    Dallas CHL Holder Does Good

    Good news story to end the day. The punchline is that a CHL holder intervened in a robbery of a person that happened right by her. No one was hurt, and police caught the bad guy later.

    Big thumbs up for a positive CHL story on TV, even if it is just the local news.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Go Big D! I'm glad to see the local news reporting a positive story on the use of a handgun to prevent a crime. Proud to live in Dallas!

    This lady just had a "feeling" she should carry her gun tonight. I hope she now has that feeling ALL the time.

    As TV Stations go Channel 8 is mostly Pro 2nd Amendment. Their Lead Anchor Gloria Compos, who just retired, has her CHL. She's done 2nd A stories several times. One of my Nieces works at the Station and is good friends with her. They both have their CHL's and many of the Ch 8 Employees I'm told have theirs too!

    Good for this Woman willing to stand up to an unknown threat! Hard to believe that in this day and age and in Texas even, a Bad Guy is willing to risk some extra holes with nothing more than a BB Gun.
    Most of us in Texas are Armed. You'd think they would figure that out. But, since this is downtown Dallas I guess the picking are more in their favor.

    I want me some of that women's intuition stuff she was talking about. I guess we men don't get any.

    Good for her! Most criminals are looking for the easy target....not looking to BE the target.

    Good to hear. The wife and I will be headed back that way in a couple of weeks for a visit of in laws and out laws from Dallas to Houston and a look-see to determine if there is any chance we can find something affordable in a 60 mile radius around Kerrville to settle a desire to go back "home".
