A homeowner in Flint Township, Michigan shot and killed an alleged intruder late last Thursday night, the details remind us why 2A is so important. 

An 80-year-old man was home late one night when an alleged burglar broke into his home and confronted him. 

The alleged burglar soon realized the errors of his ways when the homeowner drew his fireman and shot the man. The alleged burglar died on the scene. 

The homeowner was taken into custody by authorities but soon released. 

This story is quick and simple but it could have very easily gone another way. The homeowner was not exactly young, being 80-years-old, and while some old timers can still throw a mean right, it would not be fair to say they all can. The alleged intruder was only in his 30s, take the firearm away and the homeowner could have very well been killed by this man. 

Firearms remain the great equalizer in this world, the physically weak can stand up to the physically strong and so on.

The individual is always the first line of self defense. This is a perfect example of this as there is no way the police would have arrived in time to help this 80 year old man from being injured or even killed by the intruder. He was able to protect himself from a much younger man with his firearm. The second amendment was written expressly for this purpose.

While the title is technically correct, it sure carries a negative connotation vs. the more appropriate “Homeowner Shoots Intruder in Self Defense.”

Well the idea is that as we get older we don’t have the physical strength we once had. Firearms serve as the great equalizer in our world and this story highlights that effectively.

As the sheriff in florida says, it is a zero chance of the criminal will commit another home invasion and besides it will save the taxpayers money..
