Street in Greenwich Village New York City where car was stolen

Freddy’s Note:
All of us that carry guns on a daily basis are asked the question many times.  The question is why do you carry a gun to: Blank.  I have been asked… You don’t need a gun to go:

  • Food Shopping
  • the Mall
  • to Church
  • Out to Dinner
  • Outside doing yard work on your own property
  • to Doctor’s Office
  • to Walmart
  • and every other place in the world except the Post Office and a Court House (You can’t carry there)

This series of continuing posts demonstrates the need to carry a gun can arise anywhere that you go. And it is always better to be prepared.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)

A Greenwich Village man clearing snow away from his truck Friday morning was carjacked in broad daylight, police announced.

The snow had stopped falling and it was dead quiet on Christopher Street when the incident occurred just after 9 a.m. There were much fewer people out than on a normal weekday because of the snow.

According to police, a building superintendent was shoveling snow next to his blue Dodge Ram when a man in his 20s appeared and pulled out a gun. He drove off without firing a shot, police said.

The super had the car running when the suspect approached, police said.

A man whose salon window faces the crime scene said he didn’t hear anything, Silverman reported.

“We keep the doors locked. I was sitting in here counting money, ironically enough,” Scott Smith said.

“That’s incredibly concerning,” said Christopher Street resident Adam Masry. “Even in the harshest of weather, I guess people are brazen.”

Police have been circling the historic West Village blocks, but have not yet tracked down the truck or the suspect on a day when it’s not easy to get anywhere fast.
