    Was browsing Autoblog for car news and saw this.

    "An employee at the General Motors Tech Center in Warren, MI, was stabbed multiple times with a steak knife today after she was approached by another woman in the lobby of one of the sprawling facility's buildings. The employee is currently listed in critical condition at a local hospital and is undergoing surgery for wounds to her neck, abdomen, and back, Warren Mayor Jim Fouts told The Detroit News.

    The incident occurred around 9:00 a.m. when a female visitor entered the facility and asked for an employee by name. The pair were speaking and then stepped outside, where the alleged assault took place. It was stopped by a valet driver with a concealed pistol license who brandished his weapon, Fouts said. Neither the victim nor her alleged assailant are being identified at this time.

    "Had I been looking, I could have viewed this attack taking place. You just don't expect something like this to take place," Fouts, whose office sits directly across Van Dyke Avenue from the Tech Center, told The News. "It's unprecedented, unexpected, and unbelievable."

    General Motors confirmed to The Detroit Free Press that the alleged attacker is in custody and that the company is cooperating with Warren Police. A full statement on the incident is expected later today."

    I saw this in Google news of all places. I am surprised they would have an article that presents having a CHL and gun in a positive light.

    I noticed it showed up on the Washington Post (via MSN) today. So at least it's getting a little wider distribution.

    When the story first broke it was reported that the valet was escorted off the property and fired for violating GM's Gun Free policy. Updates are now saying that he's still employed because he works for a vendor that contracts to GM.

    "GM officials, however, deny firing Sarder and say in a statement, "Because this is an ongoing investigation we cannot comment. However, we can say GM has not requested the valet be dismissed.To our knowledge the valet remains an employee of the vendor."

    Typical anti logic. Save someones life and be removed from the property rather than thanked. :mad:

    Meh, poor choice of words if you want to be generous. But they forgot "gun toting" and they left in the part about the CPL, so I'm going to count it as a plus.
