Even in the People’s Republic of Illinois, self-defense works. Police: Intruder shot by Bloomington homeowner | WJBC AM 1230

A woman living in the 700 block of S. Clayton St. told police she heard the home’s security alarm at about 1:30 this morning and entered the garage with a handgun. She reportedly found a man in the garage and shot him after he began a physical altercation.

Police found him a couple of blocks away. They took him to the hospital, and then they took him to jail.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Texans are still armed; home-invaders still getting shot.

You think that memo would have circulated by now. (This is more of a dog-bites-man story than man-bites-dog.) Dallas Homeowner Shoots, Wounds Two Suspected Burglars | NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

So 2 people try to break into a home at 4 in the morning, only to find one armed, Texan (but I repeat myself) homeowner.

Police said they found one of the suspected burglars on the ground and transported the person to Baylor University Medical Center in unknown condition.

They are still searching for the 2nd guy.

Self-defense is a human-right.

“How dare you live without me!” Didn’t work out too well for this guy

They were a relationship. It ended. But he wasn’t willing to leave it there. Man shot to death | The Lawton Constitution

Young-Dever said she was awakened with Stamper standing over her with a handgun pointed to her head and he made threats to kill her. She said she used a gun kept under pillow to defend herself. She said she doesn’t know how he gained entry to the house but that he didn’t have a key and wasn’t supposed to be there.

Cops found him “unresponsive” when they got there. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

The investigation continues.

So how would you respond to someone pointing a gun at you in the middle of the night? I would really like the gun-control groups to tell me how the hell this could have been better.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Woman Shoots Man in Self-defense

He charged her, and she responded appropriately. UPDATE: Man shot in Capitol Hill to be arrested – Capitol Hill Times

Seattle Police report a man hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his leg Monday morning will be arrested, after investigators determined the woman who shot him was acting in self-defense.

This appears to be a domestic violence issue, because “how dare you life without me” is still a thing in some people’s minds.

It didn’t work out for this guy, whatever he was thinking.

So how would you respond to an attack (or at least being “charged”) by an ex?

He Should Have Heeded the Warning

Classic Definition of Felony Murder

If someone is killed during the commission of a crime, the criminal can be charged with murder. Local man charged with murder in home invasion – News – Paducah Sun

Two guys break into an occupied home. One is shot and killed, the other is shot on wounded. The injured guy is charged with murder.

Howard, 28, shot and killed Reed and wounded Ingram. The grand jury did not indict Howard.

[Sheriff Jon Hayden] said Howard’s actions were within the “scope of what Kentucky law allows.”

“Based on our investigation and our analysis of the law, we concluded that Mr. Howard was within his rights to defend himself if he feared for his safety in his own home,” Hayden said.

The injured guy called the homeowner in advance to threaten violence. People love to say that in situations like this, there must be drugs involved, but the sheriff said that there were no drugs involved, even if he was keeping some things confidential.

If you break into homes, you will eventually meet with an armed response.
