Yesterday, Jon Gosselin became the latest victim of those nasty paparazzi, as one of them attempted to snap some photos of his cabin in the woods. No worries for the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star though, as he whipped out his gun and scared the photographer away with a warning shot. Now, Gosselin says he is not sorry he did so, as he takes his family’s safety and privacy very seriously!
Jon Gosselin is definitely a take no nonsense kind of guy…at least when it comes to his family and his privacy. After recently scaring away a female photographer by firing a shot from his gun, Gosselin gave us the impression that he would do it again if he needed to. Speaking to TMZ after the incident made headlines, Gosselin says that the photographer was given numerous warnings by him to get off of his property, so when she didn’t listen, yes, he fired his gun.
“I am licensed to carry a concealed handgun, which I withdrew and used to fire a warning shot. It is well within my rights under Pennsylvania law when someone is trespassing on private property,” Gosselin told the site. And he is 100% correct, as the police warned the woman that if she filed a report, they would have to charge her with trespassing. Since the incident, Gosselin has decided not to press charges against her for trespassing, explaining: “The message that I take my family’s privacy seriously was sent loud and clear. I trust that she will respect that in the future.”
We know Jon has been getting a lot of bad press these days, but we’ve got to him kudos for standing up to these annoying people. Think about it – if it was your family, wouldn’t you do the same?
