As reported, a disabled Las Vegas, Nevada senior citizen reportedly used his gun to stop a home invader.

Police say that just after midnight, a home invader kicked in the door of a house located in a quiet neighborhood.  Upon hearing the unexpected noise, the homeowner reportedly grabbed his self defense gun and went to investigate.  After finding the intruder, the homeowner is said to have fired in self defense, fatally wounding that intruder and putting an end to the home invasion.  The disabled elderly homeowner was unharmed, and his neighbors are said to have come over the following to day to help repair his door.

Few unarmed senior citizens can fight off even a single a younger, stronger, and faster attacker – even if that attacker is unarmed. When that senior citizen is also disabled, things are even worse. The result the result can terrible for that elderly citizen, as well as their loved ones.

Armed senior citizens, on the other hand, have the best possible chance of defending themselves against attack by criminals. This armed 85 year old woman held a home invader at gunpoint, and made him call the police on himself. This armed 93 year old man shot a home invader in self defense after the home invader began to attack him. This armed 70 year old woman held an intruder at gunpoint until the police arrived to arrest him. This armed 91 year old man used his handgun to fend off two home invader who had broken in and threatened his wheelchair-bound wife with their guns. This armed 84 year old man used his handgun to stop a criminal who repeatedly tried to enter his home through the front door, back door, and a window. I could go on with more examples, but the point should be clear: gun ownership saves lives every day and allows crime victims to defend themselves against even the strongest of criminals.
