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.
National Foundation for Gun Rights Pitched in $50K for Kyle Rittenhouse’s Legal Defense
They’re stepping up to the plate.
The National Foundation for Gun Rights (NFGR) announced on September 17, 2020 that they are providing $50,000 of aid to Kyle Rittenhouse, who is facing various criminal charges after he defended himself and business owners from leftist agitators in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“I spoke with Kyle’s mother this morning to let her know NFGR received over a thousand donations amounting to over $50,000 from folks who support her son,” declared Dudley Brown, Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights.
Rittenhouse’s mother was thankful about receiving the donation. She stated, “No words can describe what we’re going through. Thank you so much – and I know Kyle and the rest of the family would say thank you too.”
NFGR’s funds will go towards the Kyle Rittenhouse trust fund that is being operated by his attorney, John Pierce. The funds will only be used according to the desires of Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother.
“We want Kyle to have the best defense possible,” remarked Brown. “If he were getting a fair shake from prosecutors, he would be home with his family right now instead of spending weeks in a jail without bail.”
According to video footage taken on the night of August 25th, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was fleeing an armed mob who were screaming, “Beat him up!” and “Get that dude!”
“The left is doing everything in their power to portray a 17-year-old kid as the villain,” stated Brown. “We believe Kyle acted legally and defended himself from a dangerous group of armed thugs whose clear intent was to cause permanent harm.”
The National Foundation for Gun Rights plans on continuing to back the Rittenhouse family until Kyle is able to receive justice for simply exercising his sacred right to self-defense.
NFGR is the legal arm of the National Association for Gun Rights. Since its founding in 2000, NAGR has been one of the leading no compromise, Second Amendment organizations in the country.
Unlike most organizations, they’re willing to fight all unconstitutional gun control legislation at the federal and state level. Second Amendment supporters can donate to NAGR and NFGR at the links below:
