Yet another homeowner has successfully utilized their Second Amendment rights by turning the tables on a brutal young thug who was looking for an easy score against an elderly man who had been the victim of multiple robberies.
81-year-old Buddy Cates of Genoa, Arkansas was taking out the trash when he was suddenly confronted by 18-year-old Shemar Harris who also goes by the aliases of “Pablo Bouta’bag Harris” and “Marblow DiNero” who pulled a firearm on him.
Mr. Cates proved to be the wrong senior citizen to mess with because he himself was packing heat and he quickly drew his own gun and exchanged gunfire with the punk.
Young Harris was no match for the gun-slinging grandpa who ventilated the little bastard’s ass and sent him shambling off in his saggy pants bleeding and mortally wounded.
Pablo Bouta’bag sucked in his last breath in a Texarkana hospital and won’t be committing any more robberies.

As reported by Shreveport-Texarkana-Marshall television station KSLA 12 “Fed up, homeowner shoots alleged robber who later dies”:
The man who was shot in a Southwest Arkansas residence has died.
The 81-year-old who owns the home where the shooting occurred says the man had a gun and was trying to rob him.
“Whoever got the biggest gun and fastest will be boss when it is all said and done. … In this case, it was me.”
And Buddy Cates says he has been robbed a half dozen times in the past 10 months.
A Sheriff’s Office spokesman has confirmed for KSLA News 12 that deputies have responded to multiple calls to his home.
The shooting happened about 1:30 p.m. Thursday at Cates’ residence on Genoa Road (Arkansas Highway 196) at Miller County Road 290 in Genoa.
That’s about a quarter mile west of Genoa Grocery.
The wounded man was taken to a Texarkana hospital, where he later died. Authorities have yet to release his name.
“I walked outside the door, and he was standing right there with a big pistol,” Cates recalled. “I had my hand in my pocket on my pistol, and the battle was on.”
Authorities say multiple shots were fired.
Cates estimates that he and the other man each fired their guns six to eight times.
The homeowner has been interviewed by Miller County sheriff’s detectives.
No charge has been filed.
The thug was identified by his friends via social media including one who posted the following implied threat on Facebook – “Buddy done shot Shamar, They gone get his white a**” and also “We Gone miss you SHEMAR”, authorities should pay this gal a visit to be sure that Mr. Cates isn’t targeted for a revenge attack by friends of the dearly deceased.
The punk leaves behind a history of trouble with the law and was just arrested in August for trying to steal several boxes of ammo from a sporting goods store and he broke an off-duty police officer’s wrist after he was confronted.
Sad to see that he didn’t get any more time than that but his thieving days are now done and the taxpayers in the Razorback State will have one less career criminal that they end up being stuck with the bill for housing and feeding.
