    WISCONSIN’S NEW CONCEALED CARRY LAW (AND A FORMER MARINE) JUST SAVED THIS WOMAN’S LIFE

    Mar. 15, 2013 1:43pm Billy Hallowell
    A West Allis, Wisc., man stumbled upon a dangerous — and potentially deadly — situation while driving home at 4 a.m. on Tuesday. Charlie Blackmore, a Marine Corps veteran, saw a woman on the ground being repeatedly kicked in the head and stomach.
    Blackmore quickly got out of his car and told the male assailant to stop attacking the woman. And that’s when the perpetrator, 44-year-old Kenneth Harris, started charging toward him. Little did Harris know, but Blackmore was carrying a gun.
    “I said ‘stop’ and he starts coming towards me and that’s when I drew on him,” the brave vet told WITI-TV. “He started getting closer and I said ‘get down on the ground.”
    Blackmore then called the police and held his gun on the perpetrator until they arrived. In the mean time, though, Harris apparently kept moving toward him.

    “I mean I’ve already made it up in mind that if he came at me I was going to have to take him down and I told him that,” he continued, recapping the scenario in detail. “I warned him multiple times not to come towards me because he was a big guy and I wasn’t playing around and he didn’t seem like he was playing around.”
    After police arrived and apprehended the suspect, they asked to see Blackmore’s concealed carry permit. He complied, allowing cops to take it out of his wallet while he held up his hands. After they saw that it was legally permissible for him to be carrying a firearm, they took his name and information for the police report.

    Blackmore told WITI-TV that the victim appeared to have a broken nose and that she had a big laceration near her eye. He cited the incident as evidence surrounding why he supports the concealed-carry weapon (CCW) law that Wisconsin put into effect in late 2011.
    The state’s Department of Justice explains: “Wisconsin Act 35 was signed into law on July 8, 2011, and published on July 22, 2011. However, the provisions regarding CCW licenses do not take effect until November 1, 2011.”
    “We do good things. Not all of us are bad or crazy gun nuts,” he said. “There are good people.

    Just another reason why the carry laws need to extend do defense of self and others. Many on here will say that this guy was not within his rights to draw as he interjected himself into a situation where he was not already involved. I disagree and think he was within his moral right and glad he is hailed as a hero and not arrested for breaking some dumb brandishing law.
    Guns.??? What Guns???
