While Demanding Moms head Shannon Watts has said that good guys with guns never stop violent criminals, she is actually proven wrong many times each day. Oct. 17 was certainly no exception to that rule, as a man with a concealed-carry permit and a gun stopped what might have turned into a mass stabbing in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
According to local media, Adam Scott Jacobsen had stabbed fellow tenant Jeffrey Miller 24 times and apartment manager Denice Bennett eight times when concealed-carry permit holder Daniel Williams pulled his gun and stopped the attack, possibly saving many other potential victims.
“He pulled the gun and ordered him to lie on the ground,” Cedar Falls Police Chief Jeff Olson told The Courier. Jacobsen complied and remained there until police arrived. “Before police got there, he holstered his gun,” Olson added.
Jacobson has been charged with two counts of attempted murder.
