postheadericon Suspects Find Out What Happens When They Pick An Armed Home

VERO BEACH, FL — When a pair of thugs tried to get the best of an armed homeowner at his own place, they soon found out how terrible an idea that often plays out to be.

One was wounded, and the other booked it for the hills as fast as his little legs would carry him.

As WPBF reports:

A Treasure Coast man who shot an intruder at his home Thursday night will not be charged.

Indian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar made that announcement Friday afternoon, saying it appears 25-year-old Taylor Reese was defending himself. According to Sheriff Loar, Reese heard someone breaking down the door of his home on 14th Place SW just before 6 o’clock Thursday night. The sheriff said Reese grabbed his gun, went to check out the noises, and found himself face to face with two people trying to break into his home.

“One of the suspects fired several rounds at the victim,” Sheriff Loar said. “The victim returned fire, striking the suspect.”

Sheriff Loar identified the wounded suspect as Howard Bartee III. Bartee was shot twice, once in the thigh and once in the head. He remains in the hospital but is expected to recover.

The second suspect is a juvenile who ran from the home. He turned himself into deputies Friday afternoon… Sheriff Loar said charges are pending against the two suspects. He added he hopes this incident serves as a message to criminals that a good portion of residents in Indian River County are armed.

“Just shy of ten percent are lawfully possessing firearms,” Sheriff Loar said. “That’s something to keep in mind.”

If there’s a sweeter sight than a responsibly-armed homeowner defending themselves and their loved ones, it’s a sheriff that back his or her community’s right to keep and bear arms.

postheadericon Thug Storms Detroit Store Brandishing Handgun, Shows What Happens When No One Is Armed

DETROIT, MI — An armed robbery in Detroit, Michigan, went off without a hitch for the thug looking to make a quick buck.

The store’s lack of armed employees and the assailant’s actions have repercussions for all of us.

Take a look at the story below by The Detroit News:

The man walked into a MetroPCS in the 1500 block of E. Lafayette at about 7:45 p.m. Jan. 15 to ask about a cell phone and “then approached the clerk armed with a black handgun and demanded money from the register,” investigators said in a statement.

He fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, according to the release.

To spur tips leading to an arrest, authorities on Tuesday released surveillance footage of the suspect. He is described as an African-American, age 21 or 22, with a medium complexion, last seen wearing a black hat and dark coat with a zipper covering his mouth.

No one was reportedly injured during this incident, but this still shows what can happen when there is no good guy with a gun ready to stop deadly threats just like this.

We teach the underbelly of our society — we teach thugs everywhere — that threatening the lives of others is not only permitted, it’s rewarding.

A life threatened here without consequence is the seed for more down the road, as is every other violent offense that goes off without a hitch.

There are people in our society that want to affect change not through armed and vigilant defense, but by changing the hearts and minds of those who would do harm.

There’s nothing wrong with changing the hearts and minds of criminal elements of a culture — that’s a great thing.

What activists for gun control don’t see, however, is that the agent of change for the hearts and minds of many — if not most — criminals is the knowledge that good guys with guns are prepared to put them out of commission if they decide to prioritize their material gain over the safety of others.

It’s instilling a healthy respect for consequences for deviant and dangerous behavior — that’s changing hearts and minds.

This store has got to get an armed employee or two in their midst.
