Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

From right here in Dallas

DUNCANVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) – A suspected robber is on the run and three others are in the hospital after a homeowner opened fire this afternoon.

“Almost like fire crackers but louder,” said neighbor Felicia White.

According to police, three men went into a home on the 6900 block of Rolling Creek Lane and attacked the homeowner. They said one of the men stole something from his house during the struggle before the homeowner grabbed a gun.

Neighbors reported hearing five gun shots. Police said that bullets hit all three suspected robbers. They said the suspects jumped into a Silver Dodge Avenger driven by a fourth man, and that the suspects stopped at an intersection by nearby Duncanville High School.

The three men who suffered gunshot wounds were arrested and taken to the hospital.

Again, we see how a gun can be a great equalizer from multiple assailants, or when used by a weaker victim attacked by a stronger assailant. Bob Owens notes this too

Last week I saw a tweet from a muscular 20-something martial arts fan in Washington D.C. who haughtily said that guns are for “losers.” He asserted that a “real man” could handle an opponent with empty hands.

That’s great… if you are young, healthy, trained in martial arts, and only face a single unarmed opponent willing to play by your dojo-approved rules.

In the real world, where bad guys aren’t interested in fighting fair, Mr. Ego wouldn’t fair so well.

How very true

Yes, the gun-free mentality serves evils purposes

There is a reason the Left loves the idealism behind “gun free zones”. It supports their idealistic, and foolish, belief that people are basically incapable of defending themselves. But the evil of gun free zones goes beyond simply disarming good people, thus making them soft targets for evil people. The evil idealism also wishers to prevent any armed civilian from defending themselves or others. Bob Owens has further proof

Air Force veteran John Parker, who had a licensed concealed carry gun on his side, was situated in a building about 200 yards away from where the shooting began at Umpqua Community College yesterday. Instead of taking down the active shooter, Parker was prevented by staff from intervening in the shooting in which ten people were killed.

“There were a few people in the vet center and then when we heard the shooting happened, we got up and we were gonna go out and see what we could do,” Parker told Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

“Immediately the school staff stopped us and told us to get inside of the building….essentially the staff wouldn’t let us go to assist,” he added.

While UCC does have a security guard, Joe Olson–the former president of Umpqua Community College–says the school only keeps one guard on shift at a time and that guard is unarmed.

Breitbart News previously reported that the Umpqua campus is a gun free zone, and former U.S. Marshal Art Roderick suggested the gunman chose the campus for that very reason. He said, “[The gunman] probably knew that the facility was a gun free facility, [which is] an easy target for these kinds of coward individuals. They know they’re not going to get any response unless they happen to run into security or a campus police officer.”

There you are, the staff believed there was somehow greater danger in allowing a armed military veteran, to try to help those being shot than allowing the shooter to continue unmolested. This foolish belief is easy to understand when you understand how the Left thinks. To them guns = bad, and that is where their thinking ends. If a madman is shooting up a school, then an armed American intent on stopping the carnage is equally bad because to the Left, guns = bad. This is especially true if the gun is in the hand of a citizen, because to the Left only the State may be armed.

Of course, those intent on disarming Americans will say that an armed citizen in that classroom would have not done any good. But, Chris Mintz, the Army vet who charged the shooter would have certainly been better served if he had been armed. But, I know, I know, I can hear the Cult of Gun Control now, an armed student would have been killed anyway, because it is somehow morally superior to die while disarmed than to die shooting back. Perhaps, but if I am ever in that situation, give me my firearm and I will take that chance over having no chance.

Trying to break in an armed Marine’s house? DUMB!

A gun Can be an equalizer, as this story at Bearing Arms proves

Fortunately for this prior-service Marine, he had a gun, which stopped this four-man home invasion crew in its tracks:

Four teenagers were in custody Monday in connection with an attempted home invasion in Hewitt that was thwarted when the former Marine whose home the teens targeted opened fire through the front door at the would-be intruders.

Chris Barrientos, 18, was arrested on Friday and was charged with aggravated robbery.

