WATCH What Happens When Walmart Shoppers Catch Thug Who Stole 84-Yr-Old Woman’s Purse

When shoppers at a Texas Walmart witnessed a man steal an 84 year-old woman’s purse, they leapt into action.

Several customers at the Bellmead Walmart, near Waco, chased the man outside of the store and surrounded and tried to subdue him. Cellphone video of the incident shows a woman standing nearby aiming a handgun at the man, as well.

The alleged thief then managed to break away and began running. The woman with the gun fired a shot over the man’s head, causing him to drop briefly to the ground, which allowed his pursuers enough time to catch him and detain him.

ABC 13 reports that “[p]olice arrested 27-year-old Andre Dawson, and recovered the purse he allegedly stole from the elderly woman.”

Dawson is currently in the McLennan County Jail Monday in lieu of $2,000 bond, charged with theft of less than $100, according to KWTX-TV.

KWTX-TV reports:

The case of a woman who fired a shot as a suspected purse thief fled in the parking lot of the Bellmead Walmart Supercenter will be forwarded to a grand jury, police said Monday.

The woman, whose name has not been released, went to the Bellmead Police Department Friday night.

“She was released pending further investigation,” police said in a press release Monday afternoon.

Once the investigation is completed, “the case will be forwarded to the grand jury,” police said.

A witness said, the woman could be seen watching the chase unfold, then parking her truck and getting out with her handgun. After the incident was over, she calmly returned to her truck and drove away.

FBI Counterterrorism Expert Just Gave Chilling Warning To All Americans – You Need To See It

An FBI counterterrorism expert has delivered a stunning warning about terrorism right here in America. Although frightening, many believe it makes perfect sense.

Dr. Sebastian Gorka, an expert on counterinsurgency and counterterrorism and who runs The Gorka Briefing website, appeared on Fox News with Megyn Kelly on Wednesday to warn Americans that ISIS is already among us and that we shouldn’t sit back and expect the government to protect us.

“Don’t wait for Uncle Sam to protect you. Every American has a duty and responsibility to be aware of the threat and be prepared to protect themselves,” Gorka told Kelly.

ISIS is here, Gorka said. The guest then reminded his audience that there were at lest 82 ISIS suspects arrested in America already and that happened in just a 20-month period. He also noted that FBI director James Comey has reported that there are up to 900 terror-related investigations going on in every state in the union.

In October, Director Comey said that the number of investigations is “slowly climbing” as ISIS expands its reach into the U.S.

Comey also seemed to warn that the FBI is getting stretched too thin and worriedly said, “If that becomes the new normal…That would be hard to keep up.”

During his visit with Fox, Gorka also pointed out that the attacks in Paris has emboldened terrorists, not just in Europe. He said that sleeper cells all across the west will feel that success is at hand.

“The jihad is real, the jihad is global and they want to bring it to the shores of America,” Gorka said.

Americans have one saving grace that other nations don’t have: their Second Amendment rights.

“You have to be tactically aware,” Gorka insisted. “If you’re in a state, you’re in a municipality that allows you to carry a weapon you should do so. You should get training, you should carry it, your members of your family that are prepared to do so likewise.”


Sarah Palin Just Said 7 Words About Jesus That Has All Of The Libs Freaking Out

 Sarah Palin believes that protecting the innocent is part and parcel of doing God’s work on Earth. That’s why, on Thursday, she made a bold proclamation about Jesus and guns.

Jesus would fight for our Second Amendment,” was the headline over Palin’s post on her Facebook page.

“Shoot, even the Lord said to take up arms and defend yourself and protect the innocent! We’re expected to take responsibility to defend ourselves and to protect the innocent, certainly not relying on fallible leaders to do it for us,” Palin declared.

“Don’t believe me? Look it up! Luke 22:36. I wrote about it in #sweetfreedom. Proof, Jesus is a proponent of carrying!” she wrote.

Sweet Freedom is a new book of devotionals authored by Palin. During a radio interview about the book, she elaborated on her position.

“Jesus is telling us, take up your arms and defend yourself, don’t wait for somebody else to do. So even an issue like whether the Second Amendment should be defended or not is right there,” she said.

