Jon Gosselin pulled a gun on a photographer who followed him home in Pennsylvania on Friday and even fired a warning shot - by his own admission.

The crazy incident happened in Beckersville, Pa., when a photographer followed him from his job waiting tables to the log cabin where Jon lives.

The paparazzo admits that she followed Jon off the main roads and onto dirt roads, but assumed it was still a public road and not private property.

Not the case.

According to TMZ, she started taking photos of Jon Gosselin and he came at her, pulled a gun out of the back of his pants and yelled at her for trespassing.

He then fired off a warning shot.

The photographer peaced out immediately after that, but says Jon followed her until she got back on the main road. He declined to give chase further.

She went to the police station to file a report, but ultimately did not do so as she likely would have ended up charged with criminal trespass as a result.

Jon Gosselin later said he has no apology for firing the warning shot, saying he was within his legal rights to defend his private property from trespassers.

"I am licensed to carry a concealed handgun, which I withdrew," Jon says.

He admits he used it "to fire a warning shot AWAY from the paparazzi. It is well within my rights under Pennsylvania law when someone is trespassing on private property."

Gosselin says he is certain police would back him up and would take his side on the issues of trespassing and a person's right to protect their property.

Nevertheless ... Jon Gosselin is strapped. This is both surprising and a little scary. Definitely did the job, though, as far as making his point in this case.

Good for him. It's about time more celebrities do this. They were trespassing on his property and had no right to be there. Good for Jon!
