A Wisconsin Marine Corps veteran used a concealed weapon to stop a man on the street from nearly kicking his ex-girlfriend to death on Tuesday. Charlie Blackmore was driving home from work at 4:00 am when he spotted the woman on the ground being kicked in the head and stomach by her much larger ex-boyfriend. The Marine veteran said he jumped out of his car and ran over to shake off the suspect. I said stop and he starts coming towards me and thats when I drew on him. He started getting closer and I said get down on the ground, Blackmore told Fox 6 in Milwaukee, noting that Wisconsins concealed carry law allowed him to do so.

But, but, but... I thought veterans shouldn’t have guns because they were all crazy?!! /s
If the Marine did not pull the trigger, it doesn’t go into the statistics as a successful defensive gun use. Still, this is one of the many things I like about Marines - unlike congresscritters the vast majority of Marines are always faithful (Semper Fi).
I wonder what help the girls from Handgun Control would prefer in this situation: a Marine with a gun, or a limp-wrist lawyer with a protection order. I’ll take the Marine, if I’m not armed at the time.
He said that while the police department does not encourage others to do the same, he appreciates citizens looking out for each other when they do it legally and are willing to accept the consequences.
Government union PC dork. Screw you, the guy's a hero.
When seconds count...
Yeah those Marine gun nuts, bitterly clinging...;<)
Notice how a positive concealed carry story has to cross the ocean to get published?

The perp is lucky that the Marine didn’t put a round in his kneecap or in his Butt.
