True Stories Of Armed Citizens Defending Themselves

Citizens of the United States of America end up defending themselves with their own legally owned guns millions of times a year. Usually it's an American defending their home and family from criminal scumbags. I know that anti-gun, anti-Constitutional Rights activists will never believe it but these true stories do sometimes find their way into the press.

At first, NRA Life member Norman McBride assumed his dogs were barking at the deer that frequent his rural property. The dogs persisted, however, so McBride investigated. Police say that as he stepped onto his front porch, he was alarmed to hear someone breaking into his shed. McBride retrieved a pistol and a flashlight, and hurried to the shed as his wife phoned police. Discovering the shed's padlock broken, McBride shone his flashlight inside and demanded that anyone within come out. Two camouflage-clad men and one juvenile advanced toward McBride, but they put their hands up and waited for police when they saw his gun. "The law officers thanked [me] several times," McBride wrote in a letter to the NRA, adding that his 2-year-old son is a fourth-generation NRA Life member. (Vandalia Leader, Vandalia, MO., 04/14/09)

Suddenly awakened by the sound of someone removing the screen from her bedroom window, a woman quietly fled to her son's room and woke him. "I got up, grabbed my gun and went to...her room," said the son, whose identity is being protected. Police say the suspect slid open the window, reached inside and pulled back the blinds. When he stuck his head inside, the son fired two shots. The intruder died nearby. (The Sun Herald, Biloxi, Miss., 04/24/09)

Police say a 26-year-old man was filling a prescription at a pharmacy's drive-through window when two women approached his car. One of the women pulled a gun and tried to pull the trigger. For some reason, the woman's gun would not fire, but the man had a gun of his own - and unlike his assailant's, it was legally possessed and fully functional. He drew his firearm and fired two shots, causing the woman to fall to the ground. The man disarmed his assailant and phoned police, who will charge the woman after her release from the hospital.

Three Eastern Washington University seniors had no idea their rental home was about to be targeted by a couple of career criminals with convictions for bank robbery, theft and other charges. Police say the armed men entered the home seeking riches. "I think these people thought there might be more valuables in the house than there actually were," said police detective John Miller. The alleged intruders did not find gold, but they did find lead. One of the college students retrieved a firearm and shot one of the men, causing both suspects to flee. Police found the wounded man in a nearby yard and arrested his accomplice two days later. (Spokesman Review, Spokane, Wash., 04/01/09)

A family was relaxing at home when their evening took a terrifying twist: a deranged man began pounding on the door and shouting obscenities. The homeowner ushered his brother, wife and children into a bedroom and locked them inside. According to police, he then loaded his double-barrel, 12-ga. shotgun and braced for the suspect's entry. The intruder smashed a sliding-glass door using a wrought iron patio chair and entered the home, but the homeowner wasn't going to let the intruder get any closer to his family. He emptied both barrels, killing the intruder. "When I heard someone tried to break in, I was just grateful he had a gun to protect his family," said a neighbor. "There's a reason the Second Amendment exists. We support gun rights and we would have done the same thing." (Roanoke Times, Roanoke, Va., 04/12/09)

Just as she was about to take a shower, a Seabrook homeowner heard "loud crashing" noises. She grabbed her pistol and came face-to-face with an intruder who had kicked in her back door. Gun in hand, the homeowner told the burglar to stay put while she called the police, but he took off running. Police later arrested the suspect at a nearby hotel. (Portsmouth Herald, Portsmouth, N.H., 04/15/09)

Linda Schultz Russo was at home when, out of nowhere, a disgruntled former employee of her pizza business breached the back door by firing a shotgun through it. Police say Russo was bleeding after the blast, but still had the presence of mind to fight back, running for her .40-cal. pistol and firing a barrage of shots at the intruder. The wounded man fled the scene. Russo was airlifted to a hospital for treatment and will fully recover. Her attacker will be arrested pending his release from the hospital. (Treasure Coast Newspapers, Fort Pierce, Fla., 04/16/09)

Don't be fooled by the anti-gun crowd which includes President Barack Obama, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and many of the people appointed to positions in Obama's administration. Disarming the law-abiding public does nothing to decrease crime. Disarming the public only increases the safety of criminals who would do you harm and increase the ability of the government to become more dictatorial.

Do your part to protect your rights. Join the NRA.

Big Surprise - PETA Wishes PBO Hadn't Swatted That Fly

Ok, this definitely falls into the category of "I couldn't make this stuff up". On June 16th, during another of Barack Obama's seemingly endless TV appearances, he swatted and killed a fly that had been buzzing around him. It's actually one of the few times I've agreed with him but he's getting grief from everyone's favorite fringe animal group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Yes, PETA is upset that the Apologizer In Chief killed that poor, innocent, feces-eating creature (which isn't an animal).

According to PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich, "We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals" and "We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals." And, they must mean it too because they're sending the President the "Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher", a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside so it can land on more feces before landing on your food.

For his part in this matter President Obama didn't seem apologetic at all for killing the filthy creature. In fact he said
"That was pretty impressive, wasn't it? I got the sucker." Yeah, he actually gloated about doing something any five year-old can do.

I'm not really even sure what else to say about this, it makes my head hurt.

Elderly Woman In Maine Chases Away Armed Intruder

Don't you just love that headline from June 16th? And the best's true. A 77 year old woman in Maine was told by her daughter that an armed intruder was in their home. The 77 year old woman, apparently no shrinking violet, got her own gun and chased off the armed male intruder. How cool is that?

It's pretty cool and I bring it up for a couple of reasons. First, the anti-Constitutional Rights (anti-gun) crowd including The Brady Campaign, ABC's 20/20, and many other anti-gun types do their best to deny that people can defend themselves with guns they have the Constitutional Right to own. In this case the armed intruder, a much younger male, was already in the home - calling 911 wasn't a good option. Further, it's unlikely that the elderly woman could physically beat the intruder even if she has taken the self-defense course at the community center. A gun was her best option. Second, this instance and many others show how idiotic some politicians are when it comes to guns. For instance, in Washington, D.C. they now (since DC v Heller) allow residents to buy pistols and keep them in their home but, they must be unloaded and disassembled or be unloaded and have a trigger lock in place at all times. Legislation has been proposed in some state legislatures that would mandate similar measures. Would the elderly woman in Maine have time to assemble and load her gun with an armed intruder in her home?

Unfortunately, your God-given right to defend your life is under assault by power hungry politicians who will try to convince you that disarming you is a good thing. Don't let people who want to rule you convince you can't defend yourself with a gun. If a 77 year old woman in Maine can do it you can too. Speak up and defend your right to self-defense.

Even The Russians Are On To PBO

How is it that I can see it, you can see it, your tired old lap dog can see it but Obama supporters who decry the various "isms" like Marxism, Communism, and Socialism (as applied to Obama) can't see it? It's so clear that we are speeding away from the Capitalism that helped make this the greatest nation on earth that the Russian newspaper Pravda is commenting on it. For those of you with little knowledge of the Cold War Era, Pravda was pretty much the official propaganda arm of the Communist Party...they know Marxism when they see it. I've placed the article from Pravda below:

"It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a Burger King burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama (emphasis added). His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?"

What more needs saying? They recognize their own.
