A man waving a samurai sword around at residents of a Jacksonville condominium complex was fatally shot early Saturday morning by a neighbor whose unit he tried to enter….Although it’s still early in the investigation, Mills said the homeowner who shot the man acted in self-defense and will not be charged.
Even a “Wall Hanger” sword can be a VERY deadly weapon. Also unless you’re closely inspecting one, and know your swords its damn near impossible to tell if you’re dealing with a razor sharp weapon, and just a moderately sharp piece of metal in the shape of a sword.
Of course with all the crowing about the Shooting of Travyon Martin shooting, the anti-rights people would like this man in jail…or possibly swinging from a lamp post for shooting an armed man with a history of mental illness and countless witnesses.
Of course the antis would also rather let the police handle this, possibly after somebody has been lethally hacked up with a sword. It wouldn’t be THAT big a deal, I mean it isn’t a “Gun Death”, right?
I’m glad the homeowner was proactive and nobody besides the aggressor was hurt.
