Rarely a day goes by that we don’t see another case regarding someone, somewhere, that has used one of those ‘evil‘ guns for self-defense when protecting their property, their homes, their lives and their families lives as well. We’ve seen example after example of this…yet the mainstream media looks the other way, as usual! Gee, I wonder why that would be…hmmm?
First up we have this story:
One suspect is dead after a quick-thinking 21-year-old man sprang into action and grabbed his father’s gun to fend off three armed intruders and protect his parents in Texas.
The Houston-area young man and his parents were at home baking a cake Thursday night when there was a knock on the door, KHOU-TV reported.
“I see a young boy and I think it is a friend of my son so I open it a little bit,” the father, who didn’t want to show his face or give his name on camera, told KHOU. “These guys push and out comes two more, they push me on the ground.”
With the father down, the suspects went after the mother, telling her to get on the ground. She ran to her bedroom, where her son was already grabbing the gun from under the bed.
“I just hear a couple of times, boom, boom, boom,” the father said.
The son opened fire and struck one of the suspects, who died in one of the back bedrooms. The other two fled the scene, but deputies responding to the call picked up two men matching their description and took them in for questioning.
The entire attack lasted less than a minute, the family said. No charges are expected to be filed against the son, but they’re not taking any joy in the outcome.
“One young life is lost,” the father said.
Friends…you can watch the news report about all of this in the first highlighted link at the top of this blog post, it’s worth the time. For some reason the video and this site turns a shade of gray when I insert it…really weird.
Here’s the second report:
An alleged robber is dead after breaking in to a house in Hickory, North Carolina.
Police received a call Saturday morning from a homeowner who said he’d shot an intruder, and arrived to find both men still at the house. The homeowner is alive and lightly injured; the intruder was pronounced dead at the scene.
The survivor, identified as Paul Ohla, explained his side of the story to WBTV3: “Guy kicked in the door, he came in and, ah, grabbed me and threw me down…He kept beating me and I finally got a hold of my .38, and I shot him.”
52-year-old Carl Perry, a neighbor, said he heard two or three shots, according to the Hickory Record.
“I think it’s a bad deal went wrong,” he remarked.
Ohla was taken to the hospital for light injuries sustained during the altercation, but is expected to make a full recovery.
Investigators are still piecing together exactly what happened, but did find evidence of a break-in. Ohla is reportedly cooperating with police, and says he was acting in self-defense against a man he did not know.

And big brother wants to do something about guns…how about leaving us the heck alone. These reports are two examples of just why we need the nanny state to get our of our lives!
By the way, in both cases above, the cops couldn’t have gotten there in time to help any of the home owners…and we all know that!
