91-Year-Old Defends Himself

Without some means to equalize physical differences, the elderly would be at the mercy of the young and the violent. Nude, Gun-Wielding 91-Year-Old Man Helps Make Arrest of Home Intruder - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com

When about 7 headlines jump out of at you from a Google search about a naked man, defending himself, you have to say something.

Of course the fact that he was naked when faced with an intruder is completely beside the point.

Self-defense is a human right.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said Robert E. Thompson was awoken Saturday morning after a burglar climbed his backyard fence and was met by his charging dog, Rettt, a Rottweiler and Doberman Pinscher mix. Thompson heard the commotion, grabbed his .38-caliber revolver and phoned police without ever getting dressed.
He was able to hold the intruder until police arrived.
