An alleged intruder entered a Lake County, Florida, home through a window Monday and was shot dead by a person inside the house.

Baring further evidence, it seems that this is a sad but necessary outcome.

Hard to imagine this is his first attempted break in.

While I’m pro-life, I think this is the best possible outcome  — only the bad guy pays.

A Tennessee mother has shared a chilling surveillance video showing a deranged stranger breaking into her home in broad daylight and forcing her to lock herself and her terrified toddler son in the bathroom until police came to the rescue. 

Keane Winchester, 26, a married mom-of-one from Lake County, says she was spending time with her two-year-old son last Thursday when she heard someone banging on her door and a male voice yelling ‘help.’

Winchester said at first she was not sure what was happening, but then she heard the intruder punching her door and windows, she told WBBJ.

“Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose

I think that this lady should have had a “tool” to dispose of this threat.  Personally, an AR15 would be excellent choice (i.e., low recoils; high stopping power; highly accurate; multiple rounds available).

As a pro-life little L libertarian, I am not for killing anyone but in “self-defense” that’s a whole different situation.

GUNS: Heroic defense by a young man demonstrates “Stand Your Ground” and the “Castle Doctrine”

14-Year-Old Shoots Armed Intruder While Babysitting His Younger Siblings in Phoenix

(The Blaze/AP) — A 14-year-old boy shot and nearly killed an intruder who broke into his Phoenix home and pulled a gun on him while he was watching his three younger siblings, police said Saturday.

The teen and his siblings, ages 8, 10 and 12, were at home alone when a woman rang the doorbell on Friday. A common enough occurrence, the boy still chose not to open the door because he didn’t recognize the woman.

Quickly escalating into a far more dangerous situation, the 14-year-old rushed his siblings upstairs after he heard a loud bang on the door, grabbing his father’s handgun on the way.

When he got to the top of the stairs, he saw an armed man break through the front door and point a gun at him.

Acting swiftly, he reportedly shot the 37-year-old man, who was taken to a hospital in extremely critical condition to undergo surgery. However, he is expected to survive and will be booked into jail within the week on counts of aggravated assault and burglary, police Officer James Holmes said.

The suspect did not get a shot off, according to police. He also declined to release his name until he is booked into jail.

At the very least, where is the national reaffirmation of “Stand Your Ground” and the “Castle Doctrine”?

The liberal anti-gun media was having a field day with the Florida shooting.

Initially, their claim was that every road rage incident would turn into Gunfight at the OK Corral. Didn’t happen.

Then, it was everyone was a stalking killer.

Now, not a peep. 

Well done, young man. 

I think we can trust this “kid” turned man to drink, drive a car, and do whatever else he wants.

We infantilize children. Waste their talents from 12 to 24. Then again from ~60’s to 80. 

When will “We, The Sheeple” wake up!
