Home invader dies from gunshot, misogyny

OK mainly from the gun shot

His smart mouth cost him his life. RCSD: Man shot, killed by homeowner during break-in.

The homeowner told deputies the man was attempting to get into her home through a window.

When she told him she had a gun, she said he threatened to come in and use it on her. She then fired her gun, striking the man.

Idiot!

Armed citizen shoots, kills, active shooter

The Cult of Gun Control will be heart broken, their poor, poor false narrative

A woman was shot and killed at a Tulsa, Oklahoma shopping center Friday night after she opened fire on customers. While police are still investigating a possible motive and haven’t released the woman’s identify, the Tulsa World reports that the woman’s rampage was apparently stopped by a concealed carry holder before she was able to inflict any injuries

Video reportedly showed the woman was involved in an earlier altercation in the parking lot. The woman left the shopping center and returned about three minutes later, when she pulled a gun and opened fire, according to the news release.

The concealed carry permit holder reportedly returned fire and was later questioned and released at the department’s detective division.

Yes online dating can be dangerous for men too

Remember fellas, bad people come in both genders. Luckily for this man, he was prepared

An Atlanta man thought he was going to meet a woman for a date, but instead found himself in a shootout with strangers in his home Wednesday morning. According to Fox 5 in Atlanta, Tikoyo Lamonz Reeves connected with a woman on an online dating site, and invited her over to hang out. When she got there, she had brought along two uninvited guests; a woman who came in the front door with her, and a man who snuck in the back of the home armed with a rifle.

Atlanta Police Captain F. Turker says the Reeves’ dog began barking at the armed man, alerting the homeowner to the fact that there were actually three strangers in his home, and he grabbed his gun and exchanged fire with the home invader.

This man was very lucky for several reasons. He had a dog that alerted him of a third person, and he had a firearm close at hand. He was also foolish, very foolish to meet a first date at his house. And he should have never allowed his “date” into the home with an uninvited guest. Criminals will use any avenue to victimize their intended targets. Using online dating is no different, and men can be targets as well as women.

Wrong store!

An armed robbery at a North Carolina convenience store turned deadly for the teenager who held up the family-owned business when a customer and concealed carry holder drew their own gun and fired several shots.

18-year old Malik Harris entered the store on Saturday morning armed with a gun, and began threatening workers and customers.

“There were three or four customers in the store. And the guy came in and put the gun on all the customers, made everyone come [behind the counter] at gunpoint,” said Adil Khawaja.

While the store employees and customers were huddled behind the register, another unsuspecting person walked into the store.

“He grabbed her by the neck, brought her back [behind the counter] at gunpoint,” Khawaja said.

As the robber was distracted, one of the customers pulled out his own gun and fired at Harris four to five times, striking the would-be robber and ending the threat. Harris was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

Another hero that noted Statist Shorty Bloomberg would joyfully disarm stops a violent thug

An armed citizen in Florida was in the right place at the right time to help a group of strangers in desperate need of a Good Samaritan. According to WINK-TV, the group was hanging out at Rusty’s Bar in Cape Coral, Florida last Thursday when a man identified as Henry Lesniak, Jr. began buying them drinks. Ashley Gallagher was there with her daugher-in-law Emily, and says the encounter turned from harmless to terrifying in the blink of an eye.

“I think he was trying to hit on my daughter-in-law and definitely get her to go home with him, or whatever it was. And I think when he realized that wasn’t going to happen, that’s when he said we were taking advantage of him by spending his money,” Ashley said.

“All of a sudden, like, ‘boom,’ he turned violent, angry,” Emily said.

The group tried to leave and get in their car and that’s when, investigators say, Lesniak chased after them.

“That’s when we saw the white pickup truck and honestly, like, he had no choice but to say, like, yes. We kind of just screamed, ‘help,’ begging him to let us into his truck,” Emily said.

Amir Rossi was the driver of the pickup truck. He says he wasn’t sure what was happening when the women suddenly appeared by his truck shouting for help, but he quickly responded.

“It just got heated and it got heated so quick,” Rossi said. “They ran in front of my car, they jumped in my truck and they were just like, ‘Go! Go! Go!” And the next thing I know, this guy’s reaching in my car trying to grab me up and that’s when I got my firearm and at that point, he realized that I had a gun and he backed off the car and he disappeared.”

But the story doesn’t end there. Police say Lesniak then rammed the good Samaritan’s truck several times.

That’s when Rossi pulled out his gun, fired several shots into the back of Lesniak’s truck and held him at gunpoint until police arrived.

Shorty Bloomberg should have to explain why he would have good people disarmed. I imagine this family, and so many others saved BECAUSE of an American carrying a firearm, and yes, I am one of those who has defended myself with a firearm would not grasp why Bloomberg prefers helpless victims to self-defense.
