MN: CCL holder defends against knife after multi-car accident

Someone sent me the link to this article out of Minnesota. It sounds like a four car accident led to some odd behavior by one of the drivers. It ended with him pulling a knife and moving towards a CCL holder that was driving one of the other cars. CCL holder stopped the threat.

It sounds to me like it ended when a good guy with a gun stopped the threat.

I really hope the GG will be okay.

From the article, there is a statement that the CCL was NOT involved in the wreck. That is interesting. We've debated getting involved as a 3rd party where you may not understand all of the facts. Of course the trump card was the knife welder ran at the CCL after being told to stop. A live Tueller drill against an already drawn firearm did not end well for the knife holder.

Doyle, of Ham Lake, told the Star Tribune at the time that he thanked the gunman. “I told him he saved my life and probably a couple other lives. I actually gave him a hug.”
This really annoys me. You never see gunman used as a positive description.

I don't believe it was used as a positive descriptor in this case either.

That's what I mean. Calling him a gunman instead of say, Good Samaritan.
