It’s probably safe to assume most people go to bed without thinking they’re going to shoot anyone.

Well a man who was asleep at home has a very good reason to be thankful he owned a gun. When he heard noise downstairs he grabbed his trusty shotgun and headed downstairs.

What he was greeted by was a man he didn’t know, in his house, with questionable motives.

WSCO-TV gives us the full report on who he found and how he fought back.

Deputies identified the intruder as Vernon Dixon.

The homeowner was asleep upstairs when he heard a noise downstairs, officials said. He grabbed a shotgun and went to investigate.

The sheriff said two men broke in through a basement window around the rear of the home.

His father, who lives just down the road, saw two men pull into his son’s driveway Monday morning but had no idea they were there to break-in to the residence.

“Two guys come out from the carport went around to the car parked around back,” father Everett Fox said.

The owner, who called 911 first, had gone there after hearing the sound of a door being kicked in.

Deputies said he shot one of the intruders in the chest who later died on the way to the hospital.

“He had no choice.  I didn’t say a thing to him. He is tore up,” Fox said.

The second intruder, who deputies have not identified, ran off leaving in a dark-colored minivan. The sheriff said under North Carolina law he could be charged with murder because the death happened in the commission of another felony.

“You do have a right to protect your property when somebody breaks in the house on you. You don’t know if these people are coming in to steal your property or coming in to do harm to you and your family,” said Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid.

The homeowner is said to be distraught about what transpired.

That’s to be understood. There’s nothing glorious about taking the life of another person, especially when it’s over something as petty as a few possessions.

But it also needs to be mentioned that if someone’s breaking into your home you should have every right to do what you can to defend yourself.

Police aren’t necessarily going to be there any quicker than you.

So you’ve got be able to defend yourself.

Why don’t liberal gun haters understand that?

    Sad that the perpetrator died, but he made his choice to commit a crime, and paid the penalty for that crime Hope the other criminal is caught and soon, and tried/sentenced for the crime of murder.


    Two Criminals require a Double Barrel Shotgun

      or a slide action or semi-automatic like the Remington 870, Browning BPS, Remington 1100/11/87, Browning Auto-5! Mossberg makes good ones also.
