Ax-Wielding Attacker Killed By Good Samaritan With Gun

A good guy with a gun is the quickest way to stop a bad guy. Period. In situations like this one, where you have an ax-wielding attacker, you can try and wait for the police to arrive or run away, but the fastest way to end the situation is to end the threat as fast and effectively as possible. Shooting them. People always want to argue that concealed carry will do nothing but cause more problems, even though facts prove otherwise.

A customer at a 7-Eleven store outside Seattle shot and killed a masked man who attacked a clerk with an ax early Sunday.Investigators said the shooting happened at the store in White Center at approximately 5:45 a.m. local time. Witnesses said the man entered the store and swung a hatchet toward the customer before turning his attention to the clerk.As the assailant attacked, the customer pulled out a pistol and fired, hitting the suspect. The clerk suffered minor injuries to his stomach and the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.
The customer who shot the suspect is described as a 60-year-old Seattle man who visits the store every morning to get coffee. His name was not immediately released.Authorities said the man who shot the attacker had a concealed carry permit and likely would not face charges as a result of his action."This could have been a lot worse,” King County Sheriff’s Sergeant Cindi West told KCPQ. “The clerk could be the one laying there dead on the floor right now.”
