The Liberal bed wetters who go ballistic when it is suggested we should teach our kids to shoot, at an appropriate age of course, will hate this story

This is intense:

Officials with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office say one person is dead after a 13-year-old boy opened fire at a suspected burglar at a home on Tuesday.

CCSO officials announced late Tuesday afternoon that one of the subjects involved in the attempted burglary at an Elderwood Drive home died at Trident Hospital.

Authorities did not say who the subject was, but did state that the juvenile involved was not the deceased subject.

The incident happened at a home in the Woodside community.

According to CCSO officials, the boy reported hearing someone trying to break into the home, so he got his mother’s gun and went to the back door.

“He saw a subject out back trying to get inside so he fired his mother’s gun through the door and the subject reportedly fired back,” CCSO officials said.”The subject fled the scene in a silver vehicle.”

Authorities say the silver vehicle reportedly took the subject to Trident Hospital.

The responding deputies arrived at the home on Elderwood Drive at 1:34 p.m.

An incident report states the boy was asked to come out of the home.

Deputies say the boy then exited the home without incident.

“Sheriff’s Office has detectives on the scene at Elderwood and at the hospital,” authorities said.

The sheriff’s office is continuing the investigation.

Neighbors said they were thankful for the boy’s quick action.

Thank God he had access to a firearm. I know I can hear the Cult of Gun Control wailing as I write that, but I am correct in my statement. Certainly no Liberal “gun control” law was going to stop the thugs from breaking in that home, and what happens if that boy was not able to defend himself? Yep, I think we know how that story ends.

Who wants to bet Moms Demand Action will laud this mother for her #GunSense ?

On the surface, 21-year-old Semantha Bunce doesn’t appear to be much different than any other new mom, but when home invaders kicked in her door as she fed her four-month-old son, she showed the soul of a warrior as she took the fight to those who dared to put her family in danger.

Bunce met the home invaders head-on in a gun battle, driving them from her home. Even though she took two hits in the exchange of gunfire, she managed to climb back up the stairs and check on her son before she dialed 911 and began taking care of her wounds before the ambulance arrived:

Bunce met the intruders at her bedroom door and when the men opened fire on her in the stairwell area, she fired back, her husband said.

“I think it was a shock to the intruders just as much as it was to her,” said Paul Bunce, her husband.

Paul told Channel 9 his wife is a combat medic with the National Guard. He believes her training allowed her to stay mentally focused and calm during what was a fight for her life.

Think how this would have gone if the Cult of Gun Control goons had their way?

Let all hope Dominos does not fire this employee for protecting his life

Police say a Domino’s delivery driver was delivering  pizzas near Timothys Landing off 103rd street when  he was approached by two armed man, demanding money.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said the deliveryman grabbed his own gun and shot one of the suspects.

Action News Jax spoke with crime and safety expert Ken Jefferson to see if the shooting is justified.

“This is a clear case of self-defense this person was working and was approached by two armed men,” said Ken Jefferson.

Jefferson says as long as the pizza deliveryman had a permit for that gun he used, he was in his rights to carry that weapon.

“He protected himself with the weapon he had,” said Jefferson.

Now that is what I call real #GunSense!

An armed pastor, is a good pastor

The pastor of a small storefront church in Detroit was forced to shoot a 25-year-old man to defend his congregation during a service yesterday afternoon after the man came in and threatened them with a brick:

A pastor shot and killed a man armed with a brick during a church service on Sunday after the man threatened parishioners at the City of God Church on Detroit’s west side, according to police.

The shooting happened inside the church on Grand River Avenue around 1:45 p.m.

The 25-year-old man stormed into the church during a service wielding a brick. Police say the man was well known by the congregation and especially the pastor.

The 36-year-old pastor pulled out a gun and shot the man multiple times. Authorities say the pastor had been trying to help the man, but those efforts had gone south.

Investigators said four or five shots were fired from the Glock handgun.

