Bob Owens rips noted Statist mouthpiece Shannon Watts

I have nothing to add to what Bob says about this story

 An Idaho man says that his concealed handgun likely saved his life and kept his daughter from being kidnapped:

“Me and my daughter were parked here and I was standing by the vehicle on the rail. There was a van that was parked in that direction with two gentlemen sitting in it,” said Broyles.

Broyles said a man came towards them with a knife as they looked towards the lake.

“I turned around and there was a guy that was sneaking up on me…probably about 15 feet behind me and he asked me if I had any money,” said Broyles.

Broyles obtained an Idaho concealed weapons permit in 2014. He said he pulled out his gun.

“I pushed my daughter back, pulled out my weapon, cocked it and aimed it at him,” said Broyles.

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office said Broyles had every right to defend himself with equal or greater force, especially if he felt his life was in danger. The same rule applied in the State of Washington.

This story touches my heart so much because of my niece, who is 4. I am blessed to have her living with me, and I would do anything to protect her. To me, people like Shannon Watts are not just a threat to our liberty, they are a threat to my ability to defend myself and loved ones. And, I agree with Bob Owens completely in his characterization of Watts, Bloomberg and their cohorts.

Anthony Broyles thinks that the men intended to likely kidnap his daughter. The men were presumably prepared to kill Broyles, knowing that a father wouldn’t give up his child without a fight.

I’ll leave you to contempt why two grown men might want a two-year-old girl.

Shannon Watts, the founder of Michael Bloomberg’s Moms Demand Action/Everytown gun cult, doesn’t want Mr. Broyles or you to be able to defend your family with firearms.

She would rather have read about Anthony Broyles being found dead on the pavement at Higgins Point along Lake Coeur d’Alene, and the urgent search for a young girl who had been kidnapped after watching her father murdered, who was likely to die herself after being brutalized in unimaginable ways.

This former Marine’s armed defense of himself and his daughter are the last thing Shannon Watts wants. Incidents of armed self-defense like this, which happen hundreds of thousands to millions of times every year, ruin the narrative she is trying to create that firearms aren’t needed.

Watts would prefer that you remain unarmed and defenseless in the face of home invaders, armed robbers, kidnappers, child rapists, abusive ex-spouses, and tyrannical governments alike. She has her own cadre of armed security guards, but you… you aren’t as worthy of protection as this wealthy public relations executive and former Democratic party campaign consultant.

You don’t deserve to be protected. You deserve to be controlled.

At least, that’s what the deranged mommy cult thinks.

Someone asked me recently why I a writing so often about gun rights, self-defense, and those that would disarm us. Stories like this are why, and people like Shannon Watts are why.

 

Homeless man attacks the wrong man

He was, it would seem looking for that next “high” and attacked a man who simply refused to give him money.

Orange County deputies were called to a 7-Eleven on the 800 block of Lee Road near Interstate 4 around 5 a.m. Sunday in reference to a shooting.

Once at the scene, deputies found a homeless man in his late 20s in the parking lot with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Investigators said the man who was shot had approached a customer at the store, only identified as a man in his 40s, and asked for money.

When the customer said he had no money and tried to leave, deputies said the man who asked for money began punching the customer in his vehicle, at which point the customer pulled out a handgun and shot him in the chest.

According to the sheriff’s office, the shooter walked back into the store, told the clerk to call police and stayed at the scene until deputies arrived.

Investigators spent hours gathering evidence and said the shooting was justified based on surveillance video footage from the store.

Sad to see anyone lose their life, but when you violently attack an innocent person, making them fear for their life…………… It is fortunate the incident was caught on tape, that proved, it seems, to the police that the shooting was justified. As was this self-defense shooting near Atlanta

The David Frums of the world can mock the idea that people defend themselves with firearms regularly, and groups of Statists like Bloomberg flunkies Moms Demand Action can lie and spin stats, but the fact is this, hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Americans use firearms in self-defense every year. The fact is that guns are used far more for good than for bad. And yes, that includes the good times they account for at the range. Yes, shooting IS fun, and of course, increases our proficiency which might save our life one day. That is why I shoot, to have fun, and to train. Here is the latest edition of Colion Noir’s show. Episode 4 Why We Shoot”

When will Liberals retire their stale talking points about guns?

