This Cop’s Response To A Burglar That Got Shot Is Absolutely Perfect…


A homeowner exercises his Second Amendment right to self-defense, fatally shooting a burglar who forced his way into his occupied home.

On a Wednesday afternoon, a quiet Seattle suburb was rocked by a home invasion. According to reports from KIRO-TV, a burglar had forced his way into an occupied home in Lake Forest Park, Washington. It remains unclear whether the suspect knew whether the resident was at home or not.

Fortunately, the homeowner was at home and had availed himself of his Second Amendment rights. He shot the burglar several times, fatally wounding him. The homeowner acted quickly and decisively to protect himself and his property, which is exactly what the Second Amendment was designed to allow.

The Lake Forest Park Police Department said they were called to the scene shortly after 1:30 p.m. According to a statement posted on their Facebook page, officers arrived within minutes, attempted life-saving measures, secured the scene, and determined there was no threat to the public.

The statement also added that the Lake Forest Park Police Department, Washington State Police, and the Major Crimes Task Force Detectives “began conducting a thorough on-scene investigation which concluded around midnight.” It remains an ongoing investigation, and more information will be shared as it becomes available.

Meanwhile, few details have been released about the suspect. MyNorthwest has identified him as being a 37-year-old, but that’s about all we know.

“The homeowner says the suspect came at him, so he shot the burglar several times,” MyNorthwest reported. The homeowner acted in self-defense, a right that is protected by the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

One of the homeowner’s neighbors, Kelsey Cravens, said the burglary attempt made her feel uneasy. “Seeing a body in the doorway then all of the people, the cops, the forensics, it was a lot,” said Cravens, who knows the homeowner involved. “It’s really scary. It freaks me out because we thought this was a really nice, safe area when we moved here.”

She added she was glad her neighbor was OK. “I can’t wait to see my neighbor and give him a big hug. Thank gosh it wasn’t him,” Cravens said, according to KIRO. “I just want him to know that we’re looking out for him as well and really hope he’s alright, really hope he’s alright.”

This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms. Without a weapon, the homeowner could have suffered some serious injuries or worse, depending on what the burglar was armed with himself.

The Second Amendment protects our right to defend ourselves and our property against criminal threats. And with skyrocketing crime rates across the country, it’s more important than ever that Americans get a firearm and get trained in how to use it.

The police were able to respond quickly in this situation, but that’s not always the case. Burglars typically act faster than law enforcement can respond, and when they break into a home, they don’t like finding the homeowner. The homeowner in this case acted quickly and decisively to protect himself and his property, and his actions ensured there was no threat to the public.

The Second Amendment is under constant attack from those who seek to undermine our right to bear arms. But incidents like this serve as a stark reminder of why that right is so important. It’s up to responsible gun owners to continue fighting for our Second Amendment rights and to protect ourselves and our communities from criminal threats.
