Let’s skip to the middle of the abc11.com post to get straight to the Defensive Gun Use (DGU) part of the story. “[Sheldon] Dix savagely attacked a mother who was waiting in her car at a nearby church parking lot. When another man saw the attack and tried to intervene, Dix starting beating on the man. The woman in the car then pulled out a handgun and shot at the attacker. ‘The victim in the car happened to be a concealed-permit holder. She had a legal right. She retrieved her firearm and fired off two rounds,’ said Fayetteville Police Lt. Tim Tew.” It’s a damn shame she missed. But someone else did not, only minutes later . . .
Thursday, just before midnight, [Glenn] Tew went to check on a noise in his den, and confronted 21 year old Sheldon Dix as Dix broke through a glass door.
“And I hollered at him, and he proceeded to come charging at me trying to knock me out, we kind of locked horns and fought on the floor.” Tew said.
Tew’s wife heard the commotion and ran to help her husband. She tossed the frying pan to her husband.
“I think my wife hit him in with a metal trash can a couple of times” Tew said. “And once I got the frying pan, I proceeded to give him a good dose of that.” . . .
Glenn Tew hopes he can salvage his favorite frying pan.
“The bottom is a little messed up, but I expect I can hammer it back down,” he said.
It stops being funny when it starts being you. Home carry people, home carry. [h/t J&TT]
