3 armed intruders barged into a house in Jacksonville, Florida on Wednesday, but thanks to a gun owner who was willing to put his life on the line, all of the roommates are alive.
“They barged in guns pointed at us screaming get on the ground, where is your money, where is your money. And the next thing I know boom, boom, boom, boom,” said “Big John” who lives in the home and did not want to be identified.
One of the people inside the home fired shots, hitting at least one of the intruders, 24-year-old Aaron Antwan Harris.
Harris was taken to UF Health Jacksonville, where he later died.
A tense minute or two is how “Percy” described what unfolded inside the home where six men were watching a movie.
“Then I heard bullets. I don’t know who is firing and then it is silent to scared to look up, but I do. I see my friends looking up as well and I see a man face down,” said Percy who was visiting friends.
Police are still looking for the other suspects in the case.
According to Lauri-Ellen Smith with JSO, it was determined that the deceased person, who has not yet been identified pending family notification, was also a suspect in the home invasion.
Here is yet another story of a gun owner saving lives, but you will not see Michael Bloomberg start a bus tour to bring attention to these lives saved. You will, however hear the names of the 2 intruders who were shot mentioned at a gun control rally for the Mayors Against Illegal Guns. After all, if they are willing to memorialize the name of a terrorist at a gun control rally (you can read about that here), why not read the names of 2 criminals who were shot while simply doing their job.
But you see the gun control crowd doesn’t care about how many lives are saved by guns. That’s not their agenda. They want to get rid of guns so anything that doesn’t help their cause is completely ignored. You won’t hear about this story through the main stream media so be sure to share it with as many people as you can.
