A sheriff in Florida recently upheld the right of homeowners to shoot burglars, in yet another pro-gun story you will not see covered by the mainstream media.
During the early morning hours of Saturday, an armed intruder made the mistake of breaking into an armed residence in Lakewood.
24-year-old Chevez Antwann Faison “fired shots at two people inside,” according to My News 13.com. “He was then shot and killed by the homeowner.”
Following the incident, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd expressed strong support for the right of homeowners to defend their property, and discouraged future home invaders by warning they will be shot.
“Forcing your way into an occupied residence is a bold and foolish decision,” Judd reportedly said in a press release. “If you are foolish enough to break into someone’s home, you can expect to be shot in Polk County.”
The sheriff’s tacit support of the Second Amendment follows pro-gun statements from other law enforcement members across the country, and comes amid announcements that the Obama administration will impose further gun control restrictions in weeks to come.
