According to NBC News, an AR 15 used in Self-Defense is still just a Weapon of Mass Murder
By Doug Book, Editor
In late March, 3 masked teens were shot dead after breaking into a private residence in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. The
homeowner’s son—Zach Peters-- heard a commotion coming from the living room.
Fearing for his father’s safety, he grabbed his rifle and shot the 3 intruders.
Each was pronounced dead at the scene.
These are the principal facts as they
took place at the Peters’ residence. But NBC News apparently believed this
information was not quite instructive enough for its viewing audience. So the
network decided it must embellish the story; that is, educate viewers about the
evils of the AR 15, whether it is used in self-defense or as the weapon of mass
murder everyone at NBC knows it to be.
It appears that author Zappo is a
little confused. In the case of Zach Peters, the rifle was used by the victim of the crime, not the
perpetrator[s]. Indeed, acting in self-defense, Peters shot 3 masked
individuals who broke into his home. How do his actions compare in ANY WAY with
those of the lunatics who committed murder in Newtown, San Bernardino or Colorado?
Why did NBC News
decide to put Mr. Peters on trial for his choice of weapons?
And now, Leroy Schumacher, the
grandfather of one of the individuals who broke into the Peters home, has
decided that what his grandson—Jacob Redfearn—did was “stupid,” but that he “did
not deserve to die.”
“There’s got to be a limit to that
law, I mean he [Peters] shot all three of them; there was no need for
that," said Schumacher.
The law Schumacher refers to is the
Oklahoma Stand Your Ground Law, which makes it legal to respond with deadly
force to a criminal who has broken into your Oklahoma residence and from whom you fear “imminent
peril of death or great bodily harm.”
Schumacher went on to maintain that
his grandson never got into trouble. Moreover, his shooting death by Zach
Peters was simply “unfair” as Redfearn and his accomplices had been armed with
nothing more than a knife and a set of brass knuckles. Evidently Peters failed
to take an objective inventory of the masked intruder’s weapons prior to pulling
How often has it been claimed by
family members of a felon that their poor, misunderstood relative had never before been in trouble with the law?
So a 17 year old “who never got into
trouble” is suddenly dead; the victim of a crazed homeowner who was callous enough to use a weapon which always kills.
Thank goodness NBC was around to explain what really happened! Otherwise some damned fool might have believed these poor kids had actually been guilty of a crime.
