Armed Homeowner Protects 2-Year-Old Daughter

Don't tell Ted Kennedy. These stories do upset him so.

Police say three men busted into a home in a quiet new neighborhood. They then shot the homeowner in the arm; the homeowner returned fire and hit one of the burglars, who later died at a local hospital. According to Tucson police, when they arrived, the 29 year-old home owner and his two year-old daughter had taken refuge in a bathroom. The home owner suffered minor injuries and the little girl was not hurt.

Gun control: Because the right of a gang of criminals to break into a man's home, shoot him dead, and then do God-knows-what to his 2-year-old daughter is more sacred than the right of the homeowner to prevent him from doing so.
