Daily Shooter: Stabbing Halted by Concealed Carrier


From wcfcourier.com

CEDAR FALLS  -- A man with a permit to carry a firearm detained a Cedar Falls man when he started stabbing people at his apartment building last month, according to authorities.

According to police, Adam Scott Jacobsen had stabbed fellow tenant Jeffrey Miller 24 times and apartment manager Denice Bennett eight times at University Avenue Studios apartments before Daniel Williams drew his firearm.

“He pulled the gun and ordered him to lie on the ground,” said Chief Jeff Olson with the Cedar Falls Police Department. He said Jacobsen complied and remained there until police arrived.

“Before police got there, he holstered his gun,” Olson said.
Olson said he didn’t know if Jacobsen would have continued his attack without Williams’s intervention.

Opinion:

Once again, the gun saves the day.  Attempts to murder two, possibly more people, was halted when a man with a gun stopped another man from stabbing people.  Don’t bring a knife to a gun fight?  True.  Also, don’t leave your gun at home when someone might attack you with a knife.
