The number of home invasions in America has been on the rise over the past decade. This is why more people have purchased firearms. They want to be able to defend their home, their family and themselves. I personally know a number of families who have guns in the home when they never did before and it’s because they are afraid that what happened to a father of two in DeKalb County, Georgia.
At 12:20 am this past Thursday, three masked men, all brandishing guns, broke into a home of the man in Georgia and began shooting at him when he tried to resist and defend his home. He managed to grab his own gun and shoot back at the intruders, who then fled. One of the intruders was found dead outside in the parking lot.
(Atlanta Journal Constitution) – A father home with his two children wrestled with a masked intruder, grabbed a gun and shot him to death early Thursday, DeKalb County police said.
About 12:20 a.m., three people broke into the man’s Covington Glen apartment in the 1700 block of Thicket Way and fought with him.
“They had handguns,” Lt. Rod Bryant said. “They started shooting at him.”
The man retrieved his own gun and fired back at the intruders, according to police.
“They continued to exchange rounds,” and the shootout spilled outside, Bryant said.
The masked intruder was found dead in the parking lot. He had on a pair of gloves, Bryant said…
If the father had spent more time practicing with his gun, it’s quite possible that authorities would have found 3 bodies. If that happened in my house, I can guarantee there would have been 3 bodies, since I’ve been shooting guns since I was 4.
This is why so many Americans have guns in their homes.