I fully expect the Left to continue their war on guns and on self-defense as well. They are never sated in their quest to control people. And, I fully expect them to continue to make up stats and tell bad-faced lies about guns and gun owners, I mean it is not like they can rely on facts is it? But for God’s sake can they at least make up some new lies rather than beating the same tired, worn out talking points?

Hillary “What difference at this point does it make” Clinton, has spoken on guns.

Hillary Clinton told an audience of mental health professionals on Tuesday that the United States needs to rein in its gun culture or risk a world where insignificant disagreements could lead to shootings.

Asked about the mental health aspects of guns, Clinton said “I think we’ve got to rein in what has become an almost article faith that anybody can have a gun, anywhere, anytime. I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.”

“We really have got to get our arms around it because at the rate we are going, we are going to have so many people with guns everywhere fully licensed, fully validated,” Clinton said, painting a picture of a country where small annoyances could lead to shootings.

Clinton, whose comments came during the question and answer portion at the end of her appearance, said because “we are living at a time when there is so much external stimulation and some much internal confusion in certain people,” it would be a bad idea to let people “go to bars with guns, let them go to schools with guns, let them go to church with guns.”

But Clinton also gave an olive branch to gun owners, adding “I think you can say that and still support the right of people to own guns.”

Sorry, I almost fell asleep reading that. Good grief, is the Left STILL trying to sell the “Wild West shootouts” and “blood in the streets” lies? There is simply NO, I mean NO statistical data that supports Hillary’s specious claims. Everything, not counting the “facts” the gun grabbers make up of course proves that violent crime goes DOWN when concealed carry laws, or stand your ground laws are passed. Yes, I know, the Left tries to say that homicide rates increase after stand your ground laws are passed. However, they leave out that it is justifiable homicides A.K.A. self-defense cases that go up. There are no Wild West scenarios, and the number of defensive gun uses outnumber the number of criminal uses of guns. Sorry, Hillary, but the “science” here? It really is settled. Now, for goodness sake, stop telling your irresponsible lies, or at the very least be more original and make up new, fresh lies. Yes, we will still blow holes in these new lies, but at least we will have some variety for a change.

In this edition of You Picked the Wrong House……………

Once again, guns used to protect the innocent. Paging David Frum

A Sacramento widow asked her brother to move into her home after it had previously been burglarized, and so when two thugs came to rob them shortly after midnight on Sunday, the brother and sister were ready:

Police say that two teens were shot dead after being confronted by an occupant of the home they allegedly tried to burglarize.

“It’s happened before, so she’s pretty shaken up about the incident that’s been going on,” said a neighbor who didn’t want to be identified.

According to the Sacramento Police Department, officers were called to the 1000 block of Arcade Boulevard around 12:18 a.m. Sunday for a robbery in progress. Once at the scene, however, officers found that two young men had been shot dead.

“Last night I heard a bang, bang, bang. And then within a minute, there were cops everywhere,” said the neighbor.

Thief brings hammer to a gunfight, predictable results follow

Crime, it does not pay

If you’re going to break into a jewelry story, make certain that the owner isn’t there, especially if he happens to be pretty handy with a shotgun:

A jewelry store owner shoots and kills a suspected thief breaking in Monday morning. Just before 1 a.m. police say Robert Trevino, 41, broke the glass door of Harper’s Fine Jewelry with a hammer.

Elgin Police Chief Chris Bratton says the owner, Juan Torres, happened to be in the back of the store.

“The owner was in the back room when the suspect broke out the front door using a hammer and was attempting to go through the jewelry cases,” said Bratton.

Torres fired a 12-gauge shotgun hitting Trevino in the neck. He died inside the store.

“As best we can tell the suspect turned toward the owner with something in his hand which we found out was the hammer and then he shot him one time killing him instantly,” said Bratton.

