Refusing To Be A Victim

Lance Thomas was a successful watch dealer in West Los Angeles for fourteen years. When a series of crimes began occurring in his neighborhood he decided to buy a gun to defend himself. What happened next is an all American tale of heroic self defense in the face of hardened criminals.

    He could have fired a “warning shot” and not hurt the poor robbers. This is just so wrong on every level! NOT!! Too bad he didn’t kill all of these punks!!

    • RobinHood

      Agreed. Warning shot my ***. If they’re robbing you, and you make the decision to pull a gun, you’ve already made your decision to kill because if you don’t, THEY will be the one to put you down. A Mexican standoff is also unnecessary.

      • christianh

        Can you say bloodthristy FREAK…?

        • Chris Hunter

          If you pull a gun, be prepared to fire it. You shoot to kill. Can you say pansy freak?

          • christianh

            I’m Airborne and beat people with my hands…

          • Chris Hunter

            well, the next time someone breaks into your house with a shotgun, let me know how that turns out for you.

          • nathan bedford

            wouldn’t being in the military, and in a combat MOS, make you a blood thirsty freak as well? don’t tell me you joined to serve yer cuntry, because that’s bullshit, you’re serving a masonic pile of shit.

          • Rabbit Hole

            Airborne eh? I figured. How much an ounce?

          • Michael Bowen

            BS

          • Frank Szabo

            It never ceases to amaze me how many rancid libturds are military bad boys.
            BTW – my farts are airborne.

          • BaronMatrix

            I’m not a liberal… And you’re just deflecting cause your lack of skills embarrasses you subconsciously…

            AIRBORNE..

            Maybe you should have gotten in line for balls…

          • Travis McDavid

            No training exists that can close the distance between targets faster than a live round. If you were really Airborne (or any combat military mos at all), you’d know that.

          • BaronMatrix

            Another one doesn’t have the balls… Where I grew up, the Army was where we used weapons…

          • Travis McDavid

            All you’re doing here is trolling. When the bad guys have weapons that can kill you from a distance and you do not, you will lose. I was also in the army. Being airborne does not make you a ninja, or whatever [email protected]@ss you are pretending to be. Post something relevant based on fact/empirical data or go troll in a liberal or conservative forum.

          • sokr8ez .

            You claimed that bombs and grenades cannot behead a person. You are a liar.
            So much for your expertise in weaponry and tactics.

          • K.J. Pierson

            Ah the military tough guy. Runs off to fight all the enemies abroad while leaving the enemies here to do as they please.

        • Phil Ossiferz Stone

          Honestly, how is defending yourself against violent crooks bloodthirsty? What kind of weird private universe do you live in?

        • Kile

          The bloodthirsty ones are the criminals.

        • Mike Roberts Sr.

          i’d love to see your crimanal record…

          • BaronMatrix

            It’s shorter than yours… My job requires a background check…

          • Mike Roberts Sr.

            if its shorter than mine you must have one then, i dont have one i have two sons that are deputies one is a K9 deputy both have been deputies for 11 and 9 years a daughter thats been for 8 years and an older daughter thats a federal investigator for the FDA for 14 yrs, i have to keep my nose clean and i support law enforcement UNTIL they cross the line

          • BaronMatrix

            Quiet dick… I just said I have to take background checks for my job so take your Howdy Doody stories and shove em…

          • Dave Myers

            This guy is obviously a internet tough guy who is mad because he gets his ass kicked on a daily basis and has to talk shit on here where he feels safe. Definitely not any kind of military training in his lib-tard brain.

          • BaronMatrix

            No, you only have balls in groups… I’m even worse on the streets cause i can look you in your cowardly eyes…

          • Dave Myers

            Only weak, angry, liars, like you, talk about how badass they are. Point proven. The only thing you “beat with your hands” is your pud, go back to playing WoW and ask your mom to bring you some pizza rolls down to the basement. Troll ^

          • BaronMatrix

            I haven’t hit anyone in a decade… I manipulate the English language until you attack the POTUS… Then like the Secret Service, I make you a victim…

          • Dave Myers

            You haven’t hit anyone because you are the one taking the hits, you are weak and run your mouth and that’s why you get beat down. As for your weird ass POTUS/SS comment, I can only assume you are a liberal/communist just like Obama. Your mother should have had an abortion. Troll.

