A woman from retired preacher Bill Willis's church invited him to
take a concealed-carry class with her. Though Willis had never been
particularly interested in firearms, he agreed, obtaining his
permit, purchasing a .22-caliber pistol and practicing with it
regularly. Not long after, Willis' wife, Judith, woke him in the
middle of the night and announced there was an intruder. Willis
spotted the man darting into the bathroom and quickly retrieved his
Walther P22. Police say he warned the suspect three times, "Come out
with your hands up. I have a gun and I will shoot." The man exited
the bathroom and approached Willis, pretending to surrender, then
pulled out a knife and viciously stabbed Willis'arm. Willis shot and
killed the assailant. Deputies have temporarily seized Willis'
pistol as evidence, but he purchased another. "It would be foolish
not to be prepared," he said.
