Man Who Killed Three Home Invaders With An AR-15 Will Face No Criminal Charges

Brandon Morse, The Blaze

Twenty-three-year-old Zach Peters of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, caught three masked burglars breaking into his house one night, and the end result were three shots by Peters from his AR-15, and three dead burglars. The burglars brought two weapons — brass knuckles and a knife — but neither melee weapon fared well against Peters’ rifle.

While this use of the weapon for home defense upset some — including one of the deceased burglar’s grandfather who said the AR-15 made the fight unfair — Peters will suffer no criminal charges for his use of violent force with the rifle thanks to Oklahoma’s longstanding Castle Doctrine law. This law protects home and business owners from criminal charges after using deadly force in defense of property and family from intruders.

It should be noted, as Bearing Arms’ Bob Owens points out, that Peters not facing criminal charges is not due to the Stand Your Ground law, as the media attempted to paint it.

When America Was Truly The Land Of Opportunity

For [early immigrants] America was truly the land of opportunity. For the first time in their lives, many were truly free to pursue their own objectives. That freedom released the human energies which created the United States. There were few government programs to turn to and nobody expected them. But also there were few rules and regulations. There were no licenses, no permits, no red tape to restrict them. They found, in fact, a free market, and most of them thrived on it.
