Texans Are Still Armed

crime scene tapeBad Guys are still getting shot. Clerk shoots, kills suspected robber who shot at him in north Houston: Police.

Police said the suspected robber walked in and shot once toward the clerk. That’s when the clerk said he went to the back of the store and got his gun.

The would-be bad-guy died in a local hospital.

Another Texas School to Add Armed Staff

I think maybe I should move to Texas… Mount Pleasant board approves plan to allow employees to carry guns.

A spokeswoman for the school said the board approved using the Guardian Plan, which is a state-approved plan which solely provides hand-picked armed employees the ability to defend themselves in the event of an active shooter.

Don’t mess with Texas. (Hat tip to Keep and Bear Arms.)

Texans Are Still Armed

And the “How dare you live without me” attitude never turns out well. HPD: Woman’s boyfriend shoots ex-boyfriend after door to their apartment is kicked in.

Investigators believe a man kicked in the door to an apartment where his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend were. Police said the current boyfriend grabbed a gun and shot the ex-boyfriend, in fear for his life.

No charges have been filed in the shooting, because self-defense is a human-right, and this happened in Texas.

Where Would We Be Without Experts?

Go read the whole thing; it isn’t long. But I will highlight the stats, which caught my eye. COVID-19: The ‘Experts’ Are Clueless.

Something really went wrong in New York.

The per-capita death rate in Georgia remains 88% lower than New York’s; Florida’s rate is 93% lower and Texas is 96% lower.

Of course with more than 70,000 people per square mile, and a governor who set things up to kill old people in nursing homes, it’s hard to see how a virus wouldn’t ravage that city. And state.

Texans Are Still Armed…

Home invaders are still getting shot. The bad guys still haven’t read that memo. CCPD: Suspected burglar shot, killed by North Beach homeowner.

So how would you react to an uninvited guest in your home at midnight?

orpus Christi police say a suspected burglar was shot and killed by a homeowner in North Beach early Monday morning. [SNIP]

Officers say evidence shows the suspected burglar did make entry into the home, was shot by the homeowner, then fled the scene in an unknown vehicle.

Self-defense is a human-right, and this took place in Texas.

She Refused To Be a Victim

Don’t expect much coverage of this event by feminists or the national media, since it doesn’t support the narrative. She wasn’t a victim. A gun probably saved her life.

The “How dare you live without me!” attitude fails again. Woman shoots, kills ex-boyfriend with shotgun after he breaks into home, report states.

She broke up with him. She changed the locks. He broke in.

The woman told officers she hid in the bathroom when he broke into her home and shot him with a shotgun when he entered.

Ouch.

This is Texas, so she is not facing charges at this time. (Cops don’t make that decision, but…)

And the guy who got shot had no pulse when cops got to him. Shotgun to the stomach will do that. He was rushed to the hospital where he eventually died.

Self-defense is a human right.

There is a bit of a legend about a Colt firearm engraved as follows:

“Be not afraid of any man;
No matter what his size;
When danger threatens, call on me—
And I will equalize!”

That principle certainly seemed to apply Wednesday evening.

Texans Are Still Armed…

Bad guys are still getting shot. Suspected car burglar shot, killed during shootout with homeowner, police say.

Homeowner confronts a bad-guy breaking into his car. They are both armed and exchange fire.

Authorities said the suspect, believed to be 18-25 years old, was shot in the chest. He fled on foot, but was found deceased in Bellaire Park around the corner, police said. A handgun was in his possession.

The investigation continues.

Texans Are Still Armed…

Bad guys are still getting shot. The bad guys still haven’t read that memo. Store clerk opens fire on robbery suspects, killing one, police say.

The store was closed, but they forced their way in anyway.

The clerk was in a plexiglass pod when he was approached by the robbers, police said.

The clerk, fearing for his life, opened fire on the suspects, wounding and killing one of the men, police said. A second suspect ran from the scene while two others drove away in a dark-colored BMW.

A guy with a gunshot wound was found a short distance away, and taken to a hospital.

Self-defense is a human-right, and this took place in Texas, not New Jersey.

The Crazy – It Hurts

Procedure exists for a reason, and a janitor violating SOP caused some problems. State hospital escapee shot by Wichita County homeowner.

So this guy had been court ordered into a state hospital. A janitor left his keys on a table, which this guy picked up and used to escape.

Soon after that, Duke said a woman at the home on Rathgeber Road noticed Reyes swimming in her pool in only his underwear.

Duke said the woman called 9-1-1, and that’s when Reyes noticed her looking at him out the back window and tried to get into the house.

The husband got there before the cops, and he grabbed a shotgun. The short story is that when he charged, the homeowner shot him in the leg.

The investigation continues.

