Self-defense Is Legal in Ohio

Even if “The System” doesn’t seem happy about that. No indictment for man accused in Middletown shooting death.

Since the no bill came from a Grand Jury, no one is saying anything.

There was a theft involved.

According to detectives, Halcomb admitted to shooting Riley. Prosecutors said evidence in the investigation included elements pointing to self-defense.

A Butler County Grand Jury did not return an indictment.

Bad Guy With Gun Stopped by Good Guy With Gun

That’s something the Left says never happens. Arizona store shootout ends with robber, bystander dead.

He was robbing the store. He fired shots at the clerk and killed someone in the store, described by the police as an “innocent bystander.” The clerk managed to escape.

Another bystander then shot at the suspect and both exchanged gunfire, [Scottsdale Police Sgt. Ben] Hoster said. The suspect was killed at the scene and the bystander was injured, he said.

And the cops believe that this guy was on something of a crime spree when he was stopped.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

He probably thought it would be easy to rob an old man. 72-year-old South Nashville homeowner shoots, kills intruder.

An elderly homeowner in South Nashville shot and killed an intruder early Wednesday morning in what Metro Police detectives say is a justified homicide.

Self-defense is a Human-right.

How Would You Respond to an Armed Intruder?

Maybe he thought being armed made him invincible. Police identify man described as armed intruder killed at Springfield home.

Investigators say Kenneth L. Clay, 36, of Springfield tried to enter the home of David R. Jones, 18. Jones told investigators Clay shot him in the foot. He then shot Clay with his own firearm, killing him.

The investigation continues. Self-defense is a human-right.

Defund the Police Descends on St. Louis

St. Louis, Missouri is not a happy place. Crazy People Are Dangerous.

“Defund the police” is their demand, because the protesters are Democrats and Democrats hate police.

The mayor of St. Louis is a Democrat named Lyda Krewson, who apparently didn’t get the memo. She doesn’t hate police enough:

So the protesters decided to march on the mayor’s home. In the process they passed the Busch-Faust mansion, owned by Mark and Patricia McCloskey. Mr. and Mrs. McCloskey decided that they should stand guard and they did.

If you’re a rich white guy living in a mansion in a Democrat-run city like St. Louis, better keep your AR-15 handy, because . . . Well, you can finish that sentence.

Concealed Carry in The Windy City

It seems to be catching on. Chicago shooting: Gunman critically wounded after shootout with concealed-carry holder in Little Village.

I noticed the stats over at HeyJackass! include instances of self-defense shootings in every month this year, so I decided I should dig into it a bit….

A 24-year-old man was in a yard in the 2400-block of South Kedvale Avenue at about 9:17 p.m. when police said a 23-year-old man approached from the sidewalk and began firing shots.

The 24-year-old man, who is a licensed concealed-carry holder, fired shots In return, hitting the other man several times.

The would-be bad-guy fled, but then was taken to a local hospital.

Self-defense is a human-right, and it just might be catching on in The People’s Republic of Illinois. Here’s a link to HeyJackass! and self-defense stats.

Use the Tool You Have Available

Self-defense in the Windy City. Lakeview homeowner confronts burglar with machete, cops say.

It all started when the victim walked into his home on the 1300 block of West Roscoe and discovered the burglar around 8:30 p.m., according to a police report. The homeowner grabbed a machete and ran the burglar out of the house.

Maybe he will consider an upgrade to his available tools.

Self-defense Is Legal in Indiana

Even if the DA doesn’t want it to be. Prosecutor closes Henderson shooting death case, ruling it self defense.

6 months to decide that shooting someone, threatening you with a baseball bat inside your own home is OK. Was this DA hoping he could charge the homeowner with something?

Nash said the prosecutor’s office believes the use of force by the homeowner in the confrontation was justifiable, legal self-defense. “We have nothing at this point to suggest otherwise in this case,” Nash said.

Nash, the prosecutor, sounds incredibly disappointed.

Self-defense in Tennessee

There are few details. Homeowner fatally shoots man in DeKalb County, sheriff says.

Preliminary investigation suggests the homeowner and man exchanged gunfire and the homeowner fatally shot the man.

No names have been released; no charges have been filed. That second point leads me to believe the cops think this is self-defense.

Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

crime scene tapeHe thought breaking into a home was a good idea. He was mistaken. Home invasion suspect shot and killed by homeowner, suspect identified.

Police were dispatched to 5500 block of Paw Paw Lake Road around 2:30 a.m. for reports of a home invasion in progress.

While on the way, dispatchers advised police the homeowner possibly shot the intruder, reports said.

Officers arrived and the homeowner came out of the house with his hands in the air.

The police found the would-be bad-guy inside the home. He was dead from a single gunshot wound.

Every Bullet Comes With a Lawyer Attached

Worth emphasizing. Want to Own a Firearm to Protect Your Home? These Are the Rules.

Millions of American gun owners are incredibly responsible. Every month, I find story after story of law-abiding citizens who used their firearms in lawful defense of themselves or others.

Unfortunately, in looking through these stories, I also find far too many instances where gun owners messed up, acted irresponsibly, or didn’t appear to fully understand the limits of their right to self-defense.

