“JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Donnie Register has a new reason to be thankful he’s married — police say his wedding band deflected a bullet and probably saved his life.
Two men walked into Register’s shop at The Antique Market on Saturday and asked to see a coin collection, police Sgt. Jeffery Scott said.
When Register retrieved the collection, one of the men pulled a gun and demanded money. A shot was fired as Register threw up his left hand, and his wedding ring deflected the bullet, police said.”
