Permit holder thwarts robbery, The Independent Tribune, Concord, N.C. 10/09/13

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Gary Spencer was waiting in his truck in the parking lot of a bank, as his wife deposited a check, when he spotted two men just outside the bank struggling over a money bag. One of the men had waited while the other withdrew $5,000 from the bank, and was now using a stun gun to incapacitate his victim and steal the money. Spencer, who along with his wife, are Right-to-Carry permit holders, drew a .380 pistol from his wife’s purse, ran to the site of the attack and confronted the robber. Upon seeing Spencer’s gun, the criminal fled without the cash.

Following the incident, Spencer said to a local media outlet of his actions, “Do you want to help somebody if they’re in need of help, or are you going to turn your head… and act like it’s not going on? I don’t see it as a hero thing. I just see it as me stepping up for somebody who needed a hand.” (The Independent Tribune, Concord, N.C. 10/09/13)