Just as we highlight examples of responsible gun owners, it’s vital that we “call out our own” when gun owners make a mistake.

After the example I cited on Monday, I thought this was important.

Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Things did not go as they planned. Man charged with 9 felonies in West Bloomfield shooting.

Two guys follow a man to his home at one o’clock in the morning. As he gets out the car in his own driveway they confront him. One of the would-be bad-guys is armed. The homeowner is also armed. They trade gunfire.

Officers arrived and confirmed that the homeowner had been shot multiple times. He was treated at a hospital and released. A 37-year-old Warren man was found shot dead at the home.

Cops caught up the 2nd guy a short time later. He had a gun, and a gunshot wound to the stomach. He was taken the the hospital and then to the county jail. Among other things he was charged with “Felon in possession of a firearm,” and armed robbery, as well as other crimes.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Good Guy With a Gun – Bad Guy With a Gun

crime scene tapeAnd a handful of innocent bystanders. CPL holder fatally shoots man aiming gun at motorists on Michigan highway, police say.

The soon-to-be-dead-guy was standing in the middle of the road, firing a weapon and pointing it at people. Then he pointed at a Concealed Pistol License (CPL) holder.

Preliminary investigation indicates that a 22-year-old resident of Delta Township had been traveling east on Saginaw Highway when he stopped near Brookside Drive. The male standing in the highway then pointed the pistol at him, according to police.

The 22-year-old, a CPL holder, fired his pistol from his vehicle, striking the male, identified as a 26-year-old with a last known address in Walker. Further information will be updated pending next of kin notification

So this is the thing that The Left says NEVER happens. A good guy with a gun stops a crazy person with a gun.

Self-defense is a human-right. (Hat tip to Keep and Bear Arms.)

How Should a Woman Defend Herself?

This guy was breaking into her home at 2:15 in the morning on Sunday. What should she do? What should she do after they “defund” the police? Man shot by homeowner after attempting to break in.

Police say the suspect, a 30-year-old man, was shot by a home owner after attempting to force his way into her home, by breaking her front living room window and the glass of the front door.

Cops took him to the hospital, and then to jail.

In the absence of police, after the Left has disbanded them, should she just shoot until he’s dead, and then dispose of the body? That doesn’t sound right to me. So in the absence of firearms, what should she do? Just revel in her impending victim-status? I would love to hear what the Left has to say on either issue. (Other than the ad hominem attacks I usually get, that is.)

Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Those of us who are not lawyers usually call this Felony Murder. Columbia homeowner shoots 2 intruders, 1 dies and 1 charged.

Two guys decide to break into an occupied home. The homeowner is armed.

Darion J. Logan, 27, of Columbia, died at the scene of the shooting Wednesday night. Fabian D. Goldman, 28, of Columbia, was treated for a gunshot wound and then taken to the Boone County Jail, police said in a news release Thursday.

Goldman has been charged with second-degree murder and first-degree burglary because Logan died while the two men were committing a felony, police said.

The Left will say this isn’t fair. They don’t believe you should be held accountable for the completely foreseeable consequences of your actions. They probably feel that responding to two miscreants breaking into your home in the middle of the night with deadly force comes from a place of “privilege” or something to that affect.

In the meantime, in the Real World™ self-defense is a human-right, and being held accountable for your actions is a thing most of us take for granted.

Texans Are Still Armed

And the “How dare you live without me” attitude never turns out well. HPD: Woman’s boyfriend shoots ex-boyfriend after door to their apartment is kicked in.

Investigators believe a man kicked in the door to an apartment where his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend were. Police said the current boyfriend grabbed a gun and shot the ex-boyfriend, in fear for his life.

No charges have been filed in the shooting, because self-defense is a human-right, and this happened in Texas.

He Thought Having a Gun Made Him Invincible

He was wrong. Gas station clerk shoots man who pulled out gun inside store in St. Louis County.

Early investigation revealed the man who was shot was asked to leave the store after flourishing a gun inside the store. The man refused to leave the store and tried to enter the secure area of the store where the clerk and cash register were located, police said.

An employee of the store then shot the man.

He was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Fixed the Broken Link. (Note to self: Don’t edit posts in the middle of the night.)

“There are no neighborhoods that are safe”

Neighbors are usually shocked, not so much right now. Neighbors react to homeowner fatally shooting intruder overnight.

There was a break in, at an Oklahoma home. The home invaders were met with deadly force; one died, and one got away.

If what happened last night happened at John Lenan’s home, he says there would have been a similar outcome.

“I am a firm believer in the second amendment, I carry, my wife carries,” said Lenan.

The Broken Arrow father says he’s not afraid to protect his family.

It goes on like that. Details on the break-in at this link.

They Suffered a Failure of the Victim-selection Process

They thought breaking into a home was a good idea. BAPD: Homeowner shoots suspect during an attempted home invasion.

The Broken Arrow Police Department says an alleged suspect is dead and another on the run after an attempted home invasion Saturday night.

The investigation is ongoing, but self-defense is a human-right, and Oklahoma has version of the Castle Doctrine know as Make My Day.
