Concealed carry comes with a big responsibility. In defending yourself and your loved ones, you may take someone else’s life (the attacker.) But what happens when the attacker IS a loved one such as what happened in this incident? Would you be prepared to defend yourself and your spouse from your son?
Earlier this week around 5:30 PM, a 21-year-old showed up at his parent’s house in St. Charles Parish, Louisiana wearing a bulletproof vest and was armed with a handgun. He got into an argument with his mother when his father returned home.
The argument escalated to the point where the son drew a handgun and pointed it at his father. It is unclear if the father had a gun on him or retrieved a gun but he drew and fired on his son in self-defense. The son died on the scene.
Apparently, the son had a history of violent behavior and was the “subject of strong psychiatric care.” This is tragic and I can’t imagine with the husband and wife are going through. As a parent myself, I couldn’t imagine having to defend myself against one of my children. But unfortunately dealing with violent family members is an all too common threat. We cover this in more detail in the article below.
