71-year-old retired Marine, the 2nd Amendment & the right to carry
Sent to me by a friend. Thanks Ronnie!
71-year-old retired Marine, the 2nd Amendment & the right to carry.
"Police investigate the scene."
John Lovell, a 71-year-old retired Marine who opened fire on two robbers at a Plantation Florida sub shop late Wednesday, killing one and critically wounding the other, is described as a former pilot for two presidents.
Said a friend, ``He doesn't drink, he doesn't smoke, he works out everyday.'' Lovell was a man of action Wednesday night.
According to Plantation police, two masked gunmen came into the Subway at 1949 N. Pine Rd. just after 11 p.m. There was a lone diner -- Lovell, who was finishing his meal.
After robbing the cashier, the two men attempted to shove Lovell into a bathroom where he knew he would be executed.
They got his money but then Lovell pulled his handgun, opened fire, shooting one of the thieves in the head and chest and the other in the head.
When police arrived, they found one of the men in the shop. K-9 units found the other in the bushes of a nearby business.
They also found cash strewn around the front of the sandwich shop.
Both men were taken to Broward General Medical Center, where one, Donicio Arrindell, 22, of North Lauderdale died.
The other, 21-year-old Frederick Gadson of Fort Lauderdale is in critical but stable condition.
White, a longtime friend of Lovell, was not surprised to hear what happened. ''He'd give you the shirt off his back and he'd be mad if someone tried to take the shirt off your back,'' he said.
White said Lovell worked as a pilot for the Marines, flying former Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson.
He later worked as a pilot for Pan Am and Delta.
He is not expected to be charged, authorities said. ''He was in fear for his life,'' Det. Rettig said.
These criminals ought to realize that most men in their 70's have military backgrounds and aren't intimidated by idiots.
Something tells me this old Marine wasn't "in fear" even though his life was definitely at risk. Just waiting. And he should not be charged IMO, more like rewarded!
The only thing he could be charged with is partaking in an unfair fight.
One 71 year young Marine against two punks.
Two heads and one center body mass shot = good shooting!
Even better would have been to double tap them both.
That'll teach them to get between a Marine and his meal.
If not for the U.S. Military, I would have completely lost hope in America a
long time ago.
Don't you just love a story with a happy ending?

I just knew it was going to end up with him in jail with lawsuits against him because of the way things go these days. Sad when that is the outcome you expect for defending yourself. That is awesome to hear. Nice story.

Considering that alot of these robbers shoot people on their way out after robbing them (for no reason at all) I think that it was justified. There's no way he could know what they were going to do next.