          • BaronMatrix

            You’re a funny guy… Sounds like you can’t take the pressure form a scientist and poet… I got beat when I was around 7… Not since…

            Mainly because I don’t go around attacking people’s culture, but partly because I played football in high school, joined the Airborne and became DEATH FROM ABOVE…

            I was almost a boxer, but I couldn’t make a living trying to not get punched…

      • Jeremy Cline

        warning shots are a felony in most states.

    • Leftbehind

      Put a sign up that says . Due to the increased cost of Ammunition , No Warning Shots will be Fired ! 🙂 lol

    • Bill Brown

      Ammo too expensive for warning shots.

  • David R Priest

    Go ahead…..make my day!

  • JB

    He looks like he’d fit right in the wild west.. xD – Punks be stupid trying to rob him in the first place.

  • DeeDee1213

    So the Criminal who was attempting ARMED Robbery ..only got 5 years ????
    GOOD Job on the part of the Shop Owner…!!! However, the sentence for the THUG should have been much longer

    • 18square

      The important thing is he will still be able to vote demoCRAP!

    • Andy Green

      Should have killed him. Now he’ll have to look over his shoulder for the rest of his days.

  • MJ Swe

    Wow. Lance rocks! Maybe they should clone him and the thug population would go down quickly.

    • christianh

      Or maybe you should be more worried about the rich buying your government out from under you and education would be a priority… The best way to get rid of thugs…

      • EJA

        Or we could have the death penalty for armed robbery, crack possession or criminal street gang membership…….

        • christianh

          Or we could let the oil and gas barons finishing poisoning the South…

          Then you won’t know…

          • EJA

            Or we could drill for more oil and gas (especially on federal land) so our country becomes completely energy independent and our citizens have more money in their pockets.

            Then we won’t need to import any more oil from the middle east….

          • christianh

            So basically, you’re ANOTHER idiot who thinks we can breathe soot… AWAY WITH THEE VERMIN… Move to Shanghai and you’ll have the pollution you want…

          • EJA

            Only an idiot would want more expensive gas and less energy independence……AWAY WITH THEE VERMIN… Move to Shanghai and you can have all the communism/socialism you want…

          • christianh

            I WANT CLEAN SOLARWIND AND ELECTRIC EVERYTHING… You want choking soot…

            Shanghai has PLENTY… people there are selling air…

          • EJA

            Solar/wind and electric are unable to meet our energy needs. Oil, natural gas and coal are in virtually limitless supply…………the earth is made of them. There are many wonderful things about America…….one of the greatest things is that YOU can leave whenever YOU so desire. Don’ let the door hit you on the way out. No one is falling for the socialism disguised as environmentalism B.S. anymore.

          • christianh

            Maybe you should ask SCIENTISTS and not idiots… Oil is NOT limitless but your ignorance seems to be…

          • EJA

            Are you referring to the SCIENTISTS who said we would deplete all oil and natural gas by the late 1980’s or the SCIENTISTS who said in we were on the verge of the next ICE AGE during the 1970’s? Also I said VIRTUALLY limitless in my post. A person as vastly intelligent as you appear to be can read can’t you? There is a massive amount of oil and natural gas remaining……..the reserves are virtually limitless.

          • christianh

            I don’t remember hearing that but we do HAVE TO pump Methane into the ground to help replenish it…

            Google it…

          • SpencerChaffin

            Where do we get the methane to pump into the ground?

          • Ted Hughes

            The sudden increase in Global Warming/Climate change is going to suffocate us sooner than that. Have you looked out the window this Winter? I live on the East Coast and I am planting Palm and Banana trees today.

          • christianh

            The CORRECT term is CLIMATE EROSION…

          • RM1234

            The oil we produce now is sold on the open market to the highest bidder and does not benefit us at all

          • EJA

            Yea………no one’s 401k has any oil investments in it. Perhaps we should hoard our oil, I will have to give that some thought, but we should definitely drill for and produce as much as possible.

          • bormanator

            Increased world supply lowers the world price. We all benefit.

