As reported, a knife wielding robber entered the Windsor Pharmacy in Bristol Township, NJ and threatened a clerk while demanding oxycontin pills. A struggle with one clerk ensued, at which point a second clerk who had a concealed carry permit drew his handgun and shot the robber in the arm and chest, saving both himself and his coworker. The robber was taken to a local hospital for treatment, and will survive to be tried for his crime.

As I’ve said so many times before, cases like this are why I support gun ownership and concealed carry.  Had this clerk not been armed, he and his coworker may have been stabbed and/or killed by the robber, who seemed more concerned about getting pills then the lives of those employees.
