So how would you respond to someone trying to force their way into your home? Sanford woman shoots, kills home intruder ::

Deputies said a woman at 320 S. Plank Road grabbed her pistol after hearing somebody jiggling her door knob just before 11 a.m.

When the woman answered the door, Bryant Latrelle Martin, 29, of 281 S. Plank Road, attempted to force his way into the house and got into a struggle with the homeowner, authorities said.

She shot several times. He suffered a “gunshot wound to the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene.”

The homeowner’s son was in the house at the time and called 911.

North Carolina has a version of the Castle Doctrine, so I for one doubt that the homeowner will face charges, but those decisions aren’t made by cops. They apparently decided not to arrest her for the shooting, which makes perfect sense.

Self-defense is a human-right.

He Was Told to Stay Away. He Didn’t Listen

Hasty is the name of the town, not a description of the homeowner. Laurinburg Exchange | Man shot by Hasty homeowner

Longstanding argument. The police had been called before. The homeowner even swore out warrants after an incident the previous week.

“Johnson had been warned previously not to trespass,” said [Major Ruben Castellon chief detective of Scotland County Sheriff’s Office]. “He came back and became aggressive and was shot.”

Cops view it as self-defense. Which is a human-right.

Not the Sharpest Tool in the Shed

So this guy goes to commit a crime with shoes that have his name written on the sole. And he loses one at the scene of the crime. Suspect leaves shoes with name on it at scene of break-in after being shot | WLOS

So he breaks into an occupied home and finds (you guessed it) an armed homeowner. He gets shot in the leg and jumps out the window he broke in through. In the process, he loses one shoe. At the hospital, he claims he shot himself.

Lewis was charged after deputies found a shoe at the scene with “Jon Lewis” written on the bottom.

Would You Characterize as “a Teen” Someone Old Enough to be Charged as an Adult?

Technically I suppose an 18-year-old is a “teenager,” but in the eyes of the law they are usually treated like an adult. NC homeowner shoots 1 of 5 teens who broke into his house, sheriff says | WNCN

No media bias here. We aren’t trying to paint the wicked gun-owner as someone who would shoot a defenseless 13-year-old. Of course the youngest person involved was 17.

So how exactly would you respond to an invasion of your home perpetrated by 5 suspects? All 17 or 18 years old.

Nasym Harris, 17, Darryl Blount Jr., 17, Nyshiem Cantey, 17, Tzyire Cantey, 18, Corey Jones Jr., 17, were arrested and charged with felony breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, possession of stolen goods and felony conspiracy.

The fact that they were committing a felony is highlighted by the reporter, but whoever writes the headlines clearly doesn’t want to paint gun owners in a favorable light.

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.
