CCW Holder Foils Bank Robbery

The teller activated a silent alarm while filling a bag with $1 bills. Then the criminal claiming to have a bomb demanded "bands of 50s and 100s."

Another bank teller alerted Nabil Fawzi, a long time customer, who was standing in line. Nabil Fawzi, a former soldier in the Lebanese army, took matters into his own hands.



On July 20, 2006, Michigan passed the Castle Doctrine Law which states that a citizen has the right to defend themselves, with lethal force if necessary, if they are in a place they have a legal right to be, and they reasonably feel their life or the life of a loved on is in jeopardy.

Except that carrying in a bank is against federal law.

Not that I'd hold that against him if I was on the jury.

Good man!

WRONG!

You are wrong on this. If you want to try to say otherwise, cite the code. There is no such law except in your imagination.

Musn't give the prolese the idea they don't need the government to hold their hand at all times.

Clearly, without several years of thorough training in the Lebanese army, he would have been in the fetal position on the floor, rocking back and forth. He would never have had the presence of mind to take out his pistol, point it at the man, and say, "You're not robbing this bank." Twice. And tell the man to sit down. Only police officers and ex-military personnel have that kind of amazing skill.

I carry at the bank all the time. Perfectly legal in Free America.

Actually, here in Montana, carrying concealed inside a bank is indeed against state law (45-8-328, MCA, for those wanting chapter and verse). However, there's no such stated law against carrying openly; still, that would be in violation of city ordinances here. I guess you'd have to hope for a sympathetic grand jury.
