A North Carolina woman recently got the opportunity to confront the man who broke into her home and deliver a message that he’s sure not to forget any time soon.
Keri Reeves, armed with a gun, managed to chase off Ralph Goss who was later picked up walking outside some woods near Reeves’ house.
Fox Carolina has more details:
According to investigators, a woman at the home was armed and pulled her gun on the suspect, who fled the scene.
That woman’s name is Keri Reeves and she spoke with FOX Carolina following the incident.
“I immediately thought, he going to get a gun he’s about to shoot, me I’m not about to die in my own house,” said Reeves. “This could’ve been a very different situation had I not been properly armed.”
She says after she phoned the Sheriff and realized the seriousness of the situation, she was shaken up.
“I’m one of those people that can go from zero to a hundred in 2.5 seconds and I’m not a nice person normally, but as soon as I got on the phone with the sheriff’s department he was out of sight. The severity of it hit me, and I was in hysterics. I was crying, I was scared, I was very shaken.”
Deputies confirmed Thursday that the suspect, Ralph Jake Goss Jr., 33, was arrested and charged with burglary second degree, petit larceny, and possession of burglary tools.
Deputies said they found Goss walking out of the woods along Matthew Drive Wednesday. Items belonging to the victim were found in Goss’ possession, deputies said.
Goss appeared in bond court on Thursday where he was confronted by the victim.
“You came within 2.5 seconds of having a full clip unloaded into your skull,” she said. “Next time you will have the full clip unloaded.”

This is a perfect example of why it’s so important for Americans to stand up boldly for their Second Amendment rights. If this woman hadn’t been armed, this story would’ve likely ended very differently.
Guns, in the hands of highly trained and responsible individuals can and often do save lives, like they did here for Reeves. Gun grabbers absolutely hate stories like these because it destroys the progressive narrative that guns are the root of all evil.
Real wickedness exists in the world. All you need to see that’s true is to turn on the evening news. No amount of gun control, knife control, or whatever, is going to solve the real issue plaguing our nation.
Since we know these laws do not work to stop evil, why not try a different approach and encourage responsible gun ownership? Why not help people be safer and to protect those things which matter most to them?
We can’t erase evil from existence, but we can at least be prepared for its arrival.
