postheadericon Veteran Takes Hit With Firearm, Shoots Three Intruders And Makes It Out Alive

THEODORE, AL — In an unbelievable testimony of just how tough our United States armed servicemen and women can be, a Marine veteran fended off a 3-man burglary into his home single-handedly, and with a gunshot wound.

62-year-old Michael Irving, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, was attacked by three individuals, Chasatie Dulabhan, Casey Ray Gann, and Joseph Heathcock, armed with a shotgun and a handgun.

They looked for an easy burglary. They looked in the wrong place.

“I walked right here to open the door, and that’s when he shot me right there,” Irving recalled according to WALA.

“They cut loose on me, and that’s when I went to the cabinet here and back behind the coffee was an old time pistol. I opened the door and smoked ’em.”

It gets even better.

Keeping in mind that this man has already been shot, he managed to shoot all three of the suspects — and do so deliberately, with non-lethal shots.

“I tried not to shoot any of them in the chest. I didn’t want to have to kill ’em,” he said.

Although you really shouldn’t listen to anyone who says anything other than “shoot to kill” in a life-and-death scenario like this, it’s hard not to admire this guy’s incredible clarity under both pressure and pain.

All three suspects, and Irving himself, were hospitalized. All three are expected to survive, and the three suspects are in jail.

Chalk one up for the good guys.

postheadericon [VIDEO] Bounty Hunters Go After Wanted Man At Car Dealership, Three End Up Dead

GREENVILLE, TEXAS — A pair of bounty hunters were on the track of a fugitive, Ramon Michael  Hutchinson, 49, who was wanted on felony drug charges. They found him at a car dealership and decided to take him into custody.

The results were deadly and captured on a cell phone camera.

Both bounty hunters, identified as Fidel Garcia Jr., 54, and Gabriel Bernal, 33, as well as Hutchinson were killed in the shootout. Around 20 shots were fired in just a few seconds.

From Dallas News:

Hutchinson was in an office with another person when Bernal and Garcia approached and began giving him commands, according to Greenville officials. Hutchinson tried to pull a pistol from his waistband but dropped it on a desk.

Officials said the men scuffled as Hutchinson tried to pick up his gun. Hutchinson was able to retrieve his gun and began firing, and the bounty hunters fired back, according to police.

No one else was wounded in the exchange. Watch the video below:

I guess the risk of death comes with being a bounty hunter, but it seems that a better option would have been to wait for the man to exit the building. Instead, other lives were at danger when the fugitive was confronted inside a glass box. It’s incredibly sad that these men lost their lives, and I wish that another route was taken to try and apprehend the man.

If you can’t get him as he’s leaving the dealership, follow him until he stops. Cornering a wanted man with others around doesn’t seem like the best way to get things done in the safest and best way possible.

postheadericon Homeowner’s Son Shoots Three Teen Home Invasion Suspects With AR-15

WAGONER COUNTY, OKLAHOMA — When a group of three teen thugs invaded a home, they likely did not expect what they got — the homeowner’s son, armed and ready, with an AR-15.

According to authorities at the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office, three people, all wearing masks, broke into the home via the back door, reports WPXI.

Their plan was to burglarize the home, but that was not to be.

Two of the suspects were 17, and one was 18, according to WPXI. It is unfortunate that they had to lose their lives at such a young age, but one of them was armed with a knife, and another was armed with brass knuckles.

There was no choice.

A fourth suspect was arrested — 21-year-old Elizabeth Marie Rodriguez was booked on three complaints of first-degree murder and three complaints of first-degree burglary. It is believed that she was to be the getaway driver… if anyone had gotten away.

Rodriguez was in the wrong state to pull getaway driver. as WPXI reports:

“In Oklahoma, those believed to be committing a felony that results in a death can face murder charges, even if they did not actually kill anyone.”

Yikes.

Now, we may disagree on whether or not the woman deserves charges for murder, but there’s no question that these intruders got what they deserved — and she did help with that.

What do you think?

postheadericon Constitutional Carry: The Three Best Arguments In Favor

By Robert Farago via The Truth About Guns

Back in the day, when the Texas legislature was considering reforming the licensing system for concealed carry, a lot of politicians were caught unawares. They had no idea Texans needed a permit to carry a firearm. They assumed carrying a gun was a citizen’s birthright, which it is, protected by the U.S. Constitution, no less. And now . . .

Texas is moving in the direction of permitless or constitutional carry, looking to join Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho (residents only), Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming (residents only). There are a lot of good arguments for this trend. Here are the top three:

1. Look at Vermont!

The main argument against Constitutional Carry: it’s dangerous! If you let people carry a gun without a background check and training, they’ll shoot the wrong person! Cops won’t know who’s the good guy and who’s the bad guy! And there’ll be more people carrying, leading to more “gun violence.”

You could counter these objections one-by-one, but it’s better to just say “look at Vermont.” Green Mountain State residents have enjoyed constitutional carry since the Constitution was enacted. According to the FBI’s 2015 stats, Vermont is the safest state in the country, with a violent crime rate of 118 incidents per 100k residents.

