Thank God for the Second Amendment, Episode #4,109,382,309,763.
A concealed weapons permit holder saved taxpayers the cost of a trial by taking out a carjacker in Orem, Utah.
Our hero, a 31-year-old man, was parked near a woman at a grocery store on Saturday morning when he overheard her screams. The carjacker was pulling the woman out of her Mercedes SUV.
The man ran to her aid. According to one report, the suspect lunged at the hero in an attempt to grab his weapon. That’s when the thug found himself on the business end of that gun.
The gun was fired, and a single round hit the man in the chest.
What? No double-tap?
Paramedics tried to save the carjacker (for some reason), but it was too late. He died at a hospital a little later.
No one else was injured.
One source in the police department said that he doesn’t think that the shooter will face charges.
“He’s trying to assist this lady whose car is being stolen. He was fighting with her, he was trying to protect her. Then at the point the suspect comes to him and he’s trying to take the gun from him, then he’s trying to protect himself,” he said.
