A Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Things apparently didn’t go according to their plan. Man reportedly shot in Elmira home invasion identified.

A home invasion early Sunday morning left the bad-guy shot.

The weapon used by the homeowner was reportedly a 12 gauge shotgun; police say the firearm is legally owned by the homeowner.

According to police, there was also a female resident and four young children home at the time of the incident. Lopez was the only person injured.

A blast from a 12-gauge shotgun will ruin your day. Actually he is lucky to be alive. (He remains hospitalized.) The investigation continues. Charges against the guy who got shot are pending. No charges are expected for the homeowner.

That’s because self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
