EAST BREMERTON, WA - A black man was waiting for his girlfriend to get off work at Oh! Gallagher's Sports Pub and Grill late Tuesday when he was insulted and challenged by a young, drunk patron who used racial epithets, witnesses told deputies.

Two of the aggressor's friends joined him and the black man soon found himself in a fight with three men.

A bouncer sent the altercation outside.

The original instigator went to his car to get his pit bull to sic on the black man, who pulled a handgun from his car to use against the dog.

By the time deputies arrived, things had calmed down, the black man was found to have a permit to carry the gun and declined to press charges, deputies reported.

No one was injured and no one was arrested. Note:  What else but a gun would have stopped three racists from attacking a black man? Gun control started from a base of racism. If only people of color would stop and examine the facts, so-called "hate crimes" would be stopped in progress, just like this event was brought to an end. We are glad this citizen rescued himself, but wonder why he didn't press charges...