He remained jailed Monday on that charge and two unrelated complaints.

His bonds total $45,000.

Three other teens, two 16-year-olds and at 15-year-old, are in juvenile custody.

Their names were not released.

The 15-year-old and one of the 16-year-olds were arrested Friday.

Officers arrested the last of the four, a 16-year-old, Monday at University High School in Waco, Hewitt police Chief Jim Devlin said.

Information from an inmate in the McLennan County Jail led to the arrests.

“Based on those interviews and some of the physical evidence that we recovered, these individuals are going to be our suspects in this home invasion,” he said Monday.

The attempted break-in was reported just after 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 7 at a home in the 300 block of 2nd Street.

Home owner Eric Walters admits that he made a mistake when he opened the door for a stranger at 1:45 AM in the morning, but he was smart enough to be armed when he did so. Having that gun in his possession was the difference from being bum-rushed and overwhelmed in his home, and thwarting the attack before they could breach the door.

Be smart, be trained, and be armed.

Great point about NOT opening the door. I would not have opened that door in that situation, I have a 5-year-old niece in my home, no way I am going to endanger her safety. I would have called police, and waited. If they were needing some sort of help, the police could handle that. If those knocking, were up to no good, and tried to come through the door in the interim, then they would have posed an imminent threat to me, and my loved ones, and well, you do the math…………

Suicidal Leftists Forcing Last Gun Store In San Francisco To Close

Last Gun Store In San Francisco Closing In Response To Flood Of Gun Controls – Breitbart


In October, High Bridge Arms – the last gun store in San Francisco – will be closing its doors for good due to gun controls with which the store refuses to comply.

San Francisco has emerged as the gun control capital of California, with laws regulating everything from magazine capacity to allowable types of ammunition to limits on advertising to the manner in which guns must be stored–and beyond. For decades, High Bridge Arms has adapted to the passage of each new gun control, but it views the latest push as a step too far.

According to SFist, the newest control push “comes from Supervisor Mark Farrell (District 2), and proposes to require that all gun sales in San Francisco be videotaped.” It would also “further require that all gun and ammunition buyers’ names, birthdates, addresses and driver’s license numbers be supplied to the San Francisco Police Department. Sup. Farrell proposed the idea in July, and it may be voted on this month.”

Fox News reports that High Bridge Arms’ general manager, Steven Alcairo, said the store’s owners are tired of keeping up with the new regulations and equally tired of trying to guess what might come next. Alcairo said, “This time, it’s the idea of filming our customers taking delivery of items after they already completed waiting periods. We feel this is a tactic designed to discourage customers from coming to us.” He added, “This year, it’s this and next year will probably be something else. We don’t want to wait for it.”

Comments from Supervisor Farrell bolster Alcairo’s concern that further gun control is on the way. When Farrell began pushing for the videotaping of all gun sales, he said:

Easy access to guns and ammunition continue to contribute to senseless violent crime here in San Francisco and across the country. Even though San Francisco has some of the toughest gun control laws on the books in the country – there is more we can do to protect the public.

High Bridge Arms opened in the mid-1950s. It will soon be closed after dying the death of a thousand cuts.



Hack at Texas A&M does a biased study on guns, comes out with bias result

Bob Owens exposes the latest attempt to dismiss the positive results of concealed carry

Despite being contradicted by previous research and the regularly documented instances we and other sites publish of concealed carriers thwarting crime, a Texas academic is attempting to claim that concealed carriers are not reducing crime, which the media is happy to echo.

Supporters insist that allowing people to legally carry concealed handguns reduces crime, but that has not been the result in at least four states that have tried it, including Texas, according to a newly published academic study led by a Texas A&M researcher.

The study published in the Journal of Criminology looked at the connection between crime rates and concealed handgun permits for each county in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Florida and Texas.

Researchers used two sources of data from 1998 to 2010: concealed handgun license information and arrest data from Uniform Crime Reports, which the FBI compiles nationwide to gauge arrests for serious crimes including homicide, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, theft and arson.

