Criminal Tries to Hold Up an Iraq Vet. That Turns Out to be a Mistake.

The proverbial "the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun" comes to life.

Jon Lewis Alexander is an Iraq veteran currently working in a liquor store in Marionville, MO. A robber asks for money as he attempts to pull a gun, but Alexander pushes the robber’s arm down and draws his own gun. The description below the YouTube video explains that Alexander told the robber to leave before he would “blow his (expletive deleted) head off.”

Am I alone in thinking/hoping that Iraq and Afghanistan veterans turn out to be a subgeneration of heroes for decades to come?