“The suspect entered the church, he allegedly had a brick in his hand and was threatening the pastor,” said Asst. Detroit Police Chief Steve Dolunt. “We’ve had a previous incident, at least one, and the pastor filed a police report.”

The man was taken to the Botsford Hospital and was pronounced dead.

Authorities said the man has a history of threatening the pastor and members of the congregation.

Via Bearing Arms

Of course Hillary would do anything to consolidate as much power in the federal government, she is a Leftist, and a noted liar on guns

“Forty percent of guns are sold at gun shows, online sales.”

–Former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, remarks on gun violence at Manchester Community College, N.H., Oct. 5, 2015

Clinton made this statement while decrying what she called a “loophole” in the law that permitted guns sales without a background check. “We need to close that loophole so that when we have universal background check, it will cover everybody,” Clinton said.

First, the “loophole” mentioned by Clinton refers to “person-to-person” sales, primarily by people who do not earn a livelihood from firearm sales.  People engaged in the business of selling guns by contrast need a Federal Firearms License (FFL), but unlicensed sellers can sell to a neighbor, a friend, at a gun show or over the Internet.

But many sellers at guns shows actually have an FFL and conduct background checks, while 17 states (including California, New York and Illinois) have passed laws which require at least background checks on all handgun sales at gun shows.

So where does the 40 percent figure come from? It is derived from studiesthat were based on data collected from a survey in 1994, the same year that the Brady Act requirements for background checks came into effect. In fact, the questions concerned purchases dating as far back as 1991, and the Brady Act went into effect in early 1994 — meaning that some, if not many, of the guns were bought in a pre-Brady environment.

The survey sample was relatively small — just 251 people. (The survey was done by telephone, using a random-digit-dial method, with a response rate of 50 percent.) With this sample size, the 95 percent confidence interval will be plus or minus six percentage points.

The analysis concluded that 35.7 percent of respondents indicated they did not receive the gun from a licensed firearms dealer. Rounding up gets you to 40 percent, although the survey sample is so small it could also be rounded down to 30 percent.

Moreover, when gifts, inheritances and prizes are added in, then the number shrinks to 26.4 percent. (The survey showed that nearly 23.8 percent of the people surveyed obtained their gun either as a gift or inherited it, and about half of them believed a licensed firearms dealer was the source.)

In short, this number the Cult of Gun Control has been throwing around is erroneous, and deliberately so. They lie because they have to, facts, like this one do NOT back their arguments up

A new FBI report shows that while FBI NICS background checks (a proxy for gun sales) have soared nearly 82-percent over the past 15 years, violent crime has plummeted over 18-percent.

Anti-liberty Democrats keep screaming that there is an “epidemic” of “gun violence,” but the facts just keep proving them wrong, year after year.

The FBI this month released the 2014 edition of Crime in the United States, and it revealed that the estimated number of reported violent crimes decreased 0.2 percent when compared with 2013. And the estimated number of property crimes decreased 4.3 percent from 2013 levels.

Homicides with firearms in 2014 were down 3.9 percent on a year-over-year basis. Consistent with previous years of this ongoing work, the vast majority of these murders were committed with handguns, although all categories of gun murders were lower. Rifles of all kinds were involved in just 3 percent of gun murders in 2014, lower than the number of deaths attributable to knives, blunt objects, and even fists or feet.

While the one-year numbers may not look that dramatic, they are nonetheless important because they serve to illustrate the long-term, 20-year downward trend in crime in the United States is continuing.

Using NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) data over a ten-year period since 2005, the best proxy we have for firearms sales, we see a 74.1 percent increase in background checks even as the violent crime fell 16.2 percent.  The 15-year trend is even more dramatic, showing an 81.8 percent increase in NICS numbers even as violent crime fell 18.2 percent.

Put simply, more firearms in the hands of the mostly law-abiding American population have not yielded an increase in crime.

Facts destroy the argument for gun control folks, learn them, use them, and help preserve liberty

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.

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.

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