Overall, they found no connection between allowing concealed weapons and crime rates, which are trending downward nationwide.

“The idea that concealed handguns lead to less crime is at the center of much firearms legislation, but the science behind that conclusion has been murky,” said study lead Charles D. Phillips, an emeritus regents professor at the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health, in a statement. “The results have been so inconclusive that the National Academy of Sciences in 2004 called for a new approaches to studying the issue, which is what we’ve done with this research.”

Oh boy, did you catch the glaring problem with the study? He did not compare the number of CHL permits to violent crime rates, or the number of self-defense uses by those CHL holders? Oh no. He compares the number of CHLs to arrest rates?

Phillips based his study on two data points: the number of concealed carry permits in a given county, and the number  of arrests.

He found “no connection” because no connection does or should exist. Concealed carriers do not arrest people, and therefore Phillips’s “study” would seem to be nothing more or less than a formal fallacy.

Again, the Cult of Gun Control lies, because they have to

The Donald Releases New Policy Paper On Second Amendment Rights

Protecting Our Second Amendment Rights Will Make America Great Again – Donald J. Trump


The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period.

The Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that belongs to all law-abiding Americans. The Constitution doesn’t create that right – it ensures that the government can’t take it away. Our Founding Fathers knew, and our Supreme Court has upheld, that the Second Amendment’s purpose is to guarantee our right to defend ourselves and our families. This is about self-defense, plain and simple.

It’s been said that the Second Amendment is America’s first freedom. That’s because the Right to Keep and Bear Arms protects all our other rights. We are the only country in the world that has a Second Amendment. Protecting that freedom is imperative. Here’s how we will do that:

Enforce The Laws On The Books

We need to get serious about prosecuting violent criminals. The Obama administration’s record on that is abysmal. Violent crime in cities like Baltimore, Chicago and many others is out of control. Drug dealers and gang members are given a slap on the wrist and turned loose on the street. This needs to stop.

Several years ago there was a tremendous program in Richmond, Virginia called Project Exile. It said that if a violent felon uses a gun to commit a crime, you will be prosecuted in federal court and go to prison for five years – no parole or early release. Obama’s former Attorney General, Eric Holder, called that a “cookie cutter” program. That’s ridiculous. I call that program a success. Murders committed with guns in Richmond decreased by over 60% when Project Exile was in place – in the first two years of the program alone, 350 armed felons were taken off the street.

Why does that matter to law-abiding gun owners? Because they’re the ones who anti-gun politicians and the media blame when criminals misuse guns. We need to bring back and expand programs like Project Exile and get gang members and drug dealers off the street. When we do, crime will go down and our cities and communities will be safer places to live.

Here’s another important way to fight crime – empower law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves. Law enforcement is great, they do a tremendous job, but they can’t be everywhere all of the time. Our personal protection is ultimately up to us. That’s why I’m a gun owner, that’s why I have a concealed carry permit, and that’s why tens of millions of Americans have concealed carry permits as well. It’s just common sense. To make America great again, we’re going to go after criminals and put the law back on the side of the law-abiding.

Fix Our Broken Mental Health System

Let’s be clear about this. Our mental health system is broken. It needs to be fixed. Too many politicians have ignored this problem for too long.

All of the tragic mass murders that occurred in the past several years have something in common – there were red flags that were ignored. We can’t allow that to continue. We need to expand treatment programs, because most people with mental health problems aren’t violent, they just need help. But for those who are violent, a danger to themselves or others, we need to get them off the street before they can terrorize our communities. This is just common sense.

And why does this matter to law-abiding gun owners? Once again, because they get blamed by anti-gun politicians, gun control groups and the media for the acts of deranged madmen. When one of these tragedies occurs, we can count on two things: one, that opponents of gun rights will immediately exploit it to push their political agenda; and two, that none of their so-called “solutions” would have prevented the tragedy in the first place. They’ve even admitted it.

