A homeowner in South Africa used his gun to defend himself and his wife against five home invaders.
News reports say that at about 2:45am, 5 intruders who were armed with knives and crowbars forced their way into a home in Cape St Francis, South Africa and attacked the couple that lived there. The husband was reportedly able to get his gun and shoot one of the home invaders, causing the others to flee. One suspect was apprehended by the police, and the husband was treated on the scene for minor injuries, according to news reports.
Once again, firearms have allowed a person who is at a numerical disadvantage to defend themselves against multiple attackers. Had this man been unarmed, or not armed with the best self defense tool yet invented by humanity, things would likely have turned out differently.
