As reported, a homeowner used his gun to scare off two nighttime burglars.

Police say that a homeowner was asleep in his Lexington, Kentucky home when a burglar broke down his front door and forced his way inside.  The homeowner reportedly awoke to the noise of the home invasion, grabbed his gun, and went to investigate.  Upon encountering one of the burglars and fearing for his safety, the homeowner is said to have fired a few shots in self defense.  Although the burglar was not hit, he and his accomplice reportedly fled empty-handed, leaving the homeowner unharmed, according to news reports.  Police are seeking the suspects.

This is yet another example of guns being used for self defense, without even the criminal suffering harm .  Anti gun statistics don’t count such uses, despite the fact that the majority of the 2.5 million defensive gun uses each year don’t result in even the criminal being shot.  Remember: guns stop crime and save lives,

    Did they have lettuce, pickles, onions, tomatoe, ketchup, mustard, and cheese on them?

      Ah, I see the title read "burgars" instead of "burglars." Although I am unsure whether the intruders were equipped with lettuce, pickles, onions, tomato, ketchup, mustard, and cheese, that typo has been fixed :)

        "that __type__ has been fixed", and a new typo has taken it's place in comments, lol. 😉

        Wonder if the robbers had sesame buns…

        Sorry, I'm just in a weird, sleep-deprived teasing kinda mood, lol. 😉

          Hahaha sharp eye – I did indeed typo the word "typo" in my reply.

          Although, while we're on typos, take a look at your spelling of "tomatoe" in your first comment 😛

            Oh, rats, foiled at my own game!

            Tomato… tomatoe… I could have been talking about a kind of toe known as toma. 😉
