“Last week one of my co-workers (and friend) said we should get lunch sometime to discuss something that he knew I would be interested in, but didn’t want to discuss around the office (cube farm, no privacy). So we had lunch last Friday and he told me about what happened to him earlier this month. He was involved in a defensive gun use where he shot and killed his attacker. I was shocked . . .
“I don’t think he missed a day of work, but it explained why he’d been more quiet lately. He gave me the full story. He’s still pretty shaken up by the whole ordeal and has had a hard time dealing with his own actions, nightmares, etc. I know for now my friend does not wish to be identified (particularly until all the legal bits are 100% finalized), but this is definitely a positive example defensive gun use. I’m hoping I can convince him to share his story more with other carry permit holders to help us all think about what happens after you have to use your permit.”