          • christianh

            We all benefit by looking like Shanghai…? You’re SUICIDAL…

            And obviously a Republican…

          • bormanator

            No, we benefit from lowered prices. We have pollution standards in the US, never will be like China. Have you ever been to the USA?

          • bormanator

            You could give up your car and electricity. It’s a way to make your point.

          • christianh

            I did… Give up my car… I’m trying to move to solar power but I have to own my house…

          • EJA

            You lack the courage of your convictions.

          • Ted Hughes

            Never had an oil or gas baron come in and try to rob one of my shops?

          • Andy Green

            I think a lot of people in this conversation have ADD. When and how does self defense get to solar and wind power? If you have any more of the drugs your on….you should share with the rest of us…

          • EJA

            Christianh is mentally ill. She switched to environmentalism several posts ago and I could not resist keeping it going. I should not feed the trolls.

          • christianh

            I can talk about how you cover up the crimes of the white people in jail while harping on ANY thing done by blacks…

            And when you consider how you discriminate in the justice system, even nerdy black guys want to shove the BS up your ass…

          • EJA

            You aren’t making any sense. If the white people are in jail then how are their crimes covered up? You do not have to answer that……the more you type the more you increase your carbon footprint.

          • christianh

            No, he just forces your costs higher by not paying taxes… Just like Texas is UNPAVING roads which means if you have a small delivery business they have just robbed you, MORON… Or MORAN as you GOPers spell it…

          • Ted Hughes

            Unpaving roads – dustification – Gopers. You’re a truther, aren’t you? Maybe you can clear things up for me: Was it a flying disc or a cruise missile, high power electron beam/particle weapon, external explosive attached to the non existent plane, explosive devices attached to columns/beams, metal beams cut with thermite. Your entire cult following agree on all of the above, but there were only two buildings. Question, were these methods divided up between the building? Maybe I should contact Judy Wood. She knows everything. By the way, capitalization does not make printed words louder..

          • Andy Green

            What? What conversation are you a part of? How does that even remotely relate to this topic…must have your own agenda.

          • christianh

            Simple, I ‘m black and they made it like we all do that but at the same time you have more victims of gunshots than the urban areas…

          • EJA

            You’re an Uncle Tom…….

        • Tyler Herron

          So basically just target black communities with death, right?

          And state punishment > rehabilitation, especially for victimless drug use crimes? Very libertarian of you.

          • Marna McAlexander

            No, Tyler, not “the black communities” as a whole, just those members of the black communities who end up being lawless thugs. There are consequences to our actions and if those actions are harmful to others, you lose your right to remain free, or in some cases, you lose your right to live. I have no sympathy for these thugs.

          • blight14

            Its as if the 99% give the rest a bad name.

          • Tyler Herron

            Except that crack is predominantly a black community drug. And the crimes suggested that we crack down on are predominantly violent crimes committed by blacks. There is no reason to institute a death penalty for voluntarily ingesting a drug or belonging to an organized gang other than blatant racism, as these things are stereo-typically, and factually, crimes committed by minorities. The conservative libertarian movement is a facade to keep whites and corporations in power at the expense of minimal government intervention.

          • EJA

            No……just habitual thug criminal armed robbers, crack dealers, pimps, etc….. We should drone strike street corners in “the hood” where they congregate. A tiny percent of the population (all of which happen to be black) are responsible for 70% of ALL violent crime. Law abiding blacks would be helped more than any other group by their eradication since 90% of all blacks murdered are murdered by OTHER BLACKS. It’s a fact……..you can look it up. Drug addicts should be given treatment….. crack dealers should face extra severe penalties so as to discourage others from doing the same.

          • BaronMatrix

            SO you approve drone strikes in other countries… What about the inbred racists with guns plotting against the government.. Oh yeah, they’re real Americans just trying to make it…

            Like Johnson said, the best way to steal from a white man is to convince him that the lowest white man is better than the best black one…

            You’re clear proof, all of you…

          • Rabbit Hole

            Wait a second … I thought the inbred sociopaths plotting against our country were IN the government! Now I’m really confused (?????)