We need real solutions to address real problems. Not grandstanding or political agendas.

Defend The Rights of Law-Abiding Gun Owners

GUN AND MAGAZINE BANS. Gun and magazine bans are a total failure. That’s been proven every time it’s been tried. Opponents of gun rights try to come up with scary sounding phrases like “assault weapons”, “military-style weapons” and “high capacity magazines” to confuse people. What they’re really talking about are popular semi-automatic rifles and standard magazines that are owned by tens of millions of Americans. Law-abiding people should be allowed to own the firearm of their choice. The government has no business dictating what types of firearms good, honest people are allowed to own.

BACKGROUND CHECKS. There has been a national background check system in place since 1998. Every time a person buys a gun from a federally licensed gun dealer – which is the overwhelming majority of all gun purchases – they go through a federal background check. Study after study has shown that very few criminals are stupid enough to try and pass a background check – they get their guns from friends/family members or by stealing them. So the overwhelming majority of people who go through background checks are law-abiding gun owners. When the system was created, gun owners were promised that it would be instant, accurate and fair. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case today. Too many states are failing to put criminal and mental health records into the system – and it should go without saying that a system’s only going to be as effective as the records that are put into it. What we need to do is fix the system we have and make it work as intended. What we don’t need to do is expand a broken system.

NATIONAL RIGHT TO CARRY. The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states. A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state. If we can do that for driving – which is a privilege, not a right – then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege.

MILITARY BASES AND RECRUITING CENTERS. Banning our military from carrying firearms on bases and at recruiting centers is ridiculous. We train our military how to safely and responsibly use firearms, but our current policies leave them defenseless. To make America great again, we need a strong military. To have a strong military, we need to allow them to defend themselves.



What happens when you add reckless immigration policies and a disarmed populace?


Relax and enjoy it, ladies. I have less than zero sympathy for all of the American and European women who are going to be mugged, raped, and murdered by the immigrants they so graciously wanted to give residence in their countries. You wanted to help them, well, guess what? You’re going to be helping them the same way that cows help McDonald’s customers. And don’t expect those of us who opposed the invasion from the start to lift a finger to help you.

Stepping up to a cash point in central Paris on Wednesday, a woman is summarily mugged by two teenage Roma gypsies. Showing no fear or shame, and not even bothering to disguise their identities, they push her away and help themselves to cash before calmly walking away.

The unidentified victim shouts out, and manages to grab one her assailants by her jumper at one point, but is otherwise powerless to stop the assault.

Nobody bothers intervening in a crime that has become an everyday occurrence in the most popular tourist city in the world – one visited by hundreds of thousands of Britons every year.

The shocking pictures are particularly embarrassing to the Paris authorities because they were taken just a few hundred yards from a high-profile trial publicised as a clampdown on the growing menace posed by Roma gangs.

The Correctional Court at the city’s Palais de Justice has heard how Romanians Mariana Gandac, 25, and Sandra Baciu, 35 – both known as the ‘Queen of the Thieves’- coordinated thefts which were worth hundreds of thousands of pounds every year.

All took place around historic symbols of France including the Louvre museum, Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral, which is just across the Seine River from today’s attack. Seventeen defendants aged between 17 and 46, including Roma teenagers, deny theft and being members of a criminal enterprise.The vast majority are gypsies like Gandac and Baciu who allegedly preyed on crowds of foreigners, stealing their money and valuables.

Others on trial include one French security guard who allegedly ‘turned a blind eye’ to what was going on in return for bribes.

Coming to America soon? Well we certainly have a reckless, indefensibly asinine immigration policy, which is only getting worse because of Democrats who care more about political power than the welfare of their country. And, add to that Republicans who too often care more about cheap labor, or delude themselves into believing that supporting unchecked immigration will earn them credit for “compassion”, and you can see this type of thing looming in our future. Frightening isn’t it?

