Not all Millennials are anti-gun – not by a long shot. In North Carolina this past weekend, a 26-year-old father named Marquel White was leaving a grocery store with his toddler when he was approached by a man later identified as Richard Bradley, age 31.
White attempted to ignore Bradley, however he followed White and his daughter to their car, cursing at him and swinging a knife around. When White tried to get into his car, Bradley slashed at him with the knife, at which point White drew his .45 and shot him once in the abdomen.
By the time police arrived, Bradley was on the deck with what’s described as a non-life threatening wound. He’s been charged with assault. It isn’t clear whether or not the two men knew each other. A knife and a sheath were recovered from the crime scene.
Neither White nor his daughter were physically harmed during this incident.
