This is dated may 20th 2010 but it’s still a great read and will bring a smile to anyone’s face. This is a reminder that if you have a CCW permit never leaves home without your weapon and if you don’t have one get off your ass and go get one. This marine /pilot name is John Lovell, he is not a house hold name but never the less he is an ex-marine and at 71 he can still hold his own.
Mr. Lovell earned the title TOP GUN at a subway shop when two punks robbed the place. Just after 11pm Mr. Lovell was finishing up dinner when two punks stormed the place and with a gun robbed the cashier. Being the only person in the subway after they cleaned out the register they grabbed Lovell and shoved him in the bathroom; they got his money but they got something else at the same time!
Three shots… all connected…. He shot one of the thieves in the head and chest and the other in the head. Both men were taken to the Broward General Medical Center, where one, Donicio Arrindell, 22, of North Lauderdale died at the scene. The other, 21-year-old Frederick Gadson of Fort Lauderdale died in route to the hospital.
Quoted: ''He was in fear for his life,'' Detective Rettig said, "These criminals ought to realize that most men in their 70's have military backgrounds and aren't intimidated by idiots."
