Retired utility worker Joe Mergerle was walking in a Kenton
County, Kentucky, park one morning when a man approached him, drew a
pistol and demanded money. Fortunately, Mergerle was one of 51,000
Kentucky residents who held a firearms carry permit under a
three-year-old state law allowing concealed carry. The law along
with Mergerle's .25-cal. pistol may well have spared his life.
Mergerle, fearing for his safety, drew the gun and shot his attacker
twice, sending him to the hospital in critical condition. The
would-be mugger is facing an attempted robbery charge and may also
be charged with attempted murder. Sheriff Charles Korzenborn said of
the incident, "People have not only a right but a responsibility to
take care of themselves."
