Good Samaritan Faces Anti-Gun Senselessness After Life-Saving Action

Good Samaritan Faces Anti-Gun Senselessness After Life-Saving Action

We know from Shannon Watts of the Bloomberg-backed gun control group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America that when it comes to a good guy with a gun stopping a bad guy, “This has never happened. Data shows it doesn’t happen.”

Well, it didn’t happen again in Warren, Michigan, on Wednesday. Really, it didn’t. Because this time, it was a good guy stopping a bad gal. 

According to a Fox News article, Didarul Sarder was working as a parking valet supervisor at the General Motors Tech Center in Warren when he witnessed a woman being stabbed by another woman just outside the main entrance of the central office building. The victim, the article states, was imploring bystanders to come to her aid, crying repeatedly, “I’m dying, someone help.”  

And that’s exactly what Sarder did. The 32-year-old concealed carry licensee did not reflect in the presence of an upturned knife but simply sprang into action based on his humanitarian impulses. 

“My natural instinct was to unholster my firearm and I pointed it at her and I told her to drop the knife,” Sarder told a local news outlet. He continued, “It was the right thing to do. Someone is dying in front of you, you’ve got to do something.”

Sarder successfully ended the attack, apparently without firing a shot. The 52-year-old victim, Stephanie Kerr, unfortunately, received multiple stab wounds in the neck, back, and abdomen.  She is reported to be in critical condition at a local hospital. The 32-year-old suspect is also in custody, with ClickOnDetroit.com reporting that she is the daughter of the victim and suffers from mental illness. 

News reports also relate how after the police arrived and the incident was resolved, Sarder was escorted from the GM Tech Center property and told not to return, because he had violated GM’s rule against possessing firearms on the property. Sarder has for 10 years been employed with the valet company that has been at the GM site as a contractor since December. He said he was unaware of GM’s no guns policy.

That decision, fortunately, was later reversed by “higher ups,” and Sader has been reinstated. According to a post on the Facebook page of Warren Mayor Jim Fouts: “I hope to honor and reward this good citizen for being a hero in time of need. Hero's should be rewarded not terminated. Didarul is a resident of Warren and a resident that we can all be proud of!” 

The victim’s son, Matthen Kerr, also weighed in to local news with his gratitude: "I don't know exactly what I'd do without my mom and it's just me and here [sic] here at the moment. I'm just really thankful that he stepped in and saved her."

Despite the ill-treatment he initially received for his heroics, Sader was philosophical. “I would do it all over again,” he told Fox News. “If I could save this woman’s life over a job. I can get another job.”

Gun control advocates attempt to seize the high ground by claiming that they are willing to do “whatever it takes,” even if to save “just one life.”

A life was saved in Warren on Wednesday by a quick-acting good Samaritan with a lawfully carried gun. A son still has his mother. 

But don’t expect Shannon Watts or her like-minded gun prohibitionists to put that one in the win column … or to admit that a good guy (or gal) with a gun is, even could be, a lifesaving blessing.
