A story coming out of Florida sees a homeowner using a firearm to protect himself after three individuals broke into his house. A sheriff out of Florida says the owner will “absolutely not” be faced with charges, and rightfully so since he was not in the wrong.
The footage was released by Escambia County Sheriff’s Office from the homeowner’s Ring camera which shows that the home intruders barged their way into the Pensacola home on July 7, after the homeowner answered the door.
As two of the criminals pushed their way through the door after the homeowner opened it the third can be seen panicking getting a firearm ready. The owner of the house wasn’t on camera, and he also chose to remain anonymous.
The owner was equipped with a firearm when he opened the door. Once the two criminals inside noticed they ganged up on him wrestling the weapon away from the owner. That’s when the owner retreated to a room in the back and grabbed another firearm and began to open fire on the two criminals.
The Ring footage then shows the cowards all running for their lives and hopping in the vehicle they arrived in. A fourth criminal waiting inside the car drove them away immediately.
It’s always great when we get to see a good guy with a weapon exercising his God-given right to protect his or herself and their loved ones. Da’Torrance Hackworth, 20, and Antonio Dewayne Dean Jr., 18, were both captured and get to deal with home invasion and illegal gun charges.
Did you catch that leftest? Illegal gun charges! You see, criminals don’t abide by the law. No matter what gun law you and the democrats push for – this exact scenario would have taken place with or without any gun laws. What would have changed is the homeowner’s God-given right to protect himself.
A third suspect, Joseph Roman Sanders, 18, is still on the run, and authorities are as of yet hoping to figure out who the getaway driver was. His picture was captured clearly on the Ring camera, so they were easily able to figure out who Joseph was.
Sheriff Chip Simmons stands by the homeowner’s choice to protect himself and says that he won’t have to deal with any penalties for taking shots at the suspect’s since he has a right to safeguard himself and his home.
“So those of you who might ask a question, is the homeowner going to be charged for shooting at these people? Absolutely not! The homeowner is protecting himself and in Florida and Escambia County, you can protect yourself,” said Chip.
He added that “If someone breaks into my front door, barges in, and attacks me or my family, they are going to get shot,’ Simmons added. ‘I afford that same consideration to the residents of my county.”
This is a notion that should be echoed throughout America. Protecting our rights, ourselves, our loved ones, and those around us should be lifted. We The People who carry arms aren’t the ones committing these mass atrocities, so we shouldn’t be getting these idiotic “common sense” gun laws passed on us. It’ll only help to serve the criminals and hinder us.
