On Friday as my wife and I were heading home from work. A pickup cut me off. I sounded my horn and as I pulled up to red light he pulled around beside me on shoulder and began screaming at me. I just shook my head as he made repeated threats. He then exited his pickup and started telling me to get out. I was unable to leave scene due to traffic. He began kicking my door and attempted to open it. Deciding that I had no choice but to fight I tried to exit the car. As I did he pulled a gun and threatened to kill me and my wife. As I backed off a man from behind him identifying himself as law enforcement ordered him to drop gun and get down.
If it had not been for the police officer no telling how it would have ended. I applied for my concealed carry that night and Saturday purchased a Turuas 24/7 9mm
Never again will I or my family be at the mercy of a person and no chance of defending them or myself. I served 15 years in military (Army infantry) have been deployed 12 times and had seen enough violence for a life time. But I was reminded Friday. We don’t het to decide if a life threatening situation arises we can only decide to be prepared or not
