If You Break Into Homes, You Will Eventually Find an Armed Resident

What would you do if someone kicked in your front door? Deputies: Homeowner shoots, kills intruder

Sheriff Bill Leeper had the money quote:

“I would suggest if you’re going to break into someone’s home, be aware that you may get shot.”

The would be bad-guy kicked in the front door. The homeowner, who was asleep on the couch at that time, had a pistol within reach.

Deputies said the homeowner’s 6-year-old son was also asleep in the home, along with the homeowner’s girlfriend.

“This is something that you don’t expect to happen, someone trying to break into your home,” Leeper said. “And it does startle you, and it scares you, and a lot of people have weapons to protect themselves, and that’s what occurred here.”

Self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
