Store clerk Nicole Tucker, 21, first noticed the man wandering
around Tucker's Market around 4 p.m. when the store was very busy.
He'd said he was looking for a friend. An hour later, when Tucker
was alone in the store, the man returned. "I was by myself the
second time," she said. "He confronted me about money," he said,
'Give me your money or I'll blow your brains out.'" The man acted as
though he had a gun in his pocket. As he came around the counter
toward her, his view was momentarily obstructed and Tucker used that
to her advantage. She grabbed the gun kept in the store, which
stopped the man in his tracks. "He must have seen me with it [the
gun] because he took off and ran back out the door. I followed him
... I pointed the gun at him, but I never fired," she explained.
Police were on the scene within 30 seconds, but the suspect remained
at large. Tucker's coworker, Doris Clark, praised Tuckers actions.
"The only reason he didn't get anything was that when he came around
the corner, he was facing a gun," Clark said. "She was a very brave
young lady, and I compliment her very much for her bravery."

TELL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO OPPOSE “UNIVERSAL” BACKGROUND CHECK BILLS
Recently two bills were introduced in Congress to impose so-called "universal" background checks. The bills,H.R. 8andS. 42, are being misleadingly described as simply requiring background checks on all sales of firearms, but this is just a small part of what these overbroad pieces of legislation would do.
