The Bad Guys Still Haven't Realized Texans Are Armed

Home invasion. Barking Dog. Armed Resident. Alerted by dog, Sugar Land man shoots intruder | Houston & Texas News | Houston Chronicle

You would think by now that the bad guys would figure this out.
[Doug Adolph, Sugar Land Police Department spokesman,] said the resident, who has not been identified, was asleep when he heard his dog barking.

The resident woke up, grabbed a pistol near his bed and went to the front room.

He opened the front door but saw nobody.

When he closed the door and turned around, he spotted a man near him in the apartment.

The man rushed toward him. Fearing for his life, the resident fired once, hitting the man in the chest, Adolph said.
The resident stepped over the guy - who had fallen down - and called 911. While he was on the phone, the would-be-bad-guy got up and ran.

A man with a gunshot wound to the chest was picked up later at local hospital.

Self-defense is a human right, and in Texas it is your legal right. [via [KABA]
