As reported, a burglar broke into a residence on the 1500 block of Autumn Village Drive at about 11PM on Wednesday in Columbus, Ohio.  Several residents were home at the time of the break in, including the homeowner and his 5 year old nephew.  Police say that the homeowner was cooking dinner when he realized that a criminal was breaking into his house, grabbed his nephew, grabbed his gun, and ran for the upstairs. The home invader continued his advance, at which point the homeowner shot the criminal while holding his young nephew in the other hand.  None of the home’s occupants were harmed.  When police arrived, they found the body of the home invader, along with the gun they believe the home invader was carrying during the attack.

Had this homeowner been unarmed, the burglar could very well have harmed him and his family, including the young child.  Fortunately, this homeowner was armed, and was able to save himself and his family from this violent attack.  Also fortunate for this homeowner and his family, they live in a state with a “castle doctrine” law, which protects him from being criminally charged for defending himself and his family from a violent home invading criminal.

    you would hate to think that Obama lied to the people is got to be the scariest thing I have read in a long time.I don’t know who it is that I am addressing but are you serious. you really believe the lies that are being handed to you on tv. Man you are just the problem we have in this fascist state that we live in. ignorance of the truth does not change it my friend. I was wondering is it dark in that hole that you live in and are the sides closing in so that you cant turn your head and you can see in only one direction.

      The fascist state we live in? You are either retarded or joking. Nazi Germany was fascist, you know where they murdered and caused the death of over 50 million people. Get some education before you start using words you don't comprehend.
