I missed it but my wife told me that driver of the attempted carjacking had a GFL.

Sometimes my wife thinks I'm crazy for carring a gun everywhere I go. But it's stories like this one that give her a dose of reality. This one definitely hit home...we're looking at houses in Smyrna and she frequently shops at Publix.

Yea

My wife will :roll: if she sees me put it on, but if something starts happening the first words out of her mouth "Are you armed?"

Notice the small part where the man in the car fired on the suspect.
I guess that is why I cannot be a journalist or editor. Had I written it, the article's headline would have looked like this:

Local Smyrna Hero Bravely Saves His Two Small Children By Shooting at Carjacking Suspect

:D

The AJC has more details this morning. As reported, the guy tried to carjack a Chevrolet Suburban containing two children in an apartment complex. The carjacker shot at the vehicle's owner, who returned fire. Nobody was shot.

Was the cars owner a GFL holder? If so this would be a great example of a GFL holder defending himself, his kids and his property.

A bystander on the news the other day was saying that the man with kids did the wrong thing by pulling a gun and shooting at the would-be car jacker because he had his kids in the car. The woman said that he shouldn't have defended himself beacuse his kids might have been harmed.
It's good that the appeasement crowd has been heard from on this matter.

Yes, let's negotiate with the person that wants to do us and anyone else harm. That always turns out so well. :shakehead:

Negotiate?

"He should have begged the carjacker to leave them alone."

These sorts of people may sit on your criminal or civil jury one day. This was one reason why inserting immunity into the self defense law was such a big deal.
