A Utah store owner bought a gun several years ago but never had to use it. Then last week a would-be robber came into the store brandishing a knife. The store owner pulled out his gun, told the robber to drop his knife and watched him flee.

KSL reported:
“I pulled out my gun and I said, ‘Just leave your knife here and leave the store.’ And he left.”

Guns Saves Lives has more.

A convenience store owner in Utah says he has kept a pistol handy for five years for protection.

The first time he had to reach for it was on Monday when a knife wielding man walked into the store and demanded money.

The owner drew his pistol and said, “I pulled out my gun and I said, ‘Just leave your knife here and leave the store.’ And he left.”

The suspect was arrested at a nearby Kentucky Fried Chicken shortly after the attempted robbery.

Yet another example of a defensive gun use that will not be included in most statistics or studies because no shots were fired and no one was killed.

  1. In completely unrelated news DHS [Department of Horrendous Stupidity] issued a video, urging the citizens who are attacked by a criminal with a gun, to bring a knife to a gun fight defend themselves with scissors.

  2. I love stories with happy endings.

  3. Betcha this gets almost no coverage in the MSM because it doesn’t fit the anti-gun template.

  4. As my young niece would say, “Awesome”.

  5. Great! So the guy gets away, to commit a crime another day. Perhaps next time he will bring a gun.

  6. I’m offended that the store owner was able to defend himself—WITH A GUN!!!

  7. A South Carolina toddler is dead after reportedly mistaking a pink handgun for a toy.

  8. Utah was once an extremely serene conservative White Mormon enclave. Now the Salt Lake City area has been swamped by low IQ “hispanic” legal and illegal immigrants in the last few years and is being transformed into a 3rd world Mexican slum. So, this news report doesn’t surprise me at all. Fortunately, Utah is one of the most Right-wing states in the country still (it won’t be in the future as “hispanics” continue to invade and multiply over the next couple decades…) Every single county in Utah is controlled by Republicans (for now). So, they’re very pro-gun (and pro-knife). So, at least the residents of Utah can defend themselves from the Left’s brown trash base…

  9. “He pulled his gun and said…..” That was the mistake. You don’t pull your gun to chat, you pull it to shoot.

  10. In my town Saturday night a guy shot a man who was assaulting his daughter. It was ruled self defense or self defense of another. But unfortunately he was arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. This probably won’t be on the news either.

    It’s so predictable. Can’t wait until Jim upgrades the comment section. It should weed out the twinks from media mutters et al. Although, it’s very entertaining mocking these twinks.

    irresponsible parents…just like people who let their kids drown in pools, walk out into traffic, play on the balcony, play in the utility cabinet. you are a fool…can i sell you some bogus crap related to climate change? i really need he money

  14. That guy isn’t a transplant from Los Angeles, is he? I remember during the housing bubble years that crime in the SLC area was rising in tune with an influx of people from southern California.
