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.

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.

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