postheadericon Ex-Boyfriend Tries Breaking Into Apartment, Ex-Girlfriend Has Other Plans

When an ex simply doesn’t get it, things could turn from bad to worse in an instant. In this case, it seems as though this woman’s ex-boyfriend was trying to break into her apartment. Well, she wasn’t having any of that.

Local news reports;

Henry Johnson was treated at a local hospital after his ex-girlfriend shot him as he allegedly broke into her home.

Pensacola Police Department spokesman Mike Wood said the woman was inside her home at Pensacola Village Apartments on East Fairfield Drive at about 5:30 a.m. when Johnson broke through the front door.

The woman shot Johnson once in the leg, and police arrived soon after, according to PPD. Police questioned Johnson soon after, and Wood said the female won’t face any charges for the incident.

As a result, Johnson is behind bars without bail, and let’s hope he stays there for a long time. I can’t see any viable reason to let this guy go, as he’s an obvious threat to at least one person in this world.

And if a restraining order is placed if he’s let out, that should do a whole lot of good. Luckily, this woman was armed –and remains armed– to fend off against people like Johnson who just can’t take a hint.

It’s a bad situation to be in, but choosing to own and use a firearm for self-defense is such an important one, and it does indeed save lives each and every day.

Had this man successfully entered the apartment, who knows what would have happened to his intended victim. Love can be a scary thing, and it can bring out the worst in people. It’s a good day when we don’t see that ‘worst’ come out, simply because it never has the chance.

Exit, stage right, armed citizen who refuses to be a victim.

CBS Dallas Fort-Worth confirms that it was an attempted robbery on a jewelry store. It is still believed to be two suspects involved. When a Good Samaritan tried to intervene, he was shot and killed. A second Good Samaritan drew his concealed carry handgun and also attempted to intervene but was also shot.

It is still unknown whether the concealed carrier’s rounds are what brought down the first suspect in this case.

UPDATE 2: The concealed carrier is believed to have critically injured one of the suspects before being injured himself by gunshots. As one of the armed robbers fled the scene, he shot additional people (CBS Austin).

postheadericon [BREAKING] Vehicle Smashes Into Students At Ohio State University, Violent Spree Ensues — Stopped By A Police Officer With A Gun

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Nine injured and one dead after a man drove a vehicle into students on the campus of Ohio State University. He then allegedly got out and proceeded to stab several bystanders before being shot to death by a police officer.

The attack began at approximately 9:52 p.m. when a driver drove his vehicle onto the courtyard outside the materials science building on the campus of Ohio State University.

via FOX News

“I didn’t see anything with the shooter, what happened was it was outside of MacQuigg Lab,” Kovacich told The Lantern. “The guy ended up just coming and hopping the curb with his car and trying to mow down a couple people. He lost control, and I think he ended up hitting three people, and then people were around the car. Somebody asked him if he was OK and the guy just hopped out of the car with a butcher knife and starting chasing people around.”

A campus security police officer shot and killed the suspect within minutes of the attack. Authorities believe the attack was pre-planned and the perpetrator is believed to be an 18-year-old Somali man.

An active shooter warning was issued for the campus at OSU by 9:56 a.m. and lifted by 11:14 a.m. After the campus was secured, authorities allowed the students to return home for the remainder of the day. Classes were cancelled.

We live in an unstable world unfortunately,” OSU President Michael Drake said.

But he was reportedly appreciative of the fast response of law enforcement to the scene.

Beware Bad Advice: Books Don’t Stop Bullets

In the midst of a mass shooting or mass violence situation, a lot of bad information is going to get pushed out through social media. We’ve seen some ridiculous things such as “use books as body armor” and using a backpack as a bullet shield.

We’re really sorry to say this but: books don’t make good bullet shields.

The best advice for situations like a mass shooting on campus is to barricade in place and wait for law enforcement.

via FOX News

Rachel LeMaster, who works in the engineering college, told The Associated Press a fire alarm sounded before the attack.

“There were several moments of chaos,” she said. “We barricaded ourselves like we’re supposed to since it was right outside our door and just hunkered down.”

Initial reports claimed there were multiple shooters and plenty of other wrong information. That’s why you should never depend upon unofficial social media channels to get a good assessment.

Evade, barricade, and communicate with law enforcement.

Concealed Carry Punishable By Felony Charges On Ohio Campuses

Ohio is one of the few states that charges permitted concealed carriers with a felony if they walk onto campus. The attacker, in this particular case, used a butcher knife and his vehicle to attempt to kill innocent people. Thankfully, a police officer just happened to be nearby.

Had a police officer not been nearby, it would have been up to students and faculty to flee the scene or fight an armed man without the benefit of a handgun. If a student or faculty member had used a gun, he likely would have faced felony charges for possessing it on campus.

That’s why we need concealed carry on campus.

These situations aren’t going away, folks. It’s up to us to make sure the laws benefit those law-abiding citizens. Otherwise, it’s just bad guys who carry onto “gun free zones”.

postheadericon BREAKING: Mississippi Poised To Become Newest Constitutional Carry State

Today, the Mississippi House voted 85-35 to concur with Senate amendments to House Bill 786, sending the legislation to Governor Phil Bryant (R) for his expected signature.  Despite months of misleading attacks by New York gun control advocate and billionaire Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun state groups, Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action, lawmakers overwhelmingly approved HB 786 this session.  Thank you to those NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their elected officials in support of HB 786 throughout the legislative process!

House Bill 786 by State Rep. Andy Gipson (R-Braxton) accomplishes the following:

  • Expands current permitless carry options to include belt and shoulder holsters.  (Legislation passed in 2015 authorized Mississippians who are eligible to possess a firearm under state and federal law to carry a pistol or revolver without a license in purses, handbags, satchels, other similar bags or briefcases or fully enclosed cases);
  • Allows church authorities to develop security programs that designate enhanced carry permit holders or those with military or law enforcement backgrounds to protect places of worship and receive the benefits of existing protections under the state’s “Castle Doctrine” law; and
  • Prohibits state or local enforcement of federal executive orders or agency regulations not approved by Congress which conflict with the Constitution of the United States or the Mississippi Constitution.

Once Governor Bryant signs the bill, Mississippi will become the ninth state to pass legislation recognizing a law-abiding adult’s ability to carry a concealed pistol or revolver for personal protection without government-mandated permitting or fees.  (West Virginia and Idaho passed permitless carry legislation earlier in the year, their respective laws take effect this summer; HB 786 takes effect upon the Governor’s signature.)

NRA-ILA would like to thank Senate and House leaders, Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves (R) and Speaker Philip Gunn (R), as well as the sponsor, state Rep. Andy Gipson (R-Braxton), and key committee chairman state Sen. Sean Tindell (R-Gulfport), for their leadership on this important bill.  If you haven’t already done so, please send them a quick note of thanks for their key support.
