British Columbia Couple Uses Paint Ball Gun To Ward Of Thieves, Government Not Happy

BY Herschel Smith

News from Vancouver:

A Chilliwack couple is taking the law into their own hands by shooting paintballs at the thieves who repeatedly rob them.

It’s a desperate tactic that police say could be illegal in most circumstances — but Rob and Nicole Iezzi say they’ve already tried everything else.

“This is a constant problem. It’s an escalating problem in our town,” said Nicole.

The couple say they are not taking this step lightly, saying they have been robbed of iPods, hand tools, Leathermans, and attachments for their truck, at a cost of thousands. One friend’s purse was also stolen from their truck in their driveway, resulting in identity theft.

The thieves have hurt them too, pepper-spraying Nicole in her doorway in a bid to steal her cellphone, and clubbing their Rottweiler to death in the yard when it challenged them.

They tried calling the police, putting up security cameras, improving their fences, and put in better locks but the thieves keep coming back.

So that’s when they decided to fight back — with a paintball gun.

Videos the couple has posted online show them rushing out to challenge thieves, firing paint at them as the thieves scurry away on their bicycles. Even Nicole has fired at one, shooting as he left on the street.

“He came this way and I just pop, pop, pop,” she said.

The couple said they take no pleasure in firing at thieves — just hoping to send the message that their property is not to be trifled with. It was only after some deliberation that Rob, who has a firearms license, decided on paintballs.

“I didn’t want to shoot him with a pellet gun, because you’re going to make him bleed. With a paintball, it’s like getting punched. I didn’t want to punch him, so a paintball seemed like the logical thing,” he said.

It also doesn’t go through walls and won’t hurt a neighbour, he said.

But Chilliwack RCMP are warning that vigilante justice could be dangerous and illegal.

“We understand that people are frustrated,” said Const. Tracey Wolbeck.

Shooting paintballs could escalate a nonviolent property offense into a violent crime, Wplbeck said, and the thief could react, putting the property owner in danger.

On top of that, attacking someone with a paintball could be considered an assault, potentially resulting in charges.

“In extreme cases we could see assault with a weapon,” Wolbeck said.

The cops are doing what cops always do.¬† I just think it’s too bad they didn’t use real guns and kill the perpetrators.

If weapons control is inherently wicked, and I believe it is, it is wicked in the superlative to require peaceable men and women to sit defenseless and allow themselves to be abused by savages while the state prefers criminals over productive, law-abiding citizens.

The government who would do this is a worker of evil and should be¬†overthrown and the government workers hanged for cosmic treason against God’s Holy law.

    Yet another instance that proves that government has ZERO interest in crime, crime prevention or in apprehending perpetrators. Criminals pose NO THREAT their grasp on power therefore those in power DO NOT CARE what criminals do. That is why the insanity of “gun control” is proveably not about guns, crime or safety. It’s only about the holy grail of those in power…CONTROL.

    The use of indelible Cattle Marking paint balls (the original purpose of these devices!) allows “marking for future identification” – just sayin’ ….

    I guess its time to replace the paintballs with marbles or bearings and stay out of sight. Just insert them into gun wearing gloves. OR, maybe try ice cubes and a sling shot, and the RCMPo-Po can try getting fingerprints off a puddle…..

    What the Police does (or better NOT does) is called Anarchotyranny.
    The law-abiding are threatened and punished because the cops know they will not fight back.
    The criminals are not touched because the cops know those people fight backand are willing to hurt and kill. And the cops want to go home save at the end of their shift.
    And the politicians like it too, because now they can enact all those privacy-intruding and disarming laws and tell the world how tough on crime they are. And they are elected again and again because nobody sees through the smokescreen that the crminals are not touched and only the law-abing suffer.
    And before you can say “Hello”, we live in a tyranny.

    To the couple: Ever heard of Black Ops?
    “No officer, I was watching (insert popular TV-Show) and when I heard screaming I ran out to see a hurt perpetrat., sorry victim, and a big guy jumped into a (most sold car in the state). No, I could not see his face. It was covered. But I do remember one Thing. This guy yelled “Death to all fascists. Long live Antifa!” before he drove away.

    The Po-Lice are the Gang that Protects the Other Gangs, first the criminals in the ‘government’, then the ‘street gangs’ who are allowed to Exist for the purpose of Terrorizing the Honest Citizen, for the purpose of ‘government’ taking Money to fund its ‘Gang’.

    When the Time Comes, the Crips, Cops, Bloods, MS-13, Los Lobos, etc. need to be “Dealt With” in exactly the same manner as Cockroaches.

    These people are an Example of why you must NEVER give up your Guns.
