GUNS CAN COME IN HANDY SOMETIMES
Law officers have praised a bank customer who pulled his gun and helped deputies capture a gunman who opened fire during a robbery of a Wachovia branch, killing two tellers and wounding two.

Chris Chappell, who was in the bank Monday morning getting $40 in change on the way to his job in Adger [Alabama], fled the bank when gunshots rang out, drew a gun for which he has a concealed weapon permit, took cover by his sport utility vehicle and alerted deputies who came up.

The gunman, cornered by Chappell and the deputies when he tried to flee the bank with a hostage, stumbled and was shot by Deputy Alan Rhea.

"It's certainly commendable," Jefferson County Sheriff's Sgt. Randy Christian said. "It's obvious he played a key role in keeping the guy there until we could get there. It's a great testament of someone willing to take action."

"He kept him from escaping, and he gave deputies time to get to the scene," Bill Veitch, chief assistant district attorney, told The Birmingham News in its moment-by-moment account of the robbery and arrest.

Countdown until Kathy Shaidle accuses me of thinking this guy should have run away like a little girly sissy baby, in 5, 4, 3, 2...

I think it's great that this gentleman did his civic duty. He was armed -- I repeat, HE WAS ARMED -- and could defend himself, and he did what he thought was right under the circumstances. Good for him.

Although... why did he "take cover"? Everybody knows that when somebody has a gun, what you do is you rush him. "Taking cover," come on. Next time, man up!
