As CNN reports, Houston police said three or four people broke into a home in the 10000 block of Foy Lane. The suspects were armed with guns, and at some point in the robbery they shot the home owner, who then managed to get a gun and return fire.  One home invader was killed and another was injured.  The home owner is expected to recover from his injuries.

This is yet another one of the countless examples of citizend defending themselves with a firearm.  Indeed, Americans defend themselves with guns every 13 seconds, saving countless lives each year. I certainly hope that I never suffer a home invasion such as this home owner suffered, however I fully intend to be prepared should a criminal break into my home to cause harm.
