Neighbors Are Shocked

And self-defense works, even in Eastern Pennsylvania (deep blue as it is.) Person taken to hospital after shooting in New Hanover Township.

Police said this shooting was “domestic related.” Initial reports said an intruder had been shot by a homeowner.

Both can be true at the same time. Reporters seem confused on that score. As for the neighbors…

Neighbors said they’re shocked something like this would happen on their quiet street.

Sorry, but if you can read this you live in The Real World™ where crime can, and often does, happen. You are not protected by your zip-code. Crime doesn’t only happen to “other kinds of people” in other kinds of places.” You should plan accordingly.


Some Guys Just Don’t Get the “Ex” Part of Ex-boyfriend

That “How dare you live without me” attitude didn’t work out well for this guy. Homeowner shoots girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend during home invasion.

Sheriff deputies say the ex-boyfriend showed up at their door and was asked to leave. He left, but then started sending threatening texts to both his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.

Then at 3:30 AM he showed back up.

After a struggle, the ex-boyfriend ended up with a gunshot wound to the chest.

The case is in the hands of the DA, but it sounds like self-defense to me.

Self-defense Is Legal In Pennsylvania

And they made the determination fairly quickly. ‘Justifiable’: No homicide charge in Wednesday’s fatal shooting in York City.

He broke into the home where his ex-girlfriend lived and assaulted her new boyfriend.

“After being assaulted, (the resident) fired one shot, killing Christian [Gutierrez-Rosado],” [York City Police Lt. William] Wentz told The York Dispatch.

I’m sure he thought that he did the assault out of love. Or something.

Self-defense is a human-right, and in at least some of Pennsylvania, it is your legal right.

Clearly We Need Common Sense Machete-control

Just plain old Common Sense would be nice, but I doubt I’ll live long enough to see that. Florida man accused of killing wife, 10-year-old daughter with machete is apprehended after three-day manhunt.

Cops say that Chambers killed wife Lorrice Harris and daughter Shayla at their Miami Gardens home on Saturday, a few days after Harris told him she wanted to get a divorce.

I’m sure he thinks he loved her.

Another daughter was in critical condition after suffering multiple wounds in the attack.

Not exactly Father of the Year material. The only solace is that Florida is a death-penalty state, and that actually means something.

Self-defense Stops Domestic Violence “Harassment”

This is how more domestic-violence incidents should end. Woman shoots boyfriend in self defense on Marque Ann Dr..

Police say Freddy Davidson allegedly stormed into his girlfriend’s house and started harassing her. During the altercation the girlfriend shot Davidson in the leg.

Because it is self-defense even if it is someone you know. And self-defense is a human-right.

Domestic-violence and Self-defense

This is how guns can help victims. Woman shoots man in self defense.

Upon arrival, officers learned of a verbal domestic dispute which escalated to a physical altercation. According to police, during the fight, a man pointed a handgun at a woman. Then, she used her own firearm to shoot him because she said she feared for her life. The woman stayed at the home while the male got a ride to IU Health Methodist Hospital suffering from at least one gun shot wound.

Without the means of self-defense – namely, firearms – the small would be at the mercy of the large, the weak at the mercy of the strong, … That list can be quite long.

Self-defense is a human-right, and the cops are investigating this as self-defense.

A Domestic Violence Incident Short-circuited By a Good Guy With a Gun

He tried to break into his ex-wife’s home. He got more than he bargained for. Prescott Man Shot While Allegedly Breaking Into Home, Charges Likely.

They don’t say it, but it looks like he objected to the fact that she was getting on with her life. Why are people unable to accept the “ex” part of ex-husband?

Upon the Officers arrival, the reporting party told Officers that her estranged husband, Ryan Welch a 27 year old Prescott man, had tried to force his way into the house. Kyle Fox, a 32 year old Prescott Valley man, who was inside the home during this time, said that he discharged a handgun at the suspect, striking him.

Since this was a four o’clock in the morning, I think we can guess he wasn’t there for anything good.

He ran, and tried to get help at a nearby home, but the folks didn’t let him in and called police. He was picked up and flown to trauma center, where his wounds were determined to be non-life-threatening. The ex-husband faces several felony charges when he gets out of the hospital.

Self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
