WATCH: Keene man films himself drawing gun in self-defense after argument

KEENE - Christopher Cantwell of Keene is a blogger and talk show host who often records police and other incidents around the city.

He also openly carries a handgun on his hip.

This weekend, for the first time, he found himself drawing his weapon at someone he felt was threatening his safety.

The whole thing is caught on camera. Cantwell's video has gone viral with more than 500 thousand views on YouTube. DISCLAIMER: There is graphic language throughout the video.

Cantwell says he started recording to keep anyone from getting hurt when he heard two women crying and yelling at a man.

The three people he was recording got angry and told him to stop. When he wouldn't they charged at him.

Cantwell ran, told them to stay away, and warned them he had a gun.

When they continued at him he pulled out his gun and continued to tell them to stay away.

Police arrived and took control of the situation.

No one was injured or charged.
