As reported, a Spartanburg, South Carolina homeowner used his handgun to stop multiple home invaders.
Police say that a man was laying on the couch in his home when an attacker began pounding on the door and then shattered the glass, as part of a break-in attempt. The homeowner reportedly grabbed his self defense gun from a bedroom, and fired when he saw a home invader’s hand reaching through the door. Several home invaders reportedly screamed then fled, and a suspect suffering from a gunshot wound is said to have arrived at a local hospital shortly thereafter. The homeowner was unharmed.
Criminals often work in groups, using superior numbers to overwhelm their victims. When that happens, even the strongest unarmed victims can be overpowered by the criminals, with deadly results.
When that crime victim is armed, however, things can be quite different. One of the best things about firearms is that they allow a single crime victim to defend themselves against multiple attackers. Here, this homeowner used his handgun to fend off multiple. Similarly, this man used his handgun to defend himself against 3 violent men who broke into his apartment. This business owner used his shotgun to stop 4 armed robbers who where pistol whipping an employee and threatening the lives of everyone present. This mother used her handgun to defend herself and her young children from a pair of home invading prison escapees, while this woman used her gun to fend off 4 home invaders. This man used his gun to save himself and his wife from 4 armed robbers, while this 91 year old man used his handgun to save himself and his wheelchair bound wife from a pair of armed criminals who invaded their house. Armed self defense works, and it is often a crime victim’s best chance at avoiding harm.
