Ricky Dubose and Donnie Rowe wereafter the Second Amendment prevailed once again. The fugitives led police from two states on a 60-hour manhunt that ended in a Tennessee driveway.
Conservatives are cheering after two vicious killers were brought to justice by average citizens exercising their rights to protect themselves under the Second Amendment. Yesterday afternoon, a Tennessee man heard a noise and looked out his window to see someone trying to steal his vehicle. Rather than waste valuable time calling the police, he grabbed a weapon and speed dialed his neighbor. Fairly soon after that, the two fugitives were cowering in the trees at gunpoint. Then the homeowner called the police.
The unidentified homeowner was just looking out for his truck and didn’t take the time to reason things through. fortunately, the fugitives were unarmed by then or a Tennessee driveway could have looked like the O.K. Corral. These guys had nothing left to lose after killing two prison guards Tuesday morning.
Between the time they blasted their way off a prison bus with the guard’s own weapons Tuesday morning, and Thursday afternoon when they ended up face down in the driveway, they did a lot of damage. The duo had once been cellmates. Donnie Rowe was serving life and Ricky Dubose was doing 20 years, both for armed robbery. They were in transit to another prison on a bus with over 30 other inmates. Somehow managing to break through into the driver’s compartment, they overpowered the guards and left them in a pool of blood. As soon as they were out, they hijacked a Honda Civic that had pulled up behind the bus.
Headed North, they raided a house for better clothes and hurried back out on foot. They lucked out after stumbling tiredly into a backwoods quarry. There they found a truck with the keys in it. They ditched that truck when it ran out of gas and stole another car that got them as far as Bedford County. When they abandoned that one, they covered it up with the brush to help hide it.
Up the hill from where they left the car near Shelbyville, Tennessee, the killers forced their way into the home of an elderly couple, overpowered the man who tried to defend his home and tied hi up with a belt. The wife was held at gunpoint. After helping themselves to some stew and the woman’s jewelry, they took the couple’s Jeep and headed out.
A Rutherford County Deputy noticed something about the Jeep that made him pull it over but didn’t know it was the escapees. They were not about to pull over, so as soon as they saw red and blues they gunned the jeep to 100 mph., shooting back at the deputy just for good measure. Several vehicles on the road were hit but thankfully, nobody was hurt.
After crashing again, they headed through the woods on foot looking for another ride and that is when they were finally captured.
Theis also making news this week because of the Bernie Supporter who shot up the congressional baseball practice on Wednesday, severely injuring Steve Scalise, Republican representative for Louisiana.
Observers have pointed out that Washington is a gun-free zone to start with. The only thing that saved the Congressmen that day was the Secret Service detail who was present and armed. Otherwise, James Hodgkinson would have kept shooting until either the D.C. Police got there or he ran out of ammo.
A reporter asked another Congressman who was there at the time if the shooting changed his opinion about the “gun situation” in America. “Not with respect to the Second Amendment,” Mo Brooks of Alabama responded. “These rights are there to protect Americans, and while each of them has a negative aspect to them, they are fundamental to our being the greatest nation in world history. So no, I’m not changing my position on any of the rights we enjoy as Americans.”
