Wouldn’t Think Self-defense is an Issue in Texas

But when women defend themselves from abusive men, District Attorneys don’t like that. Even in Texas, apparently. Murder charge dismissed in Robert Lee shooting.

A Coke County woman has been cleared of a 2018 murder charge in the shooting death of her husband.

The court determined her claim of self-defense couldn’t be disproved by the prosecution, according to court records.

She was attacked 3 times in one day. She broke away the third time, and got a firearm, and defended herself. But apparently the DA thought she fired too many times, or something.

During the third “assaultive episode” of the evening, she broke free from his grip, fled to the bedroom and retrieved a firearm. He approached her in a threatening manner and she started shooting, according to the state’s motion.

A witness who entered the kitchen after the shooting verified that Jasmine Moreno was in a cornered position, according to the state’s motion.

And apparently the fact that she used a single action revolver, and had to “cock the hammer for each shot” was also an issue in the DA’s eyes. Oh, there was a grand jury, but the DA runs those. (So semiautomatic pistols are a problem, and now single action revolvers are a problem?)

And the media, even in Texas, is completely opposed to self-defense. At least this source seems to be.

In the meantime, at least for now, self-defense is a human-right. And it may be your legal-right in Texas.

Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

He thought breaking into an occupied home was a good idea. Homeowner shoots person who allegedly broke into house in St. Charles County.

Police said a homeowner shot a person who reportedly broke into a home Thursday morning.

After getting shot he ran off. Cops caught up with him a few streets away and took him to a local hospital.

Florida Man and Self-defense

Because being locked in at home causes people to have strange reactions. Or something. Alleged Home Burglar Shot, Said He Was Being Chased by Dinosaurs: Police.

Police say a Florida woman was forced to shoot an alleged burglar who she said broke into her home while screaming about dinosaurs.

The incident took place Tuesday in Deltona, according to NBC affiliate WESH-TV, when the woman said she was home with several teenagers inside at the time and heard the sound of shattering glass.

“Bad drugs” may have been involved. He may have broken into as many as 4 homes before getting shot.

You can’t make this stuff up. And self-defense is a human-right.

Armed Woman Homeowner versus Idiot Home Invader

crime scene tapeHis smart mouth cost him his life. RCSD: Man shot, killed by homeowner during break-in.

The homeowner told deputies the man was attempting to get into her home through a window.

When she told him she had a gun, she said he threatened to come in and use it on her. She then fired her gun, striking the man.

He could have turned around and run, but he didn’t believe a woman would defend herself.

Cops found him dead in the driveway of the home.

So how would you respond to an an uninvited guest in your home at 8 o’clock in the morning?

Self-defense is a human-right.

Concealed Carry Stops Shooting Rampage

crime scene tapeThat thing the Left says never happens, just happened. Concealed carry permit holder fatally shoots armed woman outside north Tulsa shopping center.

A would-be bad-guy with a gun, stopped by a good-guy with a gun.

Video reportedly showed the woman was involved in an earlier altercation in the parking lot. The woman left the shopping center and returned about three minutes later, when she pulled a gun and opened fire, according to the news release.

The concealed carry permit holder reportedly returned fire.

Don’t expect this shooting to be all over the news, because the narrative hasn’t been served.

Hat tip to Bearing Arms and The Daley Gator, who notes…

The Cult of Gun Control will be heart broken, their poor, poor false narrative.

More Insanity In New York

Because the Left doesn’t think police should defend themselves, even when they get shot. BLM Activists Riot After NY Police Shoot Armed Man in Self-Defense.

One police officer in Newburgh, N.Y. was shot when trying to arrest an armed man wanted for questioning in a shooting. Bodycam footage clearly shows the man armed with a silver handgun violently resisting arrest, drawing his gun, and shooting the officer before getting shot to death by the police.

And so BLM riots, even though a cop was shot.

Now I am no apologist for cops, all you have to do is look at the Cops Behaving Badly category. But people, even cops, have the right to defend themselves, and if this guy shot a cop, well he knew what would follow.

All the evidence points to the police using lethal force as a last resort. In effect, the man committed suicide by police. And yet, it’s the police who will inevitably pay the price.


Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Homeowners in Nevada are armed; the bad guys haven’t gotten that memo. Homeowner shoots, wounds man during confrontation near Sahara, Arville.

A man was home alone when he reported hearing voices at his back door, Gordon said. The man got a firearm and confronted two people in the backyard.

One man allegedly moved toward the homeowner in a threatening manner, and the homeowner fired a shot, hitting the other man in the shoulder.

Cops came and he was taken to a hospital where he was listed as “stable.” The 2nd guy ran like a rabbit.

While the investigation continues, self-defense is a human-right.

Don’t Bring a Crowbar to a Gunfight

You can also file this under, “Coronavirus is hazardous to your health.” Shooter from coronavirus argument death no longer in custody, police say.

The shooter told police that his roommate lunged at him with a crowbar right before he started firing, police said. The gunman notified officers of the incident, police said.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Don’t Bring a Knife to a Gunfight

Things probably won’t end well for you. Eatonton homeowner shoots knife-wielding intruder, sheriff says.

[Putnam County Sheriff Howard] Sills said the man, 28-year-old Hunter Layne Harrison of Eatonton, threw a brick through a glass porch window before trying to enter through a set of French doors.

The homeowner grabbed his pistol and warned the alleged intruder to leave, but Harrison broke a second window with a barbell and entered the house, Sills confirmed.

That’s when he got shot.

Cops found him bleeding in the kitchen. They eventually arrested him. He is charged with “home invasion, burglary, disorderly conduct and four counts of felony obstruction of a law enforcement officer.”

And the sheriff had more to say in another interview. Putnam County Sheriff says ‘these hoodlums make me sick’ after homeowner shoots burlgar.

“These hoodlums make me sick. He’s got a twenty-page rap sheet and he’s over at the hospital, taking up a bed where someone more important, who might have coronavirus, might need it,” Sills said Wednesday.

They have some details on that rap sheet, if your interested. My only thought is that he was on probation for multiple crimes committed at different times. Doesn’t committing a new crime violate the terms of probation?

Self-defense is a human-right.

“Legally, they’re all equally culpable”

Felony murder AND teens tried as adults. SJW heads exploding in three, two, … Judge delays hearing in Warren County teen murder case.

They tried to rob someone, and he defended himself, killing one of the would-be bad-guys.

[Warren County Prosecutor David] Fornshell said he still expected all five cases to be bound over to the adult court and the teens to face murder charges, while acknowledging the different roles alleged.

“Legally, they’re all equally culpable,” Fornshell said.

Because you should be held accountable for the completely foreseeable consequences of your actions.

He Suffered a Failure of the Victim-selection Process

He thought breaking into an occupied dwelling was a good idea. Homeowner on Indy’s south side shoots robber trying to break in, police say.

The incident occurred just before 3 a.m. in the 800 block of Lawrence Avenue which is near East Hanna Avenue and Madison Avenue.

Detectives with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department say a man attempted to break into a house, but the homeowner shot the man.

He was listed in critical condition. The investigation continues.

Self-defense is a human-right.

How Old Do You Have to be to Defend Yourself?

The Left doesn’t want the young to be able to defend themselves. But sometimes that is both necessary and right. Police: 17-year-old shoots, kills armed home invader in Cobb County.

Police said three people with guns tried to break into and rob a home on Olive Springs Road around 9 p.m.

Machavellia Bagsby, 21, was shot and killed by a 17-year-old juvenile who lived at the home. Bagsby died at the scene.

At 17 he is too young to purchase either a handgun or a long gun. But he isn’t too young to use them in legal self-defense.

My original post on this topic is at this link.

Alcohol Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

crime scene tapeIt makes you do stupid stuff. Homeowner shoots and kills home invasion suspect in Gardnerville.

The sheriff’s office said 36-year-old Joshua McCarthy of Gardnerville was reportedly involved in a physical confrontation with the homeowner while attempting to break in. The homeowner then shot McCarthy, the sheriff’s office said.

He had been in a fight with another person at another location, and had been drinking “heavy amounts of alcohol.”

Self-defense is a human-right.

Home Invaders Are Not Sheltering in Place

And they’re getting shot by armed homeowners who are. Police: Homeowner shoots 2 intruders, killing 1 in Cobb County.

