You come home at the end of a long day’s work, only to be surprised by a burglar who’s rummaging through your things. If ever you needed your personal defense firearms, that’s the time. The home invader comes at you, but there’s a problem — you left your EDC gun in your car. Oh, and the burglar is armed.
The suspect at some point retrieved a hatchet from his waistband and struck the homeowner over the head. The homeowner retreated to the garage where he had his concealed carry weapon in his vehicle. He retrieved the weapon.
By the time the un-named homeowner had gotten his gat, the bad guy had high-tailed out into the evening. Likely bleeding from the head, the now-armed defender wisely dialed 911 rather than taking off after him. A decision Officer Goodman praised.
He held back and called us which is exactly what we want to do. A gun’s for your protection until you can get us there.
True enough. But it’s only really effective if you have it with you. Fortunately, the homeowner’s head injury wasn’t severe. This could have turned out much, much worse. The moral of this cautionary Sooner State story…home carry.
