We’re quite the fans of self-defense stories here at LwC (see Thanks 2A: Armed Thugs Attempt to Rob Uber Driver. Get Dropped Instead! and SWEET JUSTICE: Armed Robbers Target Quiet Neighborhood. Get Shot by CCW Holder…). This is one for the books. A father and his family were sleeping soundly when, around 4 a.m., an armed criminal thought he’d do some home intruding. It didn’t end well for him.
The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after they say a homeowner shot someone trying to break into his Collinsville home. Deputies say the suspect, 33-year-old Kou Yang, was taken to the hospital in potentially serious condition.
The sheriff’s office says the homeowner woke up to his dogs barking and the back door open. The homeowner reportedly armed himself and approached the back door. He then saw that Yang was armed with a firearm so the homeowner fired his gun and hit the suspect twice.
The homeowner’s wife and his two children were both home during the altercation.
Yang dropped his weapon and dropped to the ground but got up and ran away from the home. Yang reportedly went to other houses looking for help, and Collinsville police later found him lying in the street not far from the home he tried to break into. Investigators found multiple firearms.
The best part is how he ran like a sissy when he realized he picked the wrong house to rob. Though I’ll admit I’m a tad disappointed he was able to run at all.
You break into someone’s house, you get to chomp lead. Doubly so if you bring a weapon with you. It’s a reality anti-gun nuts seem to hate, but fortunately for this father, he’s backed by the Stand Your Ground law.
“You have a right to protect your home if someone is armed and in your house and poses a risk to your safety or the safety of your family,” said Casey Roebuck, spokeswoman for Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office.
In a leftist, unarmed society, this man would have been forced to deal with an armed psycho with a baseball bat or kitchen knife. Unless he’s James Bond, it would have been no match for the robber.
This is why we need to protect the Second Amendment — because it protects us.
