collapses like a house of cards.
Thankfully, we Texans will never have to worry what would have happened, thanks to our concealed carry law that allowed ond brave armed customer to save the day.
