Son, 21, ´saved mother and father´s
life´ after shooting dead home invader
while they were baking cake at home

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

A 21-year-old son shot dead an intruder to protect his immigrant parents when three men stormed their suburban home in Houston on Thursday night. The residents, who are from Eastern Europe, were enjoying some family time together and baking a cake when they heard a knock on the door at around 8pm. The father answered the door and a group of three men forced their way in. ´I see a young boy and I think it is a friend of my son so I open it a little bit,´ the father explained to KHOU-TV, he did not want

When are we going to hear from Biden that to avoid gun violence, that we are to comply with home invader demands?

I get my self defense advice from Double Barrel Biden. Maybe the kid should have taken his gun out on the back porch and shot it in the air.
That would tech those crooks.

People from Eastern Europe have learned how to prize liberty.

#3 -- good suggestion in most cases, but they were making a cake, and it might have fallen if he had followed the advice.

Looking on the bright side, the two perps who were apprehended can now be charged with murder because their buddy was killed in the commission of their crime.

Forgive me for somewhat off topic ramblings. This morning on another thread I said amnesty may be the most dangerous obama domestic policy objective. I take that back. For a gun grab may be just as, perhaps even more dangerous. Yesterday on a gun control thread I took a personal snipe at a poster. I regret the indiscretion. I regret that frustration gets the better of me at times because of the realization that conservatIves  are losing. A fatigued hand hold has replaced the tight rein on liberals. Soon we will chase a horse that can´t be caught.

Adios.

I like that thought, #12, but since the others ran, perhaps he DID have a high-capacity magazine. The anti-defense liberals tout low capacity magazines as giving the other guy a chance to disarm the gunman, and they are exactly right. These intruders may have seen that they had NO chance to disarm him.

The possibility of situations like this is one reason that most gun owners will not tolerate or comply with gun grabs or more restrictive gun laws. Had it not been for the gun under the bed, this family would likely have not had any surviving member left to call 911. If this had been the average family in say, New York City or Chicago, we would have been reading a different story and three perps would still be walking the streets looking for the next victims.

It´s odd isn´t it. If that 21yr old man had killed his mother and father with a gun, the Seattle Times would have had the story on the front page. But since he used it to kill an intruder they can´t be bothered to mention it at all.

Then you are left to "defend" yourself with an expensive, very-poorly-designed club.

Don´t you worry, #13. We all understand your frustration. The liberals want us to feel as we do: depresed, discouraged, hopeless, and outnumbered. But, these are certainly not attributes fostered by decent people. This is what feeds hell. I believe we are where we are for a reason, and that something is coming. What, I cannot say, but what is happening in the country now is too significant to be just a passing moment in history. Have faith. We are a righteous people and we will not be defeated.

No doubt thousands of good socialist Brit sheeples will have to enter crisis counseling after reading this.

The thought of actual self defense is so foreign to them, as well as the fact that the son´s actions weren´t demonized at length in the article. And, most shocking of all, the dirtbag was not only shot dead but nowhere is he made out to be a victim of capitalism.

Search Doug Hagmann, investigator (along with his son) to read his information for the real reason this gun ban is being pushed so Fast and Furiously by Obama and his Dem cronies. Hagmann frequently has his articles posted on Canadian Free Press.
Thank goodness for Castle Law in Texas. That law has saved many. And "NO" to any method to get names in a database so that the gov´t has it at the ´ready´ to know where to confiscate guns.

These days people call to say they are coming over. Otherwise, you can ring that doorbell til the cows come home and the door won´t open.

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country.

Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week.

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

If there was a standard operating manual for the secret services of the world´s dodgier regimes, it would no doubt omit any mention of the term "agent provocateur". In Russia, Burma, Iran et al, state-backed agents never get involved in causing trouble. Instead, there are only "patriotic local citizens", who, unable to contain themselves, rise up in righteous indignation against those who might betray the nation. That, if Russia is to be believed, is exactly what it happening in eastern Ukraine right now. According to a statement this morning from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, there are "no Russian

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive
