A 64-year-old man in New York is facing criminal charges simply for defending his home.
Ronald Stolarczyk fired on and killed two robbers, 57-year-old Patricia Talerico and her 27-year-old nephew Nicholas Talerico, after they broke into his house. Stolarczyk not only saved his own life, but also kept his house from being robbed yet again according to a police report.
Unfortunately, he has been charged with the felony possession of an “illegal” handgun, and his house has now been condemned. Stolarczyk now faces these felony charges because investigators believe that he used his deceased father’s gun, which was never registered under Stolarczyk’s name, to the kill the suspected robbers.
To add insult to injury, Stolarcyzk was deemed a “hoarder” by the District Attorney simply because of his collection of Commodore and Atari computers.
In all likelihood, Stolarcyzk’s case will be take up by a pro-Second Amendment law group. However, this incident goes to show that the Second Amendment is still disrespected by state governments in certain parts of the country
