Armed Hero Loses Job, Then Gets It Back

posted on February 12, 2016

A valet at General Motors Technical Center in Warren, Mich., came to the rescue of a fellow employee who was being viciously stabbed in the neck, back and abdomen Wednesday. After hearing the cries of the 52-year-old woman, Darius Sarder, a concealed-carry permit holder, rushed over and drew his firearm, stopping the attack. 

After the incident, however, Sarder said he was fired when someone in authority asked him to leave the premises because he violated the company firearms policy.

“That was absolutely the wrong response to this hero,” Warren Mayor Jim Fouts said in a Facebook statement. “However, that decision was overruled by higher-ups, and he now has his job back. His quick action using a licensed handgun on the attacker undoubtedly saved this woman's life. Had he not legally exercised his Second Amendment rights, this woman would probably not be with us today.”
