A New Hampshire man said he refused to become a victim when a random stranger jumped in the passenger seat of his car, attempting to steal it.
According to CBS Boston, Paul Jensen, 52, was sitting in his car in the parking lot of a hospital when the carjacker opened the passenger door and jumped in the seat. Jensen had little time to react. His instincts kicked in and he drew his 9mm, pointing it at the man’s head.
“You have to either react, you’re either a victim or you’re not, I chose not to be a victim,” said Jensen.
Jensen held the would-be-thief at gunpoint until the police arrived. With reports of a man with a gun in a hospital parking lot it didn’t take long for the area to go on lockdown until the situation was cleared up.
Jensen said he had no regrets about how he handled the situation.
They said he didn’t have a weapon but I didn’t know that, you don’t have time to think about it,” he told the local news media.
The suspect was arrested and he admitted to trying to steal the car. Watch news video of story below:
This set of circumstances exemplifies the importance of self-protection and how a gun does not always have to be fired in order to save your life and property. This is one of the most common types of self defensive gun uses in which the gun is never fired. These cases are rarely reported by the media because of their lack of “drama” but they happen MUCH more than the anti-gun media outlets want you to believe.
Because a law abiding citizen was armed, the bad guy is behind bars, the concealed carry is safe, and the streets of NH are that much safer from creeps like this.
