As reported, two masked criminals entered Big Bob’s Liquors just before 10:00pm.  One one of the criminals drew a handgun and pointed it at one of the two clerks, threatening his life.  The other clerk drew his handgun, for which he had a concealed carry permit, and fatally shot the armed robber.  The second robber fled, and a police search is reportedly underway.

Once again, concealed carry has allowed a law abiding citizen to stop a violent criminal.  Rather than being shot for not having enough money, or being shot for not having valuable enough belongings, these clerks will go home to their familes – unharmed.  Also, since armed robbers tend to be career criminals, it is likely that this clerk has saved other citizens from being victims of this now-deceased criminal.
