Lazy eyes listen
Around 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, a shotgun-wielding parole breaker “illegally entered” an armed homeowner’s Pahrump home in Nevada. The homeowner then opened fire, critically wounding the man, according to the Nye County Sheriff’s Office.
What specifics are there?
According to the sheriff’s office, the homeowner of the house in the 6000 block heard Richard in the kitchen while he was in bed.
Authorities claim that the homeowner had a firearm on him when Richard forced open the bedroom door. According to the sheriff’s office, the homeowner shot Richard twice in the chest, and Richard fell to the ground where he was hit.
Richard was taken by air ambulance to a hospital, according to the authorities.
The shotgun Richard was in possession of, according to the authorities, was taken the night before during a home invasion.
In addition to being charged with burglary, grand larceny of a firearm, and possession of a handgun by a prohibited person, Richard was also wanted for probation violation, according to the sheriff’s office.
According to the sheriff’s office, the homeowner is not being charged and that homeowner used a legal home defense, according to their findings.
One commentator stated that there are “too many out here in Pahrump,” adding that “it’s about time these homeowners start standing up for themselves and start… getting these home invasions under control.”
Another user noted that “most individuals” in Pahrump “are armed,” adding, “Lesson here.”
A second commenter concurred: “People here aren’t stupid. We were all shielded. Observe that.”
Self-defense occurs frequently and every day, but the media ignores it outside of local newspapers and groups, according to another commenter. “Criminals need to know there are consequences…these incidents of self-defense need to be reported everywhere and often,” the commenter said.
Another commenter yelled, “HELL YES!!! “Honor that homeowner with a medal!”
