A man was shot and hospitalized after attempting to break into a Nashville, Tennessee-area home.
When he kicked down the front door of the Madison, the thief was greeted by the business end of a shotgun, one or more shots from which pulverized his abdomen.
After police were called by the homeowner, the intruder was taken to the hospital for treatment, but his condition was not immediately clear, according to WKRN.
Police told WKRN that the relationship between the homeowner and the shotgun victim are unknown, which may explain why the names of the shooter and intruder were not initially released.
WKRN also failed to report the date or time of the incident, but its report was initially released at about 8:30 a.m. on Saturday and updated a few hours later.
While details are still sketchy, this would appear to be an example of the intent of the Second Amendment to the Constitution: You keep and bear arms to protect you, your family and your property from people who want to steal, rape and kill.
