postheadericon Woman Shoots Teen In Head After He And Others Breaks Into Her Home

HOUSTON, TEXAS — A teenager who broke into a woman’s house was shot in the head by that woman, and is now in critical condition but expected to survive.

The incident played out as follows, and other teens are thought to have been involved;

The woman said she was home alone when she heard someone breaking into her home. A relative told Eyewitness News reporter Pooja Lodhia that the teens were hiding behind the victim’s couch when one of them jumped up. That’s when she shot the suspect in the head.

What these teens were up to is anyone’s guess, but they sure did pick the wrong house to enter uninvited.

As for the friends of the shot teen, let’s hope that they are charged with whatever crimes are coming their way. From the article, it is unclear whether the others involved were caught or if they made a run for it after losing a member of their thug team.

Armed at home? It’s always a smart thing. Your firearm should never be too far away and ideally, if you’re awake, should be on your person. Things can happen in an instant, and there’s no telling how quickly you’ll need to access your firearm.

postheadericon Armed Citizen Stabbed In Neck And Head By Teen, Then Shot At Suspect. The Rest Of The Story Will Piss You Off.

SALISBURY, NORTH CAROLINA — A gun owner confronted a teenager attempting to break into his car outside his apartment. The teenager turned around and stabbed the man repeatedly in the neck, head, and back before the gun owner drew his handgun and shot at the teenager.

According to the Charlotte Observer, Tyler Aaimer Spencer Nichols, 17, turned himself in and was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, four counts of breaking and entering of a motor vehicle and three counts of larceny.

That teen was held on $ 25,000 bail. That’s the criminal equivalent of a slap on the wrist, and that’s the “piss you off” part. For such a crime, a higher bail amount would seem reasonable. No?

Thankfully, the victim was able to get treatment and was released from the hospital.

This is a case of a gun owner trying to do the right thing and stop a teenager from breaking into his property. Unfortunately, he was dealing with a violent thug that wouldn’t hesitate to stab a stranger in the neck. This thug will be a welcome addition to a juvenile correction facility, no doubt.

As for the man, he nearly lost his life. This could have ended much worse considering the extent of injuries he sustained.

A defensive mindset is needed at all times. Never assume just because the person doing the crime is a minor that he will be less prone to using violence. If anything, he may feel he has more to prove.

If you’re not comfortable defending yourself with a gun, you need to hold back and wait for police. It’s okay. In fact, in a lot of cases, it’s probably best for the gun owner to stay back and let police handle it. Rushing into that sort of situation will inevitably put you at greater risk. And it’s with that risk you may be forced to defend yourself against someone who has no compunction about taking your life.

A defensive mindset. Every gun owner needs to have it. Protect yourself, protect your family, don’t put yourself into a risky situation you don’t need to be in.

postheadericon Dad Shoots And Kills Armed Intruder Who Held Gun To Daughter’s Head

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI — A father watched as a gun was put to his daughter’s head by two armed men outside their home, and he immediately sprung into action.

Armed Dad, 2; Armed Thugs, 0.

A 17-year-old girl was outside getting something from her car when she was confronted by two armed men who held a gun to her head and told her to return to her home.

The girl’s father saw the suspects walking his daughter toward the home and went to get his gun. He fired several shots at the suspects, hitting both of them.

The girl’s mother also grabbed a gun and fired a round but did not hit either suspect.

One of the suspects died at the scene, while the other was critically injured. Being a pretty wimpy thug, he got into the car and contacted his brother to take him to the hospital. The thought of dying was apparently enough to draw the thug out of him, and he was taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds to his chest and thighs. If he were a true badass, he would have just slept the injuries off, amirite?

This armed father wasn’t about to let these two criminals hurt his baby girl, and he did what he had to do to protect her.

No one in the home was injured, including the daughter.

Also, its a good reminder to teach your children the importance of situational awareness. Whether you’re out and about or simply on your own property, it’s always important to know what –and who– is in your immediate area.

Tell me again how armed citizens don’t save lives?
