College student John Erickson parked his scooter and was walking
toward his house when a pit bull charged him in an unprovoked
attack. "All of a sudden the dog grabbed my leg from behind," he

concealed-carry permit holder, was forced to draw his 9 mm pistol
and shoot the delinquent animal. His mother, Lyn, used to oppose her
son's firearm ownership, but after the incident she noted, "Now I'm
saying,'I'm just so thankful he had a gun,' I'm just so thankful
because what would you do?"
