Marine With Concealed Carry Permit Saves Woman From Being Beaten to Death
What were the odds this man would be at the right place at the right time with the right tool and skills? Pretty long right? Well not too long to be enough, and a salient point for those who say CCW is a bad idea over the long odds of needing it. Sometimes it’s not all about you and your need. It can be the need of defending an innocent.
A Wisconsin man who saved a woman from being beaten to death Tuesday morning credits his state’s concealed carry law for giving him the ability to act.
Charlie Blackmore Jr., a 32-year-old Marine Corps veteran, was driving home from work at 4:00am Tuesday when he saw a man violently kicking a large object on the ground. He parked his car to see what was going on and upon drawing closer to the scene, Blackmore realized that the “object” was a young woman.
When the man refused to stop beating his visibly injured victim, Blackmore pulled out his Springfield XDM 9mm.
