CBS17 reported that on Wednesday, October 30, 2019, Jeremy King was attacked by an armed robber in his own home in Lithia, Florida.
On that day, around 9 p.m, King was at home with his pregnant wife, and his daughter.
“They came in heavily hooded and masked,” King described the two robbers who broke into his home with guns. “As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter.”
The robbers commanded him, “Give me everything you got.” King responded, “I have nothing for you,” according to a Bay News 9 report.
One of the robbers struck him with the gun and the other kicked him in the head.
During this frantic attack, King’s wife looked around the corner and saw the robbers savagely beating her husband.
One of them fired a shot towards her direction. Then she proceeded to get her AR-15 to return fire.
“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King informed the station. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”
King had a fractured eye socket and sinus cavity along with a concussion after the attack. Additionally, he received 20 stitches and three staples.
One of the robbery suspects was found dead in a ditch close to King’s home.
Law enforcement is still trying to find the second suspect.
Thankfully, for King and his family, Florida has strong use of force laws, which allow law-abiding citizens to use lethal force in dangerous encounters such as these.
The Second Amendment is truly the great equalizer, allowing the most vulnerable — a pregnant woman in this case — to defend themselves in compromising situations.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis
After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”
Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus”
Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails.

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”
Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.
In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.
With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.
Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.
A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.
This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.
Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
