Concealed Carrier Deemed Hero! Stops Stabbing in the Street

An Arkanas man, Brandon Teel , was simply heading home from work when he noticed a fight. He realize just how bad the fight was, and quickly knew he had to intervene. His intervention very well may have been what saved Darren Terry’s life.

Darren and his brother, Chris Terry, go into an argument and began fighting. Christ pulled out a knife and began to stab Darren. A perfect Cain and Abel scenario. Darren suffered from 3 stab wounds, but if Teel hadn’t intervened, he may have suffered much more than that.

U.S. Air Force Lt. Brandon Teel, drew his firearm and held it on Chris Terry until police arrived, effectively stopping the potentially deadly assault.

As a trained member of the US Military and a concealed carry permit holder, Teel knew exactly the right thing to do.

This is what a responsible concealed carrier looks like, and Teel, whether he believes so or not, is the definition of a hero.

Police Chief, Bill Duerson, stated, “Lt. Teel’s actions on April 3rd most definitely saved a life. Lt. Teel is a perfect example of a responsible concealed carry permit holder. He acted heroically in the face of extreme danger and avoided a tragedy.”

A real hero is a person who sees a scenario where courage is needed, and still reacts, even if he is scared or unsure of the outcome. Lt. Teel is a real hero.
