Call 911 Only After Your Shotgun is Pumped

Because the cops will only get there in time to tape off the scene of the crime and stare at your dead body.

Fifty miles west of Tulsa, a lady watched a man preying on her house, looking for a way to get in and do his thing. She called 911, where the dispatcher tried to keep her distracted from the real task at hand. Listen to the call and judge for yourself. Finally, this prepared woman said, “I can’t keep this gun and keep on the phone darling, it’s a big shotgun, it will break my arm.”

Some intoxicated maggot named Billy Dean Riley, with his drunken sister in the car with him, got into a car wreck. He left the scene and ended up at this lady’s house. He canvassed the house looking for a place to get in, and her dog alerted her to the predator’s presence. He started kicking in her door, and she warned him she was armed. He threw a chair through the window, and that’s when she let him have it with her 16-gauge shotgun. He was killed on the spot. The lady’s life will go on because she had been taught by her son what to do should a break-in ever occur while she was home.

So go ahead and ask me why you need to be armed and prepared within your own home. Better yet, take a look at what happens if you aren’t prepared. In March, 70 miles northeast of Tulsa, the homeowners weren’t prepared like the lady above. The result was that Sam Sanders was shot and killed by two intruders. The intruders also assaulted other members of the family inside the home. One shotgun with a few loads of buckshot would have prevented the assaults and the murder.

Now here’s another Tulsa home invasion story. And here’s yet another one in Tulsa, and this time two people inside the home were killed. In fact, in Tulsa there were seventeen home invasions in about a one month period.

Even if you are not a “gun nut” and don’t want to become one, you can get one of these for less than $400 new and $200 used. It really boggles my mind why people are so willing to be victims within their own home. There’s plenty of time for television and mall wandering, but what about a few bucks and a few hours spent buying and learning to use a shotgun? Thanks to Charles Everett for the tip.

    I am barred by New York law from having any kind of firearm within my apartment. If someone breaks in all I have to defend myself is a baseball bat!!

    The Teenagers and the Criminals are awash in illegal firearms but the Decent Law-Abiding People that live here are Preyed Upon Each and Every Day!!

    Besides not being allowed to defend yourself; the laws and courts of New York bend over backwards to put convicted felons back on our streets as soon as is possible. I am Really surprised that there are not Posses of Vigilantes Dispensing Street Justice in New York City!!

    A baseball bat is sooo easy to take away from someone.

    A dragon suit might not be a bad idea, but who wants to wear one of those all the time?

    According to people who study such things and ask/study prison inmates (Ferfal) a knife in close encounters less than a couple of feet is better than a gun in a holster. You can get those from any kitchen store or better yet, a camping store, so far anyway.

    Are there still parts of the country where they don’t lock their doors at night? I know there are some parts of the country where they don’t lock their doors in the daytime while they’re away – it’s not until after something happens to you that this changes? Maybe not even then, or maybe people like playing the victim?

    Still, a door is nothing much in the way of a barricade to stop a determined person, unless it’s a steel door with special frame. A special shatter resistant flim on windows is a good idea too.

    I wonder if pepper spray filled paintballs is a good idea?

    The day is coming cousin lucky, that WE are going to take America back from the politicians, the socialists, and all the other do-gooders who would run every aspect of our lives. How America came to be this way simply astounds me ! As someone who grew up in the 50′s, I can not believe that the dumbing down of America was so swift and complete. What in the hell happened to the American spirit ? I am convinced that there are enough people like me left in this country, that have just about had it with the bullshit that is taking place in our nation these days. These politicians are rapidly running out of time I think. Get a back bone America, and take back what is yours…

    Of course if you dial 911 the police have no compelled legal duty even to respond.

    And if they do, they may choose to shoot the homeowner:

    And more and more the police view the taxpayers who fund their paychecks as the enemy:

    The police should not be considered as “first responders.” When my sister was being stalked, the local Sheriff’s deputy who responded to her complaint suggested that she carry a gun. Of course she already was.

    Rely on the police for your safety at your own risk. They carry guns for their safety – not for yours.

    I love the gun posts Karen. Keep it up!

    BTW, my personal recommendation is a 12-gauge, full stock (not pistol grip) shotgun loaded with 00-buck, 9 pellet, 2.75″ shells for home defense. I have a few Mossbergs, and have been jonesing for a third but with decent ghost sites and a barrel shroud. They’re simple, intuitive, and for older folks, a 20-gauge or .410 shotgun make great subsitutes.

    You’re right. Police are historians. They’ll do their investigation, chalk the bodies, take some digital photos. What’s more, the police have absolutely no Constitutional obligation to protect you. They simply protect a “collective”. A simple Google search will validate this. If you don’t happen to live in the lovely state of Vermont, consider a concealed carry permit. And a reputable pistol. Criminals don’t make appointments.

    @cousin lucky: I’m due east in the Bay State. Massachusetts has draconian gun laws too, but not as evil as New York’s. Fortunately, I hope to call New Hampshire home sometime in early 2011.

    “I can’t keep this gun and keep on the phone darling, it’s a big shotgun, it will break my arm.”

    LOL! I can just picture this sweet, grandmotherly lady clad in her nightgown and robe with the phone in one hand and a shotgun in the other.

    I guess if there’s a silver lining to this story (other than the obvious one of the human gene pool having been chlorinated by removing a criminal scumbag from it), it’s that this little lady, and those following her story, will have learned the lesson once and for all that calling 911 is at best a waste of time and at worst a lethal mistake. The only problem I can think of that would result from not calling 911 in a case like this is the question of what to do with the body.

    LOL! This was a rich story. Go lady go! Cops as historians? You bet. I like to think of them instead as doughnut filled janitors and paper pushers. They come in afterward to clean up.
