Good: He was ready to protect himself
Bad : No concealed weapons permit because of being a felon!By ANA X. CERON Palm Beach Post Staff Writer Tuesday, April 29, 2008
FORT PIERCE — A homeless man is in jail on a charge of possessing a weapon after he allegedly went to a hospital and handed over several weapons, including four knives hidden in the hollow of his prosthetic leg.
Two police officers were dispatched Saturday to Lawnwood Medical Center and Heart Institute regarding a patient with concealed weapons.
When they got there, a police report states, a nurse said he had removed a loaded revolver, 23 rounds of ammunition and four knives from patient Jerry Moody, 64.
Fire-rescue officials had picked up the man from a truck stop. When he arrived at the emergency room, Moody alerted staff that he was armed, the nurse said.
The knives - two pocket knives and two steak knives - were in the hollow of his prosthetic leg, the nurse told officers.
Moody said he was homeless and has been attacked before, police say. He said "he doesn't care what he has to do, he is going to protect himself," the report states.
Because he didn't have a concealed weapons permit and Moody is a convicted felon, he was arrested, police said.

I used to live in Fort Pierce.
I'm not surprised.
Does it really matter where you are in Florida? It's all insane down here. It's why we need good gun laws.
Ft. Pierce-better be armed.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Incredible, I wonder if he clanked while he walked.
