“Good Samaritan” with a Concealed handgun permit wounds suspect who was shooting at police

Apr 6, 2021 | Defensive Gun Use

Here is yet another instance a civilian with a concealed handgun permit to help police.

Fresno, CA, March 24, 2020 

. . . Officers tried to pull over the car, but the driver refused to stop and sped off. The driver led police on a short chase and ended up crashing near Valeria and Grant.

After the crash, the driver hopped out of the car with a pump shotgun. He then reportedly aimed it at the officers and began firing at them. After firing a couple of rounds, he then turned around and started to run away from officers.

During this time, a good Samaritan was walking down the street and spotted the guy running toward him with a shotgun. That good Samaritan turned out to be a CCW holder and pulled out his gun to defend himself. He fired one time at the suspect, making him fall to the ground. . . .

    Most folks tend to believe that carrying a handgun legally anywhere in California is illegal. But most of the counties in the state will issue Mother May I Cards to law abiding citizens upon appliication. This is particlualry true of almost the whole of the Central Valley. Dirtbags like this perp don’t bother to know the laws, they just act like they are above the law.

    Thanksful for those parts of California where a fair number of the genral public legally go about their daily business armed. is the sort of Gun Control we need nationwide.
