Concealed carry wins one

As customers watched in horror Sunday afternoon, a man stabbed a woman and attempted to set her on fire in the parking lot of a Jackson store, witnesses said.

The attack was stopped by a passer-by, who held the man at gunpoint until police arrived, witnesses said.

The CFP holder was lucky. If the perp had just walked away he would have had a very hard decision to make; shoot the guy in the back, very unpopular with the LEO's or just put his gun away and risk that some other observer didn't have him charged with endangering.

Alot has been said about this incident on othe gun forums I have looked at, and this could have turned out really bad. It becomes a very tough choice whether to draw or not and one needs to know what the legalities are and the particular local LEO's attitude on such action that was taken.

Gaffer - I'd like to think there's no jury who would convict this gun owner of anything criminal, even if he had been forced to disable the perp. The woman in the story definitely owes her very life to the brave soul who wasn't afraid to use his weapon. They should give the guy a medal.

From the article:

"He told the man, 'Stop, or I'm going to shoot. And if you run, I'm going to kill you,' " Baker said.

Police said they are looking for the passer-by who stopped the attack and would like to talk to him but don't know who he is or where he went.

Sounds like he made a good decision, used psychology and common sense by leaving. Did anyone actually see him draw a firearm? Could be a great psych job!

I thought part of the purpose of carrying a weapon was not only self-defense but for defense of other innocents being savaged in some manner.

If I saw a perp attacking an unarmed person with a weapon he would shortly draw his last breath on this earth. If I did not have a gun I would go after him with whatever came to hand for a weapon.....unless of course it was Charlie Schumer being attacked. He doesn't think people should have guns so he would have to take care of himself I guess.

IF such a person shot and killed a thug in the act of knifing an innocent person and was put on trial I would love to sit on that jury. They would never get a vote to convict out of me.

Nor I. I'd vote to give him my jury pay, instead.

That's a nice thought Naran, but that wouldn't hardly pay for a box of ammo.

What state was it?
Did his state force him to take and retake a course or
does he live in a state where they believe in a person's
ability to be self determinating.
