postheadericon Man Shot In Neck After Kicking In Door Of Ex-Girlfriend

BROOKLYN, NY — A former North Carolina resident, a woman who had moved to New York, was forced to shoot her ex-boyfriend when he stormed into her home in a rage.

She hit him right in the neck and sent him packing.

As the New York Daily News reports:

The 30-year-old man, identified by sources as Marlon Womack, stormed into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment building on Bristol St. near Blake Ave. in Brownsville at 6:13 p.m., cops said.

When Womack kicked open her door, he found the 52-year-old woman, who sources identified as Tonya Wooten, standing at the threshold with a handgun, police sources said. Wooten pulled the trigger and hit Womack once in the neck, according to sources. Medics rushed him to Brookdale Hospital where he is in stable condition, police said.

Cops found Wooten’s .40 caliber handgun at the scene. She recently moved to the city from North Carolina. While the weapon was legal there, she did not have a New York permit yet, police sources said.

Police sources failed to point out the she actually did have the only real permit that mattered — being under the protection of the Second Amendment.

Womack and Wooten’s altercation goes to point out the need for the Equalizer in not one, but two different ways.

We have a much younger man attacking a middle-aged woman.

She’s at a disadvantage, physically speaking, in two ways. First, men tend to be physically stronger than women. There are certainly exceptions, and no one is saying it’s fair, but it’s a clear and obvious reason we all need the Equalizer. Second, the woman had 22 years on the man. I’m not one to care much for age gap in relationships, but in a falling out and a physical conflict, it’s a huge factor.

New York needs to take a hard look at their firearms policies so that Americans living therein can better defend themselves.

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 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.
