Murfreesboro, Tennessee — An armed and prepared Murfreesboro, Tennessee homeowner won’t face any charges after he shot and killed one man and injured another during a burglary attempt on Friday, May 5, 2023.
According to police reports, the two men, identified as 52-year-old Kevin Ford and 42-year-old Clifford Wright, broke into the home in the 100 block of January Street wearing gloves and masks.
Once inside, they used a Taser on the family’s dog and held the teenage son at gunpoint.
The homeowner, whose identity has not been released, responded by grabbing his gun and shooting the two men multiple times. When the police arrived at the scene, they found Ford dead at the front door. Wright was found with multiple gunshot wounds at the Salvation Army on Main Street, where he was treated and then taken into police custody on charges of aggravated burglary, attempted aggravated robbery, convicted felon in possession of a firearm, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent felony.
The incident is still under investigation, but the homeowner is NOT facing any charges. The need for law-abiding homeowners to defend themselves and their loved ones is growing, and this case underscores the importance of having the ability to protect one’s home.
Mostly liberal Democrats continue to whine and debate about the need for gun control in the United States, with many mistakenly arguing that stricter gun laws could prevent incidents like this from occurring. However, Americans with a clear understanding of the Second Amendment know that responsible gun ownership is a fundamental fact and that law-abiding citizens have every right to defend themselves and their property.
This incident highlights the importance of being prepared with the tools and knowledge to use lethal force to defend against a surprise home invasion. While no one wants to imagine the worst-case scenario, but it is essential to have a plan in place and to know how to defend oneself in case of a threat or to protect your property. Homeowners should consider investing in multiple rifles, shotguns, or handguns, receiving training in self-defense, and keeping firearms stage for fast access for home defense protection.
The incident in Murfreesboro was a tragic event for the homeowner, but we are glad he and his family survived. While the investigation is ongoing, it is clear that the homeowner acted in self-defense and that he will not face any charges. Every week, good guys with guns continue to destroy the debate over gun control with their successful self-defense actions.
An armed society is a polite society.
