A Lockland, Ohio, man is alive today thanks to owning a firearm and knowing how, and when, to use it.
According to police reports, on Tuesday afternoon the man was in his home when four people entered the residence and threatened to kill him with a knife. The homeowner grabbed his gun and shot one of the assailants in the chest, killing him.
The three other suspects were still on the scene when police arrived and were questioned. “He defends himself, quite naturally,” Lockland resident Dwayne Palmore told local media. “What would you do if somebody came in your home?”
