Homeowner Holds Burglar at Gunpoint, What would have happened if gun ban passes?

 FEBRUARY 1, 2013

Credit to WSAZ News:


HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) — A gun toting homeowner took matters into his own hands when he found an alleged burglar in his house.

The incident happened at home in 1000 block of 23rd Street in Huntington late Tuesday night.

Huntington Police say they arrived at the house to find the homeowner holding John Allen Bryan, 37, of Huntington at gunpoint.

According to the criminal complaint, the man came home to find the front door wide open, the back door kicked open, and Bryan going through his belongings inside the house.

The complaint says Allen was piling electronics and other valuables on a blanket by the front door and in a trash can by the back door. Police also said that Allen had a necklace and two rings belonging to homeowner in the front pocket of his jeans.

Bryan was arrested at the scene and charged with burglary.

The question isn’t what happened, the question is, what would have happened if the gun ban passes?

This man would have arrived home to a burglar, would have had no gun to defend his house, and would have been at the mercy of the criminal. Because this gun ban doesn’t take guns from criminals, it takes them from law abiding citizens!

So how did he hold the burglar at gun point AND call the police? And the burglar didn't try to run for it when he was distracted? Really?

But to the question at hand, if the only way you know to protect yourself and your home is with a gun, well your too lazy to harden the target and not bright enough to plan in advance.

I think it's a quotation from the classic tome, "Running with Scissors for Dummies."

I think I need to add yet another weapon to my arsenal - a crossbow, like Daryl Dixon of "The Walking Dead".  :)

That is great that you have your own personal weapon manufacturer. Your hubby's business may grow exponentially, depending on how gun laws go.

Thanks ~ DH has hedge trimmers ... and swords (he's a knifemaker) ... and if he has a choice he prefers a bow and arrows or a good throwing knife (might be that Hopi ancestry).

Tonight he is giggling and trying to figure out if 'runs with scissors' is an old Indian translation for liberal or just dummies ...


Quoting SallyMJ:

"Especially unicorns!" said Greg Gutfeld of Red Eye and The Five, peering through his round, red glasses.

Great cartoon.

So does DH have a pair of 20 foot scissors, and kindergarten scissors as well, like us? Or is that too girly?

Quoting Farmlady09:

Darn ~ You beat me to it!


Quoting SallyMJ:

Uh - According to the Dept. of Homeland Security, holding the burglar at scissors-point?

It's articles like this that show why we need our guns--for our own protection of our families.

Nothing

There isn't a gun ban being talked about for guns already purchased and only on a specific type of gun

What type did this home owner use?

I'd like to be listed after the Catholic Church, but above Barbara Streisand.