          • Tyler Herron

            I don’t advocate for government sponsored eradication of a certain group. It’s amazing how people like you can preach the limited government intervention line of thinking when it affects you, but advocate it against groups you have clear prejudice against.
            There is a definite problem in the black community, but you don’t fix it by throwing tax-payer funded police (who have a history of strong prejudice against blacks to begin with) at it. You don’t fix the problem by feeding the prison-industrial complex with more targeted imprisonment of minorities, especially for drug crimes. The fix to a community with a history of poverty and brutal repression is not to suck up more of their tax dollars to fund a war against them, or target their voluntary drug transactions with immense police repression. Education, freed and fair markets, infrastructure, health care, and nutrition go much further than force ever could. If you paid attention to the history of race relations, police corruption, and aggressive foreign policy in this country that should be immensely clear.

            You people are so sickeningly unsympathetic to the condition of the black community that your own race created. But I’m not sure what else to expect when a bunch of older, traditional, sheltered, white individuals conglomerate into an ideology.

          • EJA

            I never said blacks should be eradicated. You can read can’t you? I said to incarcerate violent criminals of all races……..including corrupt cops. Blacks are 100% responsible for the condition of their neighborhoods. 90% of blacks murdered are murdered by other blacks. Blacks are only 12% of the population but commit 70% of ALL violent crime. Of the 12% of the population that are black only a small percentage of those are violent criminals. So really we are talking about maybe 5% of the population max that are responsible for 70% of all violent crime. Each individual is responsible for their own actions. The majority of blacks are hard working people. They are the people most helped when black THUGS are off the street.

          • Nicholas Paulson

            really??? it is my understanding that dealers would prefer to remain undercover and avoid violent scenarios.

          • nathan bedford

            so you admit niggers are low IQ, violent savages that need to be exterminated? thanks, stupid nigger loving liberal.

          • blight14

            Good point(s) NB!

          • Tyler Herron

            What a hateful, vitriolic comment. No I don’t think that blacks are any less smart or any more violent than any other ethnic group. The higher crime rates and lower rates of education faced by black communities are direct onset symptoms of poverty induced by the once legal discrimination and current cultural discrimination faced by blacks throughout American history.
            And no, I’m not a liberal. If I was, I’m not sure why I would be on The Libertarian Republic.

          • blight14

            Oh golly, not the scary concept of ‘profiling’…..LOL

          • Tyler Herron

            The concept of profiling is quite scary. Especially when it results in blacks being arrested at 12 times the rate of whites for drug use and possession, despite actually using and possessing it at the same rate.
            Profiling results in over policing in black areas, not actual crime ridden impoverished ares, with even middle and middle upper class blacks being subject to undue racial discrimination.

      • blight14

        Considering the collective IQ of the ‘thugs’, there isn’t enough cash on earth to domesticate them…….Haiti/Detroit are good examples.

        • BaronMatrix

          I love how your politicians say things that even Borneo MudMen know is bullshit but black people are stupid…

          And how GOP voters can’t spell for shit but black people are stupid… You’re supposed to be great but YOUR kids aren’t raising our test scores…

          Again why the rich are poisoning the South and taking the money and running..

          • EJA

            When did you first start hating black folk?

        • BaronMatrix

          Considering the collective IQ of your GOP POLITICIANS, thinking of how dumb you southern whites must be HURTS MY HEAD..

          They don’t support science because you can’t spell it… At least blacks can use discrimination as a reason… What’s your excuse…? No one kept you yokels out of the better schools…

          No one burned down your houses for having skills…

          You sir are a sucker AND a coward…

          • EJA

            You are such a racist uncle tom………..

          • BaronMatrix

            But dumbass, Uncle Tom means I forgive or defend you… NOT!!!

          • EJA

            You are such a racist uncle tom….

          • BaronMatrix

            Wow, you said the same thing again… And again you confuse the meaning of words.. That’s a CONTRADICTION , idiota…

          • EJA

            Why do you hate blacks? Why do you hate brown people?

          • EJA

            When did you first become racist?

          • EJA

            Why do you hate black and brown people so much…….what did they ever do to you?

          • BaronMatrix

            You’re an idiot.. I’m what people would call a negro or black person…

          • EJA

            If you are black then why are you racists against blacks?

          • EJA

            Why are you a house negro?

