An Acquaintance Can Be A Threat

Kathy Jackson, of A Cornered Cat, covered that fact in the past. (See the link at the bottom of this post.) JPSO: Homeowner shoots, kills acquaintance who came into Harvey home without permission

This is why the statistic about a gun being used to kill “someone you know” is a red herring. (Or an outright lie.)

Investigators with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office said the 66-year-old man, who was not identified, was shot after entering the home of an acquaintance without permission.

The 66-year-old man is believed to have brandished a firearm while he was involved in an altercation with the homeowner, who also was not identified, officials said.

So he went to the house of someone he knew – though they don’t say how well – “brandished” a gun. He was shot for his trouble and died in a local hospital.

Self-defense is a human-right, even when you know the person who is attacking you. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.

  2. I teach the Texas School Safety class for armed school faculty. One of the things we emphasize is that the “bad guy” may be one of their students. In the workplace, it may be a fellow employee. In the neighborhood, it may be the guy who lives across the street.


    • Yeah but the gun-hating Left loves to say “If you own a gun, it might shoot someone you know” as if that is ALWAYS a bad thing.
