Been awhile since I have been around, and wated to swing by and see what the guys here at Gunslot thought of this situation.
The city of Spokane is about 50 miles south of where I live. This place has really turned into a mess as of late with violent crimes of all sorts. I conceal carry every where I go, and when I go to this city I am extra vigulant with the people around.
So last night I am on Facebook and a good friend of mine says her husband was just at a grocery store that just was robbed. I got ahold of her and she said everything was okay. I told her I can't believe a conceal carry citizen has not layed on of these scum down for a dirt nap. I mentioned to her that I carry every where and that things would have went a little different.
Her husband replied back that he was carrying and said that he didn't have an opportuniy to pull his pistol, but he did have time to call 911 on his cell phone.He also said why should he interfear with some "meth head" getting his next fix. The perpitrator had time enough to go to three seprate checkout lines before finally leaving, and they still have not caught him.
I replied back to him this morning that I thought that he had ample time to pull his pistol and that he could have at least stopped the guy and kept him there till the leo's showed up. The guy was armed with a hunting knife for god sake, and I just don't see how you could stand back and let three women have a knife held at them and not do anything. I also told him what if this assholes next victims are not so lucky to walk away.
Me personally I could not have walked away with my head held high knowing I could have done something more. So what is your guys stance on this senerio?
