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,
