postheadericon Four Intruders Enter Home, Hurt Dog, Couple Works As A Team To End The Assault

SUMMERFIELD, FLORIDA — Having a gun gives us at least a fighting chance in the event that a home invader manages to get in. One couple recently realized just how important it is to be armed.

From clickorlando.com;

“The fatal shooting was reported at 10:30 p.m. at a house on SE 158th Place in Summerfield. According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to the home in connection with an armed home invasion.

The victim said that he was about to go to bed when four masked people entered his home and injured his dog.

“I just heard my back door get kicked in and next thing I know, my dog ran out and I heard a gun shot,” the victim said. “And the next thing I know, a guy was meeting me at my door with a gun, stuck the gun in my door. I slammed the door and the gun just started going off.”

The victim said that his girlfriend, who was in the closet at the time, threw the shotgun to him so he could defend them.

He shot one of the intruders, who was identified Wednesday as Shawn King, 32. King was dropped off outside the Ocala Health Summerfield Emergency Room, where he died.

The homeowner told reporters that his dog, Zeus, is recovering after being shot in the head during the invasion.

I read one time that just the fear of being shot is often enough to dissuade criminals from targeting certain homes. Do you believe it? Leave your comments below to get the discussion going. I would say that those invaders, and a lot of others, don’t take that into consideration. Then when they stumble upon a home with armed occupants, it’s probably going to be a bad day for them. Here’s to show how important carrying your firearm is, or in this particular situation, being alert and acting wisely with a little team effort.

postheadericon Couple Briefly Held At Knifepoint By Robber, But Then One Intended Victim Pulled His Gun

EUGENE, OREGON — Adolfo Rodriguez, 29, of Eugene, attempted to rob a concealed carrier at knifepoint while the man was out for an evening stroll with his wife. After Rodriguez pulled his knife, a heated verbal altercation took place and the man pulled his gun as a warning for Rodriguez to advance no further.

Rodriguez wisely decided to beat feet out of there. According to the Register-Guard, he was captured shortly thereafter by police and charged with first-degree robbery and unlawful use of a weapon.

The Register-Guard pointed out that if convicted, Rodriguez will face mandatory minimum sentencing totally up to 7.5 years. That’s a good stretch behind bars. The alternative of having a gun used on him, though, is likely well worth it.

There’s going to be a bunch of discussion about the pros and cons of using a gun against someone with a knife at close range. We’ve all seen the Mythbusters episode where Jamie charges at 15 feet, etc., etc.

Mythbusters was a great show. They covered a lot of topics that were entertaining. Mythbusters, though, is entertainment. Self-defense is reality.

If someone threatens to use a weapon — whether it be a knife or a gun — the person receiving the threat has a duty to take that threat seriously.

If you read the original article, try not to wander down in the comments section. You’ll see a litany of apologist rhetoric about how armed citizens need to go through even tougher regulations. One commenter, ScienceDuck, agreed with a previous statement concerning how he wished there were tougher regulations on gun-owning individuals.

Right. Having abundant firepower in a society has both plusses [sic] and minuses. It hampers reasoned discussion to pretend otherwise. I wonder if showing a gun to someone holding you at knifepoint is a good idea… a person with a knife can move quickly. But in this case the “alleged” robber was fortunately not intending to carry through with any threat and backed off.

This is really some of the thinking that the gun owning community has to contend with. There are people in this world that really think that someone threatening your life deserves to be reasoned with. The very idea of taking the risk to defend your own life seems ill-conceived to these people.

It’s enough to boil blood for those who refuse to be victims. Don’t be a victim. Carry everyday and defend yourself, your family, and your property from harm.
