You have to love these stories because they emphasize how important it is to protect our rights under the Second Amendment.
If Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein, and the rest of the liberal loonies had their way, this well-trained Marine would have been unarmed. He and his aunt would probably be dead or seriously injured.
Note that the article refers to him as a “former Marine.” Having known many of these brave Americans, I have learned that there is no such thing as a “former” Marine. They are Marines until the day they die:
CAR THIEF’S HORRIBLE MISCALCULATION TURNS OUT TO BE DEADLY AFTER HE TARGETED ARMED FORMER MARINE – WHO WAS JUST AS HEROIC AS YOU’D EXPECT
September 24, 2013
A former Marine in Maple Valley, Wash., didn’t expect to encounter a car thief breaking into his truck as he prepared to walk his dog Tuesday morning. Then again, the thief didn’t expect to run into an armed former Marine either.
The thief, identified only as a 27-year-old male, and his girlfriend were reportedly driving a stolen Honda with stolen plates when they decided to break into a pickup truck. As the owner of the truck, the former Marine, came out to walk his dog, he saw the crime in progress and confronted the criminals.
In an instant, guns were drawn and bullets were flying through the air. The former Marine was deadly accurate, hitting the male suspect several times before he could hide behind the truck. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
