The Sun-Sentinel, Fort Lauderdale, FL, 5/8/94

Monday, August 1, 1994

West Palm Beach, Florida, jewelry store owner Art Samuels was on his way to lunch when he noticed a badly bleeding man rushing out of a store. Samuels ran to the aid of the victim, and a few seconds later an assailant exited the store swinging a pair of nunchakus. "He lunged and came toward me," Samuels said. "I pulled out my gun." A retired U.S. Navy commander, Samuels has a concealed weapons permit for his .40 Glock with a laser sight. Just the sight of it was enough to make the criminal hit the deck, where he stayed until police arrived.
