Oklahoma Man Fires Twice At Intruder To Protect His Wife And Children

The call came through to the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office around 4 a.m. last Thursday. A homeowner reported someone trying to break in through the back door. After hanging up, the man of the house went to grab his firearm in order to protect his wife and their two sleeping children.

According to KTUL-TV, as he approached the back door, the homeowner noticed the suspect was armed, so he fired his gun and hit the intruder twice. The suspect immediately dropped to the ground, but eventually jumped up and ran—approaching neighboring homes to ask for help.

Police found the 33-year-old suspect lying in a street, not far from the house he attempted to burglarize. The injured invader was transported to the hospital in potentially serious condition. Investigators also found multiple firearms outside the home where the original encounter took place, all of which appear to belong to the suspect.

Meeting On Campus Carry Concerns Draws Only One Person

With campus carry taking effect at Georgia colleges and Universities on July 1, administrators at Augusta University thought it would be prudent to have a gathering to address questions and concerns students might have about the law.

The main question, it seems, was why the meeting was being held at all, as only one participant showed up—and he was the director of student health at the college, according to a report at breitbart.com.

While organizers plan to try again with better advertising, Breitbart stated, “AU Chief of Police James C. Lyon said he has not received a single call from someone concerned or alarmed by someone carrying a concealed weapon.” That’s just what Jerry Henry, Georgia Carry executive director, expected. “The fact that only the director of Student Health attended the meeting proves what we predicted: that campus carry would have no adverse affect on student life, nor would it interfere with classroom studies, other than rendering the campus a safer place,” Henry said.
