L.A. Gun Owner’s Carry Permit Revoked After Opening Fire on Intruders

A Los Angeles father and husband who opened fire on an armed intruder earlier this month said his concealed carry permit has been taken from him following the incident.

“After successfully defending my home and my family and my 5-month-old child, California has now decided to suspend my Second Amendment [rights],” Vince Ricci said.

Ricci told Fox News that the sheriff’s office told him Thursday morning that his concealed carry permit was “revoked” because of the ordeal.

Surveillance video show Ricci walking toward his front door as his driveway gate closes in the evening on November 4 as a pair of intruders are soon seen in the video scaling the wall next to the gate.

Video shows Ricci react instantly, first by tossing his tea at the intruder and then pulling his gun and opening fire.

The NRA said the revocation of Ricci’s CCW was “reprehensible.”

“His decisive actions to protect his wife and daughter embody the core principles that NRA members fight for every day,” NRA spokesperson Billy McLaughlin said in a statement.

“It’s reprehensible that California is shredding his Second Amendment rights after he defended his family. Governor Newsom and Gascon’s pro-criminal policies have transformed Los Angeles and the wider state into what resembles a war zone. The NRA stands with Vince and every responsible gun owner in California, firmly committed to defending their rights to protect their families and communities.”

From The Blaze:

Fox News said California law allows legal U.S. residents over the age of 18 to carry firearms on private property and residences without a permit or license — and since the shooting took place on Ricci's property, it would seem to call into question any decision to take away his concealed carry permit.
