Health Care Worker Fights Back Against Carjacking

Health Care Worker Fights Back Against Carjacking

( – “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” according to NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre. That’s a sentiment shared by Second Amendment advocates all around the country. And in two recent cases, it turned out to be true.

On Monday, January 10, a 32-year-old Philadelphia health care worker was sitting in his car near a residence he was working at when an assailant with a gun pointed it at him. The victim drew his own firearm and fired five shots. He struck the attacker in his thumb, cheek and neck before the criminal ran away. The worker told officers he thought the suspect was going to rob him.

The suspect, an 18-year-old, later showed up at the hospital with gunshot wounds. Officers placed him under arrest and he’s currently in stable condition.

The incident was the second time in a week that a gun owner had to protect themselves in the City of Brotherly Love. A Lyft driver was outside of his car when a man with a shotgun tried to hijack him on January 3. The driver shot the man and another suspect attempted to run him over. The Lyft driver shot at him too. Both suspects were later arrested.

Both incidents show the importance of the Second Amendment – and prove LaPierre right.
