As reported, 20 year old Javorous Darnell Tims of Pascagoula, Mississippi tried to invade a home by climbing in through the window, at about 1 AM. The woman whose home was being broken into awoke and got her son, who grabbed his handgun. The son shot the would-be home invader in the chest, causing him to flee. When police arrived, the home invader was found dead on the ground, about 80 feet from the window. None of the home’s occupants were harmed.
Home invading criminals are a deadly and terrible threat for every man, woman, and child in the residence. Victims of home invasion all too often suffer torture, rape, kidnapping, and murder at the hands of criminals who care more about a few dollars than human life.
The good news is that gun owners like this man can, and do, stop such criminals every day. Gun ownership spared this woman and her son from this home invader, and also ensured that this criminal will never again be able to hurt another innocent person. And this is yet another reason why I support gun rights.
