In the video interview above [click here or on the image to view], the Las Vegas homeowner says he saw three men stalking the house. One broke in with a mask and a hammer. The homeowner fired two shots. His rifle jammed. The intruders ran off. From ktnv.com . . .
Investigators say a homeowner shot at a man he believed was breaking into his home. The suspect was able to escape.
The homeowner’s semi-automatic rifle was a pistol caliber carbine chambered in 9mm. The rifle seems to be the newer version of the Feather carbine using GLOCK magazines. Feather rifles made before 2008 use UZI style magazines. The Feather pistol caliber carbines are commonly found in the political lists of “assault weapons”.
You may notice that reporters and news directors around the country are backing away from the previous policy of spiking or ignoring armed self defense stories. Local media are realizing that viewers and readers are interested in defensive gun use (DGU).
I expect that we will see more self defense stories with pictures of the firearms used in the future. With each successful DGU people see, gun ownership and gun rights get a welcome boost. While bad guys get a shot across their bow.
