As reported, a criminal went to the back door of a Georgetown, KY home at 2 AM and knocked. When no one answered the door, the criminal kicked in a window and made his way inside the home. The home owner was waiting for him – with a shotgun. The criminal was held at gunpoint, until the police arrived and arrested him.
When a person’s home is invaded by a criminal, their life is in danger – and complying with the criminals demands is no guarantee that they will refrain from harming the victim. Running away from the criminal often doesn’t work out any better, and is often not a viable option due to the need to protect one’s spouse, children, etc. However gun ownership can often prevent those tragic outcomes, just as it did here.
