Armed homeowner puts an end to a crime spree. (“Spree” may be an overstatement.) Baton Rouge robbery suspects shot by Breaux Bridge homeowner

They tried to rob a homeowner. Turns out he was armed when he answered the door.

Investigators learned that one suspect rang a doorbell at the home and waited for the homeowner to answer. When the resident approached the door, a second suspect appeared with a handgun.

The homeowner shot both of them. They were both captured by police and taken to a local hospital.

It turns out that these two miscreants were both wanted in connection to a shooting in Baton Rouge that took place on Monday.

Self-defense is a human-right.

Self-defense in Cincinnati – and Neighbors Were Shocked

You can file this under “If you break into houses, you will eventually find an armed resident.” Police identify victim in Madisonville fatal shooting

Cincinnati was at one time a fairly anti-gun city. The media were outright hostile to gun owners (where were the not?) and the city counsel did a lot to make gun owners unwelcome. The Ohio CCW law changed some of that, though not all. That makes even a relatively neutral story on lethal self-defense just a little bit amazing to me.

Police went to 6615 Roe St. about 1 p.m. Saturday for a possible burglary-in-progress call. They said a resident in the house fired at least one shot, killing the suspected burglar.

The reporter seems to be a bit vague on homicide versus murder, but he is clearly trying to be neutral.

Oh and the neighbors were shocked surprised to discover that they live in the Real World™ where crime can occur.

“It’s surprising that it took place in this neighborhood, especially in the daytime,” [a neighbor] said.

The fact is that if you can read this, then you don’t live in Mayberry or Pleasantville, and not residing in those mythic locations you live in an area where crime can (and probably does) happen from time to time, even if it doesn’t happen very often. Make your plans accordingly.

Home Invasion Stopped by Armed Homeowner

They went to the home with the apparent intent of robbing the homeowner. One is dead. One is in custody. Update: Victim ID’d in fatal home invasion shooting

Williams, who was shot multiple times, was dead at the scene. An autopsy has been ordered. The homeowner was shot once in a leg and the third man fled, police said.

That 3rd guy surrendered to police later that day.

If you break into homes, you will eventually find an armed resident. Self-defense is a human-right.

Armed Homeowner Stops Home Invasion

IF you break into homes, you will eventually find and armed homeowner. Homeowner Shoots Home Invaders – AM 720 KDWN

Two guys try to break into a home from the back yard. One ends up dead. One ends up shot in the butt. Unfortunately, one of the homeowners also was injured, by a gunshot wound to the arm.

The homeowner is not expected to be charged.

Because self-defense is a human-right.

Self-Defense Is All About Attitude

“Not today, motherf*&#@er!” Woman Uses Self-Defense Techniques She Learned Weeks Earlier To Fight Off Sex Offender

Herron said that’s when her training, that she’d learned three weeks prior in a self-defense class offered by her job, kicked in.

“Time stopped. I remembered what the instructor said in class, which was to hit with the side of my hands…Hard bones in soft fleshy places. I realized this doesn’t have to be a fair fight,” Herron said. “I had one hand to use so I just started clawing his face and punching him in the face with the side of my hand.”

She and another runner were able to lock this animal in the bathroom using a carbiner and police arrested him. He is a registered sex-offender.

I prefer firearms, but they aren’t always available. But whether you think firearms work for you or not, self-defense sure can.

Self-defense in North Carolina

How would you greet a stranger on your property at 4:30 AM? Especially if he was trying to “kill and rob” you? Police continue to investigate downtown shooting

He heard a car, and noises so he went to investigate.

The homeowner reported that the man he shot had an object similar to a shovel and came at him, according to the 911 call released Thursday by the Asheville Police Department.

Before the homeowner saw the man, he reported hearing a car pull up to his house, so he went to his back window to see what was outside.

The would-be bad-guy miscalculated, however. He ended up with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Police are still investigating.

Armed Homeowner Stops Repeat Burglar

Bad things will happen if you break into a home and meet an armed resident. Homeowner shoots man accused of multiple home burglaries.

Moments before Lane was shot, he reportedly broke into a home next door where a woman was inside with her daughters and grandson. They hid in a closet and called 911.

Then he went to the home where he met with armed resistance to his intrusion.

Hines said he was getting ready for work, and in a split second, fired three shots.

“Just as soon as it happened, he’s lucky I didn’t have my glasses on. He’s blessed. Hopefully he’ll learn from this,” [the homeowner] said.

Self-defense is a human-right.
