Imagine that you go out thinking it’s a typical night of robbing people of their stuff. You rob because you’re too lazy to go out and earn money for your own stuff. You break in through the garage hoping you’re not going to set off any alarms… BUT you do. Instead of turning back you think, “well I’ve come this far and hell, I’ve got a gun!”. SO after your pep talk to your ol’ dumb self you move further into the house. What happens next comes as a complete surprise to you. Instead of running into some cowering old folks, you run into a man with guts. Not just any man but a man with the moxie to actually disarm you, then shoot you with your own gun. Aw shucks, why’d they have to go and do that?
This is actually a REAL story that happened Tuesday morning (around 2am) in Jackson County. A homeowner protecting his family, took a gun from the assailant’s hands and shot him in the gut. The robber was listed as critical but the homeowner was listed as the biggest friggin’ stud in the neighborhood! Hell yeah… Police arrived shortly thereafter as the home’s security system was triggered and notified the police.
The husband and wife were uninjured but I’m guessing they were pretty shaken up. It’s not every day you disarm a criminal and use their gun on them. Local news spoke with the homeowners neighbor who said that his neighbor woke him up at 2am to say he shot someone and asked him to call the police for him.
The neighbor told reporters that, “He said someone was trying to break into his home. He got the gun from him and shot him.”
I guess he sure did show him. I really wish criminals would read more stories like this to remember that crime sometimes only pays in lead— to the stomach!
