A store owner in Albuquerque decided to solve the problem in the most American way possible. The would-be burglar had dug a tunnel through the wall of the building. The incident has sparked controversy and debate about using of deadly force in cases of self-defense according to the Democrats from Albuquerque.
The owner of Smokers R Us in Albuquerque was robbed twice so here’s what he decided to do.
The store owner said he started sleeping in the shop after two prior break-in attempts before the location was even open for business.
The incident occurred in the early hours of March 15th, 2023, when the store owner, whose name has not been released to the public, was alerted to a noise coming from the back room of the store. Upon investigating, he discovered that a hole had been dug through the wall and that an individual was attempting to enter the store through the hole.
The store owner, who was armed with a handgun, confronted the would-be burglar and ordered him to stop. When the suspect continued to advance towards him, the store owner fired several shots, fatally wounding the suspect.
Advocates for gun rights argue that incidents like this demonstrate the importance of allowing law-abiding citizens to carry firearms for self-defense. They point to cases where individuals have successfully used firearms to protect themselves and their property from harm.
Opponents of gun rights, however, argue that the risks associated with firearms outweigh the benefits. They contend that guns often fall into the wrong hands and can result in tragic consequences, such as accidental shootings and suicides.
After the incident, the store owner will be “patching up the hole and will be installing cameras.”
