Or should I say the “gun safety movement“?
WTSP.com: A Lithia (Florida) man has been charged after he tackled another man Tuesday who had a handgun in a holster — and a permit to carry — at a Wal-Mart.
About 11:58 a.m., deputies responded to the store at 11110 Causeway Blvd. where Clarence Daniels had been taken to the ground by Michael Foster, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
Foster had seen Daniels getting out of his vehicle in the lot with handgun, under his coat and in a holster. Foster followed him into the store and attacked the Daniels, the sheriff’s office said.
The report said Foster did not call 911 until he tackled Daniels.
Once inside the store, Foster approached Daniels from behind, placed him in chokehold and took him down against his will and without permission. A brief struggle ensued. When Foster grabbed the man, he began yelling that Daniels had a gun.
Daniels, 62, has a concealed weapons permit and yelled that fact during the struggle. Both individuals were detained until deputies arrived on scene.
Foster, 43, was taken into custody and charged with battery.
