Caught on VIDEO: Concealed Handgun License Holder Sees Man Beating a Woman in a Car. Watch His Bold Reaction That Has Others Calling Him a Hero.
Well, the police may say they don’t recommend citizens exposing themselves to harm this way, but there is one woman out there thanking her lucky stars that this man did. This is why the Second Amendment is so important and why concealed carry is necessary. That dirt bag could have easily beaten her to death and everyone would have just kept driving by, minding their own business. But one brave man who was armed, put a stop to it. He’s a hero for doing the right thing – for not putting his safety first and going to the aid of someone who was the victim of a monster.

From The Blaze:
A Texas motorist who’s also a concealed handgun license holder told police he saw a man beating a woman in another car on Friday afternoon, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
So he got out of his car when both vehicles had stopped, pointed his gun at the other driver and forced him out of the vehicle until Southlake police arrived, the Star-Telegram reported.
And the scary standoff was captured on video, KTVT-TV reported.
“It was intense not knowing whether bullets were going to start flying from either side of the street,” Mistina Doland told the station, adding that 911 was quickly called.
Doland’s sister Lindsey Bryant was driving with Doland and shot cellphone video of the standoff, KTVT noted. Soon police arrived, and the video shows the man with the concealed handgun license putting down his gun and putting up his hands as the other driver stood by his door.
But soon authorities figured things out, determining that the man who held the gun on the other driver was trying to help — and police arrested MacMichael Nwaiwu, 28, who is now in jail, KTVT said.
Police haven’t released the name of the concealed handgun license holder, but Doland and Bryant said he’s a hero.
“It’s amazing that in this day in age that people are willing to reach out and help,” Doland told the station.
“We need more people like that,” Bryant told KTVT, adding that “I hope more people see this and are willing to go the extra mile for someone who like this woman, didn’t have a voice and couldn’t speak up for herself.”
The Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office does not believe the witness with a gun broke any state laws, KTVT noted.
Not only is the man courageous, with moral conviction, he has a brain. When the cops showed up, he put his gun down, put his hands up and got on his knees. The cops figured out very quickly that the criminal was the other man – the woman must have been beaten badly and bleeding. Thanks to the sisters who had the good sense to film the whole thing on a phone, there is no doubt who the bad guy is. This was textbook and I am glad the man did not have to shoot the scum, but he was willing to do so. You don’t draw your gun unless you mean to use it. It is our duty to protect ourselves and those who cannot do so for themselves – the police don’t follow you around watching over you. We are the last line of defense for those we love, strangers and ourselves.