In her Facebook post, she also links to a video mocking President Obama’s gun control policy

“Taking concrete defense measures (ie. arming ourselves) away from the good guys? Yeah… that… we don’t want that. As this hilarious parody says, ‘…it will really suck when only the bad guys have guns,’” Palin posted.

Not everyone agreed with Palin’s position on Jesus.

“He meant to take up spiritual arms in times of troubles not physical swords you complete numpty. I can understand that … I’m a bloody Pagan!” Lissa Mitchell posted on Palin’s Facebook page.

But Palin had far more supporters than detractors.

“Thank you, Sarah, for keeping on keeping on ……….. despite all the darkness you and your family have had to endure! We LOVE you for being such a light in our dark world!” wrote Joanna Johnson Holbrook.

Obama’s Attempt To Attack Guns Just Backfired In A Way He Never Saw Coming

President Obama’s gun control agenda appears to be having the unintended consequence of boosting gun sales in the United States to record levels.

The Washington Beacon reports that the FBI processed a record number of background checks during the month of October: 1,976,759, which is a 373,290 increase over last year. October also marks the sixth month in a row background checks have been at record levels. So far in 2015, the bureau has processed 17,584,346 checks, which it on pace to beat 2013’s record of 21,093,273.

President Obama has made a point, after nearly every major mass shooting incident, to state the need for greater nationwide gun control measures. He did so perhaps most forcefully the night of the Oregon campus shooting, which took place on October 1. “[T]his is something we should politicize,” the president said adding, “This is a political choice that we make to allow this to happen every few months in America.”

Obama pointed to Australia, as an example the United States should follow. That nation adopted strict gun control laws in the 1990s, which resulted in over 600,000 firearms being confiscated from its citizens.

The president promised that every time a mass shooting occurs, he is going make the call for greater gun control. “Each time this happens I am going to say that we can actually do something about it, but we’re going to have to change our laws,” he said.

Currently, anyone who seeks to buy a firearm from a licensed gun dealer must undergo a background check. However, individuals who sell, trade or gift firearms to each other privately are not required to perform a check. The majority of weapons are sold through licensed dealers. Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have called for so-called “universal background checks” to require these private transfers be covered, undoubtedly with criminal liability for those who fail to do so.

The National Rifle Association opposes universal background checks because the move would necessitate a national gun registry of all firearms violating Americans’ right to privacy and infringe on their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre argues that “All around the world, registration has led to confiscation: Australia, Canada, Bermuda, Cuba, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Ireland. The list goes on.”

“Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are the best gun salespeople on the planet. The more they scream for new gun control laws the more guns walk off the shelves at gun stores,” said Alan Gottlieb, the head of the Second Amendment Foundation. “To quote the lyrics of Peter, Paul and Mary, ‘When will they ever learn, when will they ever learn.’”

Watch: Intruder Wakes Armed Texan In The Middle Of The Night, WORST Mistake Of His Life

When thieves break in and steal, they’re hoping to score some jewels, not lose the ones they have. But that’s exactly what happened to 37-year-old suspect Philip Owens of Lake Dunlap, Texas.  Owens allegedly broke into a Lake Dunlap home on Monday in the early morning hours via a locked sliding glass door, using a crow bar to gain entry. Owens was wearing a head lamp to provide the light needed to commit his crime.

Upon entry to the home, Owens was confronted by the homeowner who then shot Owens in the groin. Police investigators said Owens’ injuries are serious but not life threatening. The homeowner is credited with stopping the home invasion and possibly helping to solve other break in crimes in the area.

Police investigators said there have been a string of crimes involving theft of property in and around the Lake Dunlap area over the last few weeks and months. During their investigation it was found that Owens had recently pawned a lot of merchandise supposedly stolen from other homes in the area.

Investigators are trying to pick up the pieces of Owen’s trail and link the crimes back to Owen, if indeed he is responsible for committing other crimes in the area.

Investigators reported that equipment used to break into homes was found on the scene near Owen’s person. That equipment reportedly does not belong to the homeowner. The crimes that occurred in the area all happened with the same modus operandi. Entry was gained into the homes by a crow bar like the one found in Owen’s possession and some of the homes were entered via the sliding glass doors.

Owens and what is left of his jewels were taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center for treatment. The homeowner reported that he had no choice but to confront Owens for fear of his and his family’s lives.
