FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A Broward County homeowner turned the tables on a would-be robber and the confrontation was caught on camera.
The suspect who was shot has been charged, and the homeowner who shot him wants other would-be bad guys to take note.
The homeowner, who did not want to reveal his identity, told Local 10 News he was alone and spotted the two men outside his home.
They split up, and one of them walks straight into the home’s carport, grabbing items that don’t belong to him, wheeling out a pricey pressure washer.

The suspect who was shot received help from employees at the car dealership, who called for help.
He suffered non-life-threatening injuries and has been charged with burglary.

And before you ask, I believe it was considered a burglary which is a Forcible Felony. Add to that Disparity of Force and simply that a Law Abiding home owner should not have to deal with BS politics.

 

And I saw this one over Divemedic’s

ORLANDO, Fla. – Police said a suspect was shot after entering an Orlando business angry and armed with a machete, attacking two employees and forcing one of them to open fire.
Investigators said that a suspect, a man in his 30s, entered the business, appearing upset and armed with a machete. An argument ensued between the suspect and two employees of the business. The suspect then allegedly attacked them with the machete.
One of the victims reportedly discharged a firearm at the suspect, but he was still able to flee the business on foot. However, a man who matched the description of the suspect and who had a gunshot wound was later located and apprehended by officers.

The machete wielder has been identified:

Records show 31-year-old Oraine Mitchell Grant came into the business seemingly upset with a large knife, later identified as a machete. Grant argued with a woman and a man who worked there, then went to stab the employees, investigators said. Officers said as Grant was trying to lunge at the employees, one of the workers shot him.

I did a quick search and I got a return of somebody with the same name and same age from Brooklyn, New York and with an arrest in 2015 involving  a  woman.

Oraine P. Mitchell-Grant of Grote Street was charged Thursday night with third-degree assault, assaulting a police officer and second-degree harassment following an attack on a Grote Street woman.

Machetes are the trendy weapon in New York City, just check YouTube. But in Florida? Every other household in Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe counties have at least one. And people also know if you wave your machete in anger, you will get a wee bit (lot) of violence back with the blessings of the local PD and prosecutors.

Welcome to Florida.

One thought on “Florida defensive uses of guns; A twofer.”
  1. Notice there were no deaths? Gun hating Progressives keep telling me gun owners are all homicidal maniacs. Where are the dead bodies?

    They didn’t keep shooting until the scum were dead.
    They didn’t chase them down and finish them off.
    They stopped the threat.
    Then they stopped shooting.
