Cook Thwarts Goodwill Robbery Try

Tim Patterson has no doubts he would have pulled the trigger. He's glad he didn't have to. But when a woman is being attacked by a man with a knife, Patterson says he'll do what must be done. "If he had not stopped what he was doing," he says, his voice fading. "He came very close to dying. Really, really close." Monday afternoon was another normal day of cooking burgers and fries and hot dogs and Philly cheesesteaks for Tim and Debbie Patterson. Then, about 2 p.m., they heard a scream/Bill Buley, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Is this situation a good argument for carrying weapons?
