FLA: CCW holder stops robbery
Two robbers stick up a Subway sandwich store, begin to force employees into the back room for possibly lethal purposes. But a customer has a CCW permit and a gun, and the score ends 2-0 for the defender.
UPDATE: the Sun-Sentinel has more details. The defender was a 71 year old Marine.
"They just happened to pick on the wrong guy at the wrong time," said Wesley White of Yulee in north Florida. White said he's known Lovell for 19 years.
Lovell is a former Marine who was a member of the helicopter detail that transported Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, White said. He also was a former Pan Am and Delta airline pilot who worked out regularly and was in good condition, White said.
"He's also one heck of a shot," White, 50, said."
The comments to the story number over a thousand, and are cheering for him. I liked "Subway now offers 7 six inch sandwhiches that have les than 6 grams of fat (as long as you don't put any condiments containing fat into them). And for a limited time, cap a thug, get a free value meal upgrade."
