August 25, 2016

Concealed carry permit holder Dylan DeBoard was awarded a Citizen’s Award of Valor by the Mount Vernon police in Ohio for saving a police officer caught in a dangerous situation.  Corporal Michael Wheeler stated that he was attacked by a homeless crystal meth addict while on duty and was pinned on his back, defenseless. Cpl. Wheeler recounts that the attacker appeared to have a handgun and was reaching for it when DeBoard rounded a corner, holding his firearm and announcing that he had a concealed carry permit. Wheeler credits DeBoard with effectively saving his life. DeBoard’s actions have earned him the Mount Vernon Police Department Citizen’s Award of Valor.
