Just add this to the long line of defensive gun uses that you won’t read about or watch on the national news:

According to officers, two men kicked their way into the house.

The homeowner told police he shot one of the men in the leg as the second man ran off.

Police said the man who was shot went to the hospital.

Officers were still looking for the other suspect.

If the homeowner was not armed, how do you think he could have practically countered multiple attackers, which is the current trend in home invasions? Martial arts? A strongly-worded letter?

A firearm in the hands of a trained person is the best defense a citizen has against criminals, period.
