An Oregon open carrier stopped an armed robbery suspect who demanded money at knife point. Out for a stroll with his girl, Jason Rorex ran into someone who’d inadvertently brought a knife to a gunfight. As kezi.com reports, when a miscreant demanded Rorex’s money,
He said he flashed his gun at the suspect who then put the knife in his pocket and walked away.
“And then I was just relieved like Katie was … that I had my pistol with me so that I knew he couldn’t do anything at that point,” added Rorex.
He said his date then called the police.
The would-be stick-up man was arrested shortly thereafter. In an interview with gatewaypundit.com Rorex says he was carrying a Smith & Wesson Bodyguard.
Rorex pulled out his .380 Smith & Wesson Bodyguard, and the wannabe thief took off running. The police were called, and they quickly apprehended Adolfo Rodriguez. Rodriguez was booked on charges of 1st degree robbery and unlawful use of a weapon. …
I did have to draw my firearm and aim it at the armed attacker. He immediately stopped his attack, and was arrested minutes later.
As Gateway Pundit notes,
Organizations such as Bloomberg’s Everytown For Gun Safety do not consider this to be a defensive use of a gun, since no rounds were fired and no one was shot or killed. However, everyone in the rational, sane world, would consider this to be a defensive use of a gun. Everytown and their affiliated Moms Demand Action have also pushed for gun bans in parks, thus opening up places like this for criminals to have free reign over unarmed victims.
