At a time when the media is saturated with whining and complaining, a hero comes into view. His name is James Kilcer, a former Marine who makes a point of being alert to his environment and his circumstances. Recently, he was about to leave a gas station convenience store with his purchases when he heard the door open loudly, and noticed that three people were entering and one had a gun:
In one motion, Kilcer grabbed the gun and without hesitation hit the other suspects with a bag of his store purchases, which he said included two Gatorades, two energy drinks and ‘a snack.’
‘I was actually going to take control of his head and the gun at the same time, and the bag just happened to be heavy and attached to me and it smashed him right in the face, Kilcer said.
