OCer Thwarts Robbery in NOLA.

The male victim, who was carrying his own firearm in plain view in a holster around his waist, removed his weapon and fired it in the direction of the robbers.
Michael Kennedy, the attorney for the victims, confirmed that the man was escorting a woman to her car when they were held up. He said the man owns a registered handgun that he carries legally and openly on occasion.
Except for the attorney saying we have registered weapons here, which we don't, it's not a bad article.

I'm suspicious of this story. Everyone knows that only heavily-armed SWAT teams and do-gooder legislators can stop violent crime.

Is this man in this story even allowed to shoot back without a no-knock warrant?

Holster around the waist?

The male "victim" was attempting to kidnap the woman and the three youths were attempting to rescue her.....NOLAPD has gits it all wrong.
