I “blame” the National Rife Association for completely screwing up the anti-gun narrative.
Three different homeowners in Detroit used guns to defend themselves against intruders this week.
Two suspects were shot and killed.
“I think it’s just a matter of the individual homeowners protecting themselves and finally catching up with the criminals in that enough is enough and they aren’t going to take it anymore,” said Detroit Police Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson.
The latest incident happened around 2:00 Saturday morning. Two men broke into a home on Toledo in southwest Detroit, armed with a tire iron. The intruders tried to knock out the homeowner, but the homeowner fired back with his gun. He shot them both and killed one of them, a 21-year-old man. The other man got away.
The second incident happened around 12:30 Saturday morning on Abington on Detroit’s west side. A woman had just pulled her car into the garage when a man with a gun appeared out of nowhere. She dropped her keys on the ground as a distraction and then reached for her own gun and shot and killed him.
These two incidents follow last week’s attempted home invasion stopped by a mother armed with a Hi-Point carbine. The three teens driven out of the home by gunfire were arrested.
Detroit Police Chief James Craig is a recent convert to believing in the importance of armed citizens in deterring crime. You have to think Craig considers this a very good week for the armed citizens of Detroit.
Wouldn’t you agree?
