Marshville home invasion suspect identifed
MARSHVILLE, N.C. -- The Union County Sheriff’s Office has identified a man shot and killed during a home invasion Thursday.Apparently the "small handgun" he had in his possession when he managed to break down the door didn't do him any good against the armed homeowners. I'll wait for everyone to stop feeling sorry for him. Just kidding. I like the way they say they're not sure who fired the fatal shot - I'd like to think he broke down the door to find two or three armed homeowners waiting for him, and when he raised his firearm to intimidate them, they opened fire.
Deputies say Robby Charles Blount, 25, broke into a home in the 3400 block of Lanesboro Road in Marshville around 1 a.m.
What frightens me most is not that there are people out there that will kick in your door at 1 in the morning to steal your stuff. There have been bad people since the dawn of time. What frightens me most is that there really are people out there who think we should just call 911, curl up in the fetal position, and wait for the police to get there rather than have tools with which to defend ourselves. Not content with their own inadequacies, they would force disarmament on the rest of us so that everyone is as helpless as they are.
Not me. Not ever.