The store owner was defending himself it would seem, but, Bob Owens points out that he might be in some hot water for firing on the thief’s accomplices

After turning Trevino’s neck into a pink mist, Torres preceded outside, where he opened fire on Trevino’s accomplices in the getaway car. Sulema Sanchez and Amanda Yanes were mildly wounded by broken glass from Torres’s shots, and both are in the Bastrop County Jail on burglary charges.

Torres’s shooting of Trevino seems easily justifiable under castle doctrine. His decision to leave the store and fire upon accomplices might end up putting him on the wrong side of the law.

If you ever face a similar circumstance, it would be wiser to stay inside from both tactical and legal perspectives.

Absolutely. He  ought to have stayed IN his store, and used lethal force IF he was attacked further. The object is always to stop the threat, going  beyond that puts in a gray area legally. Be smart!

I am not calling Carl Hiaasen a bad columnist, just a bad liar

If you wanted to sum up the absurdity of the anti-gun zealots, you could easily use this awful, thoughtless piece by Carl Hiaasen, who apparently does not let facts get in the way of his emotionalistic arguments

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the state Legislature to fix Florida’s cockeyed stand-your-ground law. The National Rifle Association owns too many of the Republican lawmakers who could end the madness.

Nothing will get done as long as black kids are the ones getting shot by white guys claiming they acted in self-defense. What might eventually pressure politicians to change the law is when white guys start getting shot.

Well, baselessly blaming the NRA and playing the worn out Race Card did not take too long did it? Good grief, do these Liberal gun grabbers EVER think? Frankly you could get better critical thinking and far more intellectual substance from a vacuum cleaner.

The jaw-dropping verdict in the Michael Dunn case in Jacksonville brought not a peep of outrage from GOP leaders in the House or Senate. The outcome shamefully underscored the lunacy of stand-your-ground, and once again put Florida in the national spotlight as a gun-nut mecca.

Oh no, GUN NUTS! Run for your lives! Another intellectually bankrupt Liberal is having a panic attack. I wonder if Hiaasen ever thought, a silly question I know, that maybe Dunn was not convicted on  First Degree Murder charge because the prosecution overreached by bringing such a charge? Frankly, I, and every other gun owner, or gun nut as Hiaasen would label us, think that Dunn SHOULD be going to prison? Hear that Mr. Hiaasen?

The sticking point was Florida’s spongy self-defense law that essentially allows the use of lethal force if a person feels threatened. True or not, practically anybody who shoots another person can say they feared for their lives. Self-defense claims in homicides have skyrocketed since 2005, when the stand-your-ground was passed.

I wonder what the color of the grass is in this man’s world? If a person feels their life is in danger why should they NOT be allowed to defend their life?  How man hoops would Hiaasen force us to jump through before we used deadly force? Now, allow me to be very clear here. If I am awakened in the night by my dogs going crazy and I hear someone in my home I will defend my home, myself, and family as long as that threat is there. If that person runs back out my door when confronted I am not going to chase them. If they, however, continue to threaten me, then I will do my best to stop that threat. The same rule applies if I am confronted on the street, in my car, leaving a restaurant, whatever. For Hiaasen to suggest, in any way that a law that allows me that basic right is misguided is insulting and shows that Hiaasen does not understand liberty.

One more point needs to be made here. The reason more justifiable homicides are occurring is that more Floridians are able, by law to defend their lives. Again, what would Hiaasen have an intended victim do? Maybe he would feel better if they were prohibited from defending themselves? Lord knows he does seem to be obsessed with his feelings.

Hiaasen goes on to make more wild accusations, suggesting gun owners are running wild in Florida gunning down people left and right

This is life in Florida — guns everywhere, and laws that favor the trigger- happy. Shoot first, then cry self-defense.

Kids playing rap music too loud? Lock and load. Some guy texting at the movies? Teach him some manners.

Don’t walk away from an argument when you can end it with a bullet. Stand your ground and hope you get the right jury.

Welcome to Planet NRA.

More factually challenged pabulum from Hiaasen. I do love that he does what Liberals always do. He pretends that anyone can always just “walk away” no matter the situation. And of course, that no armed person could ever argue without shooting someone. Because, I suspect that in Hiaasen’s mind, self-defense, if you use a gun, is somehow never OK. Good grief!
