With violent crime on the rise across the country, millions of Americans have chosen to embrace their Second Amendment rights for the first time in their lives, knowing that whether they are the target of an would-be robber, car thief or invader. police will most likely arrive in time to write a report but not to prevent an attack. It is not a blow to the police, by the way, just an acknowledgment of reality. Police response times are becoming slower in many jurisdictions due to staffing problems, meaning the odds of cops showing up while a burglary or home invasion is still ongoing. For those who are concerned about their personal safety, there is little point in letting the police protect them. Self-protection is a much better option and in the past few days we have seen several defensive uses of guns involving homeowners who have done just that.
In Atlanta, Georgia, police say a resident who shot a potential thief will not be charged.
Atlanta police said officers were called home on 134 Howell Street Monday afternoon in reference to an affected person. Two men with gunshot wounds were found on the spot.
One of the men died instantly and the other, the owner of the house, was taken to the hospital and classified as stable.
The police determined that the dead man climbed on the window of the house and assaulted the owner of the house. The owner of the house then shot the man, killing him. The owner of the house remained on site and cooperated with the investigation.
Then there is the woman in Swatara Township, Pennsylvania, who defended herself from a man trying to break into her home on Tuesday night.
According to police, a man was found with minor injuries to his left arm. Upon further investigation, they found that the man had attempted to break into an apartment occupied by an acquaintance.
Police say the woman shot the intruder while trying to enter the residence. The injuries sustained are due to a glass that broke when the bullet hit a window.
The man was transported to the hospital for treatment.
The woman who shot the suspect will not be charged.
And a homeowner in Wichita, Kansas, who shot and injured an intruder Monday night.
Police said a 40-year-old man was breaking through the windows of the house when he was shot by the owner of the house. The owner of the house, who did not want to be identified, told Eyewitness News that he did not want to shoot but was defending himself.
“I was on the phone and I was telling the cops, this guy. Get here. Please come here. I don’t want to shoot this man. Please come here. “
What were we saying about the police response times? As quickly as the agents arrived, he wasn’t quick enough to take the suspect into custody before he allegedly attacked the homeowner.
The homeowner said the suspect started hitting a neighbor’s house. When the owner of the house told the man to stop, he walked over and tried to slam the door with a pole.
“I threw 2 bricks through my window and tried to crawl through my window and he told me he was going to kill me and other stuff. So, unfortunately, I had to shoot him. “
The man was taken to a local hospital with injuries described as “critical”. As for the owner of the house, he has a message for the suspect.
“I pray to God he survives and makes it and gets the help he needs and don’t try to get back here or the same result will happen.”
Crime isn’t the worst that has ever been in the United States, but since riots and riots broke out in dozens of cities last summer, we’ve been heading in the wrong direction at breakneck speed. Home break-ins and invasions are becoming more common in many communities, and I hope these three individuals who have been able to protect themselves from those who wanted to harm them will push more Americans to think seriously about their personal safety and their right to armed self-defense.
