People You Know Can Be a Threat

The gun-hating Left loves to say that a gun is likely to kill someone you know. And they say that like it’s a bad thing. Metairie woman fatally shot Tulane law student husband in self-defense against abuse, JPSO says.

A woman fatally shot her husband as he beat her and tried to strangle her in a Metairie home Friday, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office said Saturday. Investigators did not book her with a crime after questioning her.

They didn’t arrest her because she could provide “a detailed and well-documented history of physical and psychological abuse,” and they were convinced.

Self-defense is a human-right, even if you are defending yourself from someone you know.


Relatives of Dead Criminals Don’t Like Self-defense

Oh, and Self-defense is legal in Colorado. No murder charge in shooting, DA rules.

Three people were sleeping in a garage – they had permission from the homeowner. A couple of guys burst in and start hitting one of the three with a pipe. One of the three invited guests picks up a gun and shoots one of the attackers.

The Mesa County District Attorney’s Office will not file homicide charges against Pruitt because the case meets all three requirements of the state’s “Make My Day” law, Rubinstein wrote in a Dec. 4 letter to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office Complex Crimes Unit.

Colorado’s “Make My Day” law allows any occupant of a dwelling to use any degree of physical force, including deadly force, against another person who has unlawfully entered the dwelling, and when the person believes the other person has committed a crime inside or intends to commit a crime inside, and if the occupant believes the person might use any physical force “no matter how slight” against the occupant.

The woman who did the shooting will not face charges on the shooting, though she will face other charges.

The family of the dead guy? They don’t believe any of it.

Brandon Sanchez’ sister, Monica Sanchez, said by phone Friday that she feels justice will not be served if Pruitt is not held accountable for her brother’s killing.

“I know my brother wasn’t one to go out and cause trouble like they’re making him out to be,” she said. “Everybody was mind-boggled that they’re ruling it as self-defense.”

It’s all about racism, according to the family.

The “How Dare You Live Without Me” Attitude Never Works

It seems self-defense is legal in Ohio. (But then I thought it was.) Woman shot West Portsmouth man in apparent self-defense, Scioto County sheriff says.

The restraining order expired in September. He should have considered it to be permanent.

The woman caller told a Scioto County Sheriff’s 911 dispatcher Thursday afternoon that she shot a man who had been trying to break into her Blue Creek area home.

He had been convicted of “domestic threat” – a misdemeanor – in March. The restraining order was for July through September. She was wise to arm herself.

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

Good Guys 3, Bad Guys 0

A failure of the victim-selection process. Suspect shot and killed during attempted robbery in Moultrie.

Two armed miscreants enter a gas station with the intent to rob it. One clerk opens fire. One of the bad guys is hit multiple times. A clerk is struck in the leg with a bullet, but has been released from the hosptial.

They say 19-year-old suspect, Jaelon Powell, suffered multiple gunshot wounds. About an hour after he was admitted to a local hospital, he died from his injuries.

“Unfortunately, Mr. Powell lost his life as a result of trying to commit an armed robbery,” said Lt. Freddie Williams, with the Moultrie Police Department.

The other robber and the getaway driver have both been arrested. They are both facing felony murder charges in the death of their accomplice. (Cue the outrage from the Left in three, two, one…)

Self-defense is a human-right.

Smoked Goblin? Aisle 5

Somehow I should have known that there would be a store in Texas called “The Cowboy Convenience Store.” Cowboy Store clerk shoots robbery suspect in failed Fort Worth holdup.

A Fort Worth convenience store clerk fended off an armed robber with a firearm of his own Monday morning, police said.

Did he think this was New Jersey? Texans are heavily armed.

The clerk shot the guy in the leg. It is not considered a life-threatening injury.

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

Don’t Bring a Baseball Bat to a Gunfight

Two step-brothers thought they would take baseball bats and have their way at a house. They thought wrong. He used a bat to attack a Lake Tapps homeowner who uses a wheelchair, charges say.

When they first showed up they used the bats to attack some people outside. Then they went into the house and attacked the homeowner – who is confined to a wheelchair. They hit him in the head.

Then Bouton and his stepbrother proceeded upstairs, where a man and his pregnant girlfriend were living.

The man shot at them, aiming at their feet. When the stepbrother continued toward him, the man shot him in the chest.

The guy who got shot in the chest died. The other guy was shot in the foot, and police caught up with him at a hospital.

He had some reason why they went to the house. I wonder if he thinks it was worth it.

“The state reserves the right to add an aggravator due to the vulnerability of the homeowner,” the charging papers say.

Self-defense is a human-right.

So How Would This Have Ended If She Wasn’t Armed?

Good thing she was armed, because that means the Good Guys came out ahead. South Carolina prison escapee shot dead by female homeowner, other jail-breaker captured, cops say.

Two inmates escaped from jail. One was recaptured minutes later on a road near the prison.

Clark said that, as Dill was being captured, a female homeowner who lives nearby called 911 to report a man had kicked in her back door and she had shot him.

The woman, who was not identified by the sheriff, had a concealed weapons permit and had shot the second inmate in the head as he approached her bedroom door, according to Clark.

Authorities have not yet released the identity of the second inmate, pending review of the medical examiner’s office. The inmate was found dressed in prison clothing and had armed himself with a foot-long knife sharpening tool he grabbed in the woman’s kitchen.

So I would really love it if someone on the gun-hating Left would tell me what she should have done. Since they don’t believe she should be armed in her own defense, they must have some other ideas about what she could do in this situation.

The Sheriff isn’t confused about what would have happened. Sheriff: Woman kills jail escapee who kicks in her door. He believes she would have been hurt.

“This was a big guy. If she hadn’t had a weapon there’s no telling what would have happened,” Clark said. “I gave her a big hug. I told her how proud I was of her.”

In the meantime, self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 2, Bad Guys 0.