Self-defense is a Human-right, and this incident took place in Texas, not New Jersey.

This Looks Like a Straight-forward Case of Self-defense

My guess is that they arrested this guy because he works for Customs and Border Protection, and so he must be guilty of something. LPD: Self-defense claimed by suspect in fatal shooting of Laredo firefighter.

The dead guy was the husband of the woman whose apartment he broke into. They were separated. He was apparently incensed because the CBP officer was with her. He sent her threatening text messages. He threatened to break in the door to the apartment. He attacked the CBP officer and knocked him to the floor before he was shot.

But because a Customs and Border Protection officer must be guilty of something, they arrested this guy on a murder charge. In Texas.

Politics over facts?

Texans Are Still Armed

Home invaders are still getting shot. You would think the bad-guys would have gotten the memo by now. Intruder shot and killed by homeowner in Fredericksburg, GCSO says.

A 19-year-old man was shot and killed after he broke in to a Fredericksburg house early Saturday morning, according to the Gillespie County Sheriff’s Office.

The homeowner, a 73-year-old man, told police he woke up to a “loud banging noise” outside of his home near the back patio around 12:45 a.m. Saturday.

The 19-year-old attacked the 73-year-old, and the 19-year-old ended up being shot in the head by another person in the house.

Self-defense is a human-right, and this is Texas, not New Jersey.

He Thought Having a Gun Made Him Dangerous

He was wrong. Clerk shoots suspect with own gun in attempted robbery.

Lubbock police were told two men walked into a Valero gas station around 10 p.m. in the 5000 block of Slide Road wearing masks. One of the men, 17-year-old Avantre Fitts, had a gun and demanded money from the store clerk, and the clerk refused.

Fitts then walked around the counter to the clerk and the second suspect ran from the scene.

Fitts got into a fight with the clerk and the clerk was able to take the gun.

The clerk suffered a knife wound. A customer who came in the store jumped on Fitts and took the knife. Cops arrested him nearby and took him to a local hospital.

As for the title of this post…

Wouldn’t Think Self-defense is an Issue in Texas

But when women defend themselves from abusive men, District Attorneys don’t like that. Even in Texas, apparently. Murder charge dismissed in Robert Lee shooting.

A Coke County woman has been cleared of a 2018 murder charge in the shooting death of her husband.

The court determined her claim of self-defense couldn’t be disproved by the prosecution, according to court records.

She was attacked 3 times in one day. She broke away the third time, and got a firearm, and defended herself. But apparently the DA thought she fired too many times, or something.

During the third “assaultive episode” of the evening, she broke free from his grip, fled to the bedroom and retrieved a firearm. He approached her in a threatening manner and she started shooting, according to the state’s motion.

A witness who entered the kitchen after the shooting verified that Jasmine Moreno was in a cornered position, according to the state’s motion.

And apparently the fact that she used a single action revolver, and had to “cock the hammer for each shot” was also an issue in the DA’s eyes. Oh, there was a grand jury, but the DA runs those. (So semiautomatic pistols are a problem, and now single action revolvers are a problem?)

And the media, even in Texas, is completely opposed to self-defense. At least this source seems to be.

In the meantime, at least for now, self-defense is a human-right. And it may be your legal-right in Texas.

Texans Are Still Armed…

Hand CuffsHome invaders still getting shot. POLICE: Palestine homeowner shoots, critically injures man attempting to burglarize home. Do you think the bad guys will ever get this memo?

According to the Palestine Police Department, around 1 a.m., officials responded to a residence in the 100 block of Clearview after a resident reported their home was being burglarized.

PPD dispatch also received multiple calls from neighbors reporting hearing shots fired. Officers were to the area looking for a prowler that had been reported by a resident in the 200 block of Parkcrest about 30 minutes earlier.

Officers arrived and found a man, identified as Oscar Oliver, 39, of Palestine, lying in the yard in front of the residence.

He had to be airlifted to a trauma center. He’ll be charged when the doctors are through with him.

Because of Governor Greg Abbott’s recent state disaster declaration, both charges will be upgraded to a first-degree felony and third-degree felony, respectively.

Now that’s a declaration I can get behind.

Self-defense is a human-right, and this is Texas, not New Jersey.

Texans Are Still Armed

Home Invaders are still getting shot. 1 dead after home invasion.

So he thought it would be a good idea to break into an occupied home in Lubbock, Texas just before midnight.

The homeowner shot the suspected intruder.

That suspect tried to leave the area on a bicycle after being shot. He stopped about four blocks away on 47th Street, and was found there.

He was declared dead at a local hospital.

Self-defense is a human-right, and in Texas it is your legal right, though the investigation is ongoing.

Texans Are Still Armed…

Home invaders are still getting shot. Intruder attempting to break into home shot by homeowner in north Houston.

