Detroit Homeowners Use Guns to Show 'They Aren't Going to Take It Anymore'

During the last week, three different Detroit homeowners have used guns to defend their lives and their property against intruders and attackers. 

As Breitbart News reported early last week, the first of these instances took place on February 17 when a Detroit mother used an “assault rifle” to fend off intruders armed with a handgun.

They were kicking in her door when she fired from her Hi-Point 9mm carbine, causing two of the intruders to flee. The third intruder picked up the gun he had dropped in the commotion and tried to enter the house a second time, which is when the homeowner opened fire again and ended the invasion.

According to WXYZ ABC7, the next incident happened in the early morning hours of February 22. Two men armed with a tire tool broke into a Detroit home and began attacking the homeowner. While under duress, the homeowner pulled his gun and shot both, killing one. 

Also, just after noon on the 22nd, a woman “pulled her car into the garage when a man with a gun appeared out of nowhere.” She distracted him by dropping her keys to the ground, then pulled her .38 revolver and killed him.

Commenting on these incidents, Detroit Police Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson said, “I think it’s just a matter of individual homeowners protecting themselves and finally catching up with the criminals in that enough is enough and they aren’t going to take it anymore.”
