According to the gun-grabbing left, no American needs a gun for self-defense ever, but one 83-year-old man is very happy he had a weapon to ward off an intruder to his Huntsville, Alabama home.
From Alabama Media:
According to a police report, the 83-year-old man said someone in a hooded sweatshirt came to his home in the 2400 block of Dairy Lane close to 12:30 a.m. Saturday. He told police the person said he needed help but then kicked out the door’s glass and force his way in when the resident went to call 911.
The resident said he got his handgun and fired a single shot, which struck the intruder in the chest. The man claims the offender dove out the window and ran away. Police could not immediately find him.
The resident was uninjured and is not facing charges.
According to the police report, a man matching this description allegedly robbed another home just a few blocks away on Chapman Avenue right before this. That victim, a 60-year-old man, said he was asleep in the front room when the intruder burst in and threatened him with a framing hammer. The victim fled uninjured.
Now, who would you rather be, the first guy who defended himself, or the second man who was at the mercy of his criminal aggressor? I can tell you which one Piers Morgan and the liberal left want all of us to be.
