Jon Gosselin fired his gun to scare off the paparazzi -- and he's going to get away with it. On Sept. 21, TMZ reported that the reality television star turned waiter took out his handgun and tried to scare off a female photog who followed him home.
"It all went down yesterday in Beckersville, PA when a photog (not ours) followed the reality star home from his new waiter's gig, trying to snap photos of the cabin where Jon lives. The photog fessed up ... she followed him off the main roads and onto dirt roads but [she] assumed it was a public road and not private property," TMZ reported.
Jon Gosselin whipped out his handgun which he was carrying in the back of his pants. He reportedly ran up to the woman's car, yelling at her and then shot the gun as a sort of "warning" for her to stay far, far away... or else. The photog ended up going to the police but it turns out she was at fault. If she had filed a formal report, she would have likely been charged with criminal trespass according to the report.
People seem to be split on the whole Jon Gosselin has a gun thing. Some people think that he had a right to defend his private property if the photog wouldn't leave after being asked (as long as his gun is registered of course). Others feel as though he shouldn't be threatening anyone with a gun -- it's not like his life was in danger.
So, Jon Gosselin has a gun and he's not afraid to use it -- are you surprised? Do you think his ex-wife, Kate, knows about his firearm? Do you think she's now worried about their kids being in danger? Sound off in the comments below!
