The fact that the police shook the permit holder’s hand says it all. Apparently this is the second time that the permit holder has used his gun in self defense. As the TV anchorwoman says, the permit holder certainly doesn’t plan on becoming a victim any time soon. In this case the permit holder was black and the criminal was white. From WSB-TV, Channel 2 in Atlanta:
Hashim Fannin, the car owner, says the attempted carjacking occurred just after he had pulled into a parking spot at the Family Dollar on Marietta Boulevard in northwest Atlanta earlier this month.
Fannin says the man slipped into the passenger’s seat when his doors automatically unlocked.
“He told me, ‘You know what this is,’” Fannin said. That is when Fannin says he pulled his gun out. . . .
When police arrived, you can see Fannin wave them over, and put his gun down. The police officer shakes his hand, before putting the suspect in handcuffs. . . .
