A police officer was fatally shot during a routine traffic stop in Mooresville, North Carolina, late Saturday, and the suspect later killed himself, the police department said.

K-9 Officer Jordan Harris Sheldon, 32, was transported to a hospital, but died from his injuries, Mooresville Police Chief Damon Williams said at a news conference.

Just Because You Know Someone…

The Gun-hating Left loves to mention that if you own a gun, you might kill someone you know. But then you will probably have to defend yourself against someone you know. Man who killed his brother likely acted in self-defense, Winston-Salem police say.

Whether it is the creepy neighbor, or that ex-coworker-turned-stalker, we usually know the people who mean to do us harm. (Look at the domestic violence statistics sometime.) Or this case.

Winston-Salem police are continuing to investigate the case, [Lt. Gregory] Dorn said, but currently the Forsyth County District Attorney’s Office is not anticipating filing charges in Fernando’s death. It’s believed Felipe Soto fired in self-defense, Dorn said.

The guy faces other charges, but not from the shooting.

Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Dudley High senior was shot and killed in self-defense during armed robbery, police say.

Greensboro Police spokesman Ron Glenn said Friday that investigators believe James David Currie was committing armed robbery when he was shot. Officers said they have no reason to believe the shooter, who has not been named, poses a threat to the community.

But the media has to tell us what a great-guy this armed robber was, because they have no information on the person who defended himself from a felony crime.

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

How Can This Be? Someone Shot in a Gun-free Zone

I thought it was impossible to shoot someone in a campus-near gun-free zone. UNCC on high alert after two violent crimes near campus within 24 hours.

University Crossings sent Channel 9 a statement reading in part, “Firearms are not permitted on the property. We ask that residents notify the police immediately by calling 911 if they see anyone with a firearm.”

So how is it that firearms are not permitted when the place in question is NOT on a college campus? I guess the Constitution doesn’t apply wherever college administrators decree it doesn’t apply. Or something.

And while the advice that the college administrators give is almost sensible, letting law-abiding students protect themselves is of course out-of-the-question, given the gun-hating, constitution-hating, liberty-hating attitudes of colleges.

Self-defense Is Legal In North Carolina, and Prosecutors Hate That

The guy was threatened with a pipe and fired one shot. Alexander County man found not guilty in 2016 fatal self-defense shooting.

An Alexander County man charged with first-degree murder has been found not guilty by a jury following nearly three years of legal proceedings.

The guy was in possession of the pipe, but the DA had to ruin this guy’s life – or 3 years of it anyway.

The Racist Origins of Gun Control

Unusual to see something like this in a university paper. African Americans and the 2nd Amendment: The Need for Black Armed Self-Defense.

I have been, and always will be, a supporter of the right to bear arms. I believe that everyone, regardless of race, religion or ethnicity, should be able to defend themselves from any untoward threats. This is particularly true for African-Americans, as we have been victims of unprovoked violence for centuries. Lynchings, rapes, bombings and mass shootings were, and still are, common acts of violence perpetrated against us. Many of these killings were completed with full impunity, as the American Criminal Justice system sat by and did nothing. Sometimes they were even complicit in these acts.

Self-defense is legal in North Carolina

JusticeBut then I thought it was. Death of man shot by homeowner ruled ‘justifiable homicide’.

On Dec. 20, deputies were dispatched to a report of an attempted home invasion and shooting at 123 Upton St., Lexington, at approximately 9:30 p.m.

Officers with the Lexington Police Department were the first to arrive on the scene. They located a male, identified as Begley, in the front yard of the residence, deceased as a result of a single gunshot wound.

It can take some jurisdictions a lot longer than 2 months to make a decision like this. Self-defense is a human-right.
