A concealed carry permit holder and father was able to stop an armed robber's spree after he and his family were victimized. NBC 6 reports that an armed robber walked into a Miami Burger King, flashed a gun, demanded valuables, then left. Shortly afterwards the concealed carry holder fired a shot at the robber in self-defense.

The robber was able to flee the scene, but police were able to apprehend him a few blocks later and he is now in the hospital. The incident at the Burger King was precede by one in which the armed robber reportedly attacked a woman and stole her iPhone. The concealed carry permit holder will not be charged with any crime according to police.

It's impossible to know how many more people would've been victimized by this armed robber had the concealed carry permit holder not stopped him. However, this story stands as a testament to the difference responsibly armed Americans can make. This man was put in a situation where he feared for his life and he acted accordingly.

Had he not been responsibly armed this robbery spree may have continued or worse. Thankfully, due to his actions, we don't have to find out.