Well it gets worse folks. Add in the current war on police, which is designed to destroy, eventually, local police departments in favor of “nationalized” policing. Consider what happens when that “thin blue line” goes away. That leaves what? It leaves the second amendment, and the Left is working every day to destroy that as well.

Pray, arm yourself, train, and get active in politics, those are my best pieces of advice.

Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

I bet the Cult of Gun Control is horrified

A homeowner shot and killed two people Monday just before 10 p.m. near Gibson and Washington SE.

Albuquerque police said one person died at the scene and one died after being transported to a local hospital.

APD spokesperson Tanner Tixier said there is possibly a third outstanding suspect, a man who left in a white sedan – possibly a Mazda.

The homeowner is being questioned by police as to what happened, but is not being called a suspect at this time.

Anthony Duran was sitting on his porch as the shooting took place.

“I heard somebody go in the house and I thought it was the cops, but after that, I heard the three shots and I dove on the ground because I didn’t know…” Duran said.

He and his wife, Geraldine, were among the first to check on their neighbor immediately after the shooting.

“We just heard the gunshots and we…got curious because we heard somebody crying. So I climbed up on the stairs to look over the fence to see who was crying, if they needed some help.”

The Durans said that a woman at the house and the homeowner were both in tears.

“There was a gentleman standing at the doorway and I said, ‘are you guys ok?'” Duran said. “And he said, ‘I had to shoot them…I didn’t want to shoot them, but they were breaking down my door…so I shot them,’ and he was crying.”

Your Self-Defense Story of the Day UPDATED! Conflicting accounts from witnesses

The media spin will be “Why did this child have access to a gun?”, when it should be an example of how children SHOULD, at appropriate ages, be taught about how to use guns

An 11-year-old Missouri boy shot and killed a 16-year-old boy during an attempted home invasion Thursday afternoon, St. Louis County police said. 

Police said two suspects tried to break into the home north of downtown St. Louis twice before the shooting on Thursday. On the third try, authorities said the unidentified teen went through the home’s unlocked front door while the 11-year-old and a 4-year-old girl were home alone. Police said the younger boy shot the teen in the head. The would-be burglar’s body was found in the home’s front foyer.

Investigators said no one else was hurt in the incident. The second suspect fled the scene after the shooting, but was later taken into custody.

The 11-year-old’s mother was being interviewed by investigators. St. Louis County police spokesman Sgt. Brian Schellman described her as cooperative with the investigation.

Fox2Now reported that police want to know why the children were home alone and why the 11-year-old had access to a gun. Police believe the mother bought the gun after prior break-in attempts.

Got that? The story the media is spinning is “children have access to guns!” Horrors! Why would the story not be what would have happened if that 11-year-old, had NOT had an ability to  protect himself and his sister? I think we know why

UPDATE! Bob Owens has some additional info you should read

A neighbor says that the 11-year-old was arguing with the older boy on the porch when pulled out the gun, and shot the older boy in the head.

Some neighbors are providing a different version of events. One woman, who said she saw the shooting, told News 4 the 11-year-old and 16-year-old were arguing on the home’s front porch when shots were fired.

“The little boy’s (person shot) jumped up and went towards there and laid down and he lands in the doorway. He was always sitting on the porch, he never went inside the house,” said a neighbor.

Update: It’s looking more and more like the 11-year-old was a known troublemaker who murdered the 16-year-old.

But that narrative doesn’t square with Donna Jackson, who lives across the street.

She said she saw the 11-year-old shoot the 16-year-old point-blank in the head as the two were talking on a half brick wall near the home’s front door. “It was not a break-in,” said Jackson, 45. “He shot him in the head.”

She said it was traumatic to see something like that. “There wasn’t a reason why it happened like it happened,” she said. “It was really sad.”

Another neighbor two doors down from the shooting offers a similar account.

Jazmyne Clark, 18, said the 11-year-old was on the front porch when he called to the 16-year-old to approach him. She said the teen might have been seeking to sell the younger child a cellphone. When the 16-year-old reached the front door, Clark said, the 11-year-old shot him, with the teen falling forward into the open front door.

