“A man in Queens has been charged after he shot and killed another person who was allegedly trying to rob him, police reported … The 32-year-old was armed with a sharp object and attempted to rob a 65-year-old of money and cigarettes, authorities said. The 65-year-old, identified as Charles Foehner, pulled a sliver handgun and shot him as many as five times … He then called 911, stating he was in a shooting and the gun was in his jacket pocket. He voluntarily surrendered to responding officers. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene and a pen was discovered in his right hand. The 65-year-old was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm, according to a spokesperson for the Queens District Attorney’s Office.”
The shooting was obviously self-defense, but Foehner didn’t have a license for the handgun so they’re going after him for that. This has happened before and there’s no justification for that. This is how antigun electeds get around the Bruen decision. Expect much more garbage like this from City prosecutors.
The internet is not a good place to find legal advice, but one nugget I came across has always stuck with me and should be shared as it applies in this case: Don’t invite The Man into your life.
