72-year-old Las Vegas Homeowner ventillates burglar

| February 6, 2013

Chief Tango sends us a link to the local news in Las Vegas where a 72-year-old man heard someone enter his home early Monday morning, so he went to his bedroom and retrieved his gun. When three men entered his bedroom, he used the gun as the tool it was intend and the three men left his home in an expeditious manner;

The second suspect, described as a Latin male, was last seen running eastbound into a neighborhood. He has not been found.


Officers found a third male dead from an apparent gunshot wound in the homeowner’s backyard. A handgun was also found in the backyard.


Metro Police said the homeowner will not face charges for this shooting and neither will another man who opened fire on a gun wielding robber over the weekend.

I don’t know where I heard it, but the only remedy for a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

    Someone once said (wish I could remember who), “Don’t screw with an old guy. They don’t have the strength to fight you, they’ll just kill you.”

  2. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    God Bless American and old guys with guns!

  3. UpNorth says:

    Nicely done. Cue Joey-Boy to come here and lament that someone was killed just because someone wanted to protect their “property”.

  4. Ex-PH2 says:

    See? Harsh words supported by ballistic missiles do work.

  5. Old Trooper says:

    HAs anyone noticed the trend, lately, that the bad guys are working in groups of 4 or more, now? So, when in New York, you had better be a crack shot, because you only have 7 rounds.

  6. Old Trooper says:

    *That should read “3” or more, not 4

  7. Lucky says:

    There is a quote at the beginning of Act of Valor about the problem with getting old is that some men stop seeing you as dangerous…

  9. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    @7 Which appears to be an unwise proposition in light of recent events!

    One less piece of sh1t to rob old people in the world….still plenty of work to be done.

  10. brat says:

    The quote about “the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” was from the NRA guy on Piers(*SPIT*) Morgan’s show a couple of weeks ago…

    And yeah, this old woman in the northern climes was cheering the NRA guy!

  11. NHSparky says:

    Why do you need a magazine that holds “X” rounds? To put “X” holes in “Y” perps.

    Thus endeth the sermon, thus endeth the lesson.

    They come in my house while I’m away, I’ll be aggravated. They come in my house while I’m there, and the cops are going to step over them to find out what happened. Real simple.

  13. Lucky says:

    I just finished certification for MACP Level one, the Army Combatives program, and according to Army Doctrine, the person who wins the fight is the person whose friends come first with a gun…

  14. Joe Williams says:

    I would like for to tell us what caliber they were using. Then we would know if we to use a more powerful weapon. Joe

  15. streetsweeper says:

    @ #14-Joe W.- The caliber that made one a decedent? lol

  16. Lucky says:

    Aim small, miss small, just saying caliber is irrelevant

  17. PintoNag says:

    Use a shotgun, won’t miss at all. 😉

  18. Lucky says:

    Hahaha Pinto, so true! If you use a shotgun, make it a Saiga, lots of ammo, and will make the anti gun retards freak!

  19. Ex-PH2 says:

    Double barrel shotgun loaded with rock salt. My brother used to use that on the rabbits in the garden.

  20. Lucky says:

    EX PH2: Saiga has a 20 drum mag, load that with rock salt shells and go to town…

  21. PintoNag says:

    @19 Liked to season and tenderize the meat all at the same time, huh?

    Gotta love folks who can multi-task!

  22. Ex-PH2 says:

    @12 🙂

  24. Joe Williams says:

    The reason I would like to know what caliber was used is that there have been a few surivors. I want only one story told mie. I 7&half loads ,will go thru the walls but will take out any evil doer. Joe

  25. Yat Yas 1833 says:

    Joe, “38, 39 whatever it takes”!

  26. Hack Stone says:

    Yat Yas 1833@25, is that a quote from Mr. Mom?

  27. Yat Yas 1833 says:

    Hack, it sure is! One of my favorite movies.

  28. Hack Stone says:

    You can’t go wrong with Michael Keaton. He was a great psycho in Pacific Heights.
