SCRATCH TWO FRAKEN GREMLINS … THREE CHEERS FOR JOE HORN.

I don’t care what any bleeding heart, hand wringing, weepy eyed libtard thinks.  This guy is number one and should get a medal.
Probably old news to the blog site but I just found it in the Telegraph.
Two gremlins less. GOOD! 

Texan ‘hero’ shoots and kills burglars

A Texas man has become a hero after he took it upon himself to shoot and kill two burglars who had broken into his neighbour’s house.

Audio: 911 call: ‘I’ve got a shotgun, you want me to go shoot them?’

Joe Horn called the police to report the burglary and then stepped outside and shot the burglars dead as they left the neighbour’s house.

advertisementA recording of the call suggests Mr Horn, 61, was itching to kill the two burglars.

“Don’t go outside the house,” the 911 operator pleaded.

“You’re going to get yourself shot if you go outside that house with a gun. I don’t care what you think.”

“You want to make a bet?” Horn answered.

“I’m going to kill them.”

Admirers, including several of his neighbours, say Mr Horn is a hero for killing the burglars, protecting his neighbourhood and sending a message to would-be criminals. Critics call him a loose cannon. His attorney says Mr Horn just feared for his life.

Prosecuting Mr Horn could prove difficult in Texas, where few people sympathise with criminals and many have an almost religious belief in the right to self-defence.

The case could test the state’s self-defence laws, which allow people to use deadly force in certain situations to protect themselves, their property and their neighbours’ property.

Horn was home in Pasadena, about 15 miles southeast of Houston, on Nov 14 when he heard glass breaking, said his attorney, Tom Lambright.

He looked out the window and saw 38-year-old Miguel Antonio DeJesus and 30-year-old Diego Ortiz using a crowbar to break out the rest of the glass.

He grabbed a 12-gauge shotgun and called 911, the police emergency number, Lambright said. “Uh, I’ve got a shotgun,” he told the dispatcher.

“Uh, do you want me to stop them?”

“Nope, don’t do that,” the dispatcher responded.

“Ain’t no property worth shooting somebody over, OK?”

Horn and the dispatcher spoke for several minutes, during which Mr Horn pleaded with the dispatcher to send someone to catch the men and vowed not to let them escape.

Over and over, the dispatcher told him to stay inside.

Horn repeatedly said he couldn’t.

When the men crawled back out the window carrying a bag, Mr Horn began to sound increasingly frantic.

“Well, here it goes, buddy,” Mr Horn said as a shell clicked into the chamber.

“You hear the shotgun clicking, and I’m going.”

A few seconds passed.

“Move,” Horn can be heard saying on the tape. “You’re dead.”

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
