A group of patrons were making their way into Longhorn Steakhouse in West Palm Beach, Fla., when a man wearing a mask attempted to rob them, while several accomplices waited in a nearby car. One of the patrons, a Right-to-Carry permit holder, drew a gun and shot the criminal, ending the robbery and causing the other robbers to flee. The criminal was taken to a local hospital and is expected to recover. The armed citizen has not been charged.
