When a youth allegedly pulled a knife on two women one of
whom was pregnant in Jamestown, N.Y., and threatened to cut them,
neighbor Jeffery Moore became alarmed and decided to act. After
going outside his house to investigate the ruckus, Moore returned to
his house, instructed his wife to call police and retrieved his
licensed handgun. Moore reported that when he went back outside he
heard the youth say, "I am going to cut you like a pig. I'm going to
slice you up." He replied, "Step away ... I have a gun. Get down on
your knees and keep your hands where I can see them." Police arrived
within a minute to find the neutralized attacker. "If I had not
intervened, I don't know if they would have come out of this
unscathed," said Moore regarding the women.
