When a homeowner has a break-in it is more than just an invasion of their privacy. It is an attack on their sense of safety and security. So you can imagine the anger that a Georgia homeowner felt when he was surprised by burglars who broke into his home a second time, reported Guns n Freedom.
The homeowner who was on an afternoon lunch break called 911 and as was to be suspected the police would not arrive in time to deal with the three thugs. Enough was enough and the homeowner decided that he had the only type of justice these three thieves would understand. He , “at that point pulled out a personal firearm and fired, striking one of the suspects,” commented Capt. Stephen Fore of the Dekalb County Police, according to Guns N Freedom.
The homeowner’s quick and purposeful action resulted in the wounding of one of the three burglars. While the other two disappeared into the neighborhood, the police were able to find the wounded suspect and arrest him.
Although the homeowner did not want to be named, according to Guns n Freedom, his defense of his home and property has definitely sent a message to other possible perpetrators. If there is a third burglary of his home they may not be so lucky with just getting away with a wound.
