A business owner in Bakersfield, CA saw an alleged car burglar breaking into his vehicle and decided not to be a victim.

The business owner confronted the suspect and held him at gunpoint.

Several bystanders called police, who took both men into custody when they arrived. The business owner was promptly released and the suspected car burglar was arrested.

Yet another example of a gun being used for self defense where no shots were fired and no one was hurt. Because of this, this story likely won’t be included in most self defense studies or statistics.
