A convenience store owner in Utah says he has kept a pistol handy for five years for protection.

The first time he had to reach for it was on Monday when a knife wielding man walked into the store and demanded money.

The owner drew his pistol and said, “I pulled out my gun and I said, ‘Just leave your knife here and leave the store.’ And he left.”

The suspect was arrested at a nearby Kentucky Fried Chicken shortly after the attempted robbery.

Yet another example of a defensive gun use that will not be included in most statistics or studies because no shots were fired and no one was killed.
