HERO ALERT: Good guy with a gun stops kidnapping
These stories of these citizens who step in to save lives when the cops are too far away don’t get noticed nearly as much. This man, a hero citizen, prevented a little boy from being kidnapped.
“He was a very big dude, and I’m not a menacing person by any means,” Pearson said. “I don’t think I could have physically stopped the guy. It would have been super ugly if it was just me versus him.”
Fortunately, Pearson had a trump card — a Heckler & Koch VP9 pistol legally resting on his right hip.
“I carry a concealed firearm everywhere I go,” Pearson said. “I lifted up my shirt and put my hand on my gun.”
