On March 23rd, 2015 not far from our homes in downtown Salt Lake City, a civilian used a concealed carry permit to save the life of an unarmed man who was being attacked by a suspect with a knife.
Nick, the civilian carrying the concealed weapon, drew his weapon and told the suspect to lay on the ground to save the individual being attacked. A few minutes after the suspect was foiled, police arrived at the scene of the incident and calmly handcuffed the suspect for processing.
“I see somebody in need of help it’s just the right thing to do, the wrong thing to do would of been to turn my back and have somebody be stabbed because I didn’t do anything,” said Nick.
