I saw this news yesterday at The Blaze and was pretty impressed that a senior couple was ready and willing to blast a home invader as he attempted to break down their door while they ate breakfast.
And, I fully expected by today to have a name and photo of the invader who the homeowners shot dead especially because we are told he was on parole from a previous home invasion arrest.
I sure couldn’t find a name or a photo! The story is nevertheless worth posting as a cautionary tale. Many of us would be ready for an invasion after dark, but heck in the a.m. the doors are open, at least in my house, and weapons aren’t just laying around at the breakfast table.
Of course you could be one of those families I heard about recently who has a 9mm home defense handgun in most every room (presumably with no kiddos living there).
Armed man on parole kicks down door, enters home while couple in their 60s eats breakfast. But homeowner also has a gun — and fatally shoots intruder.
A California couple in their 60s were having breakfast Tuesday morning when they heard a knock at their door, followed by an attempt to kick down the door after they didn’t respond to the knock, Fairfield police said.
What happened next?
A Facebook post from Councilwoman Catherine Moy indicated the homeowner saw the suspect on his Ring surveillance camera.
The husband, fearing for his life and his wife’s safety, grabbed his legally owned gun to defend them, police said. Moy’s post said it was a .357 Magnum.
The intruder then broke down the door completely and entered the residence, police said.
With that, the husband fired at the intruder, who fled from the home, police said. Moy’s post said the homeowner shot twice at the intruder and hit him in the chest area.
Authorities said the intruder [who was found with a semi-automatic handgun.—ed] was a 27-year-old male from nearby Suisun City who was on parole for a violent crime in Alameda County. KTVU reported that the crime for which he was on parole was a home invasion.
It looks like in less than his first one hundred days, Biden has an Islamic terrorist attack on his hands, but you will likely never hear those words uttered.
Just a nut with a gun, move along, nothing to see.
Of course, a week ago the nut with a gun was a white guy perpetrating a hate crimeagainst Asians.
This week it’s a ‘new American,’ a Syrian Muslim, whose innocent victims are all white and you likely won’t see the phrase “hate crime” anywhere outside of conservative media.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, the Left will rage, but their fury will be directed at the weapon and not the man. (Biden will have his excuse.)
The Syrian immigrant is just a nut who had gone over the edge, driven there by Islamophobic America. And, they may go one step further and blame it on (understandable to them) pent-up Trump hatred.
Here is just one of many stories you will see today (this one at CBS) about the slaughter quoting Biden’s reaction:
At the White House, President Biden said another city has been “scarred by gun violence” and called on Congress to pass gun control measures. “I just can’t imagine what the families are feeling, the victims whose futures were stolen from them, from their families, their loved ones, who know have to struggle to go on and try to make sense of what’s happened.”
There was a delay by authorities in announcing the name of the suspect, so a bunch of Lefties went crazy on social media blaming whitey for the shooting.
Ahmad al Aliwi Alissa isn’t a ‘white man,’ so can we make assumptions about what motivated him?
We know now that the man who shot up a grocery store Monday in Boulder, Colorado, is an immigrant from Syria named Ahmad al Aliwi Alissa. In the context of recent history, this means there’s reason to think he might be a Muslim terrorist. But saying that aloud will get you called a racist by the media.
For now, we’ll just have to pretend that this is another “lone wolf” who in no way fits into the totally not-real pattern (according to the media) of mass violence perpetrated by Muslim extremists in places as far-flung as Mumbai, Rouen, and Chattanooga and as close as Miami, San Bernardino and New York.
If Aliwi Alissa were white, we could at least assume, without any evidence, like the media are doing with the recent killing spree in Atlanta, that this was an act of white supremacism. Instead, it looks like we’re back to square one.
Gasp! Maybe he was a pro-Trump anti-masker! Opinion writer Eddie Scarry continues….
Of course, before the shooter was identified by police, liberals had been very eager to draw early conclusions about him. They were 100% certain he was white and perhaps even an anti-masker — i.e., a Trump supporter.
I’m serious. Liberal journalist Kurt Eichenwald *** mused on Twitter that the details might reveal that the shooting, which left 10 people dead, was an episode of “anti-masker violence.”
Meena Harris, the niece of Vice President Kamala Harris, tweeted immediately after the shooting that “violent white men are the greatest terrorist threat to our country.” She anticipated that Aliwi Alissa might be a real terrorist, but not the kind that Democrats would rather not acknowledge.
Kurt Eichenwald’s COVID Freakout: ‘I Want to Find an Antimasker and Beat Them to Death’
(Islamic terrorists, not so much…..)
Eichenwald thinks the country is insane!
Is there a chance in hell that we will hear the truth if this later tweet speculation, that Biden provoked an Islamic terror attack, turns out to be on the mark?
There is so much news and commentary about this horrible event and I have a doctor appointment today with little time to look further. So please send some links with updates via the comment section here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’
I would love to know if anyone sees anything about how his Syrian family came to be living here.
And, of course, pray for the innocent victims’ families.
First, here is the news from North Carolina at Breitbart:
12-Year-Old Shoots Alleged Intruder to Save Grandmother
A 12-year-old Goldsboro, North Carolina, boy shot and killed an alleged home intruder Saturday night after that intruder allegedly shot his grandmother.
KIRO reports that two alleged intruders entered the home, both of whom fled when the 12-year-old grandson opened fire. One of the two, 19-year-old Khalil Herring, died the grandson shot him.
ABC 11 reports that officers responded to a 911 call Saturday morning just after 1 a.m. and found the 73-year-old grandmother with a gunshot wound. They discovered Herring “at the intersection of William Street and Elm Street,” noting he was also suffering from a gunshot wound.
Both the grandmother and Herring were transported to a hospital. The grandmother survived but Herring succumbed to his injuries.
Last night when I should have been doing some work, I spent time (not wasted!) scrolling around at thePrepper blogsand although the media was already reporting it, I saw the news at Personal Defense Worldabout the Biden administration’s plans to go after your guns.
What! So you would be at the mercy of those gang bangers I told you about in my previous post this morning?
Here is Personal Defense World‘s story yesterday about the latest Chairman Joe plan to strip you of your rights. One more thing for you to get ready to do—defend the Second Amendment.
President Biden Calls on Congress for ‘Commonsense Gun Law Reform’
We finally heard the shot we’ve been expecting. President Joe Biden formally announced his plan to enact strict gun control policies today. The White House press release marks a move widely expected since Biden’s inauguration.
“Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets,” Biden said in a release.
Pros And Cons of Various Firearms For Home Defense
So, you’ve been watching the crime-filled news. You’ve probably heard stories from neighbors or friends about home break-ins. Maybe you’ve even been the victim of a home invasion. And you’ve finally decided to purchase a firearm. Great!
You are one step closer to being safer in your home. But now you have to decide which weapon you should purchase: handgun, assault rifle, or shotgun. Everybody you ask will have an opinion. But the choice must be yours and yours only.
Call a local gun shop and find out what training you need and what the legal requirements are in your state. I am sure you will find them eager to help you get started. And, don’t be embarrassed about being a newbie—there were millions of you in that same place in 2020.
