Concealed Carry Holder Shows Why it’s a Bad Idea to Pull a Gun on a Dad

A Columbus, Ohio, concealed carrier saved himself and his two-month-old son, and ended an alleged crime spree when he shot an armed robber Jan. 7.

According to Columbus Ohio Police, Kelby Smith parked his car at his brother’s house on the west side of the city around 9 p.m. and while he was getting his two month old out from the backseat, a man approached him, put a gun to his head and demanded money. Smith set his son, who was in a car seat, down and then knelt down to shield the child from the gunman. He then handed over what money he had in his pockets: $40.

All of this seems depressingly typical. But there’s a twist.

As the gunman began to leave, he turned and trained the gun back on the Smith, but Smith had already pulled his carry gun and then shot the suspect when he realized what was happening.

“I think I hit him,” Smith told the 911 dispatcher. ”When I shot, he fell to the ground crying.”

Although wounded and bleeding, the suspect was still able to flee the scene.