          • EJA

            A black person who hates and wants to hurt other blacks………….that is pathetically sad.

          • EJA

            I’m blacker than you will ever be…….

  • guy r west

    its our right to defend our self’s against those who would do us harm and the police can not always bee close at hand . nor are they always the answer. how ever ide rather bee armed and able to at least try too defend my self and my familey if nessary than too bee at the mercy of some one intent on takeing whats our s or doing us harm God forbid that ever has to happen but if it does ide reather bee ready or as much so as i can

    • Diana Simmons

      Guy: Do you misspell every other word on purpose? Is it a new “thing” to ignore Grammar and Spelling?

  • Rationalthinker

    For every action…there is an equal and opposite reaction. In this case, several dead “Yoots”. No biggie…

    • blight14

      The shop owner should have gotten an award!

  • Liberty1941

    The gang members should have remained in their cages and enjoyed playing with their rubber tire swings. The armed public should raid their cesspool neighborhoods and kill all these roaches. If you are a gang member, you are a dangerous criminal and death is your choice,.

  • Devin Manning

    They had criminal records….how did they get guns?!?!…………zzzzzzzzzz

    • Patrick Fallon

      they buy them on the streets or steal them

      • Devin Manning

  • Devin Manning

    Now this is Inspirational story, unlike NFL players coming out of the closet.

    • christianh

      So will you be brandishing weapons more…? Do you say anything when police shoot people or beat them to death…?

      • Marna McAlexander

        Depends on why the shooting occurred. Sometimes it is necessary.

      • Patrick Fallon

        not if they need it

  • Jason Nelson

    Criminals need to be taught a lesson. This is the perfect kind of lesson. Mess with a free person, and you might eat some .44 slugs for dinner.

    • christianh

      Yeah we should pay more for education…

      • Marna McAlexander

        Probably, but you know, you can lead a horse to water….

      • EJA

        We should have school choice……..down with failing schools and lousy teachers.

        • christianh

          You mean like the Charter schools that are graduating less people while costing more…?

          You’re a SUCKER…

          • EJA

            Yea you are right…..teachers unions have done a bang up job educating minorities. You are a very confused person.

          • Richard StJohn

            Dude, pull up your pants, I don’t want to see your boxers. You could say something intelligent like we spend 8 grand a year on education and 40 on incarceration to make your point. But instead you just attack people who support a man who did the right thing. I’ve spent some time on the street. Low life scumbags like this guy shot are in that life by choice. And you know it. So give it a rest. The poor innocent that was failed by our society is a load of bullsh*t.

  • Joe Barnhart

    My “feel good” story for the day. That’s what I call “good” gun control! Putting lead on target!

  • Give that man a public service award. Of course that won’t happen in the communist state of California. He will be lucky if he doesn’t face prosecution for defending himself and his property before this is all over.

    • Andy Green

      our have green peace hassle him for using lead bullets and not steel shot…

  • Mark

    This guy is one cool customer. Trains with the guns, works out, and prepares mentally. You think the gang members would know his reputation and stop trying to rob him. But that would require some rational thinking. We have a little store in a city I work in that has shot 4-5 people trying to rob them, killed a few of them. The locals never try to rob it as the know the employees will come out shooting.

    • Richard StJohn

      Gang members probably did know his reputation and chose him because of it.

    It’s a national disgrace that he had to close his store because of the threats from openly active criminal gangs threatening to kill him.

      It’s a democrat voter infested jungle out there…

      • Andy Green

        Your so stupid! Those criminals probably couldn’t spell vote, muck less democrat or republican.

        • christianh

          It’s YOU’RE…

      • christianh

        It’s no wonder the rich in red states are taking more services away… And paying your pols to laugh at you…

    • christianh

      You mean like the Moms Against Guns who were stalked by “good guys” with guns…?

      • proudwhite

        You are an IDIOT..but your already knew that.

  • ozlanthos

    Sounds to me like Lance was targeted for eviction by another party. They got what they wanted eventually, but not because they scared him, or killed him…and they lost 6 lieutenants in the process of trying to get rid of him…

    God bless you Lance, protect what’s yours from the scum of the earth.

  • Pokkuru

    5 less negroids to plague the world. Good job!

