Attempted Carjacker Learns A Hard Lesson On The Value Of The 2nd Amendment In A City Trying To Ban It

Share this:

Philadelphia was briefly America’s capital city. It’s beautiful, full of rich history, the location where the valiant Founding Fathers wrote and signed the Declaration of Independence, and one of the oldest and most important cities in America.

It’s also a city where a leftist District Attorney is in power, so despite its rich history and incomparable roots, it has turned into just another leftist hellhole where criminals prowl the streets looking for victims.

Fortunately, however, it’s not in a state completely dominated by leftists so some citizens carry guns and can defend themselves from the predations of those criminals, which is just what happened in the Olney section of Philadelphia on the night of June 27th.

That night, a 59-year-old, off-duty corrections officer used his firearm to turn the tables on a carjacker around 11 pm. It was at that time that the man hopped into his Toyota Avalon and, almost before he realized what was going on, a mask and hoodie-clad thug viciously yanked him out of the Toyota and clambered inside, a clear attempt to steal the vehicle. The carjackers was armed.

Evidently fearing for his life after being attacked by the masked, armed thug, the off-duty correctional officer grabbed his gun and opened fire on the suspect, teaching him a lesson in civics with five sizzling pieces of lead. The suspect bolted from the scene after being fired upon.

Police Chief of Philadelphia, Inspector Scott Small, commenting on the incident, said:

“Police officers, within about 20 to 25 minutes, located the Toyota Avalon about a half a mile away in the 4900 block of Bingham Street. That vehicle was found with five bullet holes in it and also a lot of fresh blood inside the driver’s seat, and some on the center console.”

GOOD. Too bad the schmuck wasn’t on the ground, bleeding out, taking the Room Temperature Challenge.

Sounds like the victim didn’t know how to lock his car door.

Sounds like you weren’t there to know what you’re commenting on.

An interesting story but had the armed citizen not been a off-duty correctional officer in the notoriously anti-gun city of Philadelphia he would have been arrested, charged, booked and locked up and his weapon confiscated.

If you took down a carjacker in Australia with a firearm, the Police would arrest you for sure! It is against the law to protect yourself in Oz! At the same time it is illegal to possess or wear a Ballistic or Stab Vest!
