    Shame on him for not letting his gun be used against him by the criminal and for not missing his target and hitting innocent bystanders.

    And the local press is trying to spin it already:
    "It also wasn't clear whether the establishment operated primarily as a restaurant or an actual bar, where carrying would be illegal. "

    Which is why OCGA 16-11-138 is an essential part of the right to self defense here in Georgia.

    Absolutely. Who the F! cares how much of their gross is food vs liquor! The guy stopped a proven threat without any real muss or fuss and some armchair J-school moron wants to check to see if he should be prosecuted for having a gun which actually stopped a threat!?!

    - UPDATE: Just checked the original source again and the station has taken the offensive question about bar v restr. and whether the Goody Guy might be subject to prosecution out of the online article.

    The Dallas Morning News said "Cook (LT in Arlington PD) later confirmed that the customer was carrying a handgun under the Texas concealed handgun license program."

    Interesting updates. Typical, though. This is the real scenario, not the scary hypotheticals to which we must constantly listen.

    Performing when the bad guy is armed and shooting is not something I've practiced lately.

    Warms the heart, prayers for the good guy and the strength he will need for the turmoil he will now endure for doing the right thing.
