Tuesday, October 1, 1991

Tacoma, Wash., store-owner Larry Ewers knows the importance of being armed. Ewers was in the store when a man armed with a butcher knife threatened him and demanded money. With his free hand, Ewers was able to pull a gun from his apron pocket and shoot his attacker, putting him to flight. Less than a year before, Ewers shot a man who threatened his wife with a gun.
