While gun control activists are still trying to convince the American people that guns are never used in self-defense but only in mass shootings, yet another intruder has bitten the dust after being faced with an armed homeowner ready to protect his home.

In fact, this is the 5th time in just two weeks that a Detroit homeowner has used lethal force to protect his home and family.   You can read our other recent stories on Detroit homeowners defending their homes with firearms here.

In this case two men broke into the Detroit home on Thursday at 12:30pm, in broad daylight.  The homeowner grabbed his gun and fired at the suspects, hitting one of them.  While the one suspect got away the other collapsed in the driveway and died on the scene.

According to DeadlineDetroit.com,

In January, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said criminals would think twice if more citizens were armed.

“When we look at the good community members who have concealed weapons permits, the likelihood they’ll shoot is based on a lack of confidence in this Police Department,” Craig said at a press conference.

Unlike most big-city police officials, Craig said he began believing that legal gun owners can deter crime when he became police chief in Portland, Maine, in 2009.

“Coming from California” — where he served on the LAPD for 28 years — “where it takes an act of Congress to get a concealed weapon permit, I got to Maine, where they give out lots of CCWs (carrying concealed weapon permits), and I had a stack of CCW permits I was denying; that was my orientation.

“I changed my orientation real quick. Maine is one of the safest places in America. Clearly, suspects knew that good Americans were armed.”

No scientific research supports the argument that armed citizens deter crime.

You have to love that last line the author of this story puts in there — “No scientific research supports the argument that armed citizens deter crime.”  Really?  So the very fact that this home owner deterred this crime from going beyond a break-in was not a deterrent?  I think the homeowner would disagree with this “scientific” analysis.

Detroit homeowners have sent a clear message to any would-be-intruders who actually follow the news.  The problem is that these stories rarely get reported beyond the local news and are usually quickly covered up or ignored by the main stream media.  After all, if it doesn’t support a gun control agenda then it’s just not worth reporting to an anti-gun media.

    You would think that these intruders would learn by now with five break-ins in two weeks – the gun owners mean business and intend to protect their homes and their families. They need to wise up and find a decent job instead of making their living breaking into homes. You have no right to other peoples property, period. Throw your guns away and become a reliable law-abiding citizen – you will find you will be much safer and probably live a lot longer.

      If all law abiding US Citizens were required to carry, all crime would be eliminated. That is gun control I would support.

      • Evan Freeman says

        Stephen, you can’t honestly believe all crime would be stopped with more ccws? Some of the worst crime comes from people who wear suits to work – a la Bernie Madoff.

    Kentucky’s approach of explicitly defending gun rights in its constitution makes it possible for citizens to defend themselves against criminal offenders without having to worry about being nailed onto a cross afterward. I’m proud to be a Kentuckian.

      And, they will never learn because they are the low-information voter that do not listen to the news or try to keep themselves informed because, if they did, they might think twice about breaking into a home after hearing a number of people like them have died trying to do the same thing. Well, here I ago assuming if they did hear about this it would curtail them because I am assuming they will use common sense where people like these individuals do not use common sense. Sorry – - forget what I wrote above; however, I bet you they can name you who is playing in Spiderman or Transformers or most of the hip-hop artists’ name but cannot name you one person in the Senate or in President Obama’s administration, except for President Obama. Sad.

    FBI provides and publishes studies as to armed civilians detering crime and gun control vs crime rate these studies arent widely distributed to main stream media due to corporate ownership of the media. And political agenda mainly our musslim presidents anti gun anti constitutional campaigning

    I think the one who puts out the Scientific reports should be made to move to Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, or Detroit to the worse side of town to live without a gun. Let their neighbors put up signs pointing toward their house saying Scientific study going on here, I don’t have a gun, but, I do have valuables and a family.

    If gun control is so great and you believe that less guns mean less gun violence, Let’s have a “Police Disarmament Week” ! That will certainly take a lot of guns off the street. They did it in England and violent crime and homicide only went up 800% !! YOUR GUN CONTROL ARGUEMENT IS INVALID !!!!

    • says

      Saying that the crime in England went up 800% because of a gun ban is a complete falsity.

      Gun violence has gone down in England since the handgun ban in 1990.

      There are many differences between England and the US, one of which is how violent crime is registered.

      I would like to see your facts buecause when i looked that the homicides it appeaars to have droped in the last decade. also the UK murder rate is 5 times lower than the US.

      • says

        They aren’t OUR facts. They are THE facts. You can see them here: http://johnrlott.blogspot.com/2012/12/so-did-piers-morgan-and-christiane.html but i suggest you do your own research which has been well documented. You can’t compare the UK murder rate with the US because even before the gun ban was instituted in England the murder rate was lower so you can’t use the gun ban to advance an argument for gun control. Despite the surge in gun sales in the last 10 years the homicide rate has dropped in the US. After the 1996 gun ban in the UK homicides skyrockted, but you won’t hear Piers Morgan admit this.

    i suppose the criminals and politicians want to outlaw locks on our homes along with guns .
