Crime Awareness: Home Invasion Nightmare

Armed robbers posing as plumbers con their way into Bronx apartment and beat and torture victims, 28 and 35, with a hot iron for 15 HOURS

 

Below Comments H/T Active Response Training

This type of restraint and torture would be my personal crime nightmare.  Read the article.  Note the fact that the bad guys were wearing florescent safety vests.  Why would a plumber need a traffic safety vest for an indoor job?  You must use your brain in a case like this.  Lots of criminals hide behind $5 neon green vests.

Think about what you may do if something similar happens to you.  Do you have a gun on your person when you answer the door?  When do you open the door?  When do you keep it locked?  Do you know how to defeat improvised restraints like duct tape and zip ties?  All of these questions are valuable to ponder in advance, before you become a victims of a similar attack.

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!

 

Parents, Teach Your Children Well

12-Year-Old Boy Defends 73-Year-Old, Shoots, Kills Home Invader

 

My father started teaching me the basics of becoming a rifleman when I was six years old.

It was a Sheridan .20 caliber Silver Streak and she was beautiful.

If you are the parent of a young child, instead of buying them that video game or tablet, buy them a pellet gun and start teaching the fundamentals of marksmanship and responsible firearm ownership.

After that progress to a 10/22 then a scoped deer rifle then an AR/AK then a pistol, etc…

Believe me when I tell you that in this day and age nothing can be more important.

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!
