“If I didn’t have a gun, this guy could have hurt us really bad.”
A Hesperia, California man’s account of defending his home from an armed attempted burglar has many firearms enthusiasts pointing to the incident as textbook case for gun rights.
The homeowner, David Uresti, has released home surveillance camera footage of the chilling attempted home invasion, which took place in the early morning of January 18th. A man-who the homeowner says he’s never met in his life- arrives at the door, and begins acting erratically.
“He came to my house it looks like 3-4 times and the fourth time he starts kicking the door and demands to be let in. Wakes up my wife, wakes me up, I run to the front door to see who it is,” stated the homeowner. “I see him pull out a gun, at that point I back up go back to my room I get armed, I come back to the front.”
As the home invader begins brandishing his own gun, the homeowner opens fire. A shootout between the two men ensures, captured entirely on camera.
The home invader either suffered a gunshot wound from Uresti, or pissed his pants at one point.
Photojournalist JGKIX documented the homeowner’s account of the entire event, and included the surveillance camera footage of the shootout.
San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the shootout after the suspect had fled the scene, viewing him entering a neighbor’s house. After determining that the home invasion suspect had fled that residence, a search ultimately ended in the apprehension of 39-year old Erick Contreras.
Contreras is being charged with shooting into an inhabited dwelling, attempted murder, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and attempted robbery.
“I’m really pro-guns now. Defend your family. Defend your home. We could be dead right now,” stated the armed citizen, who may have prevented a violent crime from being inflicted upon his family through firing back.
2A Revolution: The Number of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in Ohio Almost Doubled In 2020
Gun grabbers take another L.
2020 was a monster year for gun sales. The unrest that ensued following the death of George Floyd motivated millions of Americans to get strapped. As cities became hellscapes filled with looting and random acts of violence, Americans learned real quick that the most reliable form of defense in such chaotic times is the right to bear arms.
In addition, a substantial number of Americans took their gun ownership to the next level by applying for concealed carry licenses. Some figures from states such as Ohio suggest that 2020 was also a record year for the issuance of concealed carry licenses. According to Cam Edwards of Bearing Arms, data from Attorney General Dave Yost’s office uncovered that approximately 100,000 concealed carry licenses were issued to Ohioans in 2020.
These figures are the most since 2016 and represent a 78% increase since 2019. More specifically, Ohio sheriffs issued 96,892 new concealed licenses, while 72.340 ohio gun owners completed license renewals. 2018 and 2019 were the top two years for renewed concealed firearms licenses.
Ohio is currently ranked as the 23rd most pro-gun state in the nation according to Guns & Ammo magazine’s ranking for most pro-gun states in America. Additionally, it’s ranked in a sub-par 34th place for states most friendly towards the concept of concealed carry. Ohio’s gun laws still need work, but the state is moving in the right direction after it recently passed a bill to strengthen its Stand Your Ground laws.
The Second Amendment remains a powerful issue and America First proponents would do well to embrace it during election season, when there are many angry gun owners ready to pounce on anti-Second Amendment incumbents and candidates.
