People go to bars to relax and unwind every day in America, and the last thing one would want to encounter there is a furious customer getting violent and causing trouble.
But when a customer is angry and gets into argument, things can go south really quickly.
This scenario played out at the Zona Caliente Sports Bar in Arlington, Texas where an irate customer got into an argument with the manager and then pulled a gun and shot and killed him. Another unidentified customer in the restaurant, who was a licensed Texas Concealed Carry holder may have prevented others in the bar from being killed when he used his weapon to stop the irate shooter.

Perez and Jones got into an argument over an unknown issue at one end of the bar. “There was some type of altercation, things being said, and this man pulled out a gun and shot the employee and killed the employee,” Lt. Cook told reporters.
The unidentified restaurant patron is licensed to carry a concealed handgun and will not face any charges in related to his killing the shooter, Cook explained. He was sitting with his wife at the other end of the bar from where the argument took place. “He made the decision to engage the shooter, fearing there would be other loss of life,” he said.
Time and again a bad guy with a weapon is stopped in his tracks by a good guy with a weapon! The truth is, criminals will always be able to get their hands on guns, because they don’t obey laws anyway, but gun control laws are only designed to take guns away from people who actually obey the law.
Thankfully, those who were eating and drinking at the bar that evening were protected by a concealed carry permit individual. Justice was indeed served.
