Concealed Carrier Saves Texas Deputy’s Life

Posted 02/16/2016 1:22 pm by


A 23-year-old  deputy, Dylan Dorris, has Marine Corps veteran Scott Perkins to thank for saving his life.


Just before 10pm on January 16, deputy Dorris responded to a call about a man driving erratically with a child in the car. After Dorris initiated a traffic stop, the suspect, Kenton Desean Fryer, 32, drove away.


When Dorris caught up with the suspect at a gas station, the suspect assaulted the deputy and attempted to reach for his gun.


During the assault, Dorris was determined to go home at the end of the night, saying to himself, “Stay in the fight. Just keep fighting, keep fighting. Do whatever you can do, just stay alive. You need to go home.”


Scott Perkins, a Marine Corps veteran and licensed concealed carry permit holder, saw the struggle and came to the deputy’s aid. Drawing his firearm, Perkins ordered Fryer to “freeze.”


Fryer fled the scene, but was later arrested with charges including aggravated assault of a public servant, taking an officer’s weapon, and evading arrest.


Deputy Dorris credits Perkins with saving his life, saying, “I’m alive today because of him … There are no words to explain it. He’s such an outstanding citizen. He’s here for our country, our community.”




Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office will be publicly honoring Perkins for his heroic deed and sheriff’s office spokesperson, Sissy Jones commended him saying “had Mr. Perkins not had his concealed gun on him, that suspect would have likely not paid attention to him … This is a situation where being a license to carry holder truly did save a life.”

    I am 100% pro 2nd amendment. in fact I believe it should be law that ALL natural born citizens should be trained in firearms and have a firearm at their home. Despite this, however, I do not believe in assisting pigs in any situation. the citizen with the firearm should have not interfered and let the pig die.

    In Canada deputy Dorris would be eulogized while his killer would be long gone. The Canadian Order of Chiefs of Police strongly support strict gun control to where citizens are left essentially as a one huge victim pool waiting to be harvested. No one (except the cops and a few other entitled few) carries the means with which to defend oneself let alone any other innocent person or family member. It is more profitable to have victims rather than survivors, so come budget time the police can use the victim stats to ask for bigger and better budgets (and the wheel goes round).

    Can’t an ‘open carry’ gun owner save a life too, or do we all have to get permission so they can track who we are all the time? The media NEVER ‘advertises’ on open carry gun owner doing anything… to my knowledge.
