What's this?!?!??! An actual story of a gun being used in defense in Seattle?
Robber's pointy stick no match for store owner's pistol
Too bad the store owner didn't get an excuse to shoot him. Hell, back in February, 10 Seattle Police Officers shot a guy for attacking them with an 18-inch piece of rebar. This stick was pointy...that makes it even scarier.
It's probably better for the store owner that he didn't shoot him, both legally and mentally. As it is the stories last half sentence 'and made sure the store owner's concealed pistol license was up to date.' has me confused. In Washington, as long as he was in his own business, he wouldn't need a concealed pistol license...