“He was never in the house,” Clark said. “He wasn’t breaking in at all. He was just trying to sell him his phone.”

Clark said the 11-year-old had been in front of the house earlier in the day waving a gun around. She said that the boy had caused problems in the neighborhood before and that this kind of thing was bound to happen eventually.

Another neighbor, Anna Carvin, 25, said the 11-year-old had previously broke into her own home and stole cellphones.

I am sure the details will get filled in, but I wanted to bring the newest info I could. I will pass along any updates

Man Robbed Five Times in Six Years Finally Has Enough And Buys A Gun… Here’s What Happened When He Encountered Latest Intruder – The Blaze

After five burglaries in six years, a retired Maine lobsterman bought a gun to defend himself and ended up shooting an intruder hours later.

Sixty-seven-year-old Harvey Lembo tells the Portland Press Herald he bought a 1941 revolver Monday.

“I’m tired of it so I went and bought a gun,” Lembo told WGME-TV.


Just past midnight Tuesday, he says he was awakened and saw a big shadow. Lembo says he climbed into his wheelchair and found an intruder near where he kept his pills.

Lembo says he ordered the man to stay where he was while he called police.

“I told him to sit on the coffee table, or I’d blow his brains out,” Lembo said.

But that’s when man bolted toward the front door and Lembo shot him in the shoulder.

“If he’d have sat there, nothing would have happened. But he wanted to leave and I’d had enough of it, I’d had enough,” Lembo told WGME-TV.

Forty-five-year-old Christopher Wildhaber was charged with burglary and violating probation and was ordered held without bail. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

A Rockland, Maine man who had been the victim of two previous burglaries is safe after he shot a home invader with a violent past.

A Rockland resident shot a man whom police said had broken into his home early Tuesday morning.

The intruder, Christopher Wildhaber, 45, of Rockland, was caught by police a short time later in the woods near the Park Street residence, according to Rockland Police Sgt. Don Finnegan. Police said Wildhaber put up a brief struggle before being subdued.

Wildhaber was taken to Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport and then Maine Medical Center in Portland and was treated for a gunshot wound to the shoulder. He has since been released from the hospital and is being held at the Cumberland County Jail in Portland, according to Rockland police.

Police said the resident of the Park Place Apartments on Park Street in Rockland had been the victim of at least two prior burglaries during the night while he slept. The resident used a pistol to shoot Wildhaber. The incident occurred at about midnight. The resident called 911 after the shooting.

God bless Sheriff David Clarke, he is a national treasure

God we need leaders like him in Congress

( – “I am done asking people in my community to outsource their personal safety to the government,” Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke told Fox News’s Sean Hannity Thursday night.

The sheriff accuses Democrats of “exploiting misery and tragedy” to pursue a political, anti-gun agenda.

“But here’s my challenge to the president of the United States, you think this is so easy. Forego your Secret Service protection, for you, for the first lady, and your children, and see what it is like to have to fend yourself.

“And then we’ll sit down and have a conversation so you know what we here at ground level have to deal with on a daily base in terms of self-defense.”

Common sense and no nonsense is in such short supply in Washington, Sheriff Clarke has plenty of both

Idiots have a wonderful way of tripping over the truth and never realizing it

Take the Washinton D.C. Chief of Police for instance

The chief of police in Washington, D.C., described all the issues created by the implementation of restrictive gun laws at a press conference about crime in the city Thursday.

The city is in the midst of a spike in murders that has brought it to nearly 30 percent above the same time last year and is on pace to reach 145 by the end of the year, a six-year high.

D.C. police chief Cathy Lanier said the city has seen “a huge influx, not only in guns in our major cities, but a huge influx in these high capacity magazines.”

Washington, D.C., which has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, has banned high capacity magazines, or those that can carry more than 10 rounds.

So, gun control laws have failed to do what Liberal idiots like Cathy Lanier say they will do, that is stop violent crime. Yet, Lanier does not allow the truth to enter her mind, instead, she blames …………..

