A 92-year-old World War II veteran is upset with deputies for how they treated him after he shot an intruder. Upon their arrival, the police told the shooter, Earl Jones, to lift his hands and they took his rifle.

According to Jones, three men broke into his rural Kentucky home in Boone County. When Jones heard them in his basement at about 2 a.m. Monday, he grabbed his .22 caliber rifle and sat in a chair, waiting on the burglars.

When the door opened, Jones fired a shot, killing Lloyd Maxwell, 24. Two robbers with Maxwell, Ryan Dalton and Donnie Inabnit, were apprehended and charged with second degree burglary.

“I was hoping another one would come up; I aimed right for his heart,” said Jones. “I didn’t go to war for nothing. I have the right to carry a gun. That’s what I told the police this morning.”

Jones believes the rifle used in the shooting should not have been taken by police.

“How am I going to protect myself if they come back looking for revenge?” he asked. “It was simple. That man was going to take my life. He was hunting me. I was protecting myself.”

One shot, one kill. (and with a .22)


Perfect gun control.

The two surviving robbers should be charged with Capital Murder for the death of their partner. They created the situation in which a life was lost! It's just like today's police to go after a 92 year old. The elderly and disabled are easy targets for today's cops..., who are hired politically and NOT due to their merit or having the guts to do the job!!!!
I recall seeing a WW II sniper in his nineties on TV a few months ago. He was sent to a military sniper training school where they presented him with a reproduction model of his old Army rifle. The old man tried it out and was still able to shoot tight groups!!!!

There was a "suggestion" on another forum that this gentleman should have his rifle replaced by the membership. Various suggestions were made with a .30 Carbine (I think it was an Iver Johnson mentioned) and how much a Vet like this man might enjoy it. (And need it now!)

Another .22 rifle would be more appropriate I think.
The man knows his weapon (one shot, one kill) so why change it?

He put a value on the scum bag thief's life of maybe 3.5 cents!



Maybe we should chip in for a S&W 15-22.

With a couple of magazines he could take out an entire platoon of bad guys!

Very Happy

Yeah,I saw the video just a minute ago and the weapon the old man was holding looked like an old single-shot shotgun.
A 22 is nasty though! A little bullet moving fast and tends to bounce around after it penetrates the human body. I once heard about a man who was shot in the abdomen once with a 22 rifle, by his wife. He reportedly died enroute to the hospital. An autopsy revealed 16 holes in his organs from that little bullet bouncing around.

They took his gun? That's just wrong, and sounds possibly against the 4th amendment. Did they have due process of law to deprive him of his property?
