Even though Hickory, N.C., convenience store clerk Fred
Hayes risked his job to discreetly carry a .25-cal. handgun at work,
the decision likely extended his life. A customer attacked the
concealed carry permit holder with a knife one morning and demanded
money. When the store's manager got into the scuffle, Hayes, who had

getaway car's license number and hitting an emergency signal,
summoning police. A wounded man was later charged with the crime at
a nearby hospital.
