Floridians Are Almost As Heavily Armed As Texans

The Bad Guys haven’t gotten that memo. Hillsborough homeowner shoots intruder, suspects on the run.

Deputies said two Spanish- speaking men with medium builds broke into the front door of the home in the 7000 block of Lawnview Court around 3 a.m.

Amanda Granit with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office described what happened next. “The husband does what I think many of us would do in this situation and grabs a shotgun,” said Granit. “He was able to confront these suspects and fired once, hitting at least one of the suspects.”

The would-be bad-guys ran like rabbits. Police are still searching and looking at local hospitals.
