Your hero of the Day

Remember the man that saved an Arizona state trooper by shooting the man attacking the trooper? Well, here he is

Consider former felon Thomas Yoxall’s debt to society paid in full, with interest.

The man who shot and killed an assault suspect on a dark highway in Arizona, rescuing a state trooper, said on Wednesday that he doesn’t think of himself as a hero.

The Good Samaritan had requested media anonymity since the early-morning January 12 incident on Interstate 10.

Today, he made his first appearance since the incident at a news conference at the headquarters of the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

He identified himself as Thomas Yoxall, 43, a maintenance supervisor with a passion for photography and reading.

And he mentioned that he has a “past.”

As court records show, that past includes a 2000 conviction for felony theft.

Fortunately for DPS Trooper Edward Andersson, whose life hung on the edge before Yoxall showed up on January 12, Yoxall had his gun rights restored in 2003 after he successfully completed probation.

Yoxall has paid back his debt to society — big-time.

“That morning, I never would have dreamt that I was going to save somebody’s life, let alone take the life of another individual,” Yoxall said. “I don’t recall any thought or feeling of fear. It happened very quickly. There wasn’t necessarily time for me to react, or think logically. I don’t consider myself a hero that day.”

Yet DPS officials describe Yoxall’s actions in terms that could, in fact, best be described as heroic.

Trooper Edward Andersson responded to a vehicle rollover and saw a man and woman ejected from a vehicle. As Andersson approached, the man—an illegal alien who used to be a federal Mexican police officer named Leonard Penuelas-Escobar—fired a handgun that hit Andersson in the shoulder. Penuelas-Escobar then began slamming Andersson’s head into the pavement, trying to kill him.

Yoxall saw the attack as it took place, pulled over, and grabbed the handgun he kept in the center console and ran to help Trooper Andersson. When Penuelas-Escobar refused to stop attacking Andersson and Andersson called for assistance, Yoxall took a firing position that didn’t put Andersson in the line of fire, and took two shots that put Penuelas-Escobar down. Mr. Yoxall then ran to assist Trooper Andersson, only to see Penuelas-Escobar rise up and come at them both. Yoxall then took careful aim and shot Penuelas-Escobar in the head, killing him.

Penuelas-Escobar and the woman killed in the incident,Vanessa Lopez-Ruiz, were allegedly meth users and drug dealers.

The perfect answer to a common question

Via Mike McDaniel who tackles the “Why do you carry a firearm” query

I CARRY A HANDGUN BECAUSE:

* Evil exists and may confront anyone at any time and any place.

* I believe God exists and expects me to protect those that can’t protect themselves.

* Self-defense is a God-given, natural, unalienable right.

* There is no gift so precious as God’s gift of life.

* To fail to protect God’s greatest gift is inexcusable.

* My life is worth far more to me, those that love me, and to a just society than the lives of vicious criminals and terrorists.

* The lives of the innocent—friend or stranger—are worth far more to me and to a just society than the lives of vicious criminals and terrorists.

* Three times in my life I have raised my right hand and sworn a solemn oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.  I have never betrayed those oaths and never will.

* By carrying my handgun, I honor the foresight and wisdom of the Founders in writing the Second Amendment.

* The Constitution is only paper and ink, a statement of principals and intentions. When the will wavers and when some wish to change, ignore or destroy those principals and intentions for light and transient reasons, only the threat and, if necessary, the application of the force of arms, will suffice to preserve liberty.

* A handgun is the most convenient, usual and effective means of self-defense.

* Going armed reinforces and upholds the Social Contract.

* An armed society is a polite society.

Pretty much perfect, and yes, there is much more go read it all

Your Ugly Fact of the Day……..

Democrats, AKA Neo-Marxists see armed Americans as more of a threat than terrorists. So, rather than helping Americans defend themselves, they push for useless laws that will only affect law-abiding gun owners, and, will, lead to gun bans eventually. As Bob Owens points out if Democrats WANTED to help end mass shootings they would be pushing to ban gun free zones

If Democrats really want to stop the vast majority of mass killings, they can push for one simple law that would have the dual effects of restoring liberties nationwide, and destroying the common target of nearly every mass murder.

Yes, nearly 99% of all mass public murders over the last 66 years have the common denominator of occurring in so-called “gun free zones,” places where citizens have been prevented from being able to legally carry firearms for their own self-defense and the defense of others. Those evil souls who have decided that they must rage against innocent random human life nearly always pick densely populated spaces where they know citizens have been disarmed by ill-informed politicians.

If I were running the GOP, and man would I do a better job than those who are, I would demand Democrats join in voting to do away with “gun-free” zones which are killing fields for mass murderers and terrorists. I would hit them with this demand over and over and over! I would demand every Republican Senator and Representative to pound the Democrats with the facts on “gun violence”. And I would ask every member of Congress to bring Americans who have used a firearm to defend themselves, their families, and homes to testify about their experience!

Violent crime and homicide rates are steadily falling, there are hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of defensive gun uses annually, and 13 million or more American are carrying firearms safely and legally. New gun sales are skyrocketing and violent crime is falling! This message needs to be pounded over and again! WE ought never allow the Left to own the language!

NBA player killed after kicking in man’s apartment door

Very sad story here. But, unless some new details emerge, this player caused his own death. Bob Owens has the story

NBA guard Bryce Dejean-Jones was shot and killed in a home invasion on Saturday.

