Marysville Police: Armed Homeowner Perfect During Encounter with Suspect

Marysville Police in the state of Washington are applauding a homeowner who they say did everything right as gun owner during a recent encounter with a suspect.

Joe Hemrich was forced to confront a man who armed with a baton and just four feet from his child’s bedroom window, according to Q13 Fox in Washington.

“This the first time in my life it has ever come out of a holster, when I wasn’t at a range,” Hemrich told Q13 Fox. “I train so I know exactly where it is, exactly how to pull it out, whether my finger is going on the trigger.”

Hemrich said it’s that extensive training and comfort with his weapon that allowed him to focus on the man in front of him, not on his gun, “which is why no one got shot last night,” he said.

“You have to know how to use it. If not, you’re just a liability,” Hemrich told Q13 Fox of his handgun.

Hemrich held the suspect there until police arrived. Police told Q13 that “… most importantly, Hemrich complied with officer’s commands when they arrived on scene.”

    Where is the video of the Marysville man vs suspect with baton? I would like to see how it was covered, as well as hear the police comments.

    Thumbs up on protecting family and nobody getting hurt!

    Didnt watch the CNN special on the Florida school shooting, but heard thru other media that Senator Rubio took a lot of flak from the crowd. I am surprised that he agreed to show, given their obvious disdain for conservatives. I can only assume that he chose to face his constituents, which many politicians would not do in his position. He certainly has my respect for taking the flak, while remaining professional throughout the choreographed event.
