Another domestic violence murder

An angry man plus a gun.

Officials are searching for a man they said shot two females, killing one of them, Saturday night in Rowan County.

Deputies were dispatched to Richfield Road for a reported home invasion and shots fired at 9:50 p.m.

An initial report said that a black female had been kidnapped from the residence.

When deputies arrived they found two people had been shot — a 17-year-old girl and a 54-year-old woman.

Deputies said they also located the black female who was reported kidnapped and she had not been harmed.

Investigators said the shooting was a result of an ongoing domestic situation between an estranged husband and wife.  The woman who was first thought to be kidnapped, (Victim), had taken out a restraining order against her husband, who is identified as (Suspect), 33.

The 17-year-old died.

Is this another case of a gun in the home being more likely to kill a member of the family?


Or is it another case of a violent criminal being a violent criminal?

Remember, when the anti-gunners scream about domestic violence, they ignore the fact that violent criminals have families too.

The headline is “Altercation leads to murder.”

Police believe (Suspect), 20, and (Victim). got into a fight around midnight.

Police said (Suspect) left, came back with a gun and shot (Victim) in the chest.

“See!” say the anti-gunners. “We told you that just having a gun around will turn simple fights into murder!”



Ordinary people don’t murder each other. There’s a big difference between getting mad at someone and shooting them to death.

At least no one used a gun

This is a terrible story.

A man was arrested Wednesday night in connection with a triple homicide that happened this past August in Morganton.

All three of the victims died from “blunt force trauma.”


Victim 1

Good thing no one had a gun. Someone might have gotten hurt.

God looks out for fools and drunkards

Sometimes the fools are criminals.

Police in Concord said a man who was breaking into a Radio Shack store survived a fall of more than 60 feet after he tried to get away from officers early Wednesday morning.

The suspect who fell was one of three suspects captured

Suspect 1

Suspect 2

Suspect 3

Birds of a feather…

Maybe it’s time to do another t-shirt run

It looks like CSGV is planning on abusing the English language again in an attempt to raise some cash.


As Joe Huffman points out:

The “well regulated” part of the Second Amendment has been explained so many times that the only way someone who follows the issue could be unaware of true meaning of this is if they put significant effort into denial. For example in the Heller Decision we find (pages 23 and 24):

Finally, the adjective “well-regulated” implies nothing more than the imposition of proper discipline and training. See Johnson 1619 (“Regulate”: “To adjust by rule or method”); Rawle 121–122; cf. Va. Declaration of Rights §13 (1776), in 7 Thorpe 3812, 3814 (referring to “a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms”).

So Everitt, mocking people for failure to understand the meaning of “well regulated”, gets it totally wrong himself.

So maybe I need to do my own shirt. I have a phrase I trot out whenever people try out the “Well Regulated” gambit.

“Well Regulated” means “Subject to Lots of Laws” in exactly the same way that “Infantry” means “Filled with Children.”

I think I could sell 250 shirts faster than CSGV. And I promise to spend all my money on ammo and guns.

There’s a nice 9mm Walther PPQ down at Fuquay Gold and Guns…

What goes around, comes around

In this life, you get what you give.

Police in Shelby have arrested and charged a 23-year-old after an overnight shooting left a man dead and a woman injured.

And who are the people involved?


Victim 1

The victim was only recently released from prison after being convicted of Manslaughter and ADWWITKISI.

For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

NCGunBlog and Triangle Tactical Podcast go to a press conference

I’d like to say that “hilarity ensued,” but it didn’t. Here’s the video shot by Luke of Triangle Tactical Podcast.

I question the Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler at about the 7:30 minute mark.

Lots of press were in attendence and I did an on camera interview with WRAL and talked with the reporter for the News and Observer. The current WRAL video doesn’t have my interview, but here’s the article.

Deep-fried anything may be allowed at the N.C. State Fair, but guns are not, and now a pro-gun group plans to sue the state to allow those with concealed-carry permits to bring their weapons onto the state fairgrounds.

I gave the reporter some good red meat, so I hope she’ll update the video for the 11 o’clock hour and include my interview.

Here’s the N&O

The state’s most recent gun law may allow concealed firearms at this year’s N.C. State Fair, where they have been forbidden for decades.

Here’s WNCN

North Carolina Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler said Tuesday that he plans to continue a ban on weapons at the North Carolina State Fair this year.

And here’s ABC11

A pro-gun group says it will sue over a decision by North Carolina Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler to continue a ban on conceal/carry weapons at the NC State Fair.

Keep in mind that these stories get updated over time, so let me know if you see anything interesting in them. If I suddenly appear in the WRAL story, let me know.

Probably a domestic

It’s likely that this will be recorded as a domestic violence incident.

A Raleigh man is accused of stabbing and seriously injuring another man, according to an arrest warrant.

They have the same last name and live at the same address.



Criminals have families too.
