Refuse to be a victim. It’s a theme we see in most of our defensive gun uses here.

According to CBS Boston, Paul Jensen, 52, was sitting in the drivers seat of his car when an unknown man entered the car through the passenger door.

Acting on instinct, and his refuse to be a victim mentality, Jensen drew his concealed handgun and pointed it at the suspect’s head until police arrived.

The suspect was arrested and admitted to trying to steal the car.

When speaking with local media, Jensen said the following,

Jensen, 52, says he has no regrets.

“They said he didn’t have a weapon but I didn’t know that, you don’t have time to think about it,” said Jensen. “You have to either react, you’re either a victim or you’re not, I chose not to be a victim.”

This is another example of a defensive gun use in which no shots were fired, no one was hurt and the bad guy ended up behind bars. This is by far the most common type of defensive gun use. However, due to their innocuous nature, many of these incidents are not reported to police and even fewer are reported by the media.
