Amazing. Thankfully the Marine will be alright.
I'm glad the cretins were caught and hope they will be going away for a very long time.

A U.S. Marine officer has told the incredible story of how he survived a street robbery by plugging bullet holes in his body with his fingers.
Lieutenant Colonel Karl Trenker, 29, of Miramar, Florida, was shot three times as he confronted two men who had stolen a gold chain from him.
He said he used his battlefield training from Afghanistan and Iraq to stem blood from chest wounds by shoving his finger into the gaping wound.

Haven't read the article yet but, a 29 year old Lieutenant Colonel? Either that's an amazing jump through the ranks or a typo. Lol.

That sounds about right. Even though some one who is 25 is and old man in the Corps.

How does "strict gun control" help stop criminals from shooting innocent people?
By controling your weapon to stop your assailant of course. By "strict gun control" he must mean dead on, steady aim.

']Thank heaven he was saved from that heinous crime. He could have been killed at the very moment said:
