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.”

    This is unbelievable. Isn’t this man going through enough trauma without the state messing with him as well? So now he’s on the street, possible felony charges, and nowhere to go for what? Because 2 people came into his home uninvited with malicious intent and he defends himself with the only thing he had. C’mon, New York have you lost your collective minds and reasoning. What if it were you… what would you do?

    Why is the state seizing his home and he is being forced to live at a shelter before he has been convicted? He is being treated like a criminal when it was self defense! This is very offensive and he needs a good lawyer!

    why was his home seized ?? Oh maybe he should have waited until they killed him. what were they doing in his home. they robbed him once and ok for they to come back and rob him again or maybe kill him put a hole and the back yard put him in and take over his property as relatives. i hope a good attorney steps up to the plate and defends this poor guy. this is the biggest bunch of bull shit . Break into your house and you get punished that right there is telling people oh it’s ok go ahead and rob and one you like it’s ok.

    Why did they take his home? This happened some weeks ago, I remember reading about it at the time. I think it is unjust for a person to protect himself in his own home to be charged and kept in jail for some time. This elderly man does not look at all healthy and I am sure this has been hard on him. I am proud of him to think to protect himself when he had two unwanted people coming at him from downstairs.They found some of Stolarczyk’s possessions at one of the homes so they had been there before. Just because he had not registered that gun in his name does not appear to me to be a felony are do I see it justice to keep the man in jail, and confiscate his home so he has no where to go.Is this really justice? really law? or is iit the lefts opinion of poor, elderly people.

    Any infringement on our right to bear arms is an infringement and is against the constitution. If he is a legal citizen is is not the government role to interfere with his right to bear arms. Those who have arrested him should themselves be arrested and sued.

    tyrannical government!!! This being a well regulated militia!!!! As far as I’m concerned the robbers got what they deserved!!!!! New York
    is a bunch of MORONIC IDIOTS!!!!! New York should be sued from
    HELL TO BREAKFAST for taking gun rights away from people. I will

    We know this is outrageous for LEO to do. This prosecutor needs to go. He doesn’t have to prosecute. Thank goodness both intruders were killed. They deserved it. The Constitution allows citizens to have guns. NY law is unconstitutional and should be repealed. LE has become more like Hitler’s SS. If we don’t fight for our rights, we will lose them. Just go to YouTube and view the Copwatch videos. You will see so many LEO’s violate peoples rights. Yes, there are a lot of smartass photographers but they are spreading truth about LE.

    This is horrible. He was scared and they could have killed him or hurt him and put him in the hospital. What happened to the right to be safe and protect yourself from intruders and robbers, killers. He should not have any charges and this is insane. This law was passed by people who want to strip people from owning guns and doing just what he did, defend himself. I hope he gets off period. How dare they steal his home and force him on the street… the lawsin NY are upside down and protect the criminals and not the law abiding citizens like him. SHAME ON THE IDIOTS WHO PASSED THESE LAwS.

    This is so terribly wrong and it is against our 2nd ammendment to be able to defend ourselves and our homes. On top of everything they not only seize the gun his father gave him, but also seize his home????? What is wrong with the government in New York????? Oh yeah….Very democratic!!!!!!!!!!!!
