    Holiday Gift for Lawfully Armed Citizens from Mpls Police/Star Tribune

    Looks like a lawfully armed citizen saved a shopkeeper from a couple of armed robbers. Nice going,Mr. Dosser!

    I don't know which thing I like better, that the MPD spokesman had something nice to say about LACs -OR- that the Star Tribune printed it!

    On Wednesday, police spokesman John Elder called Dosser’s actions “a noble thing. He acted honorably. Did this person possibly save [Ahmed’s] life? Absolutely.”

    Police generally advise people to call 911 rather than try to stop a crime themselves, and on Wednesday, Elder also warned that having a permit to carry a gun doesn’t let someone act as a police officer.

    “The permit system is different, obviously, than having a police officer’s license,” Elder said. “When people get a permit to carry, they are instructed not to intercede into a crime that is occurring. It’s solely for personal protection.”

    That's why the "training" is useless .... IMO
