    It's one of those life experiences that change a person.
    Then he might have been killed in a fight. Some situations just suck, no matter who you are.

    Be a good guy: check for friends and foes. Serve each accordingly. Make sure the young lady gets power, lights, and mobile or drive or walk her back to the store or home, etc.
    Thank you for taking some responsibility for the safety of your son, and thanks for posting this.

    I'd be speaking with a lawyer as well on that one given his age. There might be some very relevant age requirement laws regarding an 18 y/o in possession of a handgun. An ambitious DA may try to fry someone who tries to jump the curve by 5 years.

    Carjacking In a Parking Lot

    It seems to me that once you get to vehicle, and manage to get inside said vehicle, that locking the doors and inserting key in ignition and putting car in gear and driving off is a good way to prevent a carjacking in a Parking Lot.

    It seems to me that the female in this thread was "busy" once she got into her vehicle. Another person managed to get into his vehicle and drive off at the same time. Why didn't she?

    No, I'm not blaming the victim here. I'm just pointing out a way to reduce your odds of being a carjack victim.
