How insensitive of these three. Don’t they know how hard they are making it for David Frum to Tweet smart ass things mocking self-defense and gun owners?
In Detroit, MI two teens, 16-and 17-year old brothers, tried to rob two men working on a public lighting pole. The brothers pulled out a weapon and aimed it at the workers; one of the workers has a carry conceal permit and was armed at the time. He shot both of the teens, who are now recovering in the hospital. The workers were questioned and released.
A robber in Phoenix, AZ was not so lucky. A man arrived home and saw his carport door was wide open. He decided to enter through the front door and found his house ransacked. Two suspects escaped through the carport door, while two more ran out of the bedroom. One of them followed the other two out of the door, but 16-year-old Mario Barcenas decided to run at the homeowner.
Unfortunately for Barcenas the homeowner was carrying his gun. He took it out and shot Barcenas with one round. He was taken to the hospital and later died. Police are investigating, but said the homeowner was acting in self-defense and no charges have been filed against him.
Poor Frum, you poor ignorant, over-educated bastard!
And still no smart-assed Tweets from David Frum mocking the idea that many Americans use guns in self defense?
A 72-year-old homeowner immediately retrieved his handgun when he heard several home intruders attempting to gain entry to his Las Vegas residence early Monday morning. And when the criminals entered his bedroom, he opened fire, killing one of the suspects and sending the rest fleeing, KLAS-TV reports.
“Several intruders, had gotten into the home, entered his bedroom and he fired at least one shot, and they fled,” Metro Police Officer Bill Cassell said. “It is unusual, first of all, to have multiple people burglarizing a residence, especially when they are carrying weapons.”
When police eventually arrived at the Las Vegas home, they found one of the intruders trying to escape in a car. The car hit a patrol car and then the suspect attempted to flee on foot, however, police were able to take the man into custody.
A second suspect, described as a Latin male, was last seen running from the neighborhood where the attempted robbery took place. He remains at large. Police found a third male, armed with a handgun, dead in the homeowner’s backyard. The cause of death was determined to be a gunshot wound.
Glad this did not happen in David Frum’s America
Sometimes a news story just makes you want to smile!
But in America, getting shot by a home owner is a distinct possibility, as this man realized when he was caught showering in a home he didn’t own:
The suspect, Timothy James Chapek, was in the bathroom taking a shower when the homeowner returned to the house Monday night, Portland police said in a statement.
Accompanied by two German shepherds, the homeowner asked Chapek what he was doing in the house.
Chapek locked himself in the bathroom and made an emergency call, police said. He said he had broken into the house, the owner had come home, and that he was concerned the owner might have a gun.
Another piece of evidence that concealed carry laws are effective. The gun grabbers will never tell you that the gun is not even fired in the vast majority of defensive gun uses. In this case the gun was not even in existence, but the CHANCE it might be was enough.
