Sunday morning feel good story

| February 24, 2013

In Hickory, NC, early Saturday morning, Paul Ohle was in a fight for his life when another man kicked in his front door. Ohle reached for his phone to call police, but the man knocked it from his hands. Next, Ohle reached for his shotgun, but the intruder wrenched it from his hands and began beating him with the long gun. Ohle had a revolver in his bedroom and finally got to it and ventilated the burglar;

Ohle said he finally broke free and ran to his bedroom, where he grabbed a revolver and shot the man to death.

“I hate I had to do it,” he said, “but I shot him.”

Hickory Police have not released the alleged intruder’s name, saying they haven’t notified his family yet. They haven’t said whether charges could be filed in the case.

Ohle said police took him to the hospital, and also searched his home and took his gun and cell phone as evidence.

Neighbor Reggie Moore saw police at Ohle’s house, and heard what happened.

“I hate it for the young man’s family,” he said, “but when you do something like that, you get what’s coming to you.”

    Another serving of justice… Brought to you by the 2nd amendment.

    And now the liberal types who scream “But what if the weapon gets taken away from you?!” now have an answer.

    So much for Bite Me’s shotgun theory.

  4. A Proud Infidel says:

    But as usual, we’ll hear liberals whining about the now-deceased perp being the victim because he/she/it was “a victim of society”. Anyone who sees things like I do will see it as one less thieving punk that the taxpayers have to feed, clothe, and give free cable TV to!

    This is within 25 miles of me. The Hickory Daily Record has this story, but does not offer any new information.

    Very scary. That thug bastard very nearly killed that home owner. When seconds count, the police are minutes away.

    And Bite-Me says all we need is a shotgun and our homes and our lives will be safe.

    Good for the geezer.

    I love a happy ending. Don’t get me wrong, I am adamant about protecting ALL of our rights, including the 2nd Amendment but I have to think, what kind of neighborhood are these people living in and what kind of lives are they leading when someone kicks in their door? I don’t think I’ve ever pissed off anybody that much, not even my ex-wives. Are there people going around randomly kicking in doors?
