On Thursday night, Feb. 21, around 8:00, a Houston family was in the middle of baking a cake when they were attacked in their own home. There was a knock at the door and the father saw a young man standing at the door who he presumed was a friend of his son. Upon opening the door slightly, three armed intruders then violently forced their way into the home, as reported by KHOU.
After forcing their way in, the intruders then knocked the father down to the floor. They then proceeded to go after the mother. At which point, the son grabbed his father's gun, shooting and killing one of the intruders. The other two intruders quickly fled the home, but were soon caught by police.
No charges against the son are expected to be filed, as he was acting in self-defense. According to the report, Harry Moulder, a neighbor of the family, stated:
"People can’t go breaking into people’s homes and not expect some sort of consequence."
The young man was just doing what he had to do in order to protect his family.
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 eleven.
