Disabled Veteran Uses Gun To Save His Life

A disabled veteran near Savannah, Ga., recently used his privately owned firearm to fight off two home invaders, possibly saving his own life.

According to local media reports, the home invasion occurred early Wednesday morning at a mobile home community, where the veteran woke up to two people breaking into his home saying they were police. But when he saw on his surveillance camera that the two suspects were not police, he grabbed his gun.

Police reports indicate that when the two suspects made it into the trailer, they allegedly fired at the homeowner first, prompting him to fire back. Although no one was hit, the assault was ended because the homeowner had a gun to protect himself. “My gun saved my life, yes it did,” the homeowner told WTOC.
