BAMF of the year

I love how the woman in the Security shirt walks out when the gun walks in (at the 2 second mark).

St. Paul bouncer who stopped gunman among police honorees

When a man holding a gun came to the door of the St. Paul bar where Eric Wasson is a security guard, Wasson was determined not to let the man get past him.

Wasson tried to defuse the situation by smiling at the man and saying, "Hey, what's going on?" He also told the man to calm down.

The man told Wasson to move and raised his gun, Wasson recalled.

Wasson worried about the more than 150 people inside Johnny Baby's on University Avenue, and he rushed the man, whose gun went off twice as they struggled. No one was struck.

"God is good," Wasson said with a smile after St. Paul Police Chief Thomas Smith presented him Wednesday with the highest award he can give a citizen, the Chief's Award for Valor.
