When one of the intruders leaned over his wife, McCue said that’s when he grabbed a handgun he keeps at his side.The injured goblin is in the hospital - no word on his condition. The other guy was arrested later.
The burglars fled, threatening to kill McCue, state police said. Fearing for the safety of his 1-year-old daughter and pregnant wife, McCue, a hunter, gave chase and fired one shot down the stairway and struck a man ... in the head.
Meanwhile, [homeowner Keith] McCue said some are praising him as a hero, but he doesn’t see it that way.The anti-gunners in the neighborhood are giving him "icy glares," but that is par for the course. (Anybody with a gun is a criminal in the eyes of anti-gunners after all.)
“I don’t consider myself a local hero. I just consider myself someone who protected their family. Anybody with children would have done the same thing,” he said.
Self-defense is a human right, and I believe that parents have a moral obligation to protect their children.
