Harris County, Texas is one of the more populated counties in the nation, with a population of just over 4 million. The county seat is Houston, the fourth largest city in the United States. It also has the dubious distinction of being the county with the 4th highest number of murders, according to the Crime Prevention Research Center.
Like many large cities, there are numerous smaller cities and communities surrounding Houston. One of those is the community known as Cliffmarshall, located northwest of Houston.
Tuesday night, around 9:15pm, a homeowner was gladly returning home from when he was ambushed by three thugs. They pistol-whipped him and forced him to let them into the house. Once inside, the intruders force the man, his wife and his two kids, ages 5 and 6, to lie on the floor. While the intruders looked for items to steal, the homeowner managed to get his gun and began shooting at the intruders, who also shot back as they fled the house.
The homeowner called the police who responded to the home and to a call from a hospital reporting a man was dropped off and suffering from a bullet wound. The homeowner only sustained minor injuries from the pistol-whipping and none of his family were harmed. The intruder that had been shot is expected to recover and police are looking for the two suspects.
Jacksonville, Florida is a major seaport city of almost 1 million people. It’s located in the northeast corner of the state, just below the Georgia border. Like Houston, Jacksonville has its suburbs and communities, one of which is Durkeeville.
Around 10am Wednesday morning, another thug followed a woman to her home and then forced himself inside. He planned to rob the woman, when she grabbed her gun and shot the man in torso. He was able to flee the home. After leaving the house, the intruder called 9-1-1 to report that he had been shot. Emergency personnel responded and took the man to the hospital where he is recovering from his wound.
Shortly after the intruder called 9-1-1, police received a call from a woman reporting that she had shot an intruder in her home. The location of the woman’s call was fairly close to where the man had called 9-1-1. They responded and talked to the woman. Then they went to the hospital and took the wounded intruder into custody.
These two incidents are only a few of the many reports of homeowners using their guns to protect themselves and their families from intruders. Hundreds and thousands of homeowners have used their legal firearms for self-defense.
However, liberals like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Michael Bloomberg, continue to push to make it harder for people like the homeowners mentioned above to protect themselves. They would prefer to see everyone be totally defenseless. They would prefer to see wives and daughters molested and raped by home intruders, rather than give them the right to protect themselves with a gun.
That’s the question every person in the United States needs to be asking anti-gun liberals – why do they want to deny Americans the right to protect themselves? They’ll deny it at first but if you continue to press them and listen to their attempts to justify their views, you’ll see that most of them just don’t want you to have a gun, which means leaving you defenseless. Once that is pointed out, they really have nothing more they can say.
