For years the left has pushed the narrative that guns are evil because they can be used to kill innocent people. Now they are expanding their argument to say that using a firearm to protect against violent crime is also unacceptable.
According to KTVU-TV, an attempted robbery took place on Feb. 16 outside a liquor store in Oakland, California, Chinatown. Amber Lee reported that “a thief knocked down a woman in her 30’s to steal her camera.”
In response, the shop owner fired four gunshots, causing the robber to flee. No one was injured as a result.
Despite that fact, the store owner was arrested and now faces one count of felony assault with a firearm, KTVU said.
