A Remarkably Fair Look at Tucson's Relationship With Guns

Posted By on Sun, Jan 16, 2011 at 1:29 PM

From the Sacramento Bee:

Mike Harris has similar views. The former Marine Corps drill instructor said he carries a concealed pistol, a habit he picked up after being robbed when he was the owner of several Sizzler steakhouses and frequently carried cash from the day's receipts.

But he considers himself a trained and knowledgeable gun owner.

Harris was at the scene of the shooting because he wanted to visit a friend who works for Giffords. He arrived at the Safeway parking lot just moments after the gunman had been restrained.

Harris immediately began performing CPR on victims. He never thought of drawing his weapon, he said, because others had detained the shooter.

"Afterward, my wife said, 'What would you have done if you'd gotten there earlier?' I would have killed him," Harris said.
