OF THE PEOPLE: Gun law turns 1 year old
David Haagensen drives to work with his gun on the seat next to him, and he says it came in handy one night a few weeks ago.
Haagensen, attending one of two competing events Wednesday that commemorated the passage of the state's new gun law, said he foiled an attempted carjacking as he was on his way to work the late shift at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis.
"I pointed it at his head, because he was trying to open my locked door, and he was pointing a gun at me,'' he said. "He ran away. I drove to work and called the cops.''
