OKLAHOMA CITY -- A Metro man takes on a man with a knife and wins. Maurice Johnson was catching up on some sleep Thursday afternoon when his burglar alarm sounds. He awakes to a man in his house in the 4300 block of North Blackwelder.
"I see a guy in a big black jacket holding a knife about that size and he tells me basically turn the alarm off and give me money."
Johnson, keeping his wits about him, tells the man to follow him to the back bedroom where there may be some cash.
The suspect keeps the knife held tightly against Johnson as they walk through the house.
Johnson says he pretends to rifle through his drawer to get money but got his gun instead and fires a shot at the suspect.
The suspect takes off immediately. No word on if the suspect was hit.
Too bad. He'll be more careful in choosing his next victims.
This couldnt happen in the Nation’s Capitol. The homeowner is not allowed to have a gun.
The author, a so-called journalist, could use a copy of Elements of Style by Strunk and White. More proof of why the MSM are losing subscribers.
A homeowner with good wits and common sense.
A man with a plan. : )
CONVENIENTLY, there was also no word, in the headline - no less, that a GUN was used to "fend off" the perp.
Great story to help me start the day off right! Thanks!
Makes my day.
Good thing he doesn't live in California. DiFi made sure he'd have to tell the robber, "Follow me to my gun safe. There's money there." It's just another perfect illustration that making people lock up their guns is idiotic.
Thanks for the morning laugh!
