Burglar Enters Home in Broad Daylight, Instantly Regrets His Decision

This is what the Second Amendment is for and why we need to protect it.

A homeowner and his girlfriend, who grew tired of being victimized, managed to thwart a burglary suspect’s attempt at raiding their home by exercising their Second Amendment right to self-defense.

Troy Eaton and his girlfriend Dawn Lisa-DesVoigne returned home to discover the suspect trying to flee the residence with their belongings, but held him there at gunpoint until authorities arrived.

Eaton and Lisa-DesVoigne of Happy Valley, Oregon, had just arrived home as the incident was occurring, according to KOIN-TV.

Lisa-DesVoigne and Eaton told the outlet that their home had been burglarized three times in the last 10 days, and they installed a home security system to help thwart or discourage would-be thieves.

“We were tired of being victimized, tired of being traumatized and violated,” Lisa-DesVoigne said.

She added that the break-ins have been “heartbreaking,” because many of the items stolen — which have included antiques, electronics, and paintings, according to KPTV-TV — belonged to her parents.

“These are things my parents collected their whole lives,” she explained.

The couple’s new security system didn’t stop 20-year-old Edward Cerf from breaking into the couple’s home in the middle of the day, according to the KPTV. The system did its job, however, and the couple spotted Cerf reportedly breaking into the home.

They immediately took action to stop him.

Lisa-DesVoigne said that Eaton held Cerf at gunpoint while she phoned authorities, who arrived just minutes later and took Cerf into custody.

“We were determined to keep him there,” she said. “It makes me feel like I took some power back from them, from these criminals.”

Eaton added later that he definitely didn’t want to kill anyone, but the situation had become frustrating enough that he felt they needed to take some sort of action to bring the whole to an end.

Apparently Cerf wasn’t working alone. Police discovered the man’s accomplice, Gabriella Solis, asleep in the getaway car a block away from the scene of the crime. Solis stated that her role was to be the “eyes and ears” for Cerf during the burglary.

Both have been arrested and charged with second-degree burglary and were booked into the Clackamas County Jail.

After Notre Dame Fire, Man Arrested with Gas Gans in NYC Cathedral

The news comes just days after Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was accidentally set ablaze.

gasoline fire arson

The hellish blaze that engulfed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris this week was a disheartening spectacle that none of us would ever hope to see again, anywhere in the world. For many, the timing of the inferno was almost too coincidental to be accidental, given that this is the beginning of Holy Week for the Christian faith, culminating with Easter Sunday in just a few days.  Online conspiracy theorists have long been trying to tie these threads together in order to fit their own narrative, mind you, complete with the occasional race-baiting insinuation that this was Islamic terrorism. To be clear, there is no evidence of a criminal act having taken place at Notre Dame. In contrast, however, police in New York City have arrested a man who looked to clearly be ready to reenact the Notre Dame blaze at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral just yesterday. A New Jersey man was arrested after entering St. Patrick’s Cathedral carrying two cans of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters, the New York Police Department said, just days after flames ravaged the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. The unidentified 37-year-old man had pulled up Wednesday night in a minivan outside the landmark cathedral on Fifth Avenue in midtown Manhattan, walked around the area, then returned to his vehicle at 7:55 p.m. and retrieved the gasoline and lighter fluid, said NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller. That’s scary enough…but it gets stranger. “His basic story was he was cutting through the cathedral to get to Madison Avenue. That his car had run out of gas,” Miller said. “We took a look at the vehicle. It was not out of gas and at that point he was taken into custody.” The incident comes as another potential copycat criminal was found dead after “obsessing”…

North Korea Taunts USA with New Weapons Test

North Korea has a history of diplomatic ebbs and flows, but this is the sort of bait-and-switch insult that could have Trump ready to wallop Kim Jong Un.

Kim Jong Un

Perhaps it was always too good to be true. Donald Trump, a President who was widely lambasted by the liberal left on account of his political inexperience, became an unprecedented hero in an unlikely situation with North Korea early into his presidency. For reasons perhaps still unknown, Trump’s opening of a dialogue with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un suddenly seemed to bring the DPRK back into the global community.  Part of this resurgence included, as it must, a promise of denuclearization by the hermit kingdom. Somewhere along the way, things have fallen off the rails, likely at the behest of Kim himself. Now, ever more astonishingly, the dainty despot is pushing the envelope even further with claims of a new weapons test. North Korea said Thursday that it had test-fired a new type of “tactical guided weapon,” its first such test in nearly half a year, and demanded that Washington remove Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from nuclear negotiations. The test, which didn’t appear to be of a banned mid- or long-range ballistic missile that could scuttle negotiations, allows North Korea to show its people it is pushing ahead with weapons development while also reassuring domestic military officials worried that diplomacy with Washington signals weakness. And that’s not all:  The DPRK is also now taking pot shots at Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Separately, the North Korean Foreign Ministry accused Pompeo of playing down the significance of comments by leader Kim Jong Un, who said last week that Washington has until the end of the year to offer mutually acceptable terms for an agreement to salvage the high-stakes nuclear diplomacy. Both the demand for Pompeo’s removal from the talks and the weapon test point to North Korea’s displeasure with the deadlocked negotiations. Was this all a ruse by North…
