Polite Society Update: Utah Concealed Carry Holder Kills a Carjacker and Rescues Driver

A carjacker attacked a woman and tried to steal her SUV in Utah. What stood between him and success? An armed bystander:

A brief note this evening on the subject of an armed society being a polite society. In Utah, a man with a concealed carry permit was in the parking lot of a store when he heard the screams of a woman in distress. She was in the process of being dragged from her vehicle by a carjacker when the man intervened. The aforementioned carjacker apparently liked his chances (for some reason) in bringing a fist to a gunfight. It did not end well for him.

Police are hailing a man who shot and killed a would-be carjacker outside a Utah grocery store, saying he did the “right thing” by coming to the aid of the vehicle’s owner.

Investigators say the 31-year-old man with a concealed weapons permit was in Macey’s parking lot in Orem, 45 miles south of Salt Lake City, when he heard a woman’s screams as she was being pulled from her SUV by the suspect.

The early reporting isn’t providing a lot of forensic details, but the Samaritan was packing a 9 mm and the carjacker is currently at room temperature. Rather than being placed under arrest, the still unidentified man is being hailed as a hero by the cops and is not expected to face any charges. What might have happened to the woman had he not been there, ready for action, will remain a subject of speculation.

So the thug was killed and an innocent person’s life was saved, and why? Because there was someone in the area that was able to step up and fight back. See, liberals? Guns are a good thing.
