New details on the Portland concealed carry hero

It seems the crew at EBGC managed to get an interview with Nick Meli, the concealed carry hero from Portland. This article is a little long, but definitely worth it.

This is an incredible story of a concealed carrier who stopped an active shooter and then did everything right following the shoot. A posterboy for the responsible gun owner.

We need to Like, Share, Tweet, Mail, Scream, and Tell everyone about this story. It shows what a single, prepared concealed carrier can do and how quickly an active shooter changes his plan when confronted with force. Colonel Jeff Cooper said it best when he said the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

excellent story, brave young man who followed the rules and halted a potentially far worse incident ... you can't fix crazy, but you can be prepared to deal with it ...
