A South Philadelphia gun store owner shot and killed a man who had broke into his store early Tuesday morning.
He’s recounting seeing three men using bolt cutters to cut through the padlock locking the fence to the building containing Firing Line Inc. on surveillance camera. After the three men broke into a back window and entered the first floor of the building, the store’s 67-year owner retrieved his Bushmaster M4 AR 15-style rifle, later firing one shot at the group of three men when they made their way upstairs. The store’s owner had realized that the burglars were armed, and fired at the men.
One looter was killed from the shot, and the other two fled.
Philadelphia Police Inspector Scott Smalls is describing the incident as a clear cut example of self defense. After questioning of the gun store owner and review of surveillance camera footage, he won’t face any criminal charges for defending his shop.
“One of the individuals that broke into the property, pointed a handgun at him,” Smalls told Fox 29. “And that’s when the store owner fired his own weapon, striking the one perpetrator at least one time in the head and he collapsed, dropping his gun between his legs.”
The store owner was spending the night at his shop because he believed looters had tried to access the building two preceding nights, as race riots and widespread looting rocked Philadelphia and the nation.
Another man later showed up at an area hospital with a gunshot wound to the shoulder. Authorities believe he’s connected to the group of men who attempted to loot Firing Line.
Thank God for the Second Amendment.
Florida Sheriff Will Deputize Gun Owners if Rioters “Overwhelm” County
He’s not messing around.
A Florida sheriff is pledging to deputize law-abiding gun owners within his county if left-wing rioters “overwhelm” law enforcement.
Darryl Daniels, Clay County Sheriff, made the pledge in a video released on Tuesday morning. He also slammed misinformation and hysteria advanced by the mainstream media, inciting against law enforcement and covering up the criminal activities of lawless rioters.
“If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff, and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility,” warned Sheriff Daniels.
The sheriff issued a direct warning to ANTIFA criminals and left-wing rioters hoping to replicate a model of destruction, violence and criminal activity in his jurisdiction, a county just south of Jacksonville.
“If you threaten to come to Clay County… And think for one second that we’ll bend our backs for you- you’re sadly mistaken. I know what happens when lawlessness prevails… If we can’t handle you, you know what I’ll do? I will exercise the power and authority of the sheriff, and I will make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this country… to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility.”
Daniels has served 29 years in law enforcement, previously serving in the U.S. Navy.
