Three men broke into a house bent on robbing the occupants. This was on Monday night in Lumberton, NC. Two of the men knocked on the door of a house where a man, his wife and 17 year old granddaughter lived. All three men were armed and their heads were covered with ski masks and they were wearing gloves. They grabbed the man and his wife and they took them to the back of the house where they demanded money.
The 67 year old grandfather was cooperating right up until the three decided they were going to gang rape the granddaughter. The man either had a gun in the safe or nearby and he shot all three men but was shot himself in the process. He has had surgery and is currently in critical condition according to a woman who describes herself as a relative of the grandfather.
Two of the would be robbers appeared in a hospital emergency room to be treated for gunshot wounds. Police found the third man dead in the Cadillac they stole from the grandfather. The dead man has been identified as Jamie Lee Faison.
The other two have been identified as Brandon Carver Stephens and Jamar Hawkins. Both men had to be airlifted to another hospital and their condition has not been released at the time of this writing.
Every day we see examples like this where victims turn the table on armed criminals. Had the grandfather not been armed his granddaughter would have been violated and in all likelihood, they would have killed all three of them. This is exactly why the Second Amendment must be preserved at all costs. As dedicated as the police are, they cannot be everywhere at all times and in cases such as this, they don’t even know there was a crime until it’s reported afterward or the bodies of the victims are discovered. If it comes down to the victims or felons, I’ll side with the victims.
