Kenneth Byrd, 67, was enjoying a quiet night at home with his wife Judy and his 19-year-old granddaughter when the knock came. It was a man claiming to have car problems and asking for assistance.
That's when two other men wearing black clothing, ski masks and gloves forced their way into the home and demanded money. All three of the invaders was armed.
At gunpoint, the Byrds were forced into the back of their own home and ordered to open the family safe. As Kenneth was opening the safe, the intruders became more aggressive with the 19-year-old granddaughter, ultimately trying to rape her.
Kenneth had had enough, he pulled a gun for the safe and opened fire, exchanging numerous gunshots with the intruders - and striking all three of them.
The three intruders fled the scene in Kenneth's Cadillac after stealing the keys.
Brandon Carver Stephens, 28, and Jamar Hawkins, 17, were taken into custody after going to a hospital in South Carolina to treat their gunshot wounds. Both criminals had to be airlifted to nearby trauma centers for emergency surgery.
20-year-old Jamie Faison was found dead inside the Cadillac, parked in front of his home, from multiple gunshot wounds.
Kenneth was struck multiple times while defending his family and was transported by helicopter to a local hospital. He is expected to make a complete recovery.
Now, think about this...
Had the 2nd Amendment being subverted by those who wish to ENSLAVE the American public that 19 year old girl would have been brutally raped and most likely killed along with her grandparents. For those who think it is the job of the police to protect the public YOU ARE WRONG!
It is the job of each American to protect themselves and their families. In the above case had Kenneth Byrd not acted the only thing the police would have done is write the report about a brutal gang rape and 3 dead family members.
The 2nd Amendment is not about GUNS it's about PEACE, the Divine right of SAFETY within ones own home and family, and most of all FREEDOM from all tyrants.
For those who say guns kill, so do 10, 000 other things which people die from each and every year. Should we just outlaw every thing by which people die from? No, of course not, but the LIBERALS who are really those looking to ENSLAVE people would say SURE!
A small list of things that kill...
