Police in Brisbane, California, a San Francisco suburb, responded to a call of a home invasion with shots fired yesterday.
According to abc7news.com,
When police arrived, a man was found at the home with fatal gunshot wounds. The resident was safe inside and now, cooperating with police.
“We don’t have quite the details yet, it sounds like it was the intruder was the one who was shot,” said Michelle Moneda, public information officer for Brisbane Police Department.
Firearms are used hundreds of thousands of times a year in this country. If the total number is even roughly distributed by population, that means over 100,000 of those defensive gun uses happen in California. That’s 100,000 assaults, robberies, rapes and murders prevented.
