Armed Car Thief Doesn’t Stand A Chance Against Intended Victim.
Liberals will tell you that arming teachers won’t protect students. When it comes to guns they are always against the public arming themselves yet when responsible citizens arm themselves you can see the positive results. Conceal carry levels the playing field.
21-year-old Carlos Martin chose the wrong person to carjack as he picked out a 24-year-old man that has a valid conceal carry permit. Martin approached the car early yesterday morning before 6 am. He learned the hard way that the 24-year-old man was not anyone’s victim. During the attempted carjacking Martin was shot dead. Martin and the 24-year-old, who has yet to be named, both were armed but Martin got what was coming to him as he tried to break the law and steal another man’s car while threatening his life.
“This should be a wake-up call to everyone in the community that this is not a game. This is very serious,’ Capt Williams said.
“It’s sad. It’s unnecessary and it’s completely preventable,” Alderman Johnson said. “That young man didn’t have to die today. He didn’t have to lose his life, but he made a bad decision and he did.”
Echoing Capt Williams’ words, the alderman said: ‘This isn’t live-action Grand Theft Auto. You don’t respawn after you’re dead.”

“Milwaukee County prosecutors will decide whether charges are warranted against the shooter, or if Martin’s killing was justified self-defense.”
Martin had previously been arrested four times in the past couple years for robbery and battery, so this was not new behavior. According to social media, he sadly is leaving behind a family, which is unfortunate. If he just went out and found himself a normal job he would still be in the picture for his kids. Instead, he made the poor choice of trying to rob a man at gunpoint. Tell me again how guns don’t save lives.
