Police officers are investigating a shooting outside of a roofing company in Florida after a 29-year-old armed convicted felon was shot by a concealed carry permit holder, saving two man from getting shot.
Police reports say that Kevin Bruzos, a convicted felon, pulled out his gun at one person before leaving the scene. Then he returned and threatened the same person, along with another man with his firearm.
However, the second person was a concealed carry permit holder and he flipped the script by drawing his gun.
After he saw the gun in the attackers hand, the second victim pulled his own gun and ordered Bruzos to drop his weapon, but he refused.
Instead, the attacker took aim at the concealed carry holder, who had no choice but to shoot him down.
After the shooting was over, Bruzos was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. The concealed carry holder who shot him in self-defense is facing no charges.
Bruzos had been previously convicted of third-degree battery, drug possession and criminal mischief. He is now recovering in a local hospital.
This should be a lesson to all criminals. Act a fool and you’ll get yourself an expedited trip to the emergency room.
Funnily enough, this convicted felon couldn’t legally own a weapon in the first place. Laws didn’t stop him from getting his mitts on a hand-cannon and using it to spread fear a threaten people.
Luckily, one of the victims had a legal piece of his own. Thus, the doctors are currently digging slugs out of the bad guy’s tummy, instead of an innocent civilian’s.
Florida’s gun laws have been under scrutiny after the mass shooting in February at Marjory Douglas Stonemason High School. Some of the policies floated around after the tragedy include:
- Raising the minimum age of gun purchase from 18 to 21 years of age
- Beefing up school security, arming teachers and school employees.
- Banning bump stocks
- Enhancing background checks
- Banning assault weapons
- Banning or limiting high-capacity magazines