Actually I’m not sure what the great pandemic situation is in Georgia.

Police said a homeowner shot two people who broke into his home off Olive Circle Sunday night.

One of the suspected intruders died from their injuries, according to police.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Self-defense Is Legal in Pennsylvania

I suspected as much. Homeowner cleared in fatal shooting of armed intruder.

The shooting took place about a month ago.

A Pennsylvania homeowner accused of fatally shooting an armed intruder will not face criminal charges, prosecutors said Thursday.

The unidentified shooter was justified because “all necessary elements were met” under the castle doctrine, Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele said.

A recently passed Castle Doctrine in PA updated/upgraded the right of self-defense.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Armed Self-defense Evens the Odds

Or what would you do if 5 people tried to rob you at an ATM? Police: Woman shoots teen after 5 people try to rob her at west Charlotte ATM.

The incident happened around 2:30 a.m. at an ATM on Beatties Ford Road near Montana Drive. The woman says the teen and four others attempted to rob her at gunpoint while she was in her vehicle at an ATM machine. The woman says she shot the 17-year-old in self defense.

The kid later called 911 to say he was shot.

Police are still investigating, but self-defense is a human-right. (Hat tip to TheBlaze.)

Texans Are Still Armed…

Hand CuffsHome invaders still getting shot. POLICE: Palestine homeowner shoots, critically injures man attempting to burglarize home. Do you think the bad guys will ever get this memo?

According to the Palestine Police Department, around 1 a.m., officials responded to a residence in the 100 block of Clearview after a resident reported their home was being burglarized.

PPD dispatch also received multiple calls from neighbors reporting hearing shots fired. Officers were to the area looking for a prowler that had been reported by a resident in the 200 block of Parkcrest about 30 minutes earlier.

Officers arrived and found a man, identified as Oscar Oliver, 39, of Palestine, lying in the yard in front of the residence.

He had to be airlifted to a trauma center. He’ll be charged when the doctors are through with him.

Because of Governor Greg Abbott’s recent state disaster declaration, both charges will be upgraded to a first-degree felony and third-degree felony, respectively.

Now that’s a declaration I can get behind.

Self-defense is a human-right, and this is Texas, not New Jersey.

Self-defense Is Legal in Michigan

I always suspected that it was. County prosecutor finds Grand Rapids intruder shooting justified.

Matthew Jakubowksi shot and killed Adam Whitz, after Whitz pushed his way into his ex-girlfriend Anastasia Hahn’s home. Jakubowski and Hahn were living in the home together as a couple and according to the prosecutor’s detailing of the situation, Whitz had come to her home on multiple occasions and caused disturbances

On January 8th, at about 2 o’clock in the morning, he broke into the home and was shot once in the chest. He died at the scene.

A bit over two months to make the determination that this shooting is justified isn’t bad for anyplace that isn’t Texas. Or Oklahoma.

Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker said his office will not be filing criminal charges out of the shooting. Becker detailed his decision in a press release March 17.

Self-defense is a human-right, and in Michigan, it just might be your legal right as well.

Texans Are Still Armed

Home Invaders are still getting shot. 1 dead after home invasion.

So he thought it would be a good idea to break into an occupied home in Lubbock, Texas just before midnight.

The homeowner shot the suspected intruder.

That suspect tried to leave the area on a bicycle after being shot. He stopped about four blocks away on 47th Street, and was found there.

He was declared dead at a local hospital.

Self-defense is a human-right, and in Texas it is your legal right, though the investigation is ongoing.

Even in The People’s Republic of California…

crime scene tapeSelf-defense works. El Cerrito Homeowner Fatally Shoots Alleged Home Invasion Suspect.

El Cerrito police said the incident took place at a home on Cutting Bvld around 1:13 a.m. A woman called the 911 dispatch center, telling them she was huddled with her young daughter in a bedroom while her armed husband had gone to confront someone trying to break into their home.

He kept trying to break in, so the husband fired. Cops found the would-be bad-guy’s body a short distance away.

The investigation has led officers to believe that the suspect was in the process of committing a burglary and had most likely been committing other burglaries in the area.

The investigation continues, but self-defense is a human-right.
