The last thing liberals want the American people to hear is another case of a law-abiding homeowner using his/her gun for self-defense, but as more Americans buy guns and are willing to use them, there is bound to be more incidents like this one. This time 2 armed intruders forced a homeowner to open his gun safe. That was their second mistake the first was entering the wrong house.
Brentwood, California lies about 25 miles east of Oakland, on the east side of Mt. Diablo and about 20 miles due west of Stockton. With a population of about 23,000, it’s generally a quiet and peaceful community, except for Wednesday night.
A pair of intruders picked the wrong house and the wrong person to rob and paid for it with their lives. Not long after 11pm, neighbors heard a series of gunshots, first two and then eight more. One neighbor ran outside with a flashlight to find a man lying on the ground, bleeding and in pretty bad condition. The neighbor, Reggie Nichols, told the media:
“I could see the guy lying in the street, so then I came back and got my flashlight and got my phone, ran over there. He was still alive but he wasn’t doing good.”
It turns out that the two intruders, both male, broke into the home of Nichols’ neighbor. They were armed and forced him to open his gun safe. Once open, the homeowner turned the tide on the armed intruders and gun shots were exchanged. Neither of the two intruders survived their wounds. A third accomplice who was waiting in a getaway car, drove off and is still at large…
The more homeowners that shoot and kill intruders, the fewer intruders there will be and safer other homes will be. Liberals fail to understand that the only real form of safety is being armed and ready to shoot. They would have preferred that the homeowner in Brentwood be unarmed and have no guns and left to the whims of the armed intruders.
