On Saturday night, Feb. 23, a Texas homeowner shot an intruder in the leg, according to a report by Lubbock Online. The man heard someone in his home in Slaton, a Lubbock, Texas suburb, and after checking on his three children in their bedrooms, the man realized that there was an intruder in his home.
The father cornered the intruder at gunpoint in his dining room. The intruder repeatedly ignored the father’s commands to get on the ground and when he moved towards the man’s wife, the father shot him in the leg.
The intruder then made his way out of the house and passed out on the front lawn. He was airlifted to a local hospital when it was believed that his injuries were life-threatening, however, he is now expected to live.
With NBC’s weeklong series “investigating” “gun violence” in America, which exploits deaths that occurred over a weekend in January in an attempt to gain acceptance for gun control, the Little Rock Gun Rights Examiner has started its own series in an effort to help show that guns not only take lives, they very often save them. The series will highlight 30 days of guns saving lives. This is story number 13.
