“Fourth-year Tulane Medical School student Peter Gold was driving on Magazine Street at 4 a.m. Friday when he spotted a woman being carried against her will to a nearby car on St. Mary Street,” the [New Orleans] advocate.com reports. “He backed up and turned against traffic on St. Mary, pulling up to the woman — by now crumpled on the sidewalk — and rushed to her aid, cellphone in hand. As he crouched at her side, the man who had been carrying her moments before jumped out of a light-colored sport utility vehicle with a semi-automatic pistol and pointed it at Gold’s face. He pulled the trigger, but . . .

the gun jammed.

This might be a good time to remind readers that domestic disputes are incredibly dangerous. The old myth of cops circling the block a few times before rocking-up to a domestic dispute? True story. So, while the “damsel in distress” stimulus might trigger your “white knight” impulse, be very careful before interceding. Especially if the bad guy is still on the scene. To wit . . .

Lowering the weapon, he shot Gold in the stomach.

Gold fell to the ground, wincing, and the man pointed the gun at his head a second time and pulled the trigger.

The gun jammed again.

Twice more, the assailant tried to shoot Gold in the head. Each time, the gun jammed, and the man glanced furtively over his shoulder, shaking the malfunctioning weapon.

Finally, he gave up, jumped in his vehicle and sped away, leaving the gut-shot good Samaritan and the woman the man had tried to abduct behind him on the sidewalk.

What IS that thing? Anyway, Gold is expected to make a full recovery. And you are expected to carry wherever you can, maintain situational awareness, refrain from jumping in where angels fear to tread and remember that it’s better to be lucky than smart.
