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.
