A registered sex-offender in North Carolina was in for a surprise when he broke into a home early Friday morning. According to a report by WITN.com, the homeowner confronted the intruder and shot him twice. The offender then left and drove himself to the hospital in fair condition.
In an article in The Truth About Guns, author Dan Zimmerman asserts:
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. YOU are your own first responder. No matter how many police officers cover your neck of the woods or how efficiently the respond, they simply can’t be everywhere they’re needed the moment they’re called.
We can only guess what may have happened if this homeowner wasn’t armed, but this intruder’s intentions surely weren’t good!
