Last week a man with a concealed weapons permit drew his gun and ended the carnage of innocent victims by a violent criminal who went on a stabbing spree outside a Salt Lake City, Utah grocery store.
He pulled it out and stood outside Smith’s in the foyer. And he just started stabbing people and yelling you killed my people. You killed my people.
This was a volatile situation that could have gotten worse. We can only assume from what we saw it could have gotten worse. He [the man with the concealed weapon] was definitely in the right place at the right time.And W. Clark Aposhian, a Second Amendment advocate with the Utah Shooting Sports Council, told the local Fox News affiliate,
I think the permit holder showed great restraint in not firing the firearm. This is an imminent, an immediate, on-going attack and if he believed that deadly force was necessary, he is perfectly justified in doing that.
