Second Amendment Win: “Home invasion suspect arrested after woman opens fire”

Magnolia, Texas:

A home invasion suspect was arrested at a hospital after a mother shot him during the crime at a Montgomery County home, deputies said Wednesday.

Erin, who asked to be identified only by her first name, told Local 2 she was putting her 6-year-old son to bed when she heard a loud noise coming from her bedroom on Mink Lake Drive Friday night.

“I threw the cover over my son and I took off running, screaming to the living room to let my dogs out,” she said.

Erin said she turned around and saw three masked men, pointing a gun right at her.

“I was pretending to move the mattress. It’s really heavy, so I was trying to move their attention to the mattress because they wouldn’t take their eyes off of me. I needed a split second for them to take their eyes off of me. I said, ‘It might be under here.’ They started talking to each other in Spanish and then a roll of duct tape came out,” said Erin.

At this point, Erin said she prayed for something to distract them so she could grab her gun. She said her prayers were answered when her dogs ran in and started barking.

“They all turned around and looked. I grabbed my gun, cocked it, I turned and shot him right in the stomach,” said Erin.”

Duct tape. That sounds ominous.

    Those who know history understand the true meaning of the 2nd Amendment & it’s not for deer hunting, but tyranny.

    A Time To Stand by Oliver is a book out about good Americans who take a stand against tyranny & ends up starting the 2nd American Revolution. It’s provocative so I recommend it.

    For some reason, anti-constitutional individuals that now is the time to overthrow the government. Even CBS has been quoted for saying that the U.S. Constitution is no longer viable. It’s time to take a stand.

      GreenLeaf: Welcome to the Revo. Now is definitely a time to stand for the US Constitution. It’s being attacked on all fronts. It is NOT, however, a time for revolution. Precipitous violence would cause catastrophic & irreparable damage to our cause.

      ALL legal avenues of recourse must be completely exhausted before physical violence is ever considered. When upheavals occur, forces behind the scenes often exploit the lack of overview to their advantage (hard to see the forest, for all those trees). We must be mindful of our history. Our forefathers suffered decades of tyranny and a long train of abuses which we are only beginning to see. We can still correct our course through peaceful means.

        Nota: You are right on point. I think that we will see the the advent of “Haven States” prior to a general rebellion. Fortunately, the House of Representatives can do a lot to stiffle the current despot. We may even be able to take the Senate at the next election.
        Not enough despot voters have been negatively impacted by what has been done thus far.
        I think that as things start going really bad the fools, who were conned in November, will realize that they pulled the wrong lever and remedy the error mid term.
        That said, RD gave us “Preppers Vindicated”. Do not waste his message.

        Yep.

        Syria’s ‘truly shocking’ death toll passes 60,000

        More than 60,000 people – civilians, Syrian troops and rebels – have been killed in the country’s bitter civil war the United Nations announced, a toll it described as “truly shocking”.

        • notamobster says:

          This type of image needs to be seen and considered by all who are beating the war drums.

          • Jim22 says:

            Yes it should be shown and seen, but for two reasons. First as a deterrent. It’s easy to sit behind a keyboard and advocate for violent action. It’s quite another thing to actually do it and prevail – without becoming a monster yourself.

            Most people are shocked by images like those RD shared. Dead people in the street and a child who has seen the killing from close up are sickening images. But, as shocking as they are they don’t begin to show us the real horrors of warfare.

            Bodies that are missing major parts, especially those of children and women, and unattached body parts in unexpected places are not parts of the images above. They are what war looks like.

            Someone has to cart away the bodies and the parts or they will putrify and eventually kill civilians with disease. That will be your job if you love your family because the warriors will have moved on.

            The other reason we should see these things is to help us understand what a breakdown of civil society looks like. Those who advocate for anarchy are promoting lawlessness. Don’t fool yourself. There are plenty of idealists who support anarchy.

            Another thing: If you think you are smarter, tougher, or better trained than those you are determined to make war with you may think you will be victorious. That’s a mistake. So much of death and survival in dangerous times is based on chance. The odds will catch up with you. None of the men in RD’s first image thought they would die.

    Thanks, Nota. I agree that all legal possibilities must be explored before initiating violence. At least that should be the position of us who stand to lose so much.

    The would-be tyrants, however, have no such scruples. They have been demonizing law-abiding Americans and canonizing the evil doers. Besides that they appear to be trying to goad someone on the right into shooting first.

    I prefer to think of my position as being defensive rather than offensive. Defense can take several forms. It can mean waiting until the other guy shoots first or it can mean something else.

    I think the vast majority of American gun owners are patient – almost to a fault. We will put up with a lot of attacks before we decide to attack first. Nothing wrong with that. We have to walk the high ground.

    The difference between this woman shooting to save her babies and herself and American gunners is similar. She gave them every chance but finally had to take matters into her own hands. She did it with decisiveness and didn’t go overboard in her attack. She solved her problem.

    It’s too bad that the problem of politicos trying to disarm us will not go away as easily.

      A friend of mine, Desert Rat, is a very liberty minded individual.
      He asked me today, if I thought the .gov was making moves toward confiscation (etc).

      I told him that I don’t think so. I think they are deliberately encouraging an environment of fear & distrust to provoke a violent response.

      Thanks for confirming that thought for me. We should all be trained & prepared for various scenarios, including fighting. I am a defensive violence guy. Sometimes that includes preventing violence from being perpetrated against you, by striking first. That is not to say that folks should encourage violent insurrection. Just that when/if the time does come, the need to strike first may present itself.

      • TN-Cat says:

        Maybe I see this much differently, but we are the ones defending our country. Were not revolutionaries. Its those that are trying to replace our form of government that are the intruders.

        Am I wrong here? How can we in any form be landless aggressors?

        • notamobster says:

          That’s a largely semantic argument. The chatter I’m hearing and responding to, is talk of revolution, from people on our side. Like the comment above from GreenLeaf.

          Revolution is derivative of ‘revolutio’ which is Latin for “turn around”. It’s the fundamental change of power or structure in a short period of time.

          Our power structure has changed dramatically over a long period of time. If a violent insurrection succeeded in returning our nation to it’s founding principles, it would be a revolution, because we are certainly not the nation of our founding.
