 A robbery at Jacksonville, FL Walmart forced shoppers resulted in another shining example of licensed gun owners defending themselves and preventing a potential tragedy. 

Police said Christopher Hill ran out to the parking lot after ripping an entire Walmart cash register off the counter, but then he ran into trouble in the form of Army veteran Michael Reardon.

Hill approached Reardon, who was sitting in a pickup truck in front of Supercuts hair salon, and pulled a knife on him, cutting Reardon on the hands and legs.

“After I started blocking his cuts with the knife, I called her, because she was walking away; called her back,” Reardon said of alerting his wife to the attack. “At the time when I called her, I reached in between my glove box and my console, between my seats, reached down and got my weapon and brandished it for him. He was like, ‘Don’t shoot me.’ I was like, ‘Then get out of here.’”
