College student shoots home invader, saves 10 lives
Yet another reason to keep a gun in the house . . .
Several months ago, in the notoriously dangerous neighborhood of College Park in Atlanta, Georgia, two armed criminals broke into a house party of students.
After confiscating the group’s valuables, the invaders split the men and women up into different rooms.
Witnesses say the perpetrators then counted their rounds and discussed if they had "enough" ammunition.
The students believe the gunmen were going to rape and murder the entire group of students, who were celebrating a birthday at the end of the semester.
However, one male student, whose identity is being protected by police and local media, retrieved a handgun from his backpack and fired at the thug who was detaining the men.
(That is: One smart student had prepared for a night in College Park, Atlanta.)
The criminal fled the apartment under the threat of injury and never returned.
The student, continuing on into the girls’ room, found the other thug, 23-year-old Calvin Lavant, preparing to rape his first victim.
The student exchanged gunfire with Lavant, lethally wounding him in the process. Lavant fled through a window and died in front of his apartment, only one building away.
One of the female students was injured during the exchange, but doctors expect a full and complete recovery.
So what’s the point
A student saved the girls from rape, and saved the whole group of 10 people (including himself) from murder . . . and he did it with a handgun.
This is a perfect example of how ludicrous "big city gun laws" are. What if this had happened in New York, Chicago, or any of the other big cities that criminalize their citizens’ self defense?
Yes, we would be reading an entirely different story — one so horrendous that we would shudder at the very words.
Either this whole group of friends would have been raped and murdered by these two sorry excuses for human beings . . . or the hero of this story would be facing prison time for firearm possession and murder.
Thankfully, however, Atlanta hasn’t outlawed self-defense yet. And since someone had a gun and was willing to use it, innocent life was preserved.
Congratulations to the unnamed hero of this story. You saved your friends’ lives.
