Citizens Protect Themselves From Criminals When Cops Not Around
When seconds count, the police are only minutes away, maybe. An 80 year old man did not have a cop around when his home was invaded by a man and woman. Instead of becoming just another homicide victim—because the ACLU prefers to protect criminals and care not a whit about victims—he used his Second Amendment rights and killed one of the two intruders. Now we have another home invaded in the middle of the night—and not a cop in sight. The homeowner used his Second Amendment rights and protected himself and his property.
Should these citizens have become victims? Yup, if you believe Obama, Feinstein, San Fran Nan SF Mayor Lee and LA Mayor Garcetti. Glad to see citizens using their Constitutional rights—instead of their death benefits.
Suspected burglar shot and killed by Long Beach resident

LONG BEACH – A Long Beach resident shot and killed a suspected burglar Sunday morning in the city’s Bluff Park neighborhood, a police official said.
Officers responded at 2:24 a.m. to the 2800 block of East Third Street in regards to a burglary in progress, said Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman Sgt. Megan Zabel. She said the resident had shot the suspect.
“Officers arrived along with paramedics who pronounced the burglary suspect deceased at the scene,” Zabel said.
Zabel said the suspected burglar is a male. No other identifying information was available on the resident or suspect Sunday.
There are no reports of the residents being injured, she said. Homicide investigators were still on scene Sunday morning.
Zabel said it is too early to speculate on whether the resident would face charges.
“The case will be presented to the (district attorney’s) office upon conclusion of the investigation, who will determine if charges will be filed if any.” Zabel said.
The shooting comes less than three weeks after an 80-year-old man caught a man and woman ransacking his house in the city’s upscale Bixby Knolls neighborhood. The homeowner shot at both of them and fatally wounded the woman in the alley outside the home, authorities said.
The man and woman, who police said had criminal histories consistent with the crime, “body slammed” homeowner 80-year-old Tom Greer onto the floor when he confronted them, Long Beach Police Chief Jim McDonnell said. Greer suffered a broken collarbone in the scuffle.
Greer got up and was able to retrieve a gun and fired at the intruders inside the home. He then pursued them as they fled out of the garage and into the alley, where Greer shot the woman, police said.
