My cousin, Scott, sends us a link from his local news near Rochester, NY where two RIT students were confronted by thieves in their home;
“They were waiting for me at the bottom of the stairs,” said Boise.
One of them had a handgun trained on Boise.
Within moments, Boise screamed. His cries were heard by his roommate, Raymond.
“It wasn’t like a, ‘I stepped by stepped on a piece of glass’ kind of scream,” Raymond said. “So, I instinctively went to my gun bag.”
Raymond owns an AR-15 which is a military style rifle.
Raymond estimated that just five seconds passed until the door started to open. It was one of the intruders.
“By the time I had it out and ready, one of the men came at my door, slowly opened it, saw that there was a barrel on the other side and from there backed out,” Raymond said.
The two men fled the apartment.
Nothing was taken and no shots were fired.
So, the evil assault rifle and the scary way it looks actually frightened off two armed and hardened criminals. Is someone going to tell the legacy Governor Cuomo?
“I’m happy he saved my life. I was very thankful he had his (gun),” said Boise.
Raymond, who is from New York City, said he uses the rifle for sport shooting at local gun ranges.
“The weapon was legal and he protected his property, said Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard. “We’re thankful that no one was injured,” he said.
So, the gun that protected these two students will be illegal at this time next year, if it’s really an AR15. You know, the legal gun with all of those scary features that frighten the governor and other criminals. Maybe the criminals can come back later after the gun isn’t protecting these students anymore.
