As reported, 24 year old D’Mario Brown attempted to rob several people inside a North Charleston, SC home. This was at least Brown’s second home invasion attempt of the day, according to police. An occupant of the home fired in self defense, fatally wounding the home invader with one shot.
Home invasion robberies are a deadly threat to the occupants of a home. The criminals who commit such crimes often murder, shoot, stab, rape, torture, kidnap, and permanently injure and disfigure their victims. The result is that the lives of law abiding, innocent people can be ended or ruined in an instant, all because of a criminals actions.
Here we have a criminal who, in a single day, tried to victimize multiple people in multiple homes. Given that violent robbers tend to be career criminals, it is unlikely that this was Brown’s first time robbing people. Nor is it likely that this would have been Brown’s last robbery, but for the actions of this heroic citizen who defended himself and the other residents of the home. The streets of North Charleston are now slightly safer, and this is yet another example of why I support gun rights.