Lanier said recent pushes to ban high capacity magazines by states around the country scared people into purchasing large quantities of the magazines, and somehow they are flooding onto the streets in D.C., where they are banned.

“There’s been a number of changes in gun laws in states all across the United States in the past several years, a number of pushes to purchase these high capacity magazines, for fear that they may not be legally available some time in the future, and now is it possible that now maybe some of those are making their way to the major cities?” she asked. “We don’t know, but for some reason they are showing up in all major cities.”

Yes, high capacity magazines, which is another manufactured term the gun control cultists use to scare people, are “making their way” to DC. Are they taking taxis Chief Lanier? Hitchhiking perhaps? Maybe they are being controlled by Confederate flags and monuments which are directing them to DC? Or maybe, just maybe, Chief Lanier, maybe laws do not have any affect of criminals? maybe, again, just maybe disarming the law-abiding has no positive outcome on violent thugs?

Or, maybe releasing violent thugs and convicted murderers, is not such a great idea?

Lanier also attributed the city’s recent murder spike to repeat offenders who have recently been released from prison obtaining weapons and then using them to murder people. 

“Multiple of our offenders involved in the homicides have previous homicides and are recently back in the community,” she said. “So far this year 10 people involved in homicide have had prior homicide charges. Ten.”

Federal law prohibits anyone convicted of a felony from owning or possessing a firearm, yet somehow more than 10 percent of the murders in the city so far this year were committed by felons.

“What we’re seeing is violent offenders that are committing shootings and homicides that have multiple violent offenses,” Lanier said. “The number of guns recovered this year and last year are both up.”

So, basically, the DC police chief stumbles repeatedly over the truth, yet never even realizes it. How typical

Your Self-Defnse Story of the Day- Elderly woman uses firearm to stop two would be rapists

Good For her!

An elderly California women thwarted two home invaders with the only practical tool for the job:

An elderly woman took hold of a firearm to scare off two men who entered her Big Sur home and attempted to rape her on Sunday, according to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office.

Around 9 p.m. Sunday, deputies responded to a report of an attempted home invasion in the 37000 block of Garrapatos Road, about 2 miles east of state Highway 1, sheriff’s officials said.

Two men armed with knives entered the home and made their way into a bedroom, where they tried to rob and rape an elderly woman, according to sheriff’s officials.

The woman was able to defend herself with a firearm, sheriff’s officials said.

This is just the latest example of a firearm being used for self-defense by a law-abiding citizen who has no other viable self-defense options.

Kurt Schlichter: Lets give The Cult of Gun Control the response they deserve

Yep! Works for me!

American gun owners are beginning to respond with a fresh, powerful argument when facing anti-gun liberals. Here it is, in its entirety. Ready?

“Screw you.” That’s it. Except the first word isn’t “Screw.”

It’s not exactly a traditional argument, but it’s certainly appropriate here. The fact is that there is no point in arguing with liberal gun-control advocates because their argument is never in good faith. They slander gun owners as murderers. They lie about their ultimate aim, which is to ban and confiscate all privately owned weapons. And they adopt a pose of reasonability, yet their position is not susceptible to change because of evidence, facts or law. None of those matter – they already have their conclusion. This has to do with power – their power.

You can’t argue with someone who is lying about his position or whose position is not based upon reason. You can talk all day about how crime has diminished where concealed carry is allowed, while it flourishes in Democrat blue cities where gun control is tightest. You can point to statistics showing that law-abiding citizens who carry legally are exponentially less likely to commit gun crimes than other people. You can cite examples of armed citizens protecting themselves and their communities with guns. You can offer government statistics showing how the typical American is at many times greater risk of death from an automobile crash, a fall, or poisoning than from murder by gun.

But none of that matters, because this debate is not about facts. It’s about power. The liberal anti-gun narrative is not aimed at creating the best public policy but at disarming citizens the liberal elite looks down upon – and for whom weapons represent their last-ditch ability to respond to liberal overreach.
