Say it with me, a good guy with a gun………….
A concealed carrier walked into a convenience store in Holland, Michigan, only to witness a man brutally beating the female clerk. When the concealed carrier tried to intervene to help the woman, the attacker then turned his wrath on the Good Samaritan, who managed to push off the violent thug, drug his weapon, and end the assault.
A customer at a Holland convenience store shot and wounded another man he tried to stop from assaulting the store clerk, the store owner says.
The shooting happened about 10:25 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9 at Columbia Avenue One Stop, 405 Columbia Ave.
Store owner Jansen Le said a female clerk was on duty when a man described as the clerk’s ex-boyfriend came inside and an altercation ensued.
The clerk, in a phone conversation with Le, told him the ex-boyfriend began beating her up. Soon after, another customer came into the store and witnessed the assault.
The customer tried to intervene, Le was told, and the other man then began to assault the customer. Le said the customer separated himself from the attacker and pulled out a gun.
Le said the customer warned the other person to stop.
“He didn’t listen,” Le said.
A firearm can be a great equalizer. The good Samaritan could not, in this case physically stop the assault, and had he not been armed, it might have ended very badly for him
