Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

Via Zendo Deb

The Left doesn’t want the young to be able to defend themselves. But sometimes that is both necessary and right. Police: 17-year-old shoots, kills armed home invader in Cobb County.

Police said three people with guns tried to break into and rob a home on Olive Springs Road around 9 p.m.

Machavellia Bagsby, 21, was shot and killed by a 17-year-old juvenile who lived at the home. Bagsby died at the scene.

Great point about people allowing their kids access to firearms, and “safe-storage” laws. That choice is best left to parents, not activist politicians who pass cookie cutter, statist laws, or activists district attorneys either. 

Pennsylvania Democrat repeats lies, scolds people buying guns

Rep. Dan Frankel is losing his mind because GUNS BAD

So many Pennsylvanians bought guns last week that our state background check system crashed. Twice.

In fact, 4,342 of you bought or transferred a gun or applied for a license to carry a gun on March 17 alone, according to a press release from the Pennsylvania State Police. Of course, those are just some of the gun purchases, because Pennsylvania’s laws allow the private purchase of long guns with no background checks at all.

Let us fact check that first part Pennsylvania’s laws allow the private purchase of long guns with no background checks at all.

Ah no. ALL firearm sales require a background check, it is FEDERAL LAW! Now back to the usual anti-gun propaganda

The urge to self-protect makes sense.

Unfortunately, if you bought a gun last week, your home is now less safe.

REALLY? As I have noted my guns pretty much sit there, and do nothing, they are kinda lazy to be honest. I mean Rep. Dan Frankel says guns can hurt people.

There are three ways that a gun can hurt or kill someone in your house: homicide, suicide and accidents. Now, with your new gun in you home, every person in your household has a significantly higher chance of dying in one of those ways.

Sooooo, my guns are what? Plotting my demise? Planning to off my dog? What about the cat? He has hairball issues, will my guns make him have more hairballs? What about accidents? Will my Rugers plot to sabotage the stairs at the back door? Maybe my Springfield Armory will poison me because I like my Ruger and Sig better? Will my Sig make may fall in the shower? Will my Pretty silly questions these are. BUT, Frankel’s entire piece is nothing but scare tactics. Let us continue

On average, 350 children shoot themselves or someone else each year, according to an index of media reports maintained by Everytown, a gun regulation advocacy group. That’s just one reason that the American Academy of Pediatrics advises that the safest home for a child is one that is free of firearms.

That piece, done by an extremely biased group notes that there are 265 million legally owned firearms in America. 350 shootings is, statistically speaking very low. If Americans are so reckless with guns, these accidents would be much higher. It seems that the data shown argues that American gun owners are very safe. Yes these are all tragedies, and gun owners have an incredible amount to responsibility to be safe in handling/storing firearms. Again, these numbers suggest that we gun owners are being overwhelmingly responsible.

It is also true that education is key. Owning firearms with children in the home, or children who often visit comes with a supreme responsibility. The NRA, and other gun rights groups strongly support teaching gun safety in schools. The left, somehow cringes at this idea. Why, I cannot grasp. Perhaps the left hates guns more than they want kids to learn gun safety.

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.
