The father was a constable.
There were two purported “intruders”. One was an adult; the other underage. The adult was shot several times and had to be flown to a hospital.
How stupid. Burgle a constable’s home? In Texas?! You gotta know there’s gonna be: 1) guns in that house; and 2) people who know how to use them.
I’ll bet that neither intruder can read or write beyond a 6th grade level.
How many lives are taken with assault rifles each year? How many are saved? Some lives are saved by assault rifles without ever even picking the weapons up. How many would be burglars who were planning to break into someone’s house tonight, read this story of a burglar being shot by a teenager, and decided maybe it would be better to forget burglary and get a job at McDonalds?
Because of this story, a bunch of would-be burglars have changed their minds, and bunch of AR-15 owners will never have to shoot them except at the firing range. Stories like this are saving the lives of both homeowners who might otherwise have been burgled, and burglars who might otherwise have invaded someone’s home.
How many lives were saved today by assault rifles that were merely present–but not even picked up–in American homes?
