Old Man Charged With Felony After Shooting Two Robbers In His Own Home

Just when you think the gun laws in this country, and justice in general can not get anymore upside, something like this happens and you realize it is still going to get a hell of a lot worse …

The Gateway Pundit reports: An elderly man in New York was arrested for shooting two burglars in his house, not for murdering the intruders, but for shooting them with an unregistered gun.

“He was in the kitchen when he heard people in the garage coming up the stairs to the kitchen. When they got to the top of the stairs he told them to stop, but one started coming toward him. He fired three or four shots and struck both.”
That’s how the scenario played out as 64 year old Ronald Stolarczyk did what he had to do when two burglars had broken into his home. This being in New York, police quickly arrested Stolarczyk and charged him not for any form of homicide, but for illegal possession of a firearm, because the gun he used to defend himself and his home had been inherited from his father and not registered.

The Truth About Guns reports: Scenes from life in Governor Cuomo’s SAFE Act paradise: an upstate homeowner has been charged with a felony after he defended himself from two home invaders with what prosecutors are calling an “illegal gun.”

“He told me that when they were coming up the stairs, that as they approached him, that he was scared to death and he thought they were going to kill him. One of the troopers said, ‘did you see anything in their hands?’ He said, ‘I didn’t look at their hands, I just saw them coming at me and I thought to myself, at that point, that it’s either them or me,’ and he just started firing,” (defense attorney Mark) Wolber said.

The homeowner, 64-year-old Ronald Stolarczyk, shot and killed Patricia Anne Talerico and her nephew, Nicholas Talerico. But Stolarczyk hasn’t been charged with a homicide. At least not yet. What has police concerned is the handgun Stolarczyk used.

…Stolarczyk is charged with felony gun possession because investigators believe he used his deceased father’s gun, which he never registered to himself, to kill the two suspected intruders.

So Stolarczyk’s father either gave or left the handgun in question to his son. Under New York’s famously restrictive gun control laws, the son wasn’t required to undergo a background check to receive the handgun from his father. But he did need to have a pistol permit to legally own the firearm and have it registered in his name.

The Gateway Pundit Reports: The incident happened in Deerfield, New York, about 40 miles east of Syracuse, in Oneida county.

To make matters more infuriating, it turns out that the now-room-temp pair had previously robbed Stolarczyk. But Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara is shifting the blame for the robberies to Stolarczyk, calling him a hoarder and implying that he was just asking to be robbed.McNamara said “a large amount of property” believed to have been taken from the initial burglary at Stolarczyk’s home was discovered at Nicholas Talerico’s apartment in Utica during the investigation of the shooting.

Stolarczyk was charged with criminal possession of a firearm, a felony. The weapon was a 38-caliber Rossi revolver, according to the court paper. Stolarczyk said the gun had belonged to his father, but he hadn’t registered it after his father died.

McNamara said his office typically prosecutes unregistered guns where the homeowner is present as misdemeanors, and not felonies. The first priority is to get the gun registered, he said. It’s not unusual for a family member to die and the gun gets passed onto a relative who doesn’t register it right away.

The handgun was checked, and Stolarczyk’s dad purchased it legally from a local dealer, the DA said.

Stolarczyk has been released from jail on some form of pre trial release, and his next court date is August 5th. However, the state has now seized the home and Stolarczyk has no place to go. WKTV reports “Stolarczyk is being provided with temporary shelter and benefits through Social Services.”

          Vote Cuomo out and get someone in the governors office that will stand behind the ones defending themselves. Not the criminals.

    That’s a bullshit law by the Delusional Democrats that needs changed his father left it to him. Nothing in the Constitution says your gun needs to be registered.

    that is about the dumbest thing i have heard. The NY government does not want the people to protect and defend themselves. that’s called control by the Demacrooks so that they can run your life. it is time that someone like Ronald Stolarczyk sue the state of NY for violating his right to protect and defend himself in his own domain. this story really pisses me off to the max.

    NY is a close second behind California for the state where freedom and rights take a back seat to the politics of the governor. If our founding fathers were to rise from their grave and see what the once free and beautiful country that they built turned into, they would be heartbroken. NY State doesn’t have long. Over a million people a year are now leaving and the financial loss is already being felt. Cuomo is the worst thing for the state and will bury it. He is bitterly hated in all of upstate and Northern NY. The support from NY City is all that kept him governor. No one wants to come and live in NY anymore. It was once such a great state to live in.

      How well I know,born and raised in NY, but had to leave due to the high property taxes. So glad I was able to get out when I did. Now live in a beautiful state with low taxes, good gun laws and would never go back.

    This is what the democrats are. They want to destroy America. They are the product of decades of colleges and high schools brainwashing them to hate America. And they took his house? Yet want to take care of criminal illegal immigrants over an American citizen. God I hope Trump gets reelected and the House goes Republican. Thank god Trump won. I can’t imagine America of the Democrats ever get control of the government again.
