A valet who works at the General Motors Technical Center helped plant security forces apprehend a stabbing suspect before police arrived. A woman stopped by the Warren, Mich., business, checked in at the visitor's desk and asked to see a specific employee. When the worker arrived, she and the visitor talked and then stepped outside the lobby. There, the visitor pulled out a steak knife and started stabbing the employee. A valet, with a permit to carry, pulled his concealed handgun and ordered the assailant to stop. GM security officers then arrived and held the suspect for police.(The Macomb Daily, Macomb, Mich., 2/11/16)
This month's posting reflects an example from "studies [which] indicate that firearms are used more than 2 million times a year for personal protection, and that the presence of a firearm, without a shot being fired, prevents crime in many instances. Shooting usually can be justified only where crime constitutes an immediate, imminent threat to life, limb, or in some cases, property."
