    Man fends off armed robbers with machete

    https://www.google.com/amp/amp.fox26...61951853-story




    "SARASOTA (FOX 13) - A machete-wielding homeowner confronted three would-be robbers early Thursday morning, holding one of them for deputies and chasing the others off in a dramatic melee that was caught on surveillance video.

    According to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, it was just after 4:45 a.m. when several suspects targeted a home on Dodge Avenue with the intention of robbing the men who were relaxing there.

    The home’s surveillance video shows the hooded men burst onto the porch waving a shotgun, machete, and a crowbar. One of the residents disappears out of view, then returns waving his own machete as the suspects scramble. Before long, the suspects are scrambling over the fence as other residents and even a small dog chase them around.

    The residents disarmed one of the suspects, later identified as Alen Beltran-Vazquez, and held him until deputies arrived. Deputies soon caught up with the two other would-be robbers in their suspected getaway car at a nearby gas station, along with two more suspects.

    All five men, said to be from South Florida, are being held at the Sarasota County Jail without bond."

    I choose the gun as the instrument of peace. When peace no longer seeks me I become the instrument.

    That could have been so much worse, in so many ways for so many people, but I seem to be reading about this sort of thing more often. it appears that Americans are fighting back again. Finally.
    One should not carry a firearm that works well when everything goes right, but, rather one that will carry the day when everything goes wrong.

    South Florida Thugs expanding their range. At least they are heading North instead of coming South to the Keys. Guess they are catching on fast that it is hard to get a way with just 1 road out.

    At least in states where they are permitted to fight back.

    But a machete vs. a shotgun? Somehow that's still a knife to a gun fight. a good thing the perp didn't decide to discharge that thing...

    So what goes for good guys with guns also goes for bad guys with guns, don't point a gun at someone if you aren't willing to pull the trigger. Apparently that shotgun was just for show, an attempt to scare the homeowner.
    Taurus 82 (4 inch barrel, 6 rounds)
    Marlin 60 (18 inch barrel, 18 rounds)
    SW22 Victory (5.5 inch barrel, 10 rounds)

    Nothing says "Holy crap that guy's crazy" more than a man charging you with a Machete. THAT is why he was able to win.
