Default Protecting his family, another one for the good guys

Texas man, 21, fatally shoots intruder during home invasion


Published February 23, 2013

FoxNews.com




A 21-year-old Texas man is being credited with protecting his family when he retreated into his family’s bedroom, retrieved a gun and fatally shot one of three intruders who forcefully entered his home, KHOU.com reported.

The family was reportedly baking a cake Thursday night in their home near Houston when the men knocked on the front door and pushed the father to the ground. KHOU reported that the man thought that the men were friends of his son.

The men lunged for the mother, the report said. At that point the 21-year-old, who was not identified, got his father’s gun and opened fire, killing one of the intruders.

"I just heard a couple of times: boom, boom, boom," the father, told the station. "One young life is lost."

Police later spotted a vehicle with two men who matched the suspects' descriptions and took them in for questioning, the station reported. No charges are expected to be filed against the son.

GOOD ONE! GOD BLESS THE YOUNG MAN! AND GOOD FOR THE DEAD BAD GUY! BULLETS REDUCE AND PREVENT CRIME!
Sharp young fellow there to take actions as quickly as he did! With three of them its outcome would have not been good! I am sure we would probably be hearing about another terrible ending situation. We sure feel sorry for the poor old criminal! Don't we? Goof Job to the young 21 year old! That is thinking and also Done the Texas way!
Did I ever tell you I love Texas! It is one of a few true American States left where the liberal socialist have not screwed up! Not that they have not tried and are continually trying!

Yep Texas it is like a different country, and if the liberals in DC keep pushing their agenda it probably will be, in which case I am moving back as fast as I can
