Grandfather of burglar says it’s not ‘fair’ to defend home with an AR-15; here’s my response


Recently, three criminals were shot and killed during a home invasion robbery and now the grandfather of one of the suspects is complaining that it wasn’t a “fair fight.”

Maxwell Cook, 19, Jacob Redfearn, 17, and Jaycob Woodruff, 16, broke into a home in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. The owners were not at home, but their 23-year-old son, Zachary Peters, was and he grabbed his AR-15 the second he heard the commotion. He defended his life and his parents’ property by shooting all three boys once in the chest. Police have said it is a clear-cut case of self defense.

However, Redfearns’s grandfather, Leroy Schumacher, disagrees with that conclusion:
“What these three boys did was stupid. They knew they could be punished for it but they did not deserve to die.
“Brass knuckles against an AR-15? Come on, who was afraid for their life? There’s got to be a limit to that law. I mean he shot all three of them. There was no need for that.”
He says it’s not fair?  Fair is a place where they award blue ribbons to hogs and Holsteins.

If you are in my house un-invited as in a burglary, the owner (me) doesn’t have to look for “fair.” I have to look for my firearm… hopefully the one with the highest caliber is nearby.

This is the best deterrent. I don’t care what the perp comes in with.
Brass knuckle are for hand to hand combat. As a home owner I want rifle-to-burglar combat.

  1. a son who can shoot PRICELESS

  2. I'm surprised they didn't ask the 23-yr old if the gun was locked in a safe and the bullets were in a separate location and how long did it take him to unlock the safe, load the gun with bullets and go defend his property!

    Three people who pass the walls, windows, or doors without knocking AND being invited in, do not belong in the home, and it's not * time to interview * them to find out how they got lost inside your locked house!
