WWII Vet Thwarts Robbery With Cane—And Will Be Packing Heat Next Time

posted on May 6, 2015

96-year-old Arthur Kamberis doesn’t usually take his cane when he walks outside, but it was a good thing that he did on Saturday. While he was walking, a man approached him and began to aggressively try to reach into his pockets for his wallet. Kamberis, who is an NRA member, says that he realized his assailant must not have a firearm and decided to take action. He swung his cane, hitting the man twice before a bystander intervened and chased away the attempted robber. Kamberis is fine, but he says that next time he steps out of the house, he’ll have his cell phone on one hip—and a .357 revolver on the other!
