A Houston father defended the lives of his wife and child this morning around 5:00 AM when three home invaders kicked in his front door. The man grabbed a gun of his own and opened fired in defense of his family:
Precinct 3 Deputy Constables said the man’s wife and child were asleep in another room. The father was in the living room on the couch when three men busted in.
The dad grabbed his gun and started shooting, and the suspects reportedly fired back as they headed back outside. There were no reports of injuries, but the home invaders got away in a dark blue vehicle.
There is no word yet on why the home invaders targeted the family, and so we don’t know if this was a targeted attack by some acquaintance of the homeowner (it isn’t uncommon for home invaders to be “friends of friends” or cohorts of service personnel who cased the place for criminal allies), or if the attack was truly a random event where the criminals picked their target on a whim… which happens.
The homeowner armed himself and stepped outside the bedroom to protect his cancer-stricken wife as she called 911.
The homeowner ran into the armed home invader. According to investigators, the home invader raised his weapon, and the homeowner was forced to fire to save his life.
Southgate police say a 16-year-old is dead after breaking into his neighbor’s home early Thursday morning and being shot by the homeowner.
The incident happened just before 5 a.m. in the 15000 block of Flanders Street, just south of Eureka Road.
Southgate Director of Public Safety Thomas Coombs said the 74-year-old homeowner got his gun when he heard the teen, who was also armed, break in.
“As he walked through the home, the home invader confronted him with the gun. He shot the home invader and the home invader died here on scene,” Coombs said.
The homeowner apparently fired just one shot. The home invader died at the scene.
As I have often said, if corporations stand up to whiny Liberals, they gain costumers!
Our friend AWR Hawkins at Breitbart made me smile with his headline, Kroger Profits Up 21 Percent After Refusing To Ban Guns.
In mid-August Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America launched a campaign pressuring Kroger to bar law-abiding citizens from openly carrying guns for self-defense in their stores. Kroger refused to change its policy and in the third quarter–“ending Nov. 8″–Kroger saw a “21 percent increase in profit…compared with the same period last year.”
According to Supermarket News, Kroger’s “net earnings for the quarter were $362 million.”
Breitbart News previously reported that Moms Demand launched their campaign on August 18. On that day Kroger subsidiary grocer Fred Meyer said it would not change its polices and less than two weeks later, Kroger said it would not be changing policies either. Both said they would continue to honor state and municipal laws at their store locations.
Bottom line? Standing up to the Bloomberg flunkees pays off
The owners of TBonz Steakhouse in Augusta, Georgia, decided to be proactive when Republican Gov. Nathan Deal signed into law one of the most comprehensive pro-gun bills in the country this April, which allowed firearms into the state’s bars and restaurants.
The eatery hung up a “No Guns” sign on its front door.
Its customer backlash was so harsh and quick that the steakhouse immediately took down the sign and then posted a mea culpa on its Facebook page.
“The sign that was put up regarding firearms has been removed,” TBonz said in its Facebook posting this May. “It was our intention to get the attention of IRRESPONSIBLE gun owners. But then we realized that irresponsible gun owners do not pay attention to signs.”
A minister in Valley Center, Kan. defended himself and his family on Sunday morning by shooting a would-be intruder in the head.
The suspect, Cory Landon, sustained a graze wound to the forehead and was picked up by police while walking down the road in a rural area just north of Wichita.
The minister was home with his wife and three children, one of them only six months old, when he heard his home alarm going off and found Landon trying to enter the residence through a window.
The minister, who has not been named, grabbed his gun and fired, hitting Landon.
Thanksgiving morning police say a mother shot an intruder who was trying to break in to her Edmonds home.
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.
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.
