Gun Owner Chases Off Burglar

posted on December 25, 2015

It was a classic case of an American gun owner protecting himself and his family without ever firing a shot. 

A family was watching a movie in their Newton, Kan., home last weekend when they heard someone moving around upstairs. Unbeknownst to them, someone had broken into their house and was looking for things to steal. 

When a family member went upstairs to check, the intruder began to scuffle with him. But after the homeowner brought out his handgun, things calmed down quickly. 

“As soon as he saw the gun, he was gone,” Lt. Scott Powell with the Newton Police Department told The Kansan.
