Ohio Concealed Firearm Advocate Shoots Boyfriend In Self-Defense

posted on May 12, 2017

On the way to Sears to buy biodegradable toilet paper, everything went to pot for Jordana Esses.

On Monday, Esses was heading to the Dayton Mall with her on-again/off-again boyfriend Brenton Boudreau when a disagreement turned contentious—then physical. Police tell Dayton Daily News that Esses was forced to grab her pistol and fire at Bourdreau, hitting him twice in the leg. Boudreau, who left the hospital against doctor’s orders after treatment, may face assault and felony kidnapping charges.

Esses recently appeared on television in South Carolina as a concealed-carry advocate, speaking to the importance of CCW classes. "Each state has individual laws, so you have to know those laws, and you have to know them to protect yourself and others," she said. "Owning a gun (is) not a decision to be taken lightly, because if you have a gun you have to be able to use it if need be."
