Another example of lives saved because innocent, law-abiding people had a gun to protect themselves. This time, a 15-year old boy who protected himself, and his sister, with one of those vilified AR-15 Rifles.
And another example of a law-abiding citizen using a gun to protect himself – and in this case, his baby son.
This time an Ohio man with a Concealed & Carry Permit using his handgun to shoot a man trying to rob him with a gun. The victim’s baby was nearby. You won’t hear Barack Obama, Joe Biden, or Diane Feinstein citing this case.

I’d say this mother and her children are glad she had a gun when the intruder broke into their house.
A Georgia woman used a handgun to shoot a man who broke into her home using a crowbar. She was hiding in the attic with her two children when the intruder found them. She shot the intruder five times.
Another story you won’t hear the national media, or the Democrats, talk about. Lives saved because there was a gun in the home and a mother who knew how to use it.
A convicted felon killed two New York volunteer firefighters on Christmas Eve after luring them into an ambush by setting his home on fire. The man, who later killed himself, had served only 17 years in prison for murdering his own grandmother with a hammer in 1980:
WASHINGTON TIMES: An ex-convict killed two firefighters with the same caliber and make military-style rifle used in the Connecticut school massacre after typing a note pledging to burn down his neighborhood and “do what I like doing best, killing people,” police said Tuesday as another body, believed to be the gunman’s missing sister, was found.
William Spengler, 62, who served 17 years in prison for manslaughter in the 1980 hammer slaying of his grandmother, set his house afire before dawn Christmas Eve before taking a revolver, a shotgun and a semiautomatic rifle to a sniper position outside, Police Chief Gerald Pickering said.
The death toll rose to three as police revealed that a body believed to be the killer’s 67-year-old sister, Cheryl Spengler, was found in his fire-ravaged home.
Authorities say he sprayed bullets at the first responders, killing two firefighters and injuring two others who remained hospitalized Tuesday in stable condition, awake and alert and expected to survive. He then killed himself as seven houses burned on a sliver of land along Lake Ontario. . . . Read More
This is already being used by the anti-2nd Amendment zealots, who will ignore the reality that existing gun laws already made it illegal for this man to possess a firearm. But the law did not work. Neither would the kind of new restrictions they seek to impose on law-abiding Americans. My guess is that many of those same people would argue against the Death Penalty for someone who kills his own grandmother with a hammer. The real question is why this dangerous killer was ever allowed out of prison to kill again?
Wow. What a story. A 14-year old boy who acted bravely to protect himself and his brothers and sisters. This video report from the Phoenix area says the boy used a handgun to shoot an armed intruder who burst into the house through the front door in broad daylight yesterday:
FOX NEWS: A 14-year-old Phoenix boy shot an intruder who broke into his home while brandishing a gun as the teenager watched his three younger siblings, police said.
The teen and his brothers and sisters were at home alone at their residence at 55th Avenue and Baseline when a woman rang the doorbell Friday. The teen didn’t open the door because he didn’t recognize her, Police Officer James Holmes said Saturday.
Soon after, the teen heard a bang on the door, rushed his siblings upstairs and got a handgun from his parent’s bedroom. When he got to the top of the stairs, he saw a man breaking through the front door and point a gun at him.
The boy shot the 37-year-old man, who is in critical condition but expected to survive and be booked into jail. Holmes said the suspect did not get a shot off. He declined to release his name until he is booked into jail. . . . Read More
Here is video of Casey Anthony being sentenced to four years in prison for several charges of lying to police officers. But the sentences are to serve consecutively, and with credit for time served, she will be released next Wednesday, July 13, 2011.
Here is a video report on the news that CBS News’ correspondent Lara Logan “suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating” in Egypt last Friday, amidst the celebration in Cairo following Hosni Mubarak’s stepping down as President.
Logan was reportedly “surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration” – a mob of 200 people. A group of Egyptian women along with 20 Egyptian soldiers apparently came to her aid and enabled her to return to her hotel. Logan is reportedly now recovering in a U.S. Hospital.
I am confident many Americans join us in praying for Logan as she seeks to recover from this horrific attack.
Here is video of the Detroit Police releasing new sketches of a man they believe to be a serial rapist in the Detroit-area. Since New Year’s Day, there have been seven sexual assaults against African-American women and one attempted assault that police believe were carried out by this man. All but one of the attacks reportedly occurred when the women were either waiting at bus stops or going to and from the bus stop.
Below is an ABC News report on the attacks:
