Vegas: Citizen With AK-47 Stops Home Invasion

posted on July 4, 2015

Anti-gunners who like to deride semi-automatic rifles as “assault weapons” and want to ban ownership of them likely won’t be talking about a Tuesday morning incident in Las Vegas where an armed citizen with an AK-47 stopped a home invasion.

According to police reports, a woman knocked on the door and told the 12-year-old inside she had car trouble and needed to use the phone. When the 12-year-old tried to shut the door to get the phone, the woman pushed through the door and put him in a headlock. After the male suspect ran into the home armed with a gun, the youngster’s 23-year-old brother shot at both of the intruders, with a handgun and then the AK-47, prompting them to flee.

The male suspect later died of his wounds, while the woman was hospitalized.
