Motorcyclist turns tables on would-be robbers near Colorado Springs They say never to bring a knife to a gunfight. Such was the case Wednesday night in unincorporated El Paso County.

Three men who reportedly tried to rob a motorcyclist at knifepoint got a big surprise when the motorcyclist hit one of the men and then pulled out a gun.

The motorcyclist had pulled over in the 3800 block of Marksheffel Road about 6:25 p.m. to add another layer of clothing, sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Jeff Kramer said. Three men who appeared between 19 and 20 years old pulled up behind him in a black Honda Accord. Two of the men got out of the car and demanded the motorcyclist’s money. One of the men was armed with a knife, Kramer said.

The motorcyclist didn’t comply with their demands. Instead, he punched the knife-wielding man and then pulled out a handgun, which he was lawfully carrying, Kramer said. The suspects ran back to the car and sped away, Kramer said. No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing, he said.

It is estimated that between 800,000 and 1.2 million Defensive Gun Use incidents by civilians occur every year in the USA. I did a quick survey of justifiable homicides compiled by the FBI (Uniform Crime Report, Justifiable Homicides, Tables 14 & 15) from 2007 through 2011. These homicides are classified as follows: 1)The killing of a felon by a law enforcement officer in the line of duty, and 2)The killing of a felon, during the commission of a felony, by a private citizen. The average number of criminals killed per year by police is 396. The average number of criminals… Read more »

The 2nd incident posted above occurred in NC. My husband purchased my first personal handgun for my birthday recently, although I’ve been target shooting for many years using his firearms. It’s lightweight, conceals easily and shoots a .380 ACP. Perfect for me, but not so much so for one who may choose to be on the receiving end.

This is just terrible! That motorcyclist probably damaged their self esteem! That’s why we need more gun control laws!

if this had happened in California, the law abiding citizens defending themselves would be in jail and the criminals would be suing them. I should know. I live in the People’s Republic of Kalifornia.