According to the homeowner, the intruder climbed over his private fence and attempted to get inside of his home multiple times.

That’s when the homeowner fired twice through the door, Harris County deputies said, hitting the suspect twice — once in each leg.

The would-be bad-guy is expected to survive.

Self-defense is a human-right. And it’s Texas. You would think bad guys would figure out that breaking into an occupied home was a bad idea. But then, if they were smart, they wouldn’t be bad guys.

Did He Think He Was In New Jersey?

This is Texas! Katy homeowner shoots man who kicked in his door.

The homeowner told deputies that a man kicked in his door, so he pulled out a gun and shot him in the arm.

Because what do you think a Texan homeowner is going to do? This guys is a little lucky that he didn’t get shot in the head.

Self-defense is a Human-right. And then there is Texas, where it is your legal right.

Wild Hogs Starting to Make Life Difficult for Suburbanites

Unexpectedly, a problem that was ignored didn’t get better. But it was ignored when it was rural problem; now it is hitting suburbs and people are begining to recognize that there is a real a problem. At least they are waking up to the problem in Texas.

First up, a guy and crossbow versus a hog. Wild hog attacks Montgomery County homeowner and his dogs.

A feral hog attacked his dogs, then went after him. When his wife came outside the hog charged her. At some point it broke the back door. But the issue was when it charged his wife.

That was the last straw.

The homeowner got his crossbow and shot and killed the hog.

They’ve let the numbers get so out of control that the hogs are invading suburbia. Doing property damage, and in December 2019, a woman died from wounds inflicted by feral hogs.

They are not just an invasive species, they are destroying wildlife and natural settings.

“They’re a detriment to water quality, soil quality, wildlife, health and human safety, all kinds of things,” Texas A&M wildlife specialist John Tomecek told Houston Public Media.

Next up, a father takes on a smaller hog. (Texas Parks and Wildlife says that the hogs can vary between 100, and 400 pounds.) Watch: Atascocita dad wrangles feral hog after it chases after daughter.

“My husband grew up on a pig farm,” Taryn said. “[So he] took it upon himself to restrain the animal while we waited.”

After the pig was captured, a police officer referred the Powe’s to a personal friend that could “take care of the problem,” Taryn said. She said it took her husband, who is a plant operator for SI Group in Baytown, about three minutes to catch the pesky pig and tie him up before help arrived.

Don’t expect the suburbs to do anything productive until after several people die in attacks. If you don’t think hogs can be that dangerous, look up what a boar-spear is, and why they are designed the way they are. And then hope the wild hogs never show up on your doorstep. (They are roaming the Midwest, but haven’t become the problem they are in Texas. Yet.)

Texans Are Still Armed…

Bad guys are still getting shot. Houston homeowner shoots would-be intruder, police say.

The man heard noises coming from the back of his house in the 1800 block of Capron Street in northeast Houston around 1:30 a.m., according to Houston Police Department Lt. Ronnie Wilkins. Checking on the noise, he saw someone’s hand reaching into the home near an air-conditioning unit, so he went and grabbed a pistol, Wilkins said.

This would-be bad-guy is expected to survive. The homeowner has not been charged.

Violent Criminal Out on Bail Commits Murder

Because keeping violent criminals in jail is unfair. Apparently that holds even in Texas. Arrest Made; Sisters Killed in A&M Commerce Residence Hall Identified.

Two sisters were killed in a Texas A&M University dorm by an ex-boyfriend of one of them. He had committed a violent assault against his ex-girlfriend, just last week. He was out on bond.

NBC 5 has learned Smith was free on bond related to an alleged assault family violence incident that took place last week. The report was filed by Abbaney Matts, one of the shooting victims.

So. Violent criminal with long record. Domestic violence complaint. Possessing a gun was not legal for this guy. Of course violent assault against his ex-girlfriend and murdering two people was also against the law, so I guess it really is true that criminals just ignore the law.

While the Left is screeching about gun control, I want to know if you think he would have had a problem stabbing his ex-girlfriend if he couldn’t get a gun, and would you then be screaming for knife control? A steel pipe? A baseball bat? A large rock? It is NOT the fault of the tool he chose. It IS the fault of this monster who should have been behind bars. And it is also partly the fault of the system that says locking up violent criminals is unfair.

Hat tip to The Other McCain who asks, “Do we or do we not care about violence against women?”

This guy had been perpetrating crime his entire adult life. He was only 21 and yet had already been charged with at least four different crimes, so we must ask: Who posted his $15,000 bond after he assaulted the woman he eventually murdered? Why are obviously dangerous criminals being set free to commit more violence? And why aren’t feminists paying any attention to this atrocity? Oh, wait . . . intersectionality.