    • christianh

      Wow, I’d love to meet some of you… We could discuss your ignorance…

      • Pokkuru

        Ignorance about what? Negroid crime? I’m very well informed about that, thank you very much. You, on the other hand, have some work to do as far as independent thought is concerned.

  • M. Faze

    Way to go Lance!! You saved the State of California Millions of Dollars trying to Find, Convict and house these Low Lives. Just shows that one race has no regard for the life (or Lives) of others. By showing their ANTI-Social Behavior, and thinking they should live off the HARD Work of others (especially in this case, a WHITE MAN!

    I was a Former Policeman, and the training I received would be one where I would NOT SHED A TEAR for ANY DIRTBAG that pulled a gun on me or others. When they use a GUN, they have a FULL INTENTION of using that GUN. There are many incidents where UNARMED innocent people were killed because the IDIOT didn’t want to be Identified later. This is why I support the Second Amendment, and I will carry a GUN (Registered of course) and use it if need be! Pray to GOD I won’t need it. But PRAISE GOD IF I DO!

    • christianh

      Yeah the white one that locks up people for fun while taking food out of the mouths their own poor children…

  • sacj7

    EVERYONE (in my opinion) should have the right to defend themselves.

  • Ralph Haines

    If you are facing a jury trial NEVER say that you shot to kill. Shoot at the center of mass if possible and ALWAYS say that you shot to stop the lethal threat. Juries will look more favorably on you if they think you were not out for blood.

  • antilib

    We must never allow them to take our guns away. The criminals will always have guns. All their zones make me a criminal because I refuse to be a victim and leave my gun in the car.

  • Larry Dawson

    3 of them lived…that’s the bad part

  • theking

    the more gang member wanabes u can shoot, the better the world will be!!!!

  • hausding

    Very well presented…..and the issue of his concern for his customers is not lost on us. Good story about one mans gumption and fortitude to do what should be done a lot more often. Very glad he is still with us today………….oh, and that reporter doing his interviews should probably grow some gonads.

  • You da man Lance, fine shooting

  • Zulu Tango

    good for him…..and we don’t “need” a gun….uh huh. I’ll keep my Glock 27 ready to go thanks.

  • NO WAY

    Sounds as if the judges in LA get paid off with lots and lots of cash not to send these scumbags to longer sentence.

  • Guest

    hell to the yes. groups of armed citizens should go around gang-banging the gang-bangers. let 20 people in several pickups roll up on a few gangbangers and let loose with volleys of AR rounds, then spray paint what happened all over the scene.

    the gangbangers would stop quick-fast

  • TeMpTeK

    Now they know what time it is…..

  • Ann

    Wow what a story!!

  • gman68137

    Unfortunately, I heard that the owner had to move out because of threats from gangs. While he’s still in business, he can’t operate as openly as he used to. Too bad a good guy still has to deal with this.

  • Larry Dawson

    good job Lance…wish you would have gotten all of them

  • JPinBJ77

    U couldn’t pay me to sell watches in that section of L.A., but my hat is off to this guy. Tough as nails. Didn’t want it, didn’t ask for it, but he was prepared for it and dealt out the punishment with deadly force! May you find peace and freedom from harrassment, Lance.

  • Lem Renrek

    Gee – notice anything in common with all of these robbers?

  • Glenn Hamilton

    Good job!! Its in this person’s mindset. Its all attitude, knowledge and memorization and training engrained in your mind. This makes you a split second quicker than the complete scumbags entering this man’s store. Shot placement training is necessary. This man did it all! Saying that, he is lucky he is alive!

  • David Michael

    He’s right though. Too many folks arm themselves with the belief that drawing the weapon will bring the encounter to a swift end. They’re not prepared for the escalation of the event and the next step required, which is to pull the trigger. This man defended himself successfully multiple times by learning the hard way how to do it. The animals still won though, in that he had to close his shop and now basically lives in fear. (Actually that was almost 20 years ago so I don’t know if he’s even alive any more) He’s viewed as exceptional for defending himself with violence. That won’t change until the average man can make the criminals more afraid of him than he is of them. In this country, in this day and age, I don’t foresee that ever happening.

  • libeloons

    shoot as many wannabe gang faggots as poss!!!
