At 5:45 A.M. today, I woke up to my wife screaming some A@$hole is trying to break-in to our house. She heard a nose coming from the far door, that we do not use. She approached the door and heard a slam, and heard the door handle trying to be turned rapidly. She looked out the window to see a 6' tall Mexican man trying to break-in. He was none-responsive to question of who he was, and what he was doing. I grabbed the nearest firearm to me, which is my carry, Kahr MK9, and preceded out another door to confront the assalint head on. I positioned myself within the 21 foot circle of lethal force. My wife grabbed her Lady Smith 357 w/ Crimson Trace, stood at a 90 degree angle to me (she was in the house pointing through the window). I told the guy to put his hands on his head and marched him to the property line. I called the police (took them 25 minutes to respond). I am outside of the city limits, so I had to wait for an off-duty Sheriff (our rural county has no Sheriff between 2:30am-7:00am). He was taken into custody and charged with Attempted Burglary 1, which is a Felony. He has been taken to the county jail. This is exactly why every able bodied legal citizen should exercise their 2nd Amendment right! If I did not own a firearm, and I just called 911 to wait for the Sheriff the Criminal would have had plenty of time to rape the children and the women, then kill them, and be on his merry way before an Officer would have responded. So keep your families safe, and your firearms loaded.
