Four Louisiana robbers got the surprise of their lives when they broke into a home and were confronted by an armed woman.
The homeowner told deputies several men were at her front door dressed in hoods and carrying backpacks. When she met them at the door with a handgun the suspects fled in an SUV that was parked in the bushes.
The sheriffs office got another call from an alert neighbor who said they witnessed the hooded suspects on the porch of the home and spotted another man hiding in some bushes.
Caddo Sheriff’s Lt. Jackie Lewis spotted the suspects’ vehicle and stopped it in the 3200 block of Colquitt Road. The vehicle contained several backpacks, masks, a large knife, and marijuana.
Deputies arrested 20-year-old Jacorey Fuller, 20-year-old Andre Ealy, 20-year-old Tristen Bradley, and 24-year-old Micah Eugene have each been charged with simple burglary, possession of marijuana and possession of burglary tools.
In the aftermath of last month's shooting in Las Vegas, which left 58 people dead, the left has renewed calls for stricter gun control. But this recent incident in Louisiana is a reminder of why Second Amendment rights are so critical.
If this woman had not been armed for protection, a number of alternatives may have played out: she could have been hurt, raped, or even killed. Average Americans rely on their right to bear arms every day to protect their families and deter criminals.
What the left doesn't seem to comprehend is that criminals don't follow laws to begin with. More gun control often just makes it harder for law abiding citizens to purchase firearms legally. Criminals, on the other hand, are more likely to buy weapons on the black market.
But the bigger point is that gun control often doesn't work. The vast majority of mass shootings happen in "gun free" zones. According to the Crime Research Prevention Center, 99 per cent of mass public shootings have occurred in gun free zones since 1950. The reason why is clear: criminals want to carry out carnage in places where they're the least likely to face armed resistance.
But hey, those are facts. And the left has made it clear they have little interest in those.
