This is why the statistic about a gun being used to kill “someone you know” is a red herring. (Or an outright lie.)
Investigators with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office said the 66-year-old man, who was not identified, was shot after entering the home of an acquaintance without permission.
The 66-year-old man is believed to have brandished a firearm while he was involved in an altercation with the homeowner, who also was not identified, officials said.
So he went to the house of someone he knew – though they don’t say how well – “brandished” a gun. He was shot for his trouble and died in a local hospital.
Self-defense is a human-right, even when you know the person who is attacking you. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
