Concealed Carrier Shoots Alleged Ax-Wielding Attacker

MERCED COUNTY, CALIFORNIA — A California concealed carry permit holder used their weapon to defend themselves against an attacker wielding an ax, according to Fox News. The incident occurred on the property of the permit holder and involved a man who was stuck in the property while brandishing the ax. The permit holder, who has not been named, shot the attacker in response to the perceived threat.

“Deputies determined that the property owner located Larios sitting in his vehicle on the property and was stuck in the mud,” the Facebook post said according to Fox. 

“The property owner then tried to help him get his car unstuck when Larios became angry and grabbed an axe from the trunk of his car. He then began swinging the axe in a threatening way.”

The attacker was transported to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The permit holder was cooperative with law enforcement and is not expected to face charges. The investigation is ongoing, but initial reports indicate that the permit holder acted in self-defense.

This incident highlights the importance of the right to bear arms and the role that firearms can play in protecting individuals from harm. The use of firearms for self-defense is a highly controversial issue in the United States, with advocates arguing that it is a necessary means of protection and opponents citing concerns about safety and the potential for violence.

Regardless of one’s stance on the issue, it is clear that firearms can play a crucial role in protecting individuals in dangerous situations. In this case, the concealed carry permit holder was able to use their weapon to defend themselves against a potentially deadly threat.

It is important to note that using a firearm for self-defense should always be a last resort and that individuals should only use firearms when they perceive an immediate threat to their life or the lives of others. The right to bear arms is a fundamental right protected by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution and should be exercised responsibly.
