New York man facing illegal weapons charge after killing 2 burglars in his home says gun was father’s

By Brie Stimson
A 64-year-old New York state man who was arrested for possession of an illegal handgun after he fatally shot a pair of prowlers rooting through his home Tuesday afternoon reportedly told the district attorney the weapon he used in self-defense was his dead father’s and he forgot to register it.

Ronald A. Stolarczyk was charged with felony possession of an illegal handgun, New York State Police said in a news release.

At about 2:40 p.m., officials say Stolarczyk interrupted a man and woman burglarizing his home in Deerfield, New York, located about four hours north of New York City. Stolarczyk then shot the two suspects, according to police.

But the 64-year-old was later arrested after authorities said they determined the handgun used in the shooting was illegally owned.

Sarasota Waffle House shooting ruled self-defense

By: WFLA 8 On Your Side
SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA) – The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a man they said instigated a fight that broke out at a Waffle House that led to three people being shot.

The Sheriff’s Office says Alan Castillo, 22, started a confrontation on May 22 with one of the men, ultimately provoking a fight by punching one of the victims, even after the victim attempted to walk away.

Deputies say the victims were acting in self-defense when one of the men shot Castillo because he was outnumbered.

Castillo was charged and released Friday on a $10,000 bond. He has been charged with Battery.

Tough one to score, so read for yourself here: WFLA

The score today, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes, is a difficult total of a mort Trifecta, four inconvenienced and one in the wind. There’s a lot wrong with New York, but throwing a man in jail for defending his home is low, even for NY. Governor Cuomo must be proud.

Love ya like a brother, AW1Ed – and I’m a huge fan of Goldwater. The quote is one of my personal favorites.

But Goldwater didn’t originate the article-ending quote above.

That quote first appeared in print in a 1952 book by Paul Harvey. It’s unknown whether Harvey originated it, but the quote is thought to be older. There are numerous variants.

The quote, or a close variant, appeared in print numerous times in the 1950s. It was used by many politicians over the years, including Goldwater during his 1964 campaign for President and by President Gerald Ford in a joint address to Congress in 1974. (It was apparently also attributed to Ford some 20 years earlier. However, Ford did not claim to have originated the quote; he indicated that he’d heard it from another individual “early in his political career”.)

The quote has often been misattributed to Jefferson since 2005, but nothing resembling it appears in any of his writings.


Addendum: yes – it’s seriously effed-up that someone is arrested and facing felony charges for using a firearm in self-defense during a home invasion. But hey, it’s the New York Soviet Socialistic Republic (NYSSR). What else would you expect?


Nah – some SNS’s were butt-ugly enough to be called pr0n, but that one isn’t that bad. (smile) And if one of those is all you could afford back in the day, it beat the hell out of bringing a knife to a gunfight.

Learned something myself about the quote. I’d always heard it attributed to Gerald Ford, and Ford did use a variant in an address to Congress. But I didn’t know the quote was in widespread use many years prior to that – or that it was being incorrectly attributed to Jefferson – until today.


The “SNS” label is much older than that Davis. It dates back to the later 19th century and a flood of cheap knock-offs of Smith and Wesson .32 top-break pocket pistols.

The term is somewhat truncated from the original. It is based on “N–town Saturday Night” as a term for random mayhem, and the junkers were “N–town Saturday Night Specials”.


“Cano Jr. and his sister, 23-year-old Jessica Cano, broke into the home in order to confront the woman’s ex-boyfriend”

Now that’s a twist on the ex-boyfriend scenario. Usually the one to do the stupid but this guy gets a high five.

Sounds like New Yawkers serious about self defense need to start practicing three of the Four Esses.

Shut Up

Three on the slab is excellent score FIRST thing in the morning. Wonder how many hired gunz is protecting the NY Grubanator? Only sense I could make out of the Sarasota story was, “Hey it’s a Waffle House in Florida, how do you think they’re gonna act.”

A very serious home invasion on going here to Firebase Magnolia. The aromas from the various crocked pots are seriously fighting it out for domination. The porked orasted beast seemed to have a slight edge till the FIRST of the iron skillets of Hallowed Cornbread started browning up. This one is a sixteen (16) incher. All of the others are pea green with envy. Since the FIRST batches of Buttermilk cornbread will be used for the Heavenly dressing, and there will be more baked up, we just had to cut that crusty outside edge off and slather it with butter.

Will Miss Thang want to go boom boom and love me long time GI?


Given what she’s holding there, amigo, you might wanna be very careful how you phrase any statements to her regarding going “boom boom”. (smile)

Good point there Bro, but in my mind she’s pointing that thing and telling me I’ve only got 6 maybe 9 seconds to get nekkid before she body slams me and has her way with me.


Re NY, I guess infringement is both active and reactive action.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Crimes against the State should be made illegal (I’m a thoughtcriminal in NY now).


The Davis was a good ‘carry a lot, shoot a little’ gun. Demonized by the SNS name, it was a hell of a lot better than no gun at all. Lot of equivalent small polymer frame .380s in constant use now. The Sns moniker is about as valid as the “assault weapon” label now, mainly used by anti-gunners to denigrate whatever they designate as criminals’ “weapons of choice” so they can push for bans.


One can not trust the less well-heeled citizen to protect themselves, $ = brains.

Possibly the three peeps who were shot in the Waffle House were out drinking and were really “Waffled”..
