Georgia Homeowner Defends Family From Invaders

posted on May 14, 2015

For a family in the metro Atlanta area, having a gun in the home—and knowing how to use it—might have saved all their lives. A homeowner in Gwinnett County noticed suspicious movement on his back patio and went to get his firearm. A short time later, a group of men knocked on his front door and asked him to come outside. With his wife and baby indoors, he refused to leave the home, at which point the men, one of them brandishing a baseball bat, forced their way inside.

The homeowner opened fire, killing one of the alleged invaders and injuring another. The injured man was apprehended at a local hospital, along with a third suspect who may have driven him there. Overmatched as he was, there is little possibility that the homeowner would have been able to drive away the invaders without a firearm. We hate to think what could have resulted had he not been prepared and properly equipped.
