Score one for the Second Amendment: Houston homeowner shoots & kills three perps during home invasion

Odds were one against four (or five, depending upon which media outlet you read). That’s why you need an equalizer.

From KHOU: Three people are dead and one is recovering after a home invasion in east Houston overnight. Police say four men forced their way into a home on Sherman at 71st around 12:45 a.m. Saturday.

Detectives said the homeowner grabbed his gun and shot all four of the suspects.

We’re told one suspect died at the scene. Two others died at a hospital. The fourth suspect was taken to the hospital and went into surgery.

The homeowner was reportedly not injured.

Houston police say the homeowner claimed self-defense. As of Saturday afternoon, he was still being questioned by authorities.

Evidence markers littered the area outside of the home, showing dozens of rounds were fired.

A group of tearful women showed up Saturday morning down the block from where the shooting occurred. They said they are related to the men who were shot and asked for privacy.

A neighbor who lives nearby said he was on his porch with his baby when two men showed up with large rifles.
The neighbor says he ran inside his home and took cover. He said he believes the men were at the home to rob his neighbor, however he says he does not know what they were after. He said he doesn’t know his neighbor’s name and only calls him “Flaco.”

South Carolina mother of 3 shoots home invader: “I would have killed him if I had to”

You go girl.

From Fox News: A South Carolina mother-of-three took action after she heard a man attempting to break into her home – and shot him.

Ashley Jones of Anderson County told FOX Carolina she heard someone banging at her door early on Thursday (last month). The mother said she called 911 and got her gun. She said she saw a man banging at her door when she peered out the window.

“I yelled, ‘I have a gun, I will shoot you, get away from my house,’” Jones said.

She said she used her gun after the intruder kicked her door in to come inside the home. Video surveillance outside her home captured the incident.

So then he kicks the door in as soon as he kicks the door in and tries to take a step in my house that’s when I shot him and he ran off, she recalled. “Something just came over me, I got calm and my heart slowed down.”

The mother said she “would’ve killed him if I had to” if the intruder tried to come inside her home. She said she was thankful she had protection because she didn’t think she could fight off the man. “Because if I didn’t have any kind of weapons I don’t know what I would have did. That guy was kind of big,” she said.

“I wouldn’t have been able to fight him off. I never thought I would have to shoot that gun, ever,” she continued.

The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said the suspect was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The suspect was later identified as Cecil Charles Parnell, 42, of Anderson, was charged with first-degree burglary and was booked in the Anderson County Detention Center, FOX Carolina reported. The woman who was with the suspect during the incident was not charged, the Anderson Independent Mail reported.

“Any mother is going to protect her kid any way she can. And that’s what I did,” Jones told WSPA.

Wild elks use their body heat to save boy from hypothermia

The elk (Cervus canadensis) is one of the largest species within the deer family, and one of the largest terrestrial mammals in North America.

Female elk (called cows) average 496 to 531 lb, stand 4.3 ft at the shoulder, and are 6.9 ft from nose to tail. Male elk (bulls) are 40% larger than cows at maturity, weighing an average of 705 to 730 lb, standing 4.9 ft at the shoulder and averaging 8.0 ft in length.

During the fall, elk grow a thicker coat of hair, which helps to insulate them during the winter.

Needless to say, wild elk avoid humans, especially hunters.

Rocky Mountain bull elk (Wikipedia)

The Eagles Nest Wilderness area in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Forest is prone to sudden, unpredictable and drastic changes in weather.

In 1992, Derek Patton and his youngest son Ryan were hunting in Eagles Nest when the two got separated.

Derek got a search and rescue party to search for the boy, but in vain.

Then it began to snow. The rescue party had to call off their search when night fell.

The boy, dressed in summer clothes, would surely die from hypothermia.

The next morning, they resumed their search.

The rescue dog found Ryan, who was on the verge of hypothermia.

The boy told an amazing story — that he had sought shelter under the low-hanging branches of a fir tree when two large elks approached. Ryan twice tried to shoo the elks away, but the elks persisted, each time getting closer to Ryan.

Finally, Ryan gave up, and the two elks lied down next to Ryan throughout the night, shielding him from the cold with their body heat.

In the morning, the elks left.

I sure hope Derek and Ryan Patton stopped hunting after this miraculous display of altruism by the two elks.

Woman rescues and befriends baby robin

Kara Twomey was walking her dog and saw a crow grabbing and flying off with a baby robin.

But the crow dropped the robin, so Kara rescued the fledgling and took him into her home.

Kara named the robin Squeaker, and nursed him back to health.

Little Squeaker began to hop around, then flew.

Kara kept Squeaker in her back yard, and Squeaker would come to her, stand on her shoulder or head.

Then Kara released Squeaker “into the wild”.

A month later, Squeaker returned to visit Kara.

Oregon counties pass Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance

Oregon Live displays their liberal bias right in the first sentence.

As in many blue states, once you get out of the progressive-infested metropolitan cities you’ll find many Second Amendment supporters.

From Oregon Live: The so-calledSecond Amendment Preservation Ordinance” declares that those living in counties that approve it have the right to own semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines, regardless of state or federal law. The measure appeared on the ballot in Baker, Columbia, Douglas, Jackson, Klamath, Lake, Lincoln, Linn, Umatilla and Union counties.

The ordinance also empowers sheriffs in those counties to determine if state and federal gun laws are constitutional and whether to prohibit local resources from being used to enforce them.

Partial returns show that the measure passed in all but Jackson and Lincoln counties.

The effort was organized by an Oregon gun rights group called the Committee for the Preservation of the Second Amendment. But it drew broad support among members of two militia groups, the Three Percenters and Oath Keepers, who campaigned and organized for the ordinance across the state.

Shelter dog gets forever home by making his bed every day

Animal shelters are full of homeless dogs and cats. But a Pit-bull at the SICSA Adoption Center in Kettering, Ohio, stood out from the crowd.

Every day, while waiting to be adopted, Rush would make his own bed.

This captured the attention and the hearts of one couple who adopted Rush.
