Concealed Carry Permit Holder Saves Arkansas Stabbing Victim

posted on April 10, 2017

An Arkansas man with a concealed-carry permit pulled his handgun last Monday night and saved the life of a man who was being attacked with a knife. 

According to television station KATV, the Austin, Ark., man was being attacked with a knife by his brother, and had suffered several lacerations. Seeing the attack, Air Force Reserve Lt. Brandon Teel, a carry permit holder, called the police, pulled his gun, stopped the attack and held the attacker until officers could arrive.

Austin police said the permit holder’s action likely saved the life of the man under attack. “Lt. Teel is a perfect example of a responsible concealed carry permit holder,” said Chief Bill Duerson. “He acted heroically in the face of extreme danger and avoided a tragedy.”
