A Florida resident defended his home using an “Ak-47 style rifle” during a home invasion. The local sheriff told the press that this man will “absolutely not” face any charges as a result of the home defense.
As was reported in Fox News:
“He started shooting for his own protection, to get them out of his house and to protect himself,” Escambia County Sheriff Chip Simmons said of the recent shooting in a video address posted to the office’s official Facebook page.
Simmons said three men, including one armed with a gun, entered a home in Escambia County just ahead of midnight on July 7. The homeowner was present when the three men entered the house and pulled out a handgun from his waistband, but dropped the firearm.
The homeowner was able to run and retrieve another weapon, an “AK-47-style gun,” while one of the suspects picked up the victim’s handgun.
The homeowner then began firing at the suspects before they fled the home.
It should come as no surprise that the gun grabbers would want to see this homeowner thrown behind bars as a result of this self-defense shooting.
Gun grabbers have long held the position that you do not have a right to self-defense, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau recently said the quiet part out loud and announced that no one has a right to defend themselves with a firearm.
As we reported at the time:
The prime minister has recently pushed for all manner of gun reforms including a total freeze on the sale, transferring, and purchase of handguns in the country.
Canada is no stranger to gun control and its gun laws are more comparable to those in Europe than those in even the strictest states.
Trudeau made these comments on the Pod Save America Podcast while discussing the latest round of gun reform. These comments are not meant to be banter, these are his real thoughts on the matter.
Similar proposals to the ones made in Canada have been suggested in the United States in the past and it should be noted that because Canada is planning to pass these laws(and will likely do so) the gun grabbers in America are going to make similar efforts and there will be Republicans that fold on the issue.
No amount of gun control is enough for these people. Justin Trudeau’s belief that you do not have a right to self-preservation is not exclusive to him. Many in America share those same beliefs and will push for laws that represented those beliefs. Be prepared, there is no end to gun control in sight.
