Constitutional Carry is legally recognized in Alaska, so this law-abiding gun owner wasn't required to have government permission to carry his gun on him. When law-abiding citizens are able to defend themselves, criminals have a much more difficult time finding victims.
Local news reports:
A security incident involving an armed robber at the Anchorage 5th Avenue mall in downtown ended safely Sunday afternoon after another armed man helped detain the suspect, police say.
Police spokeswoman Anita Shell said in a statement Sunday evening that about $1,200 in goods from the robbery's target, the Buckle Clothing Store, were recovered during the arrest of 18-year-old Yan Bangout. Nobody was injured during the incident.
