If the home invader had shot a child in an unarmed home, the leftist morons would be going wild about how guns should be removed from the planet.

Awesome! Good for the home owner...

Just get ready for all the lefties on here to tell us how the intruder is the victim and not the homeowner!

The homeowner should have let the dud take what ever he wanted....and made coffee and thanked him for not hurting him.....maybe even a little extra cash to boot!

We need to see more stories like this. Maybe it will send a message to the criminals because they sure ain't afraid of the cops anymore.

I'm assuming this is posted because of the ongoing gun debates but I'm curious what this actually has to do with the debate. Did he shoot him 52 times with an AR-15? If the guy mentally handicapped and wouldn't have had a gun otherwise? Was it purchased at a gun show because he couldn't get it normally due to failing a background check? If none of those apply then i'm pretty sure...no...completely, absolutely 100% sure the homeowner would still have been able to protect themselves.

Are you saying that the CBS Evening news should carry every homeowner shooting? Isn't that what local evening news is for...Homeowner shootings, fires, and local meth lab drug busts?

Please don't clog my Evening news with..a list of good shootings for the day.
