postheadericon Home Invader Shot Multiple Times, Learns The Thug Life Sucks

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — A man in his 40’s, which is too old to be breaking into homes, was quickly stopped when the homeowner opened fire as he tried to break in.

Local media reports;

A 44-year-old man suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the body at 10:54 p.m. as he was trying to break into a home in the 4500 block of South St. Lawrence, according to Chicago Police.

The homeowner told investigators that he opened fire after the man forced his way into the home with a crowbar, police said. The suspect then jumped into a vehicle, which fled to Mercy Hospital. The man was expected to be transferred in critical condition to Stroger Hospital.

There isn’t a whole lot more to say about this story, except for this; What I don’t understand with thugs is the following:

  • They think they’re tough
  • When faced with an armed ‘victim’, they run
  • That makes them not so tough
  • Then, they want medical attention after being shot

A true thug would go home with his bullet wounds and pull the bullets out himself after chugging some hard liquor to dull the pain. That’s true thug life. But alas, these criminals are pansies and want proper medical attention so they don’t die. What kind of thug is that?

postheadericon Home Intruder Learns Too Late That Occupants Of California Home Are Armed

ANTIOCH, CALIFORNIA — Antioch police arrived at a residence to find a 21-year-old male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. According to a call to emergency services at 11:55 p.m., he was suspected of violently breaking into the home. Thankfully, one of the occupants was armed and shot the intruder multiple times.

Antioch police reported to East County Today that the suspect died on the scene. No charges have been filed against the occupant who shot the intruder but the investigation is under preliminary investigation.

Even in rural California, law enforcement understands the need to protect one’s self inside one’s own home. Whether it’s an apartment, a rented room in a house, or the house itself, every person that has a legal right to own a gun has the right to defend himself with it while in his own home. With the exception of Massachusetts, which weirdly alleges that force must be met proportionally, every other state in the Union acknowledges that inherent, natural right to self defense.

The best thing you can do if you’re stuck in that situation is to evade, barricade, communicate with authorities, arm up, and defend yourself if need be. That order can jumble around depending upon the circumstances but the two basic premises are this: if you’re going to defend yourself in your own home, you need a gun in-hand.

Contacting police when you get that first suspicion of a break-in can help them understand what they’re walking into. If the break-in ends, for whatever reason, and the culprits decide to beat feet before entering the premises, stay on the line with police and help them apprehend the bad guys. Do not pursue out of the house. Do not expose yourself to danger by pursuing bad guys. If they fall down due to injuries inflicted, you don’t have to endanger yourself by administering first aid. Just keep them stable and at gunpoint until authorities arrive.

Stay safe. Keep that gun close. It doesn’t matter if you live in California or Ohio, your life matters and you deserve to be safe inside your own home.

postheadericon Another Bad Guy Learns The Hard Way After Being Shot In The Neck By The Person He Was Trying To Rob

KANAWHA COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA — A homeowner critically shot a burglar in the neck after the burglar attempted a broad daylight home invasion on his property. The burglar’s condition and status is not immediately available but the extent of his injuries would predicate some serious medical attention.

According to WOWK Tri-state News 13, the burglar broke in around 4 p.m. The homeowner was home at the time and able to retrieve his gun. The burglar was shot in the neck and immediately retreated from the scene.

By the time Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office responded, the suspect had already fled the residence and retreated to a nearby building where it is believed he was taken into custody.

When seconds matter, having a gun nearby can be the difference between being a victim and survival. This homeowner was able to defend himself because he was armed with a gun. That makes things a lot easier rather than having to fight a burglar with some improvised tool.

In general, we tend to advocate for evade, barricade, arm, communicate, respond. This can take the form of retreating to a safe room and using a gun to cover a single doorway. However, if you’re stuck out in the open when a burglary occurs, your best bet is to have a gun already on you. There’s only way to guarantee that: carry a gun in the house.

It doesn’t take much to put a handgun into a holster and wear it around the house. Not only does this mean you can respond in a fraction of the time it would take you to retrieve the gun, it means that the gun is under your positive control the entire time.

That is so critical.

Positive control over a firearm is the best way to ensure it’s ready when you need it — and it’s not accessible by someone else.

A criminal wouldn’t think twice about using your own gun against you. Don’t think twice about whether or not you want that gun attached to your hip at all times.

postheadericon Why NOT Escalate From Petty Larceny To Armed Robbery?! This California Crook Learns To Chill The Hard Way.

PALMDALE, CALIFORNIA — An armed security guard shot a thief in the leg at a supermarket after the thief pulled out a knife. The security team became aware that there may be a theft-in-progress and dispatched a guard to check it out. As he approached the suspect, the suspect drew his knife. This took it from a likely simple petty theft into armed robbery.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Palmdale Station, the suspect was shot in the legs and managed to flee on foot. Deputies established a perimeter and swept him up shortly thereafter.

This is a ‘Guns Saving Lives’ story but, in California, it’s truly difficult to know what the future holds for private security and citizens. The laws governing the purchase of ammunition and several aesthetically-defined firearms are expected to force private security and concealed carriers to carefully account for every round and judge whether or not California considers their choice in firearms to be illegal by state law.

In a case like this, dealing with a petty thief who would draw a knife, we’re dealing with someone so dumb that him and people like him may be a legitimate threat to regular law-abiding citizens.

Let’s take the petty theft into consideration. If the value of the goods is less than $ 950, the charge is usually a misdemeanor.  It’s a grocery store. There is no possible way that man could be smuggling $ 950 worth of groceries on his person. It’s theoretically possible given the amazing lengths criminals will go to take property from others but it’s just not practical.

And judging by the fact he was willing to escalate the situation to violence, he was never going to be that ace criminal that figured out how to pull off a big heist.

The armed security guard thankfully had a handgun on him. If asked to contend with an armed thief with only a can of pepper spray, the vast majority of people would not escape that situation without injury.

No $ 12.50/hour job is worth permanent nerve and tissue damage.

We’re not sure if the security guard intentionally aimed low to avoid running that razor thin line of California’s imaginary definitions of self-defense or if the rounds just happened to hit there first, but he was not charged with any criminal wrongdoing.

Shoppers, probably unaccustomed to hearing gunshots from good guys, will likely complain to no end to the manager.

Carry everyday, Californians. Who knows how much longer it’ll last?
