The video surveillance showed that the CCW holder first got his pregnant wife to safety, good move. He also fired some 7 rounds at the shotgun perp after the bad guy aimed the shotgun at him. Also a good move, laying down a lot of lead instead of shooting once and looking.
But the clincher is that this was the first time the CCW holder had been in that particular store, which is a huge irony:
“In a news conference Friday morning, Al-Muhaahid said it was fate that he was in the Aldi store when he was. He believes had he known that guns *were not allowed* in that store, he would have never shopped there because of his concealed carry beliefs.”
Apparently, the Aldi store had a sign that guns were prohibited, and he didn’t see it, nor would have he shopped there if he had!
hmmmm....we have several Aldi locations around here.
Have never noticed a sign saying you can’t bring your gun in. Will have to check closely next time.
We had a similar incident at a Foodland store around here about 15 yrs. ago. A guy was in the parking lot waiting for his wife who was shopping there. Through the windows he could see 3 young punks approach the front and start pistol whipping a cashier. He waited behind the hood of his truck with a deer rifle and plugged the first one between the eyes when he came out of the store. The other two fled. They did not prosecute. The armed robbery rate around there plummeted after that.