Bryce Dejean-Jones of the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans forced his way into the wrong apartment in Dallas early Saturday morning, and earned a bullet for his thuggish behavior.

NBA player Bryce Dejean-Jones was shot and killed early Saturday after he broke into a Dallas apartment he believed was his girlfriend’s and instead startled a man he didn’t know, according to police and his agent.

The 23-year-old New Orleans Pelicans guard “kicked open the front door” to a unit in the Camden Belmont Apartments, just east of Central Expressway and Fitzhugh Avenue, about 3:20 a.m., police said.

The 23-year-old New Orleans Pelicans guard “kicked open the front door” to a unit in the Camden Belmont Apartments, just east of Central Expressway and Fitzhugh Avenue, about 3:20 a.m., police said.

The player then kicked in, or was trying to kick in the bedroom door. The resident retrieved a firearm, called out to the intruder, who did not respond and fired, killing Dejean-Jones.

If everything in the report is true, then I can think of nothing else the resident of the apartment could have done but protect his life. A stranger kicking in your front door, then kicking in your in the process of kicking in your bedroom door would certainly cause you to fear for your life

Lakeland Home Invasion Suspect Shot, Killed By Homeowner – WTVT

.

.
A man was shot and killed when deputies say he unlawfully entered a home and fired at two people inside.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said it happened at a home on Chestnut Hills Drive around 6:30 a.m. New Year’s Day.

Chevez Antwann Fiason, 24, was shot and killed by the homeowner during the incident. No one else was injured in the incident.

Fiason was said to have a violent arrest history and was released from state prison in March 2015.

“Forcing your way into an occupied residence is a bold and foolish decision – if you are foolish enough to break into someone’s home, you can expect to be shot in Polk County,” Sheriff Grady Judd said.

The incident in under investigation, but no arrests had been made.

Senator Chris Murphy diagnosed with Truth Deficit Disorder

Murphy, a Democrat Statist is like most members of the Cult of Gun Control in that he lies, deliberately he loathes natural rights, such as the right of self-defense. It takes a truly miserable excuse for a human being to lie, again, DELIBERATELY, in order to strip the most basic human rights from good people.

As Vox Day notes, the first law of social justice warriors is that they always lie. Then they continue the lie, and build on the lie in order to push The Narrative forward. Here’s a perfect example

(Breitbart) On December 31 Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) claimed there were 372 mass shootings–or more than one mass shooting a day–during calendar year 2015. On the other hand, Mother Joneseditor Mark Follmanreported four mass shootings for the whole year and USA Today reported approximately 22.

What accounts for the jump from from four–or even 22–to 372? The jump is the result of Senator Chris Murphy’s (D-CT) complete rejection of the FBI criteria for a mass shooting. That criteria is four fatalities in one shooting incident. Instead of using this, Murphy has adopted the criteria of Shooting Tracker, a website which labels any shooting or series of shootings a “mass shooting” if there are four or more injuries.

There does not have to be a death, and the injuries do not have to be the result of just one shooting incident but can be the result of numerous incidents added together. This means Senator Murphy counts a parking lot shootout–like the one WMC-TV reported between two groups of people in two separate cars in Memphis, Tennessee in October–as a “mass shooting.” And it also means that an Elkhart, Indiana, parking brawl involving over a 100 people–where some of those people pulled guns and opened fire–counts as a “mass shooting” too. The South Bend Tribune reported that “four individuals were found to be wounded” in that October 14 brawl.

Murphy also inflated the number of deaths by including the shooters themselves, an example of doubling down on the lie to continue The Narrative.

With all these gang related shootings, one might think we have a gang problem, not a gun problem.

Here is to Sen. Murphy

Yes Democrats loathe natural rights

The right to bear arms, and to self-defense are at the very top of their targets

Yes, they really are coming for your guns, and they aren’t being coy about it in the slightest.

A pathetic contingent of liberty-hating, anti-American Democrats have introduced H. R. 4269, “To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.”

Yes, they’ve proposed a bill that directly counters the wording of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. They are that brazen in their hatred of your natural right to armed self-defense.

They would like to outlaw the vast majority of the best-selling rifles, shotguns, and handguns in the United States, any device or part that could “accelerate the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle,” (which could mean literally anything depending on ATF interpretation), parts kits that enable citizens to build common firearms, and standard capacity magazines.

But they aren’t done yet.

Unlike the 1994 “assault weapon” ban, this one will make it “unlawful for a person to import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, a semiautomatic assault weapon.”

They intend to make it illegal to transfer any of the tens of millions of firearms that they would ban, with then specific intent of having all of these firearms be made illegal by simple attrition in the course of a generation.

You would not be allowed to pass down your firearms to your family members, nor would you be allowed to share them with family and friends at the range. When you died, your grandfathered guns would be made illegal, despite their clear and obvious utility as firearms useful for contemporary service in the militia.

This bill is nothing more or less than a direct assault on the Second Amendment.

Their aims are evil frankly. Yes seeking to disarm law-abiding people is evil. Such a bill would never come from Republicans, or be signed by any Republican currently running for the White House. Those who insist the two parties are the same, should consider this. Turning over Congress to the Democrats could lead to such a law being passed, and signed should Hillary win the presidency. Never forget this.
