Oregon Concealed Carrier Stops Armed Robbery

posted on July 4, 2016

An Oregon man used his legally carried handgun to stop an armed robber late last week.

According to local media reports, Jason Rorex was on a date with his girlfriend in a local park when another man jumped out with a knife and demanded money. In response, Rorex pulled his Smith & Wesson Bodyguard pistol, sending the wannabe thief fleeing.

“On Sunday my girlfriend and [I] were walking in a busy park, midday, when a person asked us for money,” Rorex wrote on his Facebook page later that day. “I said we do not give money out. He then pulled a knife on us and began to rush us from about seven feet away. I luckily had a firearm with me and was fortunate enough to resolve the situation without a shot being fired. I did have to draw my firearm and aim it at the armed attacker. He immediately stopped his attack, and was arrested minutes later. I feel this story speaks to the safety and reliability a firearm offers for self defense …”
