Good Guys: 1 — Car-Jackers: 0

True story in Detroit.

A guy in Detroit stops at a gas station to fill up his Cadillac Escalade.  His girlfriend goes inside to get some snacks or something while her five-year-old daughter stays behind in the SUV.  A would-be carjacker then steps up and shoots the guy while he’s pumping gas, hoping to drive off in the Escalade and the little girl inside.  But the injured Escalade owner has other ideas. 

After being shot, the victim falls to the ground, and from there returns fire with his concealed-carry pistol.  When the smoke clears, the victim is on his feet, and his attacker lays dead.  The victim then has the presence of mind to secure the attacker’s weapon before stumbling into the gas station and calling for help on his cellphone.

The guy is a hero.  Guts, clear thinking, and a concealed pistol saved at least one life and possibly prevented a kidnapping or worse.
