3 Armed Men Break in and Threaten to Kill 8 People. What Happened Next Was Exactly What Should Have Happened.
When three Spanish-speaking males broke into a Harris County, Texas home, they probably thought they were going to walk right in and walk right out.
It is not known whether the men were in Texas illegally or not. But because of the lax enforcement of border laws in the state of Texas, the men might have thought burglarizing a home would be something they could easily get away with.
Little did they know one of them was about to lose his life.
Eight people were inside of the home when the men broke in. The grandmother, joined by her three granddaughters, were inside of the kitchen cooking breakfast at 4:30 a.m. when the armed men forced entry into the home.
The woman’s adult son heard the commotion, and when he heard the grandmother’s plea for the men “not to hurt the girls,” he sprung into action. As eight people were in the home at the time, he had to act quickly.
In true Texas fashion, the man quickly found himself in a standoff situation with the men. Before the men had a chance to respond, the son pulled the trigger and dropped one of the thugs like a bad habit.
The official statement given by the Harris County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that the man acted in self-defense.
Though not much is known about the victimized family, what can be said is it takes a fair amount of skill and resolve to enter into that kind of situation with the confidence to shoot and kill. It’s why every responsible gun owner knows practice is needed for these rare types of circumstances.
Situations such as the one experienced by this Texan family are the exact reason gun laws will never stop criminals from attempting to commit crimes.
Clearly, it’s illegal to break into someone’s residence, but that didn’t stop these men.
And just as obvious is knowing the use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a crime is illegal, but these men went forward bullheadedly and attempted to rob this family of their possession and possibly their lives.
Which is why stories like this must constantly be highlighted and distributed.
We must continue to affirm the rights we still have.
Your rights are increasingly under attack, and some of them are hanging on by a thread.
