Homeowner fires on three intruders, killing two

So, you think you armed and prepared for anything. You had best think again.

By Chris Tisch – 07-10-2020

WESLEY CHAPEL, FL — Two armed intruders were shot dead and a third was wounded when a homeowner fired on them early Friday, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.

The homeowner said he was inside his home playing video games when at about 12:43 a.m. he heard the glass of his laundry room door shatter, according to a sheriff’s report. He saw an arm reach inside to unlock the door. Then the homeowner said he saw a masked man walk in and aim a gun at him.

The homeowner said he grabbed his Glock 9mm pistol, which was just a few feet away, and fired several times at the intruder. He saw the intruder fall down, the report said.

Then a second masked intruder entered the house, and the homeowner said he fired at him, too. That intruder also collapsed.

The masked men were aiming their weapons at the homeowner when they were shot, said Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco.

The homeowner said he then saw a third intruder enter, the report said. The homeowner started firing again, but said his Glock jammed. Then he said he grabbed a Kriss Vector 10mm semi-automatic rifle, but didn’t fire it. The third intruder had run away.

The homeowner said he called his neighbor for help and told him he had just shot two intruders. While the homeowner was on the phone with 911, he said, he heard his neighbor yelling outside: The neighbor had detained the third intruder, who was wounded, at gunpoint in the front yard. The homeowner went outside to help.

The victim advised he shot all three intruders because they were armed and forced entry into his home and he believed they were going to kill him,” said an arrest report.

When deputies arrived, the two intruders were pronounced dead at the scene. The third was taken to the hospital for medical treatment.

Tramel was questioned at Tampa General Hospital but denied involvement, deputies said. Then he told them that Casado wanted to rob the homeowner, according to his arrest report, so he rode with the two men. Thy wore masks and gloves and armed themselves.

EDITORIAL COMMENT:

If you think having taken a ‘concealed carry class’, owning a little pistol and taking a couple of trips to a range to shoot at paper target hanging from a wire, prepares you for this type of situation, you are delusional.

You need to have defensive shooting training. You need to have a defensive firearm. You need to have a defensive mindset.

Unless you are a Navy Seal, an Army Ranger or a retired law enforcement officer or you have not had defensive firearms training and you think you can defend yourself and your loved ones against the type of attack described above, you are living in a fantasy world.

Learn to defend your life and the lives of your loved one with official NRA firearms training.

First and Second Amendments Collide

Mayor Kimberly Gardner: I am alarmed at the events that occurred over the weekend, where peaceful protesters were met by guns and a violent assault,” “We must protect the right to peacefully protest, and any attempt to chill it through intimidation or threat of deadly force will not be tolerated.”

Albert Watkins, the McCloskeys’ attorney, told Fox News that under Missouri’s Castle Doctrine, a person has “the absolute unmitigated right to protect his or her castle or family while on their property.” He said the protesters were trespassing, “damaging and destroying private property and acting in a threatening and hostile fashion.”

“If Kimberly Gardner wants to press charges against two attorneys who are protecting their home and their family and themselves on their own property, I will tell you that it will be nothing short of the proverbial clusterf— with the ensuing assertions that she’s doing this for political purposes,” Watkins said.

“And I will tell you that as a person, I don’t believe that to be what she is doing,” Watkins added. “I just believe she probably has a difficult time reading the English language.”

Sheriff Grady Judd: “The ducks need to shoot back?

Sheriff Grady Judd:   If Criminals Break In, I’ll ‘Shoot Them So Much You Can Read a Newspaper Through Them’

By Bailey Duran | July 10, 2020

(CNS News) — Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, who encourages law-abiding citizens to buy guns and learn how to shoot them properly, recently said that if criminals break into his house, he will “shoot them so much that you can read a newspaper through them.”

Sheriff Judd made his remarks on Radio America’s The Dana Show, hosted by Dana Loesch, a conservative and strong defender of the Second Amendment.

During the program, Sheriff Judd explained that citizens have a constitutional right to defend themselves and their homes or businesses. This is particularly relevant given the recent rioting and looting that has occurred in many cities following the death of George Floyd.

“The truth is, they [citizens] have a right to protect themselves in their home and they should,” said Sheriff Judd. “Then you have some in the media going, ‘oh, well he’s inflaming.’”

“I tell you what, I am not inflaming,” he said, “but I am making it abundantly clear that I am encouraging our folks to prepare themselves to be safe at home, and if anyone—any robber, any looter—thinks that they can break into your home and you’re going to stand there and watch it? You’re going to let them break in and beat you up and take your stuff? Well, that’s just craziness!” J

Judd continued, “I can assure you: Someone breaks into my home, I’m going to shoot them, and I’m going to shoot them a lot.”

“I’m going to shoot them so much that you can read a newspaper through them,” he said.

“And that’s my recommendation to the other people in our community,” he added. “I’m talking about real looters, real criminals, and real robbers.”

He later stressed, “you should never use deadly force against someone else unless you believe that it’s imminent, that you’re in great danger of being significantly hurt and/or getting killed.”

In 2017, a year after the deadly Pulse nightclub shooting in Florida, Sheriff Judd urged the citizens of Polk County to get a gun and learn how to use it. “The armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back,” he said. “He plans on having a gun, doing all the shooting, and you’re just a sitting duck.”

“Well, the ducks need to shoot back,” he finished.
