Events can at times, get murky when advocates are worthy of press time, based on the latest trend in a particular issue. After the Trayvon Martin incident, the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting and the Sandy Hill Elementary School shooting, the Second Amendment has been under attack by those who are under the impression, there’s absolutely no reason whatsoever to use a gun. Well, let’s investigate.
Early one Saturday morning, Brian Claunch, a reported schizophrenic who lost an arm and a leg in a train accident became enraged when refused a cigarette and soda. His caretaker call police and a few hours later, Claunch was dead, shot in the head by Houston Police Officer Matt Marin, who cited the standard excuse, he was "in fear of the safety of his partner and the safety of himself."
About 7:30 on a Monday morning last September, Crystal Scott, a Chase Bank employee, was on her way to work. After a minor traffic accident with Jonathan Ables, according to the Harris Sheriff’s Office, Scott called 911 to report the accident, as well as, the actions of Ables, who ‘would pull ahead of her then suddenly slam on his brakes.’
According to Scott and witnesses at the scene, both pulled into a Shell station on 1960. Ables approached her vehicle in a threatening manner, shouting, beating on her vehicle and trying to open her door. Ables was shot dead by Scott, who cited, ‘she feared for her life.’
Here we have two deaths by guns, one sanctioned and the other results in a murder charge. Keep in mind, Scott’s account of what happened seemed to match that of witnesses in the area, sheriff's deputies said.’ Scott also had a concealed weapon permit for the gun used. What’s wrong with this picture?
According to State Senator, Jeff Wentworth, the state's "Castle Doctrine" law, Senate Bill 378, ‘presumes that the use of force is reasonable and necessary when someone is unlawfully and with force entering or attempting to enter your occupied home, car, or place of business, or when someone is committing or trying to commit a crime against you.'
Scott’s case is just another attack on the Second Amendment and that disgraces the Harris Country Grand Jury, as well as the Harris County District Attorney’s office.
