How should an 82-year-old defend himself against a 24-year-old assailant? Without access to a firearm, that is. Deputies: Man killed by homeowner after apparent home invasion
He’s working in his garage, when a 24-year-old breaks in through a window and threatens him. Good thing he was armed.
The homeowner shot the intruder, according to deputies, killing him.
Without access to firearms, the old and the infirm would be at the mercy of the young and the violent. The small could be overpowered by the large, and anyone can be overpowered by multiple assailants. The reason we use tools is so that we don’t have to face the reality of the jungle with just our bare hands.
No charges are expected against the homeowner, because self-defense is a human-right.