That’s not to say Vermont is the safest state in the U.S. because of constitutional carry. But their crime rates show that constitutional carry doesn’t create crime. Why would it? Criminals get guns no matter what the law says (they’re criminals, after all). Constitutional carry makes it easier for law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. Which leads us to . . .

2. Carry Permits Punish the Poor!

Some states make getting a permit to carry a firearm cheap and easy (e.g. Washington). Some states make it extremely expensive and time-consuming, to the point of impossibility (e.g. New Jersey, Hawaii).

Either way, society’s poorest members don’t have the time or money to jump through all the hoops needed to secure a permit to carry a firearm. What’s more, they lack the ability and/or desire to deal with the bureaucracy in charge of issuing licenses.

Constitutional carry makes it possible for all Americans to exercise their natural, civil and constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, regardless of their income or education. Speaking of which . . .

3. Carry Permits Are Unconstitutional!

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitutional states “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Requiring Americans to petition the government to exercise their right to keep and bear arms is as clear an infringement as requiring Americans to pass a literacy test to exercise their right to vote. Clearer even.

What other constitutionally protected right do Americans have to pay to exercise? The right to free speech? The right to religious freedom? The people arguing against constitutional carry see the right to keep and bear arms as an exception. Because death! Which takes you back to argument number one: Vermont.

Or Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho (residents only), Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming. And soon, New Hampshire. And one day, Texas.

postheadericon Armed Robber Tried To Mug Three Dudes Grilling Out In The Front Yard… Never Getting Invited To Anyone’s Barbecue Now.

RIVIERA BEACH, FLORIDA — Three men were having a barbecue on the front lawn when Julnord Vilsaint, 36, showed up with a gun and demanded their possessions. One of the men got a shotgun out from the bed of his truck and shot Vilsaint twice. Vilsaint collapsed and later died.

According to a police spokeswoman’s report to WPTV West Palm Beach Florida News, police found Vilsaint dead in the road. Beneath his body was a handgun believed to be in his possession and one of the victim’s cell phones. Police searched around the area and discovered a stolen vehicle that they believe Vilsaint drove to the scene of the crime.

The incident happened around 8:55 p.m. and it is still under investigation.

Three people hanging out, having a good time, and all of the sudden an armed robber appears. What do you do?

It’s too late to make those second guesses about a firearm when the situation is underway. Thankfully, one of the guys there was able to retrieve his shotgun. It could have gone way worse. Once the robber’s gun is already out, it’s extremely easy to mess things up. It’s even harder when that gun is not directly in your possession.

I don’t know a single person who sits in their front yard, grilling, with a shotgun slung. I’m sure it happens but it’s just not the circles I normally run in. So, in order to make it all the way over to the bed of a truck and retrieve a shotgun, point, and fire twice, Vilsaint must have not been paying attention or had his attention focused away from him.

That’s a dangerous strategy, too. Running a ploy to pull a bad guy’s attention away can open up another victim to attack. It can also get you hurt.

In these sorts of potentially violent situations, it all comes down to the choice of whether or not you’re willing to be a victim. In a recent article we did about Lance Thomas’ experience as a concealed carrier in Los Angeles during the mid-90s, we remarked on his resolve.

Despite facing down the barrel of a loaded gun multiple times, he still had the resolve to draw his gun and fire. He lived. In many cases, the bad guys didn’t. But he also got shot multiple times.

That’s the situation we’re unfortunately faced with once the gun is out and pointed at someone. If it’s not us, it’s someone — and we all hope it’s the bad guy.

This guy did a decent enough job. Let’s all do our part and stay prepared the best way we know how — carry everyday.

postheadericon Three UT Professors Sue To Try And Stop Campus Carry

By Dan Zimmerman via The Truth About Guns

As you’re probably aware, Texas’s new campus carry law has caused some sturm und drangamongst the compassionate class who mold minds full of mush on the state’s publicly funded campuses. Efforts to split the civil rights baby while staying in compliance with the law (and, not incidentally, maintaining the funding flow from a very pro-carry legislature) haven’t please anyone really.

Now, as the fall semester approaches, there’s this:

Three University of Texas professors have filed a federal lawsuit to halt a state law that would allow holders of concealed handgun licenses to bring pistols into classrooms, saying the measure would have a devastating effect on academic discourse.

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. district court in Austin on Wednesday, comes just weeks before the law takes effect on Aug. 1. It allows license holders 21 and older to bring handguns into classrooms and buildings throughout the University of Texas system, one of the nation’s largest, with an enrollment of more than 214,000 students.

The legal argument the plaintiffs hang their case on revolves around their First Amendment rights:

“Compelling professors at a public university to allow, without any limitation or restriction, students to carry concealed guns in their classrooms chills their First Amendment rights to academic freedom,” according to the lawsuit, whose defendants include the state’s attorney general, the school’s president and university’s board of regents.

Reuters is quick to remind readers that,

The Texas law takes effect on the 50th anniversary of one of the deadliest U.S. gun incidents on a U.S. college campus: student Charles Whitman killed 16 people by firing from a perch atop the clock tower at the University of Texas at Austin.

The defendants — who include include Texas attorney general Ken Paxton, the school’s president Greg Fenves and university’s board of regents — say they’re reviewing the suit.
